FAQs—GMC K25/K2500 Pickup
For a week now, my GMC K25/K2500 Pickup has been suffering from an ignition problem. It won't start even with a verified fuel pressure of 50 lbs. or a shot of ether fluid. The coil sparks with a spark tester, but I only get irregular flashes. I already replaced the distributor cap, rotor, and even wires and plugs, but nothing seems to work. What could be causing this problem?
This is a common problem not only among GMC pickups but also to all types of vehicles. Over time, the fuel filter might catch dirt and debris that can cause your vehicle to have problems with the ignition. When this happens, it won't allow the fuel to flow into the engine, making your vehicle refuse to start. What you need to is to replace the fuel filter with a new one, and try starting your ignition again. If it still won't work, you might want to try adding some fuel injector cleaner to ensure that nothing is blocking the way of the fuel from going into the engine.
I always say that I am a proud owner of a GMC K25/K2500 Pickup for a few years now. As of writing, it currently has 60,000 miles on its odometer. Everything's working perfectly fine, and it is really useful for hauling heavy cargo until I experienced problems with its transmission. Recently, I've been hearing a clicking and clunking sound coming from underneath my hood. It's really disturbing because every time I hear it, I feel like something's going to fall off. What should I do?
This is not a common problem among vehicles, but in this case, since the vehicle has more than 50,000 miles already, the noise might be due to a failed transmission system. This is inevitable because over time, all of your vehicle's components are bound to fail and wear out especially if you are not regularly maintaining it. When this happens, you may need to take your truck to an expert for diagnosis. If all else fails, what's left to do is to replace the entire transmission system.
When I was driving on my way home from office last night, I noticed that my antilock brake system (ABS) warning light illuminated. I was running at about 65 miles per hour, which is my usual speed. The next thing I know was my truck's engine died on me. I've never experienced something like this before, and I wonder what caused this to happen. What's wrong with my truck?
Unfortunately, you just experienced your ABS to shut down on you while you are driving. This usually happens when you are driving at about the speed of 60-70 miles per hour. There are only a few symptoms that point to this problem, like the illumination of the ABS warning light, followed by a shutdown and failure of the power steering of your vehicle. When this happens, make sure to bring your vehicle to your dealer for diagnosis and repair. Neglecting this problem can result in road accidents.
