Asked by Oct 04, 2013 at 09:37 AM about the 1992 GMC Sonoma 2 Dr SLE Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Dears,

Please i need your kind support in my GMC Sonoma 92 2.5L, the starter works but the
engine

does not start, and after some try it starts but the engine goes down a few minutes
later.

The battery indicator gives a green light and the tank is full of fuel, the fuel reaches to
the engine

in good pressure and the distributor wire gives a spark.

I replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, MAP Sensor, IAC Valve and Ignition Control Unit.
Can you help me with it Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaasse?

Thanks.

When it does start, can you rev it slightly or will it just die? Have you tried dropping the exhaust before the converter it might be plugged.
