1999 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.
Vehicles equipped whit a 4 speed automatic transmission may develop a harsh 1-2 shift and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P1870 stored. This can be caused by wear of the bore for the TCC isolator and regulator valves in the valve body. This condition does not commonly occur until the transmission reaches normal operating temperature. If the valve body is worn, replacement will be necessary to correct this concern.
Our technicians highly recommend that the transmission is serviced every 30,000 miles to avoid problems and maintain optimal operating order.

is there a relay or a switch I may be able to locate that would cause my brakelight on one side to quit working? my turn and flasher signal still work, they use the same element as the brakelight.
I own a Jimmy and it is always slipping into overdrive (revs up to 3 on gage ) then it quits and drives normal- it does this alot , what is the issue - is it a speed or overdrive sensor - also gas...
Your estimate for my 99 Jimmy Heater Core Replacement of up to $270 is so grossly incorrect it isn't even funny. I have called 3 places for quotes and the LOWEST quote is $1100!
1999 GMC Jimmy Reviews
got my jimmy in march had some problems with 4 x4 replaced the 4x4 computer moduel located inside by passange door had no problems mine also tends to rock had to replace front end n shocks other than that ita a good buy
I have a 99 GMC Jimmy and it has been great. I carry a ton of sports gear in the back at all times. It tends to rock rather bad when I am driving on the interstate, but that is probably just the suspension from all the gear. The only big problem I have had is the 4x4 electrical buttons are all on and my 4x4 no longer works which is a bummer and my Jimmy acts like it wants to switch into 4x4 sometimes but other than that its a great SUV
Have owned for six years, although I hear people talk about all the problems they have had I have not had any problems. Fun to drive. Wish they still made them, would love another.
