I have a 1999 GMC jimmy 4 door 4x4 v6 4.3 ltr automatic with a starting problem, it starts with starting fluid and runs great afterwards can drive all over God's creation afterwards, but day a


Sounds like you are loosing fuel pressure overnight. Since it takes 70+ psi to start and run, if you have zero pressure in the morning, it would take a long time of cranking to get the pressure back up.
If it is low or no pressure, the problem could be a faulty check valve in the fuel pump.

My 1997 gmc 1500 suburban will not run but it pulls no dtc codes on the cpu


My 97 Suburban had a similar problem. Would not crank on a regular basis. Replaced spark plug wires, plugs and rotor cap. Vehicle cranked and ran just fine, plugs were in poor shape. Checked fuel pressure, above 55psi with engine running or just the switch turned on. Immediately after switching engine off the pressure would bleed off to "0" PSI. Otherwise everything OK. Problem solved, so I thought. A couple days latter I had to make a road trip from Mobile, Al to Fort Meyers, Fl when cranking problem re-occurred after approx. 100 miles into trip. I stopped at parts houses on the way to ask questions and to obtain their best ideas, at times it would take 30 minutes before engine would again crank after making a stop. I replaced almost all of the sensors. Finally made it to Fort Meyers that night. Next morning vehicle was dead would not crank no matter what I tried. Fuel pressure OK. Only thing left to replace, Fuel Injector spider system. Problem solved.

Ran out of diesel on a 96 vw transporter van, what do I do, I've put deisel in the tank now what?


Need to change the fuel filter first, you may pulled some debris from the fuel tank. After replacing the filter you must prime the system to get it to start. Have a strong battery as you may have to crank a while to get the air out of the system. You can get the air out bt loosening a couple of the injector lines at the injector, crank engine untill fuel comes from the lines, continue to crank engine till it starts to run, will run rought untill you tighten the lines and let it run for a few seconds,. sounds more complicayed than it really is. Let me know if this helped

I have a 2000 GMC 3500. it will start but then it dies immediately


Have you checked your fuel filter? If it needs replacement, it will restrict the flow of fuel thereby perhaps creating the symptoms you have described. This needs replacement regularly or it's remotely possible that you could damage your fuel pump which is located in the fuel tank. Fuel pump replacement is very expensive should it be needed (over $650.00 +) Note: As I understand it, the fuel pump is cooled by gas in your tank so it is important to keep at least 1/8 tank of gas in your tank at all times while running the vehicle to be certain you are not overheating the pump and shortening its service life. Anyone capable of crawling under the van can easily replace the fuel filter on most of the GMC Savanna/ Chevy Express models in about 5-10 minutes with just a ratchet/socket combo or wrench (to remove the bracket bolt that holds the filter in place) and a needle nose pliers (needed to squeeze the quick connect tabs that connect the lines to the filter). The correct filter will cost about $16 - $25 at a Walmart store. They are much more expensive at the dealer or parts supplier ($35- $55)!
