1995 GMC Jimmy starts cold but quits as soon as you let off the ignition. Then won't restart.

Sounds like a fuel pressure problem - the fuel pump may not be working on restart, the fuel regulator may be sticking or leaking, etc. Try checking the pressure at the access fitting in the engine compartment (you will need a fuel gauge assembly).

Gasoline in crankcase

Very bad issue, and could be dangerous. Most likely cause bad fuel injector stuck open. This can ruin engine bearing so drain oil and replace while also fixing leaking injector.

Lots oil streaming on the floor,seems like engine oil, under the bottom.

i would say there may be a seal or gasket gone and i would get it looked at by a garage if you are not mechanically minded... if you want to look further into the problem i suggest jacking it up and looking for where the oil is leaking from. hope this was helpful :)

1995 GMC Jimmy 3.5L HO - lots of engine clatter, very low oil pressure - 10-30 on dash gauge from idle to 3000 rpm, oil full. Oil pump problem or major repair??

if the noise is coming from the oil pan you may have bad rod bearings or main bearings or the oil pick up tube could have also came loose but since you have oil pressure im gonna say your looking at replacing or rebuilding the engine witch is a major repair.

Cant find the oil leak under a 95 jimmy any suggestions

Go to your local high pressure spray wash and clean the engine. After it is dry place paper or cardboard under the car and run the engine. Find the drip spot(s) and look at the bottom of the engine first working up to the top.

Head Gasket water in oil,or valve leak

Sorry to tell you this...
Water in Oil? = Head Gasket Leak OR Blown Engine.
Valve leak will not cause water to be in the oil.

Oil in the rad

If it's brown, you have a blown head gasket and most likely there is coolant in the engine oil pan as well. If the oil is red, it's transmission fluid leaking internally from the cooler...Radiator needs to be replaced and trans oil needs to be changed. You should not drive or run the engine with either condition.

Where do you put in the transmission fluid for a 1995 GMC Jimmy? Is it in the same place as the dipstick?

Yes, you are correct. Start the engine, leave in Park position, check fluid level. If low, use a funnel and insert into the trans oil dipstick tube, add fluid as needed.
Caution: Do Not Overfill.
good luck.

1995 Gmc Jimmy Starting Problem

If the engine is using a carburetor, the top gasket maybe leaking evaporating the fuel in the bowl. Check or replace the solenoid switch on the starter body.
