Question about 1996 GMC Jimmy
Your carb has a very small pinhole that lets the fuel in the float section drain out. You may have to replace the carb. Good luck with that.

Try to unplug the mass airflow sensor and start it. It will idle higher but should run fine. If it works then you need a MAF sensor. Be sure you have an OBDII code puller to clear the computer when done

When was the last time the fuel filter was chg. If you can't remember its time for a new one.If it does not help after you chg. filter, best to fuel pressure test, to see if pump is going bad.

I would like more info, like what have you done so far. But it could be related to fuel line pressure (needs to over 35 psi), or and over due complete tune-up. If tuneup was done recently then go back over it. The plug wires are not easy to put on and if the little tiny black clip breaks off the wire is junk. If the wires are not on correctly it will cause a misfire. But my first guess would be a tired fuel-pump. let me know if that helps or if you may have other questions.
