Hi Frank:

First off, I'd make sure the battery is fully charged.
Next make sure the terminals and battery connections are clean and secure.
- Electric fuel punp? When you turn on the ignition switch, can you hear the pump?
We'll need a bit more info to get farther. What is the history of the vehicle? Does it turn over when you try to start it?

I found a 98 jimmy for $1600 its got 175,000 miles tho any kind of on going problems with a 98 with this kind of mileage? cuz i got burned with a 98 blazer, had problems with everything from transfer case...

Its the same thing except it says GMC on the front. The most common issues with either of them is ABS problems, wheel bearings, ball joints, intake gaskets, plugged heater cores, injector issues, fuel pressure regulators, fuel pumps, catalytic converters, wiper motors, window motors, 4x4 issues, and the list goes on.

K1998 gmc jimmy 4 wheel drive truck cranks but getting fire,when it did run it smelled like gas strong

GMC Jimmy's have a record of corroded fuel lines at the fuel pump in the fuel tank. Cycle your key from "Off" to "Run" a couple times then look under the vehicle in the fuel tank area to see if there is gas dripping.

I have a 98 jimmy 4.3liter v-6. I have changed

Suspect the crankshaft/camshaft sensor may be bad which controls timing of both spark and injector firing. The check engine light should be on--rent a scanner, read any codes and pursue to repairs. Hope you installed the new distributor exactly as the old one.

98 gmc jimmy smokes real bad and burns lots of gas

The smoke is probably a black smoke from burning excessive fuel. That fuel injection system has seperate plastic runners going to each cylinder inside the intake manifold, I think it was nick-named the spider, they go bad and need to be replaced. Problem could also be the fuel pressure regulator, I think it's also under the intake manifold. The bottom line is that you have to remove the intake and look for your problem.
