Question about 1995 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

My 95 jimmy sputters when taking off.

I checked the plugs and they are dry but good gap. My gas gauge moves when im driving. It sounds like it has a bad exaust leak but I cant see any carbon. I just dont know why it sputers or sometimes has rough idle.

This sounds like an ignition problem. Check the ignition coil. Low spark voltage can cause this. As well, the amplifier module in the HEI distributer could be at fault.

Cranks won't start

First you must check to see if engine is mechanical sound by performing a compression test. remove the spark plugs install a compression gauge in the spark plug hole and crank engine about 4 cycles compare readings to all cylinders reading should be around 125-150 psi readings in the 50 psi range possible jumped or broken timing belt. If engine is mechanically sound test for spark at the spark plugs use a spark plug laid against valve cover and have some one crank it over look for the spark to jump the gap. A no spark problem is internal in the distributor.

Me thinks it needs a tune-up. You can do it yourself. This guy is old enough. But hubby is the expert. Will sent your problem to him. A tune-up equals shake out the air-filter - knock it against the curb. Then check the plugs, and their gaps. If it has those. Back in the day, we used to be able to work on our own cars. Driving a 95 Odyssey with a Real Carb, and real tranny. Ergo, this might help. - JW

If the check engine light is not on, I would check fuel pressure with a gauge. And if you have not replaced the fuel filter this year, that would be a good idea too.

When I'm on the highway driving, why does it

It sounds like you are experiencing a short in the secondary ignition system. lots of things to consider; a spark plug is worn or gapped improperly, a plug wire is grounding, corrosion at plug wire ends, corrosion or break in the distributor cap, defective coil, etc.

Washed car...lift hood to wash started, then sputtered and cut off. It looked like it was out of gas, so I put gas in it. Now it starts, but is skipping and sputtering and will not go...water...

Yeah, you sound like you have water down in the plug/wires. You will need to dry out the wires from the plugs to the coil pack. You can buy a solution spray to dry these out faster than air dry. But it will have to be dried before it runs good.

Car is sputtering at high rpms and have a new turn up on it

Check the gap between the prong and contact of the spark plugs. Your local parts store can look up the gap measurement and should have a gap tool you can buy for really cheap, sounds like that may be the issue.
