Question about GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

4 months ago, out of nowhere, my 2001 gmc jimmy stalled. it seemed to run when my foot was not on the gas and bog out until it stalled when I stepped on the gas. It would turn over but not start. After about 10 minutes, it started and I haven't had the problem again, however it does turn over longer than usual before it starts since then. Today the same thing happenned.Bogged out, stalled, turned over wouldn't start til battery died. Put it on battery charger, sputtered the 1st time started the 2nd.I shut it off, took off the battery charger, tried to start it an hour later, it just turned over, wouldn't start til battery died again.

I would say it may be the distributor, I would start there first. You may want to try a tune up first to see if it helps and I would definitely get my battery checked out since winter is approaching and it has been run down a few times. hope this helps tim
