GMC Jimmy owners have reported 3 problems associated with gas recirculation valve (egr valve) (under the engine and engine cooling category).
#1 - Gas Recirculation Valve (egr Valve) problem of the 1998 GMC Jimmy
The vehicle involved was a 1998 GMC Jimmy. VIN of the vehicle was 1GKDT13W7W_. Noted issues with my 98 Jimmy (purchased 12/97)that I have had to repair which I believe were defective parts:
1) 10/00 mileage=57248 replaced faulty ignition switch due to dash board lights not working
2) not repaired to date: wipers have had occasions they did not work. I usually can get them working by turning them on/off a few times. Intermittent mode takes a long time(3-10 seconds) to start running in best scenario. 3) both front reclining seat levers broke off(brittle metal rod)within first 3 years of usage. I have not replaced due to cost of replacing complete seat assemblies is only fix. 4) 12/04 mileage=129,518 throttle choke plate assembly disintegrated partially and jammed throttle open. This almost caused an accident as could not come to a complete stop while car was running. After broken piece worked its way past the valves I needed $1900 in cylinder head repairs. The failure date was 12/15/04.
