1994 GMC Jimmy Problems

ABS Light Due to Brake System Control Unit Failure

The Anti-lock brake system (ABS) control unit may fail internally causing the ABS warning light to illuminate.

Replace Fuel Filter Every 30,000 to Prevent Fuel Pump Failure

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

Engine Running Rich Due to Fuel Leak Inside Intake Manifold

Vehicles using the enhanced vortec V6 engine may be hard to start run poorly and/or use to much fuel due to a fuel leak inside the intake manifold plenum. Commonly this is caused by a leaking fuel pressure regulator or fuel line. The fuel system will need to be pressurized with the upper intake manifold removed in order to determine the exact cause of the leak. Removing the "tuning valve" from the upper intake can allow for limited visual inspection without removing the upper intake manifold.

1994 GMC Jimmy Reviews

Bought my 94 GMC Jimmy about a year ago for $1k with 167***miles, I put i little work into it and have never had anyproblems with it.
I got my '94 with 175k miles on it and enjoyed it for the first... few months. I have put a lot of money into engine and transmission repairs. Also the interior console is loose and the drivers arm rest ripped off from everyday use. Great drive, when it's all put together.
overall not bad if you stay on top of repairs
