Question about 1996 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

Problems with 96 jimmy missing out especially when the trans needs to shift. I replaced spark plugs, wires, rotor button, dist cap, oil and filter, fuel filter, idle position sensor. Starts and idles fine, only misses out then the trans needs to shift. Only codes show a Misfire.

This then could be a malfunction of the Computer system, have it checked out by someone that understands more then just reading a code shown on the meter....

I have replaced plugs and wires, and dist cap and rotor look ok, but I didn`t replace them. My 96 jeep GC will sputter and backfire at stops, idling low. Should I replace fuel filter, dist cap, rotor and...


This is because of the improper combustion, so you check the air filter, if the air filter is not good enough then the idling will go down and then the back firing will occur, in the same time check the Electronic ignition system for proper ignition cycle.

engine missing could be caused by faulty spark plugs and wires,bad ignition coils,dirty fuel injectors,leaking egr valve,low cylinder compression,intake vacuum leaks.many things will cause engine to miss, first do minor fix,replace distributor cap and rotor,replace spark plugs and wires,clean fuel injectors,replace fuel filter and air filter,if this minor tune up dont help engine and engine still missing, do a vacuum test and compression test to check condition of engine.engine could be worn out have low compression by worn valves and pistons rings.

96 jimmy replaced the dist. cap now wont start no spark at the coil???


Double check to make sure your rotor is cliped into the right place. It should have a slot it slides into. Also check to make sure the cap was not put on crooked and bend a tab or broke the rotor or broke the steel tab off the rotor. Also check to make sure that you did not accidently unhook any wires to the distributor.

I have a 2000 chevy s 10 with 152,000 miles on it what does a tune up consist of


I would change the spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor, fuel filter, check and change air filter if dirty, check timing, check and top off all fluids, check or change transmission fluid, check brake pads/.shoes and drums/rotors for wear and check tire pressure, check the condition of all belts and hoses and replace as needed, check condition of radiator antifreeze and top off or replace as needed.

My car went from 30 miles a galllon to 20 miles a gallon it seems over nite


most likely suspect is the carb

However, I'd start with your basic tune-up first...
  • replace spark plugs
  • replace spark plug wires
  • replace Dist cap and rotor
  • replace fuel filter
  • replace air filter
  • change oil
  • adjust timing and base idle speed
  • adjust fuel mixture (if available)
Cheers

Replace the spark plugs and wires along with a distributor cap and rotor. Be careful to leave the old wires and plug wires connected to dist.cap, just remove dist. cap from the distributor and lay aside with plug wires on it then install rotor then new cap and proceed to replace each wire for cap and spark plug one at a time so you don't mix up the spark plug wire firing order. Cap laying to the side is used for reference purpose.

4l60e trans. will not shift out of 3rdgear...


Have it scanned. Have the person who scans it pay particular attention to the Transmission temp sensor. If the Transmission temp sensor tells the ecm the transmission is cold, it won't shift to 4th. Also if it thinks the transmission is too hot it won't allow a 3-4 shift.
