Having problems with your 1997 GMC Sonoma ?

1997 GMC Sonoma, will not start.

\015 My truck is a 1997 GMC Sonoma SLS Pickup (RWD) with the 4.3L V6 EFI (Vin code X) extended cab. The only aftermarket part is a K&N air filter (direct OE replacement not a cold air). The vehicle has 106,000 miles on both the engine and chassis. \012\012Recently my Sonoma has had an issue starting after sitting overnight or through out my work day. It would crank over and either not start or stutter and stop, after a few tries it would start up and drove without issue whatsoever. More recently I drove it to work and parked it for a few hours, when I went back to start it up it would crank but would not turn over or start.\012\012I have since replaced fuel pump relay and ECM fuse, as well as the fuel filter on the off chance it was clogged up, and I can hear the pump working although it seem quieter than normal. Any suggestions on what to check from here?\012\012Any and all suggestions are very much appreciated!\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 14-01-2019

Answers :

Pull off top of throttle open look in with flash light see gas any where? turn on key look again. the fuel system is inside intake and the regulator flows a 1/2 gal a minute in the intake and fills the cylinders with gas and locks engine ck oil level the gas drains down as it sets.
Check your battery posts and terminals are clean, if is ok, you can check the wiring the charing circuit, maybe the guy installing the stereo broke a corroded wire off.
