Check your fusible links; these are small wires molded into the middle of a bigger wire they are usually located up by the battery cables. When they burn they become discolored and softly flexible. Also check your relays too.

WELL IF YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK WITH THE FUEL SHUTOFF SOL. BUT HAVE YOU BLEED THE LINES TO SEE IF YOU HAVE AIR IN THEM AND IS YOUR TRANSFER PUMP PUMPING?

USA cars, (is it:?) the Check engine light must com one key on.
if not the fuse to ECU is blown. dead ECU, dead EFI,
if the engine will not start , now, then the CEL is stuck on , it can only
go out cranking or running.

fails hot, or cold engine,? or both? ill pretend its dead and cold
1: lost compression, forgot the 60k belt change (cam) and not the belt is snapped and valves in head or bent over (the oldest story on earth)
2: lost spark (all 4 good? or if v6 , all 6?)
3: lost fueling (starting fluid work? test fuel sprayed in to induction?
3a: flooding, soaking wet spark tips, x 4 or x6.

My 99 jimmy wont start, i can hear my fuel pump kick on when i turn the key. the jimmy will fire up and die right after that.


If the ECM will not get any signal from the crank sensor it will shut off the engine, so I will suggest have the truck scanned and if it says no crank signal then change the crank sensor.

Changed fuel filter and now it wont start,,,how


You may have air in the injecter pump.You need to crack the lines loose at the top of the injecters.Just loosen as many as you can reatch.Back them off about 1-1 1/2 turns of the nut.Crank until you see the dielel squirting out without bubbles and re-tighten them individualy as the air is bleed out.When changing fuel filters try and fill them with disel as high as you can and then try to manualy prime the system while opening the bleeder valves.Well hope this helps and good luck.
