Question about 1995 GMC Jimmy
I have a 1995 GMC Jimmy 4x4, 4.3 Vortex V6. It doesn't start without squirting gas into the manifold. Once it starts, it runs like a top, but every time you have to squirt the fuel into the intake manifold. The fuel filter has been changed and the fuel pressure was checked is okay. Anybody know what could be causing this? Thanks

It sounds like a faulty fuel pressure regulator. When you turn the key to the on position the fuel pump starts for an instant to build pressure in the fuel line. If the pressure regulator has allowed too much leakage since the last start then the fuel pump does not have enough time to prime the line. The fuel pressure will still measure ok when the car is running because the leakage is very low. Try turning the key off and on a few times prior to starting and see if the extra pump priming steps help. Also check the vacuum line to the regulator because it needs vacuum to work correctly.
