How is the crank sensor? Does it have a new fuel filter? Those two are common for no starts. Also loose or dirty negative battery cable connections and a loose ignition wire on the starter.

    Well, the crank sensor may be a culprit but the others must be ok or it wouldn't start by popping the clutch with it moving just slightly. Also, where is the crank sensor and all the other sensors that may affect this problem in this truck. I don't have a manual.

    Cranks sensor is in bottom front of block. By crank shaft. Then there is camshaft position sensor up by head.

Check the ground wires. There are many. Main 3 are from the battery to engine, battery to body and engine to body.

Wont start with key


Do you have a bad starter? also check for loose or dirty battery cables on both ends of cables as the starter does take a lot of pull and a dirty or loose cable won't give it the power to start but will let the lights work.

1998 2500 chevy wont start unless i pour fuel in throtle body when engine is cold


Check your fuel pump pressure, it is probably down in the 50 lb range and it requires a bit above that to start. Once it starts it will run on that pressure. This is a chronic problem with these, my 1998 2500 was a GMC but it's the same vehicle. I put 385,000 miles on it with no engine or transmission trouble but I was on fuel pump number six when I sold it.

I have a w reg, diesil transit van and the engine seems to have started to cut out once it has warmed up, after about 4 or 5 miles,it was driving ok, then all of a sudden it lost power and a few mins later...


Find the cold start switch on the engine. This unit will put more fuel into the engine and set the idle a bit higher for cold starts till warm up then go beck to normal. It appears there is a malfunction in this switch. Replace it, or you can do what I did and put a toggle switch on the power in side of this switch so that you can shut it off after it's a bit warmed up and will stay running. That's all I can imagine would cause your problem on diesel engine.

I own a 1992 gmc jimmy and I was wondering if the clutch sensor has anything to do with starting. Sometimes when I start it, it takes a few times before it starts. Am not pushing the clutch far enough down...


Yes, there is a clutch switch which must be activated (closes switch) for the starter to engage. This is a safety item so the truck won't start in gear. With time it may begin to fail, this should be any easy fix. And yes from time to time you may not be pushing the clutch in far enough to actuate this switch.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

Could be a sensor.I'm thinking more along the lines of a fuel pump or fuel filter.If the fuel pump is going bad..similar symptoms.Would be advisable to install a pressure gauge at the engine,and check fuel pressure when it's acting up.
