Question about 2006 GMC Typhoon

93 GMC Typhoon acting up

Well, here it goes. I own a 93 typhoon, and recently it started acting up. IT was like it was missing really bad. I changed plugs, wires, cap & rotor. Didnt change. While crusin 55mph its fine may miss even once in awhile. but when i give it some gas and the boost starts to increase, it gets shakey. boost jumps around. for a short sec it will straightin out and start pullin hard but then back to the crappy running. Also get smell of fuel in the cab. never notice that before. and also get some kinda burnt smell i guess not sure on that one. My thought might be a bad injector but not sure. Any help would be great as im not big on letting others work on my truck. thanks

When you changed the plugs, I hope you used a copper plug. I found the AC Delco was the best for mine. The platnum plugs are very bad for turbo engine's. They heat up a glow like glow plugs and promote knocking, then your really going to have problems. Good luck.

I removed the distributer of my 93 typhoon to have it rebuilt.how do I reset the timing?


You just need to make sure you put your distributor back in correctly. The timing should not have to be reset.

My 93 gmc acts like it wants to down shift when it doesnt need to and it started shifting hard


Start checking the fluid level and the color and make sure its not burnt.and this problem continues to appear then drain your old fluid and put in a new one and also try to put in a new filter. Because any problem with a filter or fluid would really affect your transmission Shifting and performance. Good luck

Have a 20cm crack in rear bumper crack is clean, no missing plastic/fiberglass or crushing.the car is a ford performance vehicle (fpv) f6 typhoon 2006( turbo 6),think they maybe australian/n.z....


Take the bumper off and use a fibre glass repair kit to repair it.

Or a hot glue gun and some strips of metal will do the trick

Then buy a color match polish and give it some elbow grease
