Check to see if the cam shaft is turning as there may be a broken timing belt/chain

SOURCE: 1989 GMC Sierra truck doors loose

Hey there.You can purchase a door pin and bushing repair kit to tighten up the hinge area,requires removing the door to replace.If the hinge area is worn to badly,the brass bushings willnot last.Also your window crank handle is held on by a C-clip behind the handle in between the plastic shim and the handle which requires a special tool to remove or a small screwdriver to get the clip off.It is hard to see.The shaft that the handle is on are known to wear also and if thats the case you will need to have the window regulator replaced.Hope this helps.John.

SOURCE: My GMC sierra starts and dies in 1 second but

GM's are known for possessing faulty antitheft systems. When these systems being to fail, the antitheft misinterprets the failure as an attempt to steal the vehicle. The system then shuts off the injectors. The system resets after 10 minutes exactly. As the fault gets worse, this will happen more often. Next time this happens, note any lights that illuminate on the dash area. If you see one that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT, this is most likely the problem. This link will help you.

89 GMC 5.7L. P/U When driving after a few miles the truck dies. Let it cool down and it starts back up till it warms up then it dies again.Sometimes i go 2 miles or 20 miles just depends.


Check the primary and secondary resistance of your coil. Also check spark plug wire resistance. The coil will short out when it heats up if it is going bad.
