Question about 1999 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

Car starts, runs a few seconds then stops.

My 2000 Hyundai Elantra starts, idles for a few seconds but then dies right away. Before this it was idling rough. I sprayed some carburetor cleaner into the air intake while the car was running thinking this might clean the air intake a little - the car stopped running immediately. Could I have shorted out the Mass Air Flow Sensor with the carburator cleaner?

Also, to help solve the problem, I’m looking for the Fuel Pump Relay to check it, but I cannot find it.
It is not listed on the menu on the relay box under the hood, it is not in the fuse box in the passenger compartment. Where could it be?

So far I have replaced the fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator and throttle position sensor.

It sounds like the idle speed is set too low, and it is taking the PCM a few moments to figure the correct setting. If the engine is new, or new to the vehicle, perhaps the engine idle speed setting is incorrectly set too low.

Assuming you saying it cranks and cranks and then starts, but runs alittle rough or even dies when stoped or idleing, then it might be your 0xigen sensor, needs replacing. Hope this steers you in right direction. Let me know mike

My 2000 Hyundai Elantra, 2.0 liter automatic, has been dying at stops when it is in gear. could it be Idle actuator? or what else could it be?


IT could be the forward band or reverse band or pump in the g/box are holding on instead of breaking drive at 600 rpm,as its like putting in the clutch on a manual box it frees off the drive.
But you could check the Actuator but i would say check the bands by when stopping slip into N if idles ok then its the box Sorry
Let me know how you get on Ron

Car stalled and won't start again


Sounds like it might be either the fuel filter or the fuel pump, cause if you ran the tank down, you probably had sludge in the bottom of the tank that you sucked into the engine, you can try using a fuel system cleaner, you may have sucked sludge into the injectors running it, Zmax sells a fuel system cleaner, or there is one called RUN RIGHT, I would try putting some of that in letting it sit a few min then after it sat a few to soak in and break down the sludge, then start the car up, kick your idle up to around 1500 RPM do not go higher then that cause you will damage the engine, try that and see if that works for you, if not then I is probably the fuel pump or filter.
hope this helps.

Engine high rev at stop and slowly goes to idle speed.


I've got Hyundai Lantra 1.6 year 2000. It's take time to start when it's hot. When I start my car it revs at about 2k-3k rpm. It also does it when I come to a stop. When I come to a stop it will stay at a higher rpm than that of idle speed. It drives ok when on freeway but uses more petrol. I have changed the water & petrol pump but no luck
