Question about 1999 GMC Jimmy

2 Answers

Rough Idling and slow accelaration

I have a 99 Jimmy that idles very roughly when starting out and won't accelerate until the engine has had about 30 seconds of running. Even then the engine still stutters when climbing hills and absolutely no acceleration when trying to pass someone. I have replace spark plugs, wires, and fuel filter. Any suggestions as to what to try next??

Have you the intake off? if so check for trash in the fuel ejectors. I had the same problem, I just replace the fuel meter body with one from the junk yard

Acceleration won't go past 3000 PRM at idle


The car does have a maf, but it is rarely the cause of rough idle. Rough idle is usually caused by vacuum leak, pvc issues, or idle air control valve. What does it do, specifically, and is the engine light on?

'99 Accord: P0420 and Sometimes Engine Hesitation & Rough Idling


First thing I would do is clean the throttle body if nothing changes check your mass air sensor if still nothing. change (or clean) your oxygen sensors can normally be found on the exhaust manifolds. also it couldn't hurt to give it an oil change and use a fuel additive to get rid off all the nasty build up in the engine I use BG 44K

That's all the information I have good luck!
