If it is a V6 fuel injected then either your injector heads and fuel lines may be clogged, go by a container of cleaning fluid for your injector heads, not the one for fuel lines. The one for injector heads will clean both. just pour it into your gas tank and let it sit for five mins then start your vehicle and run for five more mins. Let me know if this solves your problem.

SOURCE: Changing fuel pump on a 2001 GMC safari van

Most of them ,you squeeze the bulk head ,the connector and pull,and wiggle them off,but they still use the ones it takes a tool to remove the lines,they are not expensive,and are available at the parts store,if they are plastic,then they more than likely squeeze to remove,but still are difficult to remove

SOURCE: 2001 GMC Safari does not start unless starting

Better have the fuel pressure checked for starters. Even though the pump comes on, your fuel pressure might be too low. Lots of GM vehicles are finicky about proper fuel pressure, especially at start up. It could be a weak pump or failed fuel pressure regulator-a pressure test will sort it all out.

But it should start if you put the Starting fluid in. Is there any spark at the plugs ? Try to pull the one of the spark plugs wires and put it close to a metal space then crank it again and see if there is any spark , You can hear it sparking.

DO'ES THE VAN TURN OVER ? DO'ES THE VAN HAVE THE FUEL PUMP RUN LONG ENOUGH TO BUILD FUEL PRESSURE?IF YOUR FUEL PUMP AND STARTER ARE WORKING THEN CHECK FOR FIRE TO THE PLUGS. YOU MAY NEED TO GET THE CODES READ TO FIND THE PROBLEM IF YOU HAVE FUEL AND FIRE.ONCE YOU GET THE STORED CODES,REPLACE THE SENDER THAT CAUSED THE CODE OR REPAIR THE WIREING TO IT.

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..

Try changing the fuel filter and checking the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. The readings should be 60 to 65psi with the fuel line pressurized with the engine not running, once the engine is running. It should drop by 5psi. Start with the simple things first. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

Wont stay runnin


It sounds like the same problem I have on occasion with my 1994 GMC Safari van. You need to check your AIC valve ( air intake control) it may be bottomed out wich is the reason it starts but will not stay running. Now I also have another possilbe solution ckeck to see if your catlist converter is not plugged . Not shure why but these are some of the solutions that I have for what happenes to my van . Hope this info can be of some help.
