Check your cap; see if it is on correctly. Also check every wire on it. It may just be a loose wire. Definitely check everything on the distributor. Sounds like just a bad wire. If you had the cap misaligned it would still spark; only off time. So, double check the install on the cap and wires bud. :)

Mike, Check for diagnostic codes. Check fuses/relays,wires/plugs for pinched,damage or corrosion. Could be a lot of things like distributor armature, cap, rotor, stator, ICM, coil,spark plugs,wires, make sure ground is good to distributor. Use the attached forum links,instruction, guides to help diagnose ignition spark problems, Good luck

1993 Chevy Suburban will not start and has no spark


Check all fuses under the hood. Test the coil with an ohmmeter. Check for battery voltage on the coil primary with key on.
If all good, suspect the crank position sensor. A bad sensor will cause no spark.

If you haven't already done so, replace the distributor cap and rotor. There is most likely corrosion inside the cap that is causing a crossfire condition.

This is a common problem on that engine.

Don't know why being hot would aggravate it, but start with the cap.

Assuming none of the wires are crossed, AND you replaced the cap rotor wires with quality replacements (meaning AC Delco) then you may have a bad coil. Remove coil from dist cap if HEI and look for any signs of arcing such as blackened areas.

Son put penny in the cig lighter. And now the car wont start.


Check any burning points along with the wiring loom in dashboard starting from cig. lighter and if there is a little sign of any melting cable then replace it. Continuity test is essential for the circuit. Its better if you go to an electrician because they have all necessary tools to find out a short circuit.

Put a fuel pressure gauge on it and watch it to see if when it dies you are losing fuel pressure. if you dont lose pressure then that eliminates the fuel system
