Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy
My jimmy was running fine even though it has 205000 miles. It started reading hot a little bit ago but didnt seems to be running hot. Got home and parked and it had white smoke f3om the engine. Now it wants to turn over but wont.
Was it coolant that sprayed out somewhere? Have you checked and located the leak? If coolant sprayed all over the engine compartment, probably made it's way under the distributor cap. If water get in there, engine will turn over but never start. Try removing the distributor cap and spraying WD40 all over the inside of the cap and rotor. WD stands for Water Displacement, old trick but still works great .

The problem is most likely 90% head gaskets but could be intake manifold gasket leaking too. Intake gasket has to be checked when intake is removed. Might find problem there if not continue and remove heads. Bars Leak will not work.
