    I have a 2002 and had the same problem would start after 3 days of setting. It happened 4-5 times and the dealer couldn't find it. I sprayed canned air into the ignition switch followed by a small amt of wd 40. no problem since. The ignition key makes contact with the security system and if it's dirty the car won't start.

Why does my 2003 Yukon XL turn over but won't start?

Does fuel pump run ? Remove fuel cap. Have someone crank it for you,you should hear fuel pump running. If not bang on bottom of tank while cranking. If it starts fuel pump will need replacing , if not check for power to pump, if it has power,replace pump. If no power, check relay for operation

Turns over acts like it string to start just doesn't

Try pushing the automatic fuel shut off button located on the left side of the steering wheel or in the glove compartment If that doesnt work then you should make sure the fuel pump is pumping fuel by listening for it to power on when you turn your ignition key

Car starts but will not stay running

Sounds like your fuel pressure regulator. Check vacuum connection at fuel pressure regulator. That's the only easy check. the rest may have to be trial and error, i.e replacing fuel pressure regulator and then fuel pump if that doesn't work.

2000 GMC Yukon Denali will start And then shutoff immediately. Why?

My guess would be something electrical that is not working due to the temp. Like a relay.
A relay could loose magnetic power for a few tries then start working.
Or the engine temp sensor could be out of calib and telling the computer the temp is 90 degrees when it is only 50.
You could use a scanner to read the sensors and look for something not right.
Without knowing what is missing in the equation its going to be tough to diagnose it. You really need to know if you are loosing voltage to the coil or the injectors or if the fuel mixture is too lean, etc.

2003 gmc yukon acts like its not getting fuel. I have replaced the fuel filter but still have the same problem. If you spray starter fluid in it, it will start up and run, sometimes rough and sometimes...

A fuel filter won't fix anything

Just like replacing a blown fuse does nothing

You need to diagnose the problem first

It may act any number of ways to you

Have you confirmed fuel pressure on a gauge
or looking at scan tool software?

Does the pump come on when it doesn't start
& what does the gauge say when you cycle the key?

Do you have a check light on dash or stored codes
you can only see on professional scan tool?

Do you even know how long the spark plugs are
in the motor or looked at fuel trim,or module voltage,
or O2 sensor data?

Right now it sounds as though you have no knowledge about
vehicles & haven't actually done anything

What does work & how do you know that

You have to test the entire truck,then work on the faults
you find

2001 gmc yukon gets no fuel while driving and shuts down

Check your fuel pressure it should be 50-55 psi.Sounds like the fuel pump is to weak.

2000 ford explore, wont start. if I prime it, it starts right up and stays running fine. shut it off and it wont start again.

I'd go through, and first check the fuses that go back to the fuel pump, and make sure it is making contact before you have to go chasing ghosts. If that doesn't work, then you might try checking your fuel pressure: prime it, run the engine for a few minutes, then kill it: watch to see if the pressure drops off pretty quick after the fuel pump is off. I'm betting on a ground at the fuel pump, though: the simple act of the vibrating running engine usually provides a decent connection.
