SOURCE: My 1999 GMC Sierra wont start. It has the 5.3l V8

Sounds like a security problem that is preventing starting. It will run for a few seconds and then die.

SOURCE: how to replace starter 2002 GMC Sierra 2500

Enjoy this...jack up truck, remove tire, remove plastic cowling and expose front right wheel may want to wash this side of engine at this point. Remove battery cables, remove the 13 mm nut and 8mm nuts on the solenoid. take a 15mm socket and remove the upper aand lower holding bolts. Use an extra long extension for the lower bolt. Ratchet out in front of the A-arm. Dislocate the starter from the fly wheel side of starter. wiggle,jiggle and point the starter gear at a 45 down and PULL starter out and down.

Truck wont start till after I spray starting fluid in tbi, then runs fine

check to make sure that your not loosing fuel pressure once your truck dies if there is a leak your fuel system may have to prime itself. Also check and make sure your fuel system is holding the correct fuel pressure while running you could have a fuel pump thats going bad on you.

2002 gmc 1500 sierra starter clicks but wont turn over. Have checked fuses, charged battery, tried jump starting all it does is you can here solinoid click but starter wont turn. I did turn heater fan on...

Replace the starter, the solenoid cant engage the starter because it is locked up, hence the extreme voltage drop with the fan when you try to start it with the fan on.

Check to ensure your glow plugs are functioning properly.

Is the truck blowing a lot of white smoke during idle or initial start up? If so, you most likely have injectors that are not performing correctly, not allowing vehicle to start.

2002 sierra V6. My truck wont start after a few days of being off. Battery is new but it's dies trying to crank it on. This has happened before and it would eventually turn on but it hasn't this time.. Any...

The battery cables are dirty at the battery.
Disconnect each cable and clean the cable clamps and battery posts.
The dirty stuff gets hot when you crank the engine or drive. This increases the electrical resistance and not enough juice to crank starter.

Fluid leak around starter

It may be a rear crank seal, or oil from the torque converter (automatic) or the input seal on the transmission. Check your fluid levels in your engine and trans. A visual inspection will help also. you could remove the inspection panel on the bottom of the trans bell housing. As for the clunk I would be leaning towards more of a starter issue for that.
