Question about 1996 GMC Jimmy
It could be its a little hard to say with out looking at it. Are you getting any engine codes MIL light on service engine soon light if so you clould have the codes read an auto parts store will do this at no charge. But if not then i would check the plug wires and the dist cap for ripeds or damaged connectors burns in the wires and the cap for cracks or exseive ware on the contacts or striker on the rotor. The wires should be replaced every 5or 6 years and the plugs and cap and rotor every 40,000 or so If you start the engine when its dark some times you can see a bad wire sparking and jumping to ground move the wires around with a peice of wood or plastic to see if they jump. I have the same year truck but its a blazer but there the same thing but i don't realy have enough inforamtion to tell you this will solve all of your problems but i do have the factory manuals for it so try this and see and if you need more information i can help i know how problematic these vehicle can be i had to rebuild mine compeletly
