Question about GMC Yukon XL

1 Answer

On a 2005 GMC Yukon that will not start on first try but will start very well on second attempt. We took it into the shop and they say it is a bad fuel pump. They said the fuel pressure was to low.If they are correct do they sell a replacement fuel pump to be able to install in the unit without replacing the complete unit? Is their maybe some other reason the yukon won't start on first attempt. Yet it does very well after it starts. Please Advise

The answer to the first question is No there is nor replacement except replacing the whole unit to be correct. You could buy an after market pump and rig a hose from the tank to the pump but that is not advisedn due to a possible fuel leak or worse. The other reason for low fuel pressure is the filter, I would change out the filter and then do a pressure test if your concerned, but fuel pumps usually last 4-6 years and they are a common replacement. I agree it is rediculous what it cost to rplace these from a shop. You can do it your self but you have to drop the tank to get to the fuel pump assembly, this is a 2 man job if doing this in your driveway.

2003 gmc yukon xl

Sorry to get your hopes up but I have a similar problem with my 2005 Yukon Denali. How long does the truck stay running before it shuts down? Mine started out with short spurts of the truck shutting down while driving. It slowly progressed to the point where it will only run for about 45 seconds. Originally the truck would sputter the gauges would die and then the truck would die. It slowly progressed to the point where it only runs for 45 seconds and there is no signs before hand. Does any of this happen to your vehicle? I have checked all of my cables and the main ground wires. Along with changing a few of the relays. Nothing has helped. My problem started with an electrical component heating up and quitting. Now it doesn't matter how hot it is in only runs for a couple seconds.

2005 yukon don'tswitch to fourwheeldrive it has electronic system

Do not attempt to switch into 4WD while moving. Slow down to less than 2mph before switching. If it is equipped with Auto 4WD, try switching to that first, then to 4 High (again while going < 2mph). If this still doesn't work, have your transfer case fluid checked.

Cannot find the low pressure ac service port on my 2005 yukon xl.

usually near the accumulator. If you don't know what you are doing, don't attempt to charge the a/c system, you may cause more damage than otherwise. A/C repairs cost more to fix after the car owner has attempted repairs.

How to troubleshoot the electrical air conditioning system 2000 GMC Yukon Denali. I put in new resistor, relay and dealer blower motor and it still doesn't do anything. Air conditioning control switch...

The compressor on the air conditioner in my 2000 GMC Yukon XL went out last summer. Had it and the whole line replaced at a local air conditioning shop last fall. Used it little before cold weather. Warm weather this spring and no cold air. We could hear the compressor trying to kick in. The shop told us that the control console was bad and had to be replaced. They told us the part was on back order and did not know if they would be abel to get one any time soon. We took the Yukon into the local GM dealership. They told us that the high side fitting was bad and that the freon was very low and that they would have to deal with that first to check the system. Called back to the air conditioning shop and they said they had a console come in and they would put it in and check the high side fitting. I now have cold air and questions. Bought Yukon in 2005 used, had always had problem of not switching to cold air once the heater has been used. We were told changing the console should fix that. It has not changed. I feel like the console angle was a scam, that the system was just low on freon. Each shop was blaming the other for trying to scam me. And what can fix the heat to cold issue? If anyone has answers I would sure appreciate the knowledge.

1995 gmc yukon 5.7 bogging /misfire under acceleration ANY HELP WILL BE GREATFULL

Mine did the same at around 90,000 miles. I had the computer changed and it kept doing it. I took it back and asked to repair shop owner to take a look. He did so and said that the computer was bad. I do not know if the first mechanic charged me and did not change it out or we got a defective part the second time. That was the opinion of the owner.
