There is a pressure regulating hose that is attached to the top of the filler tube, if this hose has collapsed or is blocked the pressure in the tank builds up and you get a back splash when filling. Check this hose. You may have to take the filler tube and hose loose in order to get to it. If it's not collapsed or blocked but looks old and dry rotted, replace it.

Those hoses are located in the same area as the tank filler. There is a set of hoses that go from the gas cap connection to the tank. You have to lower the tank.

A malfunctioning antitheft system can turn off injectors causing just such a problem. Look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. If this light is present, go to this link for help.

In morning dont start on the first but on the second it does 01 gmc jimmy

The most likely cause of this is that the fuel pump pressure check valve is defective and allowing the fuel to bleed back to the fuel tank, then the system must purge before the engine starts, this usually takes a couple of cranking tries. The check valve is built into the fuel pump outlet port, so the pump must be replaced to correct this. to confirm this problem have a shop run run a fuel pressure bleed down test or buy a gage and do it yourself, the test port is on the top of the engine, it looks like a large tire fill valve

How to replace the fuel pump in a 2001 GMC Jimmy

I think they are the same on 1992-2001 On a 1993 the fuel pump in the gas tank. you will have to siphon gas out of the tank (as much as you can) before working on it. Disconnect the tank filling hose. Unbolt the tank, and drop that it down. There is a damper on the pump that may also be defective (dead) which would cause a hard start because of the lack of pressure in the line. Optional: Recommendation, as i have replaced many of these fuel pumps now. Cut a hole in the deck while the tank is out. This way, you can simply reach through the deck and pull it out of the tank if it happens again. Make sure You machine screw a sheet metal plate over the hole and replace the carpet.

2001 jimmy gas tank problems ,go to fill with gas will not let gas go into the tank

Sounds like the gas tank vent is blocked, not allowing the air to escape as you fill. You should see two tubes going into the tank, one to fill, the other is the vent. Check it to make sure it's not blocked.

The only other thing, is if there is a mesh filter in the fill tube, and if it's blocked, it won't fill.
