Question about 2001 GMC Safari
drive a GMC Safari, the other day, I went out to start it, the engine turned,
but the car wouldn't start, came back the next morning, the car started with no
The car worked fine for a day. The day after, suddenly it didn't start & when it did start it backfired, if I let it stand for a while, it will start with no problems, I just don't get it, what can the problem be?
HAD SIMILAR PROBLEM. DID NOT START.AFTER TURNING IT OVER TWENTY TIMES IT STARTED AND RAN GREAT. AFTER LEAVING IT SIT FOR A FEW HOURS HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. AFTER CHANGING WIRES, PLUGS, DISTRIBUTER CAP, ROTTER,COIL,AND A FEW OTHER THINGS.STILL HAD THE PROBLEM. FINALLY I CHANGED THE $15.00 fuel filter and it runs perfect.

I think it's the fuel pump or the fuel pump filter.
Check the fuel system that's where your problem is, my bet is your fuel pump has left this world to a better place.
