Question about 1999 GMC Jimmy
Im having a serious issue with my recently purchased Gmc Jimmy.It won't start unless I put starter fluid inside the throttle-plate,then the engine will catch on. Now,even if I put the fluid,truck wont start anymore.Acts like if its running out of fuel because the engine shakes violently then dies. I dont think its the fuel pump(who knows?) because HOW was I able to drive 50 miles from Sacramento to Stockton?it ran smooth. Now this problem came up. Had the Fuel Pump removed and there is a wire inside the container that is sorta burnt. Fuel gauge always marks full even if its not.....and the guy I bought it from says it could be the fuel pump or the relay switch.PLEASE HELP!!
Check the plugs.
when you put starting fluid into the car you burnt them.
check'em all, clean them out.
and i will recommend to change the fuel filter.
see how it does and if problem persist then it is your pump, it's not death but is dying.
