1994 GMC Sonoma 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.

The Fuel Pump May Fail Causing the Engine to Stall or Crank Over But Not Start

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.

Driveability Problems Due to Internal Distributor Fault

The distributor may develop internal faults. This can cause a rough running engine or stalling condition and the Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate. The distributor should be overhauled or replaced to correct this concern.

1994 GMC Sonoma Reviews

Rated
based on 1 customer reviews
My 4wd Sonoma has been an excelent truck. The engine has a bit of a rough idle (from new) but runs strong and gets OK gas mileage. Front brakes wear out on the early side and now I have developed a noise in the front end, maybe worn control arm bushings. The only major repair has been a fuel pump replacement at 70k.
