Question about 2001 GMC Jimmy
My 2001 GMC Jimmy is doing this. Not all the time. Only after it has been running for longer then 20 minutes.
The first thing I started to notice was that I would be driving and trying to accelerate and it would seem like it wasn't getting gas and the RPM's would actually fall. I would floor it, and it would pick up and go.
Now what is happening is it is runing fine on short distances. Once I've been going for 20 minutes or so when I slow to a stop it's idleing fine, I try to accelerate and it actually kills then. I was flooring it and I heard a noise like either a knock or click.
It usually restarts right back up. It doesn't do it at every stop. Yesterday it did it a bunch of times and I actually couldn't get it to go at a light. After sitting there for 2 minutes or so, It finally would start up.
What could this be? I'm going to take it in, but want to be educated first!
Sounds like you may hae an o2 sensor going bad. are there any check engine lights on?
