GMC SIERRA BATTERY PROBLEM
1998 GMC Sierra • 95,000 miles
I have a 1998 GMC seierra and was driving down the road the other day when the truck just shut off for no reason. It didn't backfire or pop that I recall. It turns over hard. someone suggested that it sounds like it may have jumped timing. What possibiltie should i look at?

The battery gauge says it has about 12-13 volts. Even with a 14 volt set of jumper cable from a big tow truck. It has a timing type of miss sound when rolling over. It was a new motor when I bought it from the dealership one year ago. It ran excellent all that day until it died in the middle of the road. Could the distributor cap maybe have cracked or modular have burned up or timing chain or cam jumped? I wanna make sure that I can check these things inexpensively just in case I'm wrong.
Did they warranty the new engine? If this is a new engine, you shouldn't be having mechanical issues. If the engine is under warranty, I wouldn't touch it, take it back to dealership.
It was sold as is vehicle. The owner before the dealership put the motor in. I've got too much money wrapped up in it.
You could do cylinder compression test, when the plugs are out.
How do I replace a battery in a 2009 Chevy Equinox LS with a 3.4L V6. Most cars are straight forward, this looks difficult. Shame on GM. Thanks.
