I have a 98 GMC Jimmy 4Door. It has good fire, good fuel but will not start.

Asked by Aug 23, 2014 at 02:11 PM about the 1998 GMC Jimmy 4 Dr SL 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It cranks but will not turn over. We replaced the spider fuel regulator parts, rotor & distributor caps, new spark plugs. All mechanics say it should start, but wont. Help me PLEASE!!! I really need this car fixed badly.

Change the spark plugs. They may be gasoline fouled. While you're doing that, run a compression test. If all cylinders test low, it's jumped timing. HTH. -Jim
