Question about 1999 GMC Suburban

1 Answer

Will not start

We have a 1999 suburan 198,000 miles. It won't start in the mornings unless starter fluid is used and even then it is hard. The fuel pump is running and we replaced the fuel filter two days ago. The fuel pump was replaced five years ago.

Note: if you have over 109K on the car and the timing belt has never been replaced you will need to have this checked as well.

Not god to use starter fluid, gas in a bottle works. If it starts that way ,my guess would be the fuel pump.

My 1999 caravan does not always shift smoothly while accelerating.its an automatic transmission with 198,000 miles. Is it the cheap gas?

This could mean that your transmission is wearing out, you may have 1 or more solenoids that are wearing out, or you may just need a new transmission filter and some fresh transmission fluid. I would start with the fluid and filter and see if the situation doesn't improve.

I am using a honda of about 198,000 miles what precautions do i take to keep going,the car looks quite good. The model is 1999

Hi there

You'll need to do maintenance check on a regular basis. Basics for that is that on city driving, you change oil every 3 months or 3,000 kilometers. Regularly check the radiator fluid to avoid overheating and lastly... you have the wheels balanced and aligned (camber alignment) whenever you feel a wiggle or when the car starts favoring the right over the left.. almost forgot, brake fluid every year to rid of the moisture that could have accumulated from the lines.

hope this helps

I have a 1999 gmc Yukon it is getting fuel and spark i even sprayed starter fluid in the intake but it still wont start it turns over good but wont start

ok make sure you have good fuel pressure
you must have good spark must fire a spark tester
if all that is good then check compression
and don't use STARTER FLUID on a GAS ENGINE it can blow a hole through the piston
hope this helps
