Do you hear the pump come on briefly with key in run, not start? You should check fuel pressure-some parts stores rent a fuel pressure tester for small fee. Or try this: spray some starting fluid into the air intake when trying to start. If it starts and runs a few seconds, you know you have a fueling problem- pump or injectors or something with the fuel.
Always check for trouble codes with a no start. If checking for spark and have no spark to the plugs, then it could be the crank position sensor. That sensor is crucial for the computer to figure spark timing. But if no spark, it could be other things as well, like the cam position sensor, ignition control module, or a problem in the circuits for all these. The crank sensor is just an educated guess for no spark-not a certainty.
Since it won't run, you can't go to have the computer scanned for free at a parts store-do you have any friends or relatives with an OBD-2 hand held scanner? Just to check for any trouble codes, but do check for fuel and spark.

SOURCE: took off this morning and the escape started

you are right, its probably the fuel filter. wow 113120 miles without changing the fuel filter. also, change the air filter and have your intake manifold cleaned. this will greatly improve acceleration and fuel economy. best wishes - hotratchet

SOURCE: I have a 1998 K2500

Hate to say after the fact, just maybe non of the pumps were bad
I would only work on that issue when I had a complete vehicle wiring diagram to study,or at least all of the fuel system.
Relay,bad or loose grounds,almost anywhere that drops something effecting to fuel system,any modules if applicable.
Kind of a logic problem,with a twist of testing. Can't do anything without a window into your issues (The Wiring Diagram)
A loose wire on the ignition switch,pulled out of it's terminal. Any other things stop working. See why I want all the wiring schematics!

Wen time tochange. Time belt on 2003 gmc envoy


from what i can gather, the 03 envoy has a timing chain, which isnt projected to need service during the life of the vehicle.

if the engine gets over 200,000 miles, you might want to change it, tho. i dont think gm expected them to last that long.

P2176 code


NO , gas cap not the issue here . the P2176 refers to throttle actuator control system - idle position not learned .... the test for this is a mile long , i would try clearing the code , and see if it returns , or it will reset itself if it see's 3 drive cycles without a failure . cheers.
