I have a 1998 jimmy that is hard to start and the other day I stooped to
get gas and could not start it. It took me two hours to get the jimmy to
start. I don't think it is a fule problem, the pump is running and I got
flue past the filter. I pored fule in to the trotlebody and it would
start for a minute. Anyone have a clue.
Fuel pump pressure/flow is low. That fact that it ran when you poured
fuel in intake confirms that there is a fuel issue. FUel pumps isse
are common of those vehicles at times especailly if you are one to run
fuel low a lot.
I know about the pump issue, I have replaced the pump already. After I
get the truck starter I do not have any problem with it all day with the
exception of the other knight when it took me two hours to get it
started again. Do you know what the pressure should be?
The flue pump was the problem.
One other question, there is a vent hose on the front of the tank and it
looks to be leaking around the vent. My tank is plastic, can this be
fixed or do I have to get a new tank.
