Crank but not starting 2000 GMC Jimmy

Asked by: 22 views Engine Question

I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy. Last night the engine ligh started to blink. I turned off the engine for the night. Went out this morning to start the truck and it cranked normal but it was not kicking over then all of a sudden there was a loud clunk sound and the truck seemed to like jump and the cranking stopped. Each time I try to start the truck this happens and the truck wont start?

    Hello

    Check the trouble codes.
    The large chunk could come from that the ignition is of and it fire backwards. Many possibilites, and hard to tell without a video. But checking the trouble codes is always the easiest

    If you check them you can post the trouble code number here 🙂
