Q: 1995 GMC Yukon won't start

asked by on February 03, 2016

My car won't start.

The GMC Yukon 1995 came with 2 different motors and the 5.7 was the most common. The most common problems with this vehicle from most to least common are: the fuel pump and filter, starter motor, ignition module, crankshaft position sensor, battery, ignition coil, and ignition switch. These are just a few of the possible causes of your no start. I recommend you have a mechanic like one from YourMechanic check your vehicle to determine what is causing the no-start condition.
