98 jimmy starts... but then dies and will not start back up untill later,changed fuel filter


Have you checked your fuel pressure. You may have a bad fuel pump. If you have good fuel pressure take a good look at your cap and rotor. 4.3 liters have a notorious cap and rotor problem along with a coil wire issue. The coil wire can rub on the firewall or other places and cause you problems. I would start with checking your fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge.

98 gmc jimm 4x4 4.3l v6 replaced plugs, wires and distributor cap and rotor. Still getting P0304 code and rough idle. Higher rpms flatten out roughness but take off feels off. Any help??


spray carb/choke cleaner all around intake gasket mating surface on heads. (while motor is running) If rpms change you have a bad intake gasket.

96 GMC Jimmy starts okay but dies after about 10 minutes. It will start again after sitting for awhile, then dies again. Have changed the fuel filter and pump...any other ideas?


If you have replaced the fuel pump and filter I would still check the pump pressure when it wants to die. Check for any trouble codes in the system also.

My jimmy just died at a drive thru we have changed the ignition module then the crank shaft censor then the computer still not working the engine will turn over but not catch..what do i do now????


what gave you the reason to change all the things you have replaced. and just remember just because you replaced something doesnt mean that the part may not be defective... check for fuel, fuel pressure, spark, compression first. then i can help you.
