Question about 1997 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

1997 GMC pick-up. I got up ran an errand this morning. Came home for about 20 minutes and went out to start the truck and it turns over but won't start. I am waiting to see if after an hour it will restart. I must have a reliable way to go to work.

There are many things that can cause this problem - you could throw a lot of parts at it and still not get it right. A hands on diagnostic would be the best bet to save time, money, and aggravation.
I suggest getting it to a local shop right away.
Good luck, and sorry I couldn't offer anything more concrete!

Ran out of gas on a 1997 gmc jimmy and 4 days later it just cut off and than it won,t crank I let it sit for a minute and than it crank but it happen again. What to do?


Cranking and fuel issues are two separate things. Check age of battery and voltage across terminals. Does it always crank as long as you hold the key but not start? If cranking okey,check fuel pressure,key -on,cranking,or if it does start. Check battery cables for corrosion,also inside cables. Do,a voltage drop test on both cables.. Need a meter or just have a shop pick it up and take care of it.

1997 saturn sl did some errands, then wouldn't re-start


If it wouldn't start, you have to see if you are missing fuel or fire. Could be a bad sensor, or a bad fuel pump, or if the security light is blinking, a problem with the security system.
