2000 GMC Jimmy Problems

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

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 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.

2000 GMC Jimmy Reviews

I have 2000 GMC SLE Jimmy which I bought new. It's been nothing but a nightmare since I've owned it. I've changed the water pump 3 times. A defective radiator seal caused fluid to leak in the oil compartment which cost over $1000 to repair.

I currently have 70,400 miles on vehicle and it is running fine except for a whinning from alternator which dealer can't find cause.Today I noticed a smell of rubber burning which seems to be coming from rear wheel.
