I don't know how long you let it sit or what climate you are located in so.... From what you said I would guess you have had water condensation in the tank. I would change the fuel filter, fill the tank with fresh fuel and add a container of "water remover" to the tank. If water is the problem this will allow the water to be mixed with the fuel in a very small percentage and burn it along with the fuel. Full or almost full tanks do not condense water. Empty or almost empty tanks do when allowed to sit for a while.

2003 GMC Seirra Duramax Deisel won't start


If it cranks and won't start then it is probably your glow plug system which is used to help with starting as diesel engines have no plugs and rely on compression. It also helps to run a lighter oil in the winter so it will crank faster. You can ohm out the plugs to see if they are broken. I am not sure of the wiring on the GMC but usually diesels have several wired in parallel

1996 GMC 1500 truck, Vortec 6 cylinder. Will not start after being turned off for a few hours. Engine turns but won't catch. When I spray some starter fluid in the air filter line to the carb, it will...


I would lean towards the fuel pump, but... How dirty was the old filter??? if it was bad then the new one may have picked up whatever was left in the line. I guess I would go the easy route, replace the fuel filter, this time with the filter off crank the truck and catch the fuel in a mason jar til it is clean, you may need to drain the tank and try to clean it out if it is real dirty. Hope this helped Tim

I have a 99 gmc seirra , we have replaced the starter, crank sensor, new battery, clean oil, and filter. The truck will turn over but will not fire. There seems to be no spark, there is gas at the fuel...


You need to hook a fuel pressure gauge to it. It has to have 55 psi or it won't run. Have you checked for spark at one of the plug wires. I'm guessing low fuel pressure, fuel pump.

1996 gmc sierra, have changed fuel pump and fuel filter. can smell plenty of gas coming out of exhaust pipe. tested for spark, have spark.. truck will crank but not start. what can i try or check now?


Check the timing and make sure the battery is good, the battery can sometime have the power to crank the engine but have internal problems that leave it without enough voltage to give you a hot enough spark to start the engine.
You could also have some bad ignition parts which could be shorting out your spark or sending it to the wrong spark plugs. Plus you could also have fouled spark plugs.

I just replaced the battery in my 2000 gmc seirra. The truck cranks right up and will run fine for a minute or two. Then my battery acks like it is going to die, but if I shift it into park everything goes...


Did you make she that the battery has the right cold cranking amps, or the alternator? some times on an alternator the selfegnighter might have gone bad. Also sounds like there might be a wiring or fuel injection problem. Is there a check engine light on? Start simple, put some sea foam in the gas tank (you can get sea foam at auto zone for 10.00) that might cure the rough idle.

97 Gmc suburban 1500, engine tries to turn over but will not start. Usually happens after not being driven for a day, And, there is a gas odor coming from the engine area.


Anytime you have an odor of RAW GASOLINE, it is wise to discontinue the running of the engine till it located and corrected. Neglecting this fact could lead to an UNHEALTHY situation. Hoping you're getting my message. The reason it develops the problem after sitting a day is because the fuel that is SUPPOSED to be waiting in the fuel rail for the engine to start , has now leaked out and is not there FOR THE ENGINE TO RUN, so it cranks, NO START. Hope this helps.
