I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy and for some reason, the other day it just shut off while I was driving, as if I ran out of gas. I have a new Fuel Pump and I know it is working. I havent "tested" the fuel pressure but I HAVE checked it and I know Im getting enough to run.
Also, it starts right up when I pour gas into the carb, but just long enough to burn it and then stauls.
Since I am getting good pressure, I was thinking maybe the fuel injectors but some one told me that wasnt likely.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

2000 Jimmy makes clicking noise but won't start. Was working fine wednesday but started this on friday. Haven't gotten to start since. Could it be the starter?

Sounds like a dead battery, but if your battery is dying its a fair bet your alternator is the reason for that. Maybe something is shorting out or drawing power which maybe draining your battery. Charge the battery or take it to the auto parts store and they should do it for free.

Have you checked your cap and rotor some models still have them. It maybe a relay what else is it doing and what have you checked?

I had a problem with my 2001 gmc Jimmy starting after sitting for awhile. After months of trying to get this issue resolved I read on here and from a mechanic that there is a fuel filter on the driver's side by the wheel that sometimes gets clogged. I had it replaced. And truck has been starting ft one since. Cost 12 for filter and 15 to have put on.
