How can I tell if my idle control motor is working?

Look for a difference in idle speed. Allow the engine to run for a minute so it settles to a consistent idle, then take note of any difference in the idle RPMs versus the idle you observed earlier. If the idle has not changed at all, it’s likely because your idle control motor has not been functioning.

What should the idle rate be on a 1997 GMC Truck?

Underdog, I don’t know the 1997 5.7, but 1000rpm sounds like a high idle, not where it should “bottom out”. A V8 should idle at 500rpm. GoNDown, did you recently disconnect your battery?

Why is my idle control not working on my car?

If the idle has not changed at all, it’s likely because your idle control motor has not been functioning.

What should I do if my engine won’t start?

You should see a bright spark jumping the gap in the spark tester. If you don’t see a spark, repeat the test. This time, adjust the spark tester to 30KV. If you still don’t see a spark, repeat the test and set the tester to 10KV. If this time you see a spark or no spark, you have a problem with the ignition system.

What causes a GMC truck to turn over but not start?

If the engine starts up normally after doing that, it means that fuel pressure is bleeding off and the fuel pump needs to prime the lines before it can start. It can bleed off from one of two places. 1. Fuel pressure regulator has an internal leak, and fuel is bleeding off back to the tank though the return line. 2.

What did I do when my engine wouldn’t start?

In any event, the “flight recorder” showed that there was good HP oil pressure while cranking, but sensor signals were not getting to the PCM to tell the injectors to fire. The repair was the replacement of the engine wiring harness.

The high pressure fitting can blow out to the point where the engine will not start at all – warm or cold. But running the engine on starting fluid will spin the high pressure pump fast enough to overcome some more severe leaks. Be aware that starting fluid is a stopgap measure, and the truck needs to be repaired soon…

What causes a 6.5L diesel engine to not start?

“The PMD / FSD (Pump mounted driver) is by far the #1 cause of 6.5L no-starts (at least 90%). If your truck experienced random stalling like someone shut the key off before ultimately refusing to start again, the PMD is very likely the issue. Typically the random stalls caused by the PMD will become more frequent as the failure worsens.
