1994 GMC Jimmy Problems
The heater core under the right side of the dashboard may leak engine coolant which can puddle on the passenger front floor. The loss of coolant may cause an engine overheating condition. Our technicians tell us that removal of the dash board is necessary to replace the heater on these vehicles.
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.
The transmission output shaft seal may leak transmission fluid. On 2WD models, this leak can cause the transmission mount to become oil soaked, which will require replacement of the mount along with the leak repair. On 4WD models, if this seal leaks, the fluid will leak into the transfer case, causing it to become overfull.
Our technicians highly recommend that the transmission is serviced every 30,000 miles to avoid problems and maintain optimal operating order.

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
