Hi Chris. Yes we did, the negative battery cable was bad. The problem wasn't visible and the cable had corroded internally. The connection at the battery looked fine, the connection to the vehicles frame looked fine. It actually took 4 times to the shop before the problem was actually found. The problem was the corrosion was such a way that the cable would work for a while, then it wouldn't. So ... Read More

Not to be rude, But General Motors has had its issues, But alot of the farms i've been to or worked on all have GM work trucks with over 400k on them, I rarely hear of fords with more then 250 before they completely run dry. I personally own a 96 Jimmy and it has 325 000 on it. The only problem is the fuel pump (I was not told by ... Read More

Hi Sorry about the caps. Thanks for the reply I will let you know how it turns out thanks
No caps, please! To answer your question, this sounds like a classic fuel regulator failure where the regulator is leaking, adding additional fuel into the engine. The additional fuel causes the backfire/hard start, followed by rough idle. Once the excess fuel is burned off, the engine will run normally as it can deal with the small amount of leakage coming in. This repair can be performed by a skilled doityourselfer, otherwise ... Read More

I have a 99, it is located on the right side of the throttle body. May have to take off throttle body cover to see it. If you are sure you need to replace it, go buy one then look for the part on throttle body.
My brother was driving his Jimmy the other night when without warning he lost all electrical. He didn't even have a slighty flicker of power once it died.

Sounds like your "Cold Start circuit" isn't telling the computer that the car is now warm? Two things I can think of at little to no extra costs... 1)Replace Temp. sensor/sender to the computer...NOT the sender to the guage. Inexpensive part to replace. Shop around...NAPA, Advance, etc., for best price. 2)Idle Control Valve (ICV). Clean it...may be sticking or STUCK in the "cold" position?? I hate throwing parts at a car ... Read More
We have an 01 jimmy and have very similar problems, been dealing with this for awhile. replaced fuel pump, fuel filters, flushed fuel lines, pickup coil, inginaiton mod, altinator, was overcharging. engine light comes on sometimes no codes fuel gauge jumps around runs good when cool or cold out. gets hot out it act up. stops when driving and when you park it wont start wait 15 min starts up again ... Read More
FWIW... One thing I replaced once was the temp. sender to the COMPUTER.... NOT the sender to the temp. gauge/light. It was inexpensive ($10-$12? @ Autozone). Once the truck was up to temperature..the Computer temp. sensor/sender was telling the computer to not let the truck re-start. That solved my problem when the truck would not restart after getting up to temp.
They ended up replacing the central port fuel injectors, now the car runs like a top! Perfect! It is the second time I have had to have that replaced, so I am worried if it will go out again.

I cant pass the emission test because of code p0410 how can i fix this problem.
My 2001 GMC Jimmy SLE has cruise control and I thought there was a light on the instrument panel that lit up when cruise control was on. There is one on my 2004 Sierra. But, either the light is burned out, or there isn't one. I can't find it in the owner's manual. Does anyone know if there is supposed to be a light?
what would be causing my rpm's to go up & down while my 2001 gmc jimmy is just idiling? there's no problem while i'm moving- just when i'm idiling. it's got a 4.3 v-6 vortec engine in it.

Both levers broke off in my 99 Jimmy. The remaining stub on the driver's side split in two pieces so the aftermarket handle won't work. Has anyone replaced the reclining mechanism? I see there are plastic clips connecting the upholstery to a bar. How do you remove the lumbar support knob? Any help would be appreciated.
I just bought a 2001 gmc jimmy. Has 100,000 miles. Bought it thinking the clunk was the ball joints or a loose/worn out shock. NOPE!!!! Replaced the ball joints with "Moog" brand.

I have a 2001 GMC Jimmy that has been in the shop 4 times in the last month. When the 4wd is changed to 2wd and back to 4wd, the abs light comes on.

I have now had my Jimmy at 3 places & one was a GMC dealer. The dealer said my fuel pump was bad that I just replaced.

Is it possible that the fuel pressure regulator is bad??? ... Read More
Wow! A light at the end of the tunnel. I'll check all these out. Thanks for the suggestions.
If the dash was ever out (heater core replaced) that would be a reason. Have the alternator and battery tested free at most auto stores. Then there is a recall on the flasher/hazard switch in the column so call the dealer with your VIN and ask them to check. GM has had some problems on the ignition module (actually the connector and wiring) in the column and often relates to when ... Read More
Most times truck will start fine and will run but random things seem to make the car turn off on some occasions or restart.

Look for water dropping - #1 cause on 4.3 is the lower intake sprays a fine mist into the valley and the lifters make noise. You will normally NOT see any water in the oil when this occurs only the res dropping and morning lifter noise. Then if thats stable you got the engine so hot that you cooked some oil on or in a lifer or two so go buy ... Read More
WELL WE CHANGED THE OIL AND THE FILTER- BUT THE LIFTER NOISE IS STILL THERE! WHAT DO I CHECK FOR NEXT?
Oil and filter and hope the lower intake gasket isn't leaking into the valley.

after replacing the thermostat because of it overheating now there's a noisy lifter- could this be caused from the engine getting too hot? it also due for an oil change.

When I had that issue it was my fuel injector. Thankfully it was still under warranty and the dealer replaced it. I guess the fuel injector stopped working. My brother has a 2001 GMC Truck and now is experiencing the same problem.
I have a 2001 GMC Jimmy that has simply stopped running 3 times recently while driving. It will restat after a minute or so and may go for 10 or 20 miles before it does it again. It has been at a dealer for 3 days and they can not find the problem, and it did not cut out for them. Any help would be appreciated. Frustrated in Virginia.
Yes, both of my seats in my 99 Jimmy have missing handles because of the same issue.
I purchased a 2001 GMC Jimmy in 2004. I have a bumper to bumper warranty, but yet the heater core issues and the sludge returns. Does anyone the true part that needs to be replaced? The dealership tells me it's a different part each time I take it in. I'm needing flushes more often than every six months and they replaced the radiator in June. What should I do next?
At the dealer. Held in by 2 torx bolts and about 2 feet up theres a connector on the frame that unclips but has a plastic pin holding it to the frame so pop it out. Comes with the new hub also if thats needed.
It looks replaceable, but where Can I buy one. I think I pulled wire too hard while doing some axle work.
If the heater core gurggles it needs to be flushed and you can do that by buying a 3' length of 5/8 and 3/4 heater hose, cover distributer with plastic, and remove the 2 hoses at firewall and flush with a garden hose both ways till runs freely. Hang the ends over the fender and simply hold the garden hose to the heater hose while on with your hand wrapped around ... Read More

I own a 2001 gmc jimmy diamond edition,I have a problem with the hvac switch,it usually stuck in the vent position and very rarely does it go to any other position.I have read a recall that a vacum switch is leaking oil and it is getting into the hvac switch.Where would I find this vacum switch.
I've had that happen to both my 1999 and 2002 Blazers. Its a common problem, due to the soft alluminum shaft they use. I just went to a junkyard, and yanked a new assembly.. Cost me $15
Yes it can and its got a torx bolt holding it in and then a few brackets on the wire up to a simple connector on the frame about 1.5' long from the sensor. Unless the wire is cut doubt thats it - remove and turn the wheel/hub and look in and see if the cogs are broken in the hub.
Does anyone know if the front wheel ABS sensor can be replaced independently (not with entire hub assembly) ? And if it can be done easily ? thanks,

In response to #694, I have a 2000 Jimmy that lost reverse and the even numbered gears. The repair guy told me some shield inside the transmission breaks rather easily.

When he does repairs, if the shield is not broken, he automatically replaces it because it will break soon enough. Sounds like they didn't ... Read More
