My 1997 jimmy is slow to pull out but then runs fine after it gets going


First check the fuel pressure it should be 55-61 psi with the key on and engine off.If its not within these specs then replace the fuel pump and filter.Because it sounds like you have a weak pump.

New starter,new alternator,new fuel filter,turns over wont start a little gas in carburator step on gas let off gas turn key starts then runs


check the fuel pump, it sounds like as it sits its losing pressure, when you first turn the key to the on ( not start) do you hear the fuel pump running then shut off? your fuel pump should keep pressure on the line at all times, so if you do hear the pump start it should be a very brief spurt and thats it, you can have the pressure checked at many repair shops for free or low charge,

Replace the fuel filter first. When you turn the key on, the fuel pump should run for a few moments, then turn off. If it keeps running, then replace the pump as well. Suggest having the fuel system pressure checked at the engine itself. Hope this helps!

97 gmc jimmy loseing fuel power


The first thing I would recommend is that you change your fuel filter and recheck your fuel pressure once you do that. If is persists I would check your fuel pressure regulator as well. A fuel pressure regulator for a 1997 GMC K2500 ran about $45.00 and a fuel filter runs about $7-10.00. That's a lot cheaper to go that route first than to have to spend $350.00 for a new (Lifetime Warrenty) fuel pump that comes with a new sock and sending unit.

When was the last time the fuel filter was chg. If you can't remember its time for a new one.If it does not help after you chg. filter, best to fuel pressure test, to see if pump is going bad.

Stalls when gas peddle is released


Try replacing your fuel filter. It should cost you less then $10, and it will be very easy to change. They should be replaced once a year anyway. If you have not done so, that may be your problem. After that, check the fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge,$40. Low pressure may indicate a faulty fuel pump.
