Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My 1995 GMC Sonoma in the mornings the rpm is beyond 4 rpm then after awhile it's below 1 rpm. When I drive it doesn't want to accept the gas it jerks, replacing will quit running in the middle of the street. It makes a noise when it shifts. When I back up it quits but it always crank back up. These things just started...need some advice of what to do.

check your connections in the fuse box, they may not be making a good clean and tight fit, they could have pushed out the rear of the fuse box

Pull plug wire and install a philips screwdriver into the plug wire get it 1/4 inch away from a good ground and crank the engine over, is there spark? if so check that you have fuel pressure buy renting a fuel pressure test kit from schucks or auto zone and turn the Key to run position with the gage hooked up, it should read 50 PSI turn key off and wait 20 seconds should still have 20 PSI of fuel pressure, if no fuel pressure check fuel pump relay, then check fuse to pump. if you have a bad relay and are not getting fuel then check the oil pressure switch to see if you have oil pressure at the switch if no pressure then the oil pressure safety switch has died and needs to be replaced and should stark after replacing. If you have fuel then check the timing to see if you slipped timing belt.

SOURCE: I have an 96 olds aurora and its barely running

if you are getting a miss fire or arc and losing most of your spark you can check this by waiting until its either dark out or in a dark garage . better to do it at night . get a spray bottle - fill it with water and go to your car . while the engine is running ( get a freind to help if the car wont stay running on its own . have him or her push the gas peddle just enough to keep the car running at idle speed ) you take the spray bottle and spray over the plug wires , valve covers, manifolds . turn out any flashlights and look for a blue spark. or blue flash. make sure everything that the plug wires are touching is wet. if you see flashes and or here snapping sounds then there is your answere. you have a bad plug wire or wires. if that fails to answere your problem check the coil. it depends on how bad the coil is but it can range from starting and running in drive and neutral ,but will die or run very rough when put in gear.

I have a 2000 gmc sonoma when the gas gets below a half tank its hard to start it will also die while ur driving it and it backfires when you try to start it but only when it gets below a half tank


There is a metal chamber that is in the fuel pick up line about 1/2 way up designed to take the pulsation out of the pump.If the o rings are bad or the pump has been changed (some mechanics take the pulsator out and replace it with fuel line but if they didn't use fuel injection line it will only last like a few months.)
Either way sounds like the tank has to come out.

1995 GMC P-UP 4 wheel drive will not engage. Worked fine last night, got up this morning and it would not engage. This model GMC has the manual shift in the floor.


Drive forward, put it in neutral, the into reverse. If you have not used the 4wd for awhile it will need vacuum to activate and disengage
