Have a 1995 GMC Sonoma and was driving one day and overheated the truck died and will not start now what could it be! It will start by pulling the truck and popping clutch


Why did it overheat, did you fix the overheating? Are you saying it cranks good but won't start? If it cranks good but won't start, check fuel--spark--compression. Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. If the battery is down, we can't do any testing. At the starter motor motor, two voltage circuits, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other voltage circuit goes hot with key in the crank position is wired through clutch switch. The starter motor grounds through engine block. Any testing at starter make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. You can have the starter motor tested.

Will crank but wont start


When an engine overheats, they should be shut off immediatly when any warning lights come on, or the temp. gauge reads extremly high. At this point, under extreme heat, your valves will heat up, get soft and bend. Your pistons will melt holes through them and your rings will break. Depending on how long the engine was ran in an overheated condition, your might have an engine with NO OR LOW COMPRESSION.

1999 sonoma I turn the heater to floor position and truck dies


If the heater works in other positions than i dont know if I can help you. When you turn on the heater it opens a valve from the hot water in the radiator and diverts it to a small heater under the dash. If you do this in very cold weather you may be dumping a cache of cold water in the tube into the engine chilling the motor if it was recently started. if it has been running and heats fine, then you have either a straight electrical or electrical/mechanical flaw. the cable opening the duct to the floor could be pulling on some wire and causing it to misoperate. Follow the cable to the vent and see if there is anything in the way. and yes you will have to stand on your head with your feet on the head rest to track it down.

Fuel pump fuse keeps popping


You have a short to ground or the pump is starting to go bad. You can run a seperate wire from the hot side of the fuse to your pump to see if it is the pump or if you use an ohm meter to check the wire and the pump. Get's a little technical though.
