Your starter might be getting stuck you might have it checked to see if it is working right but it would'nt hurt to have it replaced this doesn't cost much to have replaced.

I have a gmc Yukon denali. It wouldn't start and

Sometimes new starters have to be shimmed so that the gear on the starter lines up with the gear teeth on the flywheel on the motor. The grinding noise is the reason I say that is what's wrong. If there were shims already there, try taking them out. I hope this helps you

Why does my 1995 GMC safari van not turn over when I start it? It comes on, but it doesn't turn to start the car.

sound's like the starter motor packed it in! the starter site's on the drivers side of the oil pan right next to the tranny under the van, if u can remove it u can have i checked at a local napa or pepboys

Once in a while my 2003 gmc safari will not start. i turn the key, here a click but engine will not crank. I wait for a while then starts normally. van has only 35,000 miles. could starter be bad already?

Could be bad starter. Miles don't matter, only how many times you start the car. I would first check for corroded or loose connections between battery and starter solenoid..

Gmc safari van cranks over, but will not fire up or start.Have tried starter fluid and still no start. Has plenty of crank,but no start

I had the same problem with my 2000 GMC Safari two years ago....drove me CRAZY!

Sometimes it would start right up...other times it just would crank and not start.

It turned out to be a cracked coil....I found it by using a spray bottle with water in it, and "misting" the engine, at night....with the engine running. (On a night when it DID start!)

It took a while, but finally the hairline crack let in some water and the electrical short showed by a spark coming out of the coil.

I replaced the coil with a new one, and it has never "not started" since.

Evidently the coil cover gets brittle and develops small, hairline cracks due to heat from the engine. the way....I tested the coil it showed that it was fine!....but it took the "misting" at the find the spark "leaking" out.
