Check the wire harness from the frame to the gas tank. Lots of road salt collect there and after a few years the conntction go bad.

Are you aware of the stall problem that is caused by a fauty ingintion switch? Contact the dealer with your VIN in hand ask them if you fall under that recall.

I have a 1997 gmc jimmy and it is hard to start when it is cold i think its a choke problem.


Hello,
The choke on your vehicle is a computer controled fuel system. It is usually a fuel pump but sometimes a Distributor cap and rotor problem. I would first check the distributor cap and rotor. Look for white corrosion in the cap and in the bottom of the distributor. If you see the corrosion in the bottom of the distributor clean it out with brake cleaner.The Coil wire some times fails causing a hard start situation. I suggest checking these things before doing any thing with the fuel pump. I would also replace the fuel filter and spark plugs if you do end up replacing the cap and rotor.

I hope this helps.

Sounds like fuel problems. Turning your car in any direction has nothing to do with it. I assume your car is fuel in jected. Also that you have had the plugs , wires , cap and rotor replaced. If not do this. Then if you still have the problems the fuel presure has to be checked. That requires an inline gage be attached to check the presure while engine is running. If thats okay, then the fuel presure regulator might be sticking. Of course things like water in the fuel take and filters all need to be checked. Im sorry that its a big job. If you have to pay someone itll cost you money. If they just replace parts (guessing) thats no way to go about it. So plugs, wires, cap and rotor.replace. Then fuel delivery. I suggest you get the book for 15 bucks from autozone. Good luck

97 jimmy wont start


If it starts with starting fluid, this means the firing and electrical is fine,however, its not getting fuel. I suggest trying the fuel filter first,but, its probably going to be the fuel pump.

Check for a bad distributor cap and or rotor..........a bad cap and or rotor can caues firing (cross fire)across the terminals and introduce spark to the wrong cylinders at the wrong time.......
hope this helps.....good luck!

I had a problem just like that on my blazer and it turned out to be the wire harness on the fuel injectors. It could also be your fuel injectors, had to replce mine at 85000
