I have a 2002 Yukon XL 1500. was driving came to a stop and went to accelerate and truck jerked forward and started to stumble. made it about 1/2 a block and died completely. engine starts but stumbles and dies quickly. It has about a 1/4 tank of gas and all fluid levels look good. checked the fuses all appear to not be burnt out. just had the water pump and the power steering gearbox replaced yesterday. tried the banging on the fuel cell idea but didnt help. any ideas?

It sounds like your battery is going bad. When you accelerate the alternator spins faster generating more electricity. Take it to a auto parts store and they can do a free test to confirm what needs to be replaced.

Check the fuel cap!! If the vacuum relief is not working it can impede the fuel flow and cause the engine to shut down or not restart after a stop. Waiting usually gives things a chance to stabalize and the engine will restsrt. When this happens again try loosening the cap and see if the engine will restart.....If it restarts immediately, REPLACE the fuel cap..Do Not leave it loose because this will cause other problems. If it is not the fuel cap the problem may be the filter, the fuel pump, or aome other fuel system malfunction.

the jerking and noise you are experiencing is the drive chain and bearings in the transfer case also you may want to check the end play in both front and rear pinion bearings and yokes

Rear end noise?

This sounds like ring and pinion noise, new bearings and a gear set will cure the problem.
