My engine light in my 2002 GMC Sonoma has been on for the past four weeks. Yesterday I had an oil change done on my truck with a local mechanic. He turned the engine light off, but it came on soon after leaving his shop.
This morning I went to start my truck and there was NO power whatsoever. After repeatedly turning the key, I soon saw a slight movement on the battery display, but no lights would come on. It just seemed like it wasn't getting any power. I changed the battery two years ago, so it should be fine.
Eventually, the truck received full power and started, more less out of no where. It wouldn't hold an idle and would just die if i took my foot off the gas.
Hopefully someone has a solution for me.
Thanks.

How to change an oil pump on 2002 gmc sonoma 2.2


In most cases no. But you have to loosen the engine enough to raise it up enough to get clearance to remove the oil pan.

check your battery posts and terminals are clean, if is ok, you can check the wiring the charing circuit, maybe the guy installing the stereo broke a corroded wire off.

2002 gmc extended cab sonoma fuel pump replacement


Drop fuel tank, use brass drift and rubber hammer to unscrew retainer ring on top of tank. (Don't use anything that can cause a spark) Very carefully pull fuel pump and fuel level sensor out of tank.

Separate pump from unit and replace with the new pump. Wouldn't hurt to replace filter sock or filter if this model has one.

Carefully slip unit back into tank, replace seal and locking ring, ensuring it is tight.

If hoses and wires are long enough I check for proper operation before raising the tank all the way in place.

Once satisfied pump and fuel gage is working, replace tank in frame.

Smell of the oil,to see if the fuel injector(spider)is leaking into the crank case,if so,the intake will have to be removed to repair the problem,oh,and change the oil.

POOR GAS MILEAGE


Have you changed the fuel filter? I know it sounds weird but a plugged filter will make a truck use more gas. The computer tries to compensate for less fuel by commanding the injectors to open longer. Also a plugged filter will cause excess back pressure on the fuel pump making it loud.. Good Luck.
