I'm installing new bearings need spec.

Truck stalled while driving... Got it towed home changed 1 coil pack due to orange/red spark. Changed crankshaft sencor get good spark ,gas and compression but still won't run even if I put gas in throttle body....even checked timing

I recently changed head gaskets, intake gaskets, and distributor. I set the #1 piston at TDC and set the rotor/dist to point at the 6 on the dis housing and when i start it, it idles perfect soon at you go to give it gas instantly starts popping in the throttle body, Not so much of a backfire more of a pop. Any clue what it could be?

I've checked fuses and replaced the headlight switch. Any other suggestions as to what to do?

This is a used truck, I got in Dec. and had brake and rotors pads replaced 4 times, since then. Brake lines and boaster also have been replaced once. My freind said there is a little box that goes from the Brake line to the ABS, could this be the problem, if it is, do you know the name of this box, so that I can purchase it. If you think it is something else, please advise

My sonoma starts fine when the weather is good but when it rains it wount start tell the sun heats it up and drys off the moister any one know what's going on

Truck starts and runs fine during evening hours. But as soon as it starts heating up outside it will die sporadically then you wait ten minutes then it fires back up to only die again in less than 1/2 mile sometimes. Could this be caused by a failing fuel pump, and just a note. I just bought this truck used and was made aware of this problem but I have yet to put a full tank of gas in it yet, and currently there's only about an 1/8 of a tank cuz I thought I may have to pull this fuel pump n I don't want to waste a lot of money on gas. so during the hot days there is a large space in the tank for hot air to accumulate causing the pump to malfunction, then while sitting for ten minutes it gives the air time to cool a lil bit then when I drive again the air heats up and I'm back to stalling. Well at least that's my theory. What y'all think

Its a v6 push button 4x4 1999 gmc sonoma 2 door. It only changes while driving especially after going up steep heels.when i let off gas then i hear the winding sound and have to push 4 high than 2wd button

Between 20 - 35 mph it always hops no matter which gear it is in. Full acceleration and freeway speeds it runs smoothly.

new plugs,wires,coils,crank sensor,fuel lights in dash no battery voltage at coil pack no spark at plugs.when it quit it was just like shuting the key off

My truck is a 98 GMC Sonoma and last night I was turning into a parking lot when the knock started, its been getting progressively worse and now just 15 miles later its horrible. I was curious if i could get someone who had the same problem describe their symptoms? Maybe then I can narrow it down to the timing gears with out digging into it. Thanks so much.

Growels real loud going down road Grease is fine Mech says some wear but not terrible

Engine light also comes on. Replaced plugs.

What good is a car alarm if the thieves can turn it off? I had a window broken recently and the theives made off with a few minor things but I couldn't understand why I heard no alarm? Then I realized al they would have to do is unlock the door, open the door lock it again and then shut the door. Voila! alarm stops. They rumaged through the glove box that I can't lock because there is no lock on it. So many features that are suppose to bring "peace of mind" but fail bady.

The fuel filter has been checked , and it is getting fuel

Hi my 1997 GMC sonoma has been giving me problems. I was driving one day and then the engine shut off completley. The battery however was working fine and all lights were turning on. I got it towed home and used some Carb spray and it started so I assumed it was the fuel pump however the next day I decided to test it to see if it turned on and it did. I was able to drive it a few miles and it worked fine. Later that day the same thing happened it wouldn't start. I wanted to know what might be wrong with my truck and how I can get it fixed. Thank you for taking the time to read this about my problem I am having.
