Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy

2 Answers

My 2000 jimmy stopped running today while i was driving down the interstate. when i tried to restart the car it acted like it was out of gas even though i just filled it up, the engine cranks but wouldnt start. so i had it towed home. when i got home to my car i tried again to start it and it started but is idleing very rough like it is missing. i have two thoughts on the cause but not sure. was thinking it could be some sort of sensor or the fuel pump...

Most likely its a weak fuel pump prbably the ride home on the tow truck jarred the pump to make it work

Stalls, then engine shuts down...


One thing it could be is the fuel filter. It's about the only thing that won't cause an engine light to come on.

The most common reason for this is the front seal of the compressor leaks, The leak is hard to track down as it is often gas and no oil or residue.

What would case my 99 gmc jimmy to bog down and run rough when giving it gas


If you have replaced the fuel filter this year, the next thing to check is fuel pressure with a gauge. GM vortec engines require 60psi or more to run.
If the check engine light is on you should also have the computer scanned for trouble codes.

2000 dodge durango acts like it's out of gas


Could be just the fuel filter. A common symptom of a failed filter is for it quit at higher speeds, then start again after a rest period. A partially-clogged filter is still under pressure when just stopped and bleeds through some fuel with time so it'll start again. If this happens, you may be able to limp home slowly and change that filter. BE CAREFUL if you've never done this before, the fuel is under high pressure, it can spray all over you. And if you've ever run the tank very low or completely out and kept cranking on it, you can burn up the fuel pump because it wants to be immersed in gas to keep it cool.... Good luck.

I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy that has around 93,000 miles on it. The last oil change was 2 weeks ago. Today, on a trip on the interstate, I pulled off to have dinner. When I left the restaurant and started...


If the trucks engine rev'd up when you first put the gas pedal down, but didn't go anywhere then it was probably in neutral (not drive as you thought). If it was in drive and still didn't go anywhere but engine still rev'd up then its a transmission issue or PRNDL switch at the side of the tranny. I can't see anything relating to the gas pedal by NOT reving up the engine when it was pressed down. I wouldn't suspect a throttle cable issue. Check the tranny fluid while truck is running in park, see if the fluid is badly burnt or low on the dipstick. If it looks good I would have the PRNDL switch checked. (Park Reverse Neutral Drive and Low) switch.

98 gmc jimmy loses power to a stop


the fuel pump could actually be malfunctioning. and the reason that you are able to restart and drive again is because when you turn the key on it is allowing the fuel pump to pressureize your system. but while the fuel pump is continuasly running it is loosing the fuel pressure. this is common on the cheap fuel pumps. i am not sure about were you got the fuel pump from but in all of my experiances with this problem i find that the fuel pumps have been boughten at a napa store.
i hope this helps you out.
and you could attach a fuel pressure gauge on to the fuel rail and start the car and watch the pressure to see if it is droping.

Car stopped on interestate, dieseled and quit.


I had the same problem on my way to Washington state from Iowa. I never checked to see if my throttle valve was dry, but I had it taken to a shop and it was the mass air flow sensor which is a metal cylinder connected to a tube between the air box and the engine. One thing you can try is disconnect the wires that go to it and see if it starts. This is just an idea that may help you.
