There are several possible directions you can go or that could cause the problem. The worst case scenario being a busted Timing belt or Crank shaft. Check the pressure on the fuel rail or fuel lines with the ignition on. You should hear the fuel pump running and you should have pressure on the Fuel Rails if you have an infected motor or pressure on the fuel lines if it is carburated. If you don't hear the fuel pump energize check your fuses. You also want to check the relays under the hood. If all the fuses and relays are good consider replacing the fuel pump. Check to make sure the timing belt/chain hasn't broken. You can do this by doing a few compression checks. If you have zero compression on any cylinder no matter what you do then the valves are stuck open and this is indicating the timing belt/ chain has broken. I would actually start by checking to hear the fuel pump, sounds like a high pitched whine from the gas tank area with ignition on. then do the compression check. If you have a carburetor on the vehicle you can try pouring a little fuel directly in the opening like you are trying to prime it and see if it will start to check the operation of the
he Fuel pump as well.

The engines run very lean for fuel efficiency. Although a "cold start sequence" gives the impression of freezing temperatures, the operating range is much higher. The water temperature sensor (some have 2) may be staying too warm for the reset. You may need to change the sensor. Then the fuel mix will be richer and the engine will start.

has the alternator output been checked? Running voltage should be about 14.2 volts at idle-you can go to a autozone, advance auto, pep boys, napa, kragens, they all will check your alternator while running.

sounds like either you have a fuel pump going out or you have a fuel line that is leaking and causing air to get in the line causing the fuel system to lose it's prime.

Replace the fuel filter first. When you turn the key on, the fuel pump should run for a few moments, then turn off. If it keeps running, then replace the pump as well. Suggest having the fuel system pressure checked at the engine itself. Hope this helps!

200 GMC Jimmy was hesitating while driving and then completely stopped running. would not restart.


if it is still cranking but not firing the first thing to check is fuel delivery. get a can of starting fluid from parts store and open the air cleaner box. spray fluid into half leading to the motor while someone tries to start the engine. if it fires you may have a bad fuel pump. good luck

I presume you mean 'grinds when I turn the ignition..(to start)'.
If this is so, it's most likely the starter motor 'drive (overun) clutch is faulty.

Either replace the starter motor complete or replace the drive clutch assy on the original.
The latter should be cheaper (especially if you can source a new 'drive clutch' and fit it yourself).

2000 GMC Jimmy will not start


First of all, check your air filter. Then your engine ground connection. Then all the connections in your ignition system. If none of that gets it, try you could have a faulty idle contol system. Change sensor. Then coil pack if you still don't have it figured. Good luck. I hope this helps.
