SOURCE: flooding out. using lots of fuel. black smoke

you could have a bad injector spider if the truck is vortec,if not look to the idle air control valve if this part is bad it won't get the right amount of air and flood the truck out, hints why you are smelling fuel, also look at to o2 sensor if this is bad the computer won't adjust the timing another reason you're smelling fuel . hope this helps you and good luck!

SOURCE: Runs rough. Plugs, wires, cap, rotor, timing all

Two problems. First fix the leaking injector o'ring. And when you have the tbi off doing that check to see if the gasket under the tbi is blown out causing the high idle.

check for codes in the PCM if none the I would check fuel pressure and volume. the volume should be about 1 pint in 15 seconds. the fuel pressure should be 35lbs, continually check pressure until the car dies as sometimes a bad fuel pump won`t show up immediately. also change the fuel filter.

The fuel pressure sounds too low. Is it multi-port injection? Check the fuel pressure against your specs for the car and engine. MPFI systems usually require 40-50 psi.

is the check engine on? are there any trouble codes? one posible cause would be a restricted fuel filter, a worn fuel pump, or a restricted exhaust system.

96 GMC Jimmy starts okay but dies after about 10 minutes. It will start again after sitting for awhile, then dies again. Have changed the fuel filter and pump...any other ideas?


If you have replaced the fuel pump and filter I would still check the pump pressure when it wants to die. Check for any trouble codes in the system also.
