93 gmc jimmy has a lot of smoke out the tail pipe when starting and has set for a while.

this is an indication that the valve seals need to be replaced as oil is leaking past them into the cylinders......cheers

I've got a 1993 GMC Jimmy - the odometer

You should be able to get the speedometer cable at any parts store (napa, carquest, oreilley). It may not be in stock, but they should be able to order it. It should be under $60.

Looking for the fireing order for my 1993 jimmy 4.3 votek moter

Here is the firing order for that vehicle and engine, however, some people can not figure it out (color coding and numbers seem to be too complicated for some) and have given low ratings for this diagram, and I will probably stop giving out this firing order. Let me know if you need help to understand this diagram, or require any further assistance.

93 gmc jimmy wont start turns over and theres spark but it wont fire. fuel pump sounds like its priming

spray ether into intake , if it wants to run then you have a fuel problem. if you can rent a timing light, check the timing, it could have jumped, and it will still have spark. also check the plugs for proper gap.

Car won't fire

if you have checked for spark at the spark plug end of the wire and it was not an sporadic,then you need to check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail reed valve,it should be at least 50psi ti start an engine thru the injectors

1993 jimmy wont start

you are off the timing by a tooth or two. when you replaced the cap and rotor, if you did not mark the position of the rotor with some point on the motor or firewall, then it is likely that you installed the rotor by a couple of degrees. so, when you are going up hill, and the engine needs to advance the timing to add power you timing is off even more causing lack of power and sputtering and backfiring.
