Hit the bottom of the fuel tank. This jars the fuel pump. If the truck starts You need a pump. Common problems to GM is the pump.

There are two ways to replace the pump.
1) Drop the tank
2) Take the bed off

Your choice. Full tank of gas then #2 but other than that go with #1

I have a 1998 gmc jimmy, with a bad knock sensor. However, I do not know where to start looking!!! This is a 4x4 with a 4.3 ltr vortec engine!!!


Your shop manual should show location, or if you don't have one, most parts stores have component location charts that may help.

Just won't start! fuel pump ok, filter ok, psi ok, turns over just won.t start


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, or a list of other things.
Even the fuel pump.
If this is a vortec V6 it takes at least 60psi to cover the injectors.

What should the fuel pressure read on a 1998 gmc z71 5.7 vortec


sounds like your fuel pump, should be 50-55psi fuel pressure, if you don't have a gage,you could check the schrader valve on the rail with screw driver,watch out if it's pressurized it could squirt in your eye's if it shoot's out really strong,chances are it's working, but if it just does little squirt or dribble, then check it out electrically, fuse,relay etc:before you drop the tank, or like some people do take box bolts out and lift box back and it's easier to change pump then.good luck and any other questions feel free to ask me

I have a 1997 GMC Jimmy with a 4.3L Vortec V6. It will turn over but won't start. It's getting fire and fuel. All the dash lights come on when the ignition is turned on and you can hear the fuel...


On the vortec engines they require 56 pounds of fuel pressure to start a few pounds shy of that you have a dead vortec you will need a fuel pressure guage to verify

I have a 4WD 1998 GMC Jimmy 4.3L Vortec V6 and it started running hot then it shut off and wouldn't start back up... do you think there would be any way to fix without replacing the whole engine


IS THEIR WATER IN THE OIL? CHECK THE PLUGS TO SEE IF THEIR WET.YOU MIGHT PUT SOME PLUGS IN IT IF WET TO SEE IF IT WILL RUN.THEN PUT SOME HEADGASKETS ON IT.BUT IN REALITY NEW MOTOR WOULD BE BEST.

Gmc yukon turns but will not start dont hear the fuel pump on in the fuel tank


With ignition key on run, use test light to verify you have positive & ground to fuelpump. No power (positive) check fuelpump fuse. No ground check fuelpump relay. If both positive & ground fuelpump needs to be replaced.

4.3 L Vortec problem, can anybody point me in the right direction


check the temperature sensor for the computer. it may be telling the computer that the engine is still cold and causing the engine to run too rich at warmer temps
