1997 GMC Sonoma Problems

Brakes -- Verified

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

Engine -- Verified

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.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

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.

Drive Train -- Verified

Our technicians highly recommend that the transmission is serviced every 30,000 miles to avoid problems and maintain optimal operating order.

1997 GMC Sonoma Reviews

I have a 97 gmc sonoma and it stalls out at times while driving. the mechanic can't find the reason for it happening. He thought it was the module so he changed it but it stalled out again. I suggested that it might be the fuel filter but he said that was not possible. Any suggestions?

one of the reasons why a fuel pump goes bad is lack of changeing the filter and the pump has to work harder to push the fuel through the system
