1992 GMC Sierra Won't turn over

A week ago the temperature was above 0 for the first time in weeks and I had been regularly starting my truck and driving it around. Well today I went out to start it to go to work and it started turning over but would not fire up so I thought it was just cold and did not want to start. So I brushed off the snow and went to start it again but this time nothing happened. The accessories all came on, the lights worked, everything was normal the engine just would not turn over. I do not know what to do anymore, It's been a week sense it stopped turning over and I have not had the chance to check the starter because of the snow we've been getting. Is there anything it could be besides the starter? If anyone needs anymore information I'll try my best.

    So the first step is to take my battery in and get it checked out? It's warmer now (about 34) and I tried cranking it agaian and nothing happened still. But thank you! I will take my battery in tomorrow and get it checked

You either need to charge the battery, or you've got a bad battery. It's easy to power lights and radios, but turning an engine over, especially in cold weather, takes a lot of cold cranking amps (in other words, a fully charged and good battery.).

    Yes. EIther put a good charger on the battery, or take it in and get it checked, and charged, if it's good.

1997 gmc sierra 3500 won't start

When you turn the ignition to start, do you hear the starter turning and the solenoid engaging the flywheel ? test your starter by jumping it and see if the engine turns over. If this works, then you might consider in checking fuel pressure. Do you have any codes in your ECM ?

If i understand you right the truck has been sitting for two years.If it has been sitting that long without running or moving the gas has turned to varnish...I suggest that you drain and refill the fuel tank,and replace the fuel filter located on/in the frame rail on drivers side.

Truck will not start

your fuel tank has water in it and in cold temps it surrounds the filter on the pump and ices over cause gasoline ges way colder than water

No heat

Some of your hoses may be clogged up. I suggest having your radiator flushed and your thermostat changed. The thermostat causes more or less water to flow according to water temperature. This is what keeps your engine at a good temperature.
