Question about 1997 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

1997 GMC Jimmy Would Not Start Last Night but did this morng.

My Jimmy acted like it was not getting fuel. As a matter of fact it was not. Took a taxi home got a fuel can and poured fuel down the throttle. The car fired and run until fuel was gone.
Left the car there over night, called a wrecker and while waiting for wrecker I thought I'd try to start and the damn thing started.

Any ideas as to what I need to have the repair shop replace?

Vehicle has 124,000 miles on it.

Fuel pump, fuel relay, fuel regualator, fuel injectors, camshaft positioning sensor, fuel filter, etc. Need special tools to diagnose properly, do you have them? Doubtfull, I don't have all of them and I've spent thousands on my tools. I can do a guessing game with you but I prefeer not to lead you astray.

96 jimmy shuts off while running and will turn back on, changed control module and the throttle body and MAF sensor. told by dealer to change this and problem would be fixed, problem not fixed.


i have had problems with the fuel pump relays heating up and loosing contact. it will not trigger a code and the only way to track it is to attatch a fuel pressure gauge to the system and wait for it to die. chances are you will see the pressure drop to 0 psi.

1997 , wont crank


if starter will engage and engine can turn over quickly it should start.

however.. i dont know how you are verifying it has fuel as its a high-pressure FI system.

these systems by GM are VERY finicky and unless within spec precisely it will NOT run. i suspect fuel pump is putting out less than 57# which is min for these.

fuel pump known failure part. if replaced you MUST also replace wire harness at tank as they usually fail internally w/melted wires you cant see through wire sheath. low voltage will KILL the new pump.

also you didnt note engine size and family...
