Question about 1999 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

I was replacing the fuel pump on a 1999 GMC Jimmy 4.3 engine 4 wheel drive when I broke what I thought was some sort of ventilation fitting on the opposite end of the tank fom the fuel pump. I repaired it by tapping my own fitting in the hole and hooked it back to the existing hose. The vehicle starts and runs fine but i'm getting horrible mileage and wonder if I created a problem. I can't find any information on the part except that a Haynes repair Manual says it's part of the EVAP system and their information is pretty vague. Thanks for any help. R. Brown

The original fitting had a check valve in it to prevent vapor from constantly venting into the charcoal Evaporative loss system. You should be able to buy another fitting or install an inline check valve to solve the problem. I don't know if it will affect your mileage.

you might have to replace the fuel pump as the small plastic gears need fuel to lubricate them and with out fuel they tend to mess up bad.

Only one question.....was the fuel filter replaced? On a jimmy the filter is usually mounted to the rail up under the passenger door on the drivers side. Sounds like there is some sort of obstruction that is preventing fuel from making it from the fuel tank to the engine. I would have thought that the mechanic would have replaced the fuel filter first thing, so maybe it has already been done. Only you and the mechanic know the answer to that one. Good luck with your problem.

1999 GMC Jimmy bogs out when driving


have the mass air unit cleaned by someone who knows how, very cheap an if no codes are stored this could be it ,3 very tiny wires in mass air monitor the amount of air flowing into engine, if they get insulated with dirt they give false signal to computer which governs amount of fuel more air more fuel less air less fuel thus a bog results
