97 gmc Sonoma 2.2L starting issues.

Asked by Bridgman Apr 07, 2020 at 04:07 PM about the 1997 GMC Sonoma 2 Dr SL Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi I have my Sonoma and I can get it started but
only if I have the gas pedal maxed out and then it
slowly starts, and as soon as it sounds like its
cleaning up I let off the gas and it dies, also gas is
coming out of the I take and the exhaust when I
start it, has new fuel pump and filter.

Either a bad fuel regulator or you have badly leaking injectors. Check the regulator first as it is the most common failure
