Solving Cold Start Problems 1999 GMC Jimmy -EricTheCarGuy
A friend of mine brought me this 1999 GMC Jimmy stating that they were
having trouble starting the truck when it got cold outside. Of course the
day they brought it to me it wasn't cold. Because of that, I had to look
for possible causes of the problem. In this video I cover the basics of
what I check in a situation like this. I did find something, be sure to
watch the video to see what I found. Here's some useful links for you.

here were the symptoms:
Truck would start rough and require throttle to even out when warm. Would
usually cold start fine. This lasted for about 6 months, then it got to
where it would be so flooded it would run like shit and not even out. fuel
pressure regulator was dumping fuel out of itself and into the upper
intake; whenever the fuel pump turned off. I demonstrated this in the video
with the plenum off and the injectors plugged in.

If your have a pre-2003 4.3L I highly recommend you replace your poppets
with the new multi port spider. Just about the best upgrade you could do.
Changed the plugs and wires as well and now get 19mpg (up from 16 with the

Chev / GMC Misfire, poppet injector diagnosis, troubleshooting and replacement
http://www.wellsve.com/ This video demonstrates how to diagnose a sticky
poppet injector utilizing scan tool and 5 gas techniques. The upper and
lower intake are removed and replaced. The distributor cam sensor retard is
re-synced using a scan tool. The re-sync also needs to be performed at
times when a P0340 trouble code sets.

Change a Fuel Pressure Regulator
This is a how to video on how to change a fuel pressure regulator on a 96
LT1 Corvette. This is a similar process for almost all cars. This will be
identical to all LT1s and LT4s.
This will take 30min max and you will need:
-small flat head screw driver
-5/16 ratchet or wrench (for battery terminal)
-various sized star torx wrenches
-spray the torx bolts with "liquid wrench" or some other nut remover to
make it easier to remove the bolts.
-start by disconnecting the negative battery terminal.
-relieve fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge or carefully push a screw
driver in the fuel pressure valve.
- Unscrew and remove the torx bolt that holds the fuel lines down. (the
fuel line that goes to the FPR should be loose now)
-Unscrew the torx bolt that holds down the fuel pressure regulator (it
screws into the fuel rail).
-Have a plastic container under the FPR so that excess fuel can fall into
it and not on your engine.
-Remove the fuel pressure regulator from the fuel rail
-Unclip the fuel line from the FPR and now it should be completely removed
-Add motor oil to the o-rings that are on the FPR
-Attach the new FPR to the fuel rail first
-Attach the FPR to the fuel line and reset the clip
- Screw down the fuel line torx bolt
-make sure you let the area air out so there are no fumes then attach the
negative battery terminal
-start the engine and check for leaks
