You'll have to gently apply some prying pressure to the housing as you turn the screws, it sounds like they've stripped the part they go in...

SOURCE: set timing 1997 jimmy

Ok that's pretty simple Put cylinder # 1 on TDC= top dead center on the (compressionstroke piston all the way up). Mark on metal part of distributor (with marker) where the number one is on the cap( that's where the number 1 wire plugs in) Then in-plant distributor make sure that rotor point is pointed to #1 on the cap, turn distributor shaft until this is achieved or as close as possible try to center shaft so you can adjust... ****** or advance to fine tune after you in-plant distributor if needed. Contact if you need more help . Good Luck

SOURCE: how to replace driver side mirror on 1999 GMC

if there is a plastic cover directly behind the mirror on the inside of the car it should come off by gently prying it with a flat blade or screwdriver around the edge of it as most are held on by plastic clips.
Once it is removed it will expose the nuts or bolts that hold the mirror to the door but dont forget to remove the electric wire plug that leads to the mirror

Can I use a 97 GMC Jimmy brake booster to replace a 98 GMC Jimmy brake booster? I'm buying a vehicle and need this part but found a 97 way cheaper than the 98 and they look the same! TIA


I don't if that differs between manufacturers? I looked at rockauto.com for your brake booster, cardone part for your vehicle lists 97--2005 for your vehicle, brake booster.
If all the hook-ups are the same as the one your looking at, I don't know why it wouldn't work?
You know how it is, I see nothing from here.

How do I remove a power booster from a 97 GMC Jimmy


Un bolt master cylinder and pull forward and to side without disconnecting any lines. Get up under dash and disconnect linkage to front of booster pushrod (This can be tricky and hard on the neck and headbone). Remove vacuum check valve from booster, remove 4 nuts holding booster in place and remove unit. Installation is reverse steps.

There should be two or four mounting bolts accessed from under the dash. Usually the booster has studs and you remove the nuts.

1997 gmc jimmy, have no brakes, when truck is running pedal goes right to the floor. when the truck is off I can pump the brakes to build up pressure. there are no brake fluid leaks is it the booster or...


SOUND LIKE BRAKE BOOSTER BAD IF BRAKES WONT HOLD WHILE ENGINE RUNNING.BRAKE BOOSTER NOT HOLDING VACUUM,IT HAS A LEAKING DIAPHRAM. IF MASTERCYLINDER WAS BAD BRAKES WILL GO TO THE FLOOR WITH ENGINE ON OR OFF.AND YOU WOULD SEE WARNING BRAKE LIGHT FLASHING.

Cant get brakes back on my 1992 gmc jimmy I cant get them to line up and go on the rotor


More than likely you have not fully compressed the caliper piston into the caliper. Take the old inner brake pad and clip it on back onto the piston. With a large clamp (one side on the back of the caliper behind the piston and the other on the face of the old brake pad) and compress the piton slowly by tightening the clamp. It needs to bottom out completely. Remove the clamp and old brake pad and install the new pads. Make sure that when you install the caliper to the rotor that the brake pads stay locked in position and it will slide over the rotors and fit snug.

95 GMC Jimmy brakes are tight


The hard brake pedal is most likely a faulty power brake booster. Unless you suspect a faulty master cylinder, buy one with out it. In fact, if you suspect any other problems which might require opening the brake system (the booster does not) take it to a mechanic for repair. 

The brake booster will require removal of four bolts on the fire wall (from the inside of the truck) and the removal of the master cylinder (do not remove the brake lines, simply unbolt it from its mooring). You will also have to muck about with the connecter for the pedal rod. If you feel at all unsure about doing that job, have a mechanic do it.

Good luck and hope this helps.
