Did you happen to replace the calipers?? If so, you may have gotten the calipers installed on the wrong side. The bleeder valves should be pointed up. Another thing for you to check is have an assistant pump up the brake pedal and hold them. While they're being held down, crack open one of the lines on the master cylinder to make sure you have fluid squirting out. If not, your master cylinder is bad.

Should fire be coming out carburator with the air disconected when im trying to start it

Well you don't have a carb, you have a throttle body and injectors.
But the answer is no you should not have any fire there.
Could be some plug wires mixed up, or the intake valves are not closing.
You can check the firing order for the plug wires and run a compression test to check the valves.

The most common reason for this is the front seal of the compressor leaks, The leak is hard to track down as it is often gas and no oil or residue.

Need to know how to change brakes rotors and calibers on 1996 gmc jimmy

Hi Friend:

#1) Break Loose your Lug Nuts,Just A Little don't Take-them off yet.

#2) Jack Front end off the Ground,Support with Good jack stands,Keep Truck in Park and Emergency brake Applied.

#3) Now Take off your Front Wheels-Tires.

#4) Now on the Inside of your brake rotor on each side,there are 2-Caliper mounting bolts. Allen Bolts 3/8" Allen Socket or Allen Wrench.Break the 2-Bolts loose and Remove them.

#5) Now after the Caliper Bolts are removed ,Loosen the Brake Line going to the Calipers using a Flare wrench.You'll need to have a Drain Pan handy to Catch the Brake Fluid.

#6) Now you'll need a C Clamp ,to compress the caliper piston back in the Caliper. NOTE: before you compress the Caliper pistons ,take off the master cylinder cover and using a suction bulb remove about 1/2 of the fluid from the Front Resevoir.the larger of the two.

#7) Now placing the C-Clamp over the Caliper housing turn it clockwise to compress the Piston all the way in.

#8) now you can remove your caliper and the pads,same for Both Sides. AND remove your Rotors they are held on by the Calipers and your Lug-Nuts.It Should come right off ,if its a little rusted and Stubborn take a Plastic Headed Hammer and Tap it all around the Old Rotor.Until it comes off.

#9) Now Slide your new Rotors on the HUB and over the lug nuts.

#10) Get your new caliper Making sure you have the Correct Caliper its Marked Left or Right Sides. It will only work on the Side its made for.

#11) Now put your Anti Rattel Clips on the Correct Sides(Inside) that fit into the New Caiper Piston.also use some brake lube on the back on the new brake pads where they touch the caiper housing.

#12) With both pads in the Caliper Slide the Caliper over your New Rotor. This is for both sides.

#13) Put your brake line back on using the new brass washers that came with your rotors/or Caipers.

#14) Now Put your Caliper Mounting bolts in and tighten up to 38 Foot Lbs.

#15) When you have both sides done Fill up your master Cylinder about a 1/4 " from top.

16) Now you'll need to bleed them ,Get a Friend and have them Slowly push the brake pedal down,after he says its down you open the bleeder valve until fluid and air come out==Now tighten it back before your friend raises his foot up off the pedal.During bleeding keep checking your Master Cylinder to keep it full of fluid.

#17) Start your bleeding from the Right Rear to Left Rear to Right Front and Last Left Front. Always bleed from the farthest brake or Wheel from the Master Cylinder and work your way to the Master.

#18) After you have No air coming out of the bleeder valve and you do have good clean brake fluid.Your Done Bleeding;You should have a Good tight and High Brake Pedal. NOTE: you DON't start the Truck to bleed the brakes.

#19) Now just Put your Tires back on and Tighten your Lug Nuts and you should have good Brakes.

I'm sure that this will get you good brakes and on the Road Again.

Rear disc brake problem

Sounds like the pistons are sticking in the calipers. Also check the brake hoses, I had a collapsed one that was making the caliper not release.

How to get to the front bearrings to grease them on my 2000 gmc jimmy

If it's a 4x4 they can't be greased. The bearing is pressed into the hub.

If it's 4x2 you'll have to remove the caliper. Take off the dust cover on the rotor. Remove the cotter pin, spindle nut, and washer, to pull the rotor off and grease the inner bearing.

If it's 4x4...Loosen the lugs. Remove the axle shaft nut and washer. Jack it up. Pull the wheel. Remove the caliper/bracket. Trace the ABS sensor wire into the inner fender and unplug it. Remove the nuts/clips that hold the wire from moving around. Look on the back of the hub (spindle) for the three bolts that hold the hub and bearing in place. Remove them and pull out the hub and bearing.

The check light is on and after starting the engine, i can see oil on the floor

That's not good.

Check engine light could be due to low oil pressure caused by the loss. If you have some engine oil nearby, top-off your car (to prevent seizing) and then get to a local auto parts store or dealer and get them to run the engine code (auto parts store will do it for free, dealer won't).

The engine code should reveal what is wrong, but it sounds, at the minimum, the crush washer that goes beneath the bolt in the oil drain pan needs to be replaced - some times after an oil change a mechanic might over-tighten that bolt and damage the crush washer too much. The crush washer is design to distort to cause an air-tight seal and prevent leaking. Leaking oil would reduce pressure and, in turn, cause check engine light to come on

I keep losing oil pressure 2000 jimmy

I do not know your model of vehicle. But low oil pressure is usually an oil pump problem. If it is not sorted out soon, you will need another engine.

Please help!!!

You should have a crush washer on each side of the banjo bolt. You may be loosing your pressure to everything else by all the brake fluid leaking. You may have to go through the motions a few times before you see the fluid come out of the rear.
