2001 GMC Jimmy wont start


Try pouring a little gas into the throttle body and starting. If it runs and dies, most likely a bad fuel pump. I already had to put two of them on my 1998 jimmy. Good luck!

All of the sudden my Durango wont start. The starter engages, it just sounds like its not getting any Gas to where it needs to go to get It to fire up. We tried tapping on the starter to see if thAt wOuLD...


Don't tap on the starter-it is engaging. Tap on the bottom of the gas tank-if your fuel pump is failing, sometimes you can get it to work a time or two by banging on the gas tank. If it works, you will need a new fuel pump.

You should hear the pump come on for about 2 seconds, by turning the key to on. It should come on to pressurize the system. If you don't hear it buzz on for a short time with key on, you will need to check out the pump.
Sudden no starts like yours are usually gas or ignition related. Check for gas and check for spark.

2000 gmc jimmy stalled while accererating and will not start


Sounds like the fuel pump failed. Have someone stand by the key while you go to the gas tank and take off the cap. Put your ear to the tank filler tube and have them turn on the key. You should hear a hum for about 2 seconds and then goes quite. If you don't hear anything the fuel pump stopped working. Could be a: fuse, relay, or bad pump. If you hear the sound then go under the hood and find the fuel rail service valve. It will be on the fuel rail, it looks like the air stem that is on your tires. It should have a cap on it remove the cap and press in on the valve it should shoot out gas, If it just trickles or no gas then you could have a plugged filter.

sounds like a bad fuel pump. open the gas cap and listen when you turn the key to the on position, not all the way to engage the starter, you should hear a buzzing for 5 or so secands that is the fuel pump in your gas tank. if you dont hear that buzzing the intank fuel pump is probley not working.

My '97 GMC Jimmy was running fine one day and then wouldn't start the next. The battery is fully charged, the engine turns over when the ignition key is turned, but it just won't catch....


TURN THE KEY SWITCH TO THE ON POSITION ,WITH THE GAS LID DOOR OPEN DO YOU HEAR THE HUMM OR WHINE OF THE FUEL PUMP,YOU MAY HAVE TO GET A 2 PERSON SO THAT YOU CAN PUT YOUR EAR RIGHT UP TO THE FUEL DOOR TO HEAR THE HUM,IF THEIRS NO HUM ITS NOT GOING TO START.THE TANK THEN MUST BE REMOVED AND A NEW 250$ FUEL PUMP WILL NEED TO BE INSTALLED.THE PUMPS ARE ALSO DIFFERENT BETWEEN 2DR AND 4DR. EBAY HAS CHEEP PUMPS 100 OR LESS.

MOST LIKELY THE FUEL PUMP HAS FAILED, WHEN U TURN THE KEY TO RUN POSITION DO U HEAR A HUMMING NOISE FROM THE FUEL TANK? THIS NOISE WILL STOP IN ABOUT 5 SECONDS, U CAN HEAR IT BETTER BY TAKING OFF THE GAS CAP AND LISTENING THERE, IF U HEAR NOTHING THEN THE PUMP WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED.

Daughters jimmy turns over but won't start


listen very close,when the key is turned to run you should be able to hear the fuel pump run for 3 seconds or so ,also every time you "bump" the starter the pump should run for 3 seconds again..
Fuel gauge is wired with the pump power. May be easier if someone listens at the fuel inlet with the gas cap off.(takes 2 people)

1999 Cadillac Deville- Won't start!


First, obviously, put gas back in the tank.

Check the fuel pump fuse, (20 amp yellow fuse in the lower left corner of the group). If that is not blown, turn the key on and pound hard on the bottom of the fuel tank. The fuel lubricates the fuel pump, once it runs dry, the pump can lock up. Once the pump is immersed in fuel again, a sharp jolt will unstick it and let it pump up to pressure again. If it locks up for too long, the pump will burn out and need replaced.

We found this out by accident, got mad and pounded on the bottom of the tank and the pump jumped to life.

I would check the fuel lines themselves and make sure there is no blockage. If not you might want to check your fuel injectors and see if they need to be replaced. also make sure you didnt install fuel filter backwards.
