My sons 97 sonoma starts sometimes. The shop wants to replace the fuel pump assembly at a cost of 1,000.00. Seems like a high estimate what do you think?


Well the fuel pump for a 4 cylinder is about $270.00. Depending on there labor rate this may be a reasonable estimate but it does sound a little high. The six cylinder pump is around the same price. If you can find someone who knows how to drop the tank then you can eliminate some of your labor cost. So $740.00 for labor thats a rip off.

I have a 1997 gmc sonoma and i need to know if it has a hydrolic clutch and where i would put fluid in. if it is not hydrolic how do i get it adjusted. my clutch is right off the floor not any play at all.


the clutch in 97 sonoma is hydraulic and should not require adjustment. If the clutch is not engaging until it is completely off the floor or close to that point (friction point) then it is indicating excessive clutch disc wear and would require replacement normally. You should not have to add fluid to the clutch circuit unless there were a leak in a line, master cyl (clutch), or slave cylinder, in any case the leak would have to corrected first. the reservoir should be located near the brake reservoir normally a little to the left or the brake master cylinder and reservoir. it would look similar but be much smaller. is the engine rpm rising higher then normal during acceleration indicating possible clutch slippage. i hope this will help you, need any more help just let me know

2000 GMC Sonoma will not start after standing serveral hours


Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve, you should have 62 to 65 PSI when the fuel system is primed. (engine not running) With the engine started and running the pressure should drop by 5 PSI, anything less then 62 PSI in your fuel system when trying to start the engine will cause a no start. Note; that try to start a the engine by pouring gas through the throttle body may cause an internal fire in the intake ports and will cause the fuel injectors to melt creating a more expensive problem. As for the fuel pump in the gas tank, it''s held on by and snap ring which you can remove with a simple screw driver. Good luck and keep me posted, and don't for get to replace the wire harness from the frame to the gas tank. It's a $12.00 investment that's worth more then it's cost.
