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 .

SOURCE: 1999 GMC Jimmy Running Hot w/ Engine coolant reservoir empty

Hi
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.

There is a "Kill switch" that shuts off the fuel pump whenever a crash is detected. It should be located where this is at in the owner's manual ... When you say "Kind of Loose" are we talking "I can rattle the key a bit" or "I can pull the key out with the ignition in the 'run' position" ?

Do you have a security system? Some jeeps have a factory system and you unlock the pasenger door with the keys to turn it off. Could also be the crank sensor.

2000 GMC Jimmy wont start. Seems to crank just fine but wont turn over. Sprayed starting fluid in and it didnt chug or do anything but keep cranking so I dont think it is fuel related. Any suggestions?


check for a spark if no spark and no fuel to feed bar for injectors ,then try spare key if that doesnt work then its dealer only to look at immobilisor

96 jimmy shuts off while running and will turn back on, changed control module and the throttle body and MAF sensor. told by dealer to change this and problem would be fixed, problem not fixed.


i have had problems with the fuel pump relays heating up and loosing contact. it will not trigger a code and the only way to track it is to attatch a fuel pressure gauge to the system and wait for it to die. chances are you will see the pressure drop to 0 psi.

1995 gmc jimmy-won't accelerate wants to stall


could be the fuel pump ...you will need to do a fuel pressure test on it ..the pressure should be 63 anything lower even so much as a few lbs will cause this to happen ...as well if it sat that long i would consider a complete tune up and check all vacuum lines for dry-rot

1996 jimmy air conditioner blows hot air worked fine a couple weeks ago. I used the arctic freeze ultra synthetic refrigerant 134a+ but didnt seem to do any good. Still blows hot air.


Might be the condincer, does the comprsure kick when you turn the air on. if so you might want to take it to a shop and have them flush the lines out. old as it is it should be done, another thing to check would be the temp snsor for the a/c.
