Maybe its your distributer gear stripped a tooth on gear. Pull cap and have someone turn motor over, look to see rotor turning 360% smoothly no skip or hesitation?

Have you confirmed a good spark at the spark plugs. If it isn't there work your way back to the coil and see if you have spark there.

The fuel pressure needs to be around 60 psi on these or they won\'t run. Fuel **** are very common failures on these.

What lights ? And won't start how ? The clicking is more then likely a relay or a module of some sort . When you turn the key to the start position does the start engage an spin the motor ? Or nothing happens , a crank no start or no crank no start !

93 chevy c 1500 wont start

You must properly diagnose your ignition system to find the cause of the "no-spark". There are several steps involved depending on where the problem is. It could be anything from a bad distributor cap to a failed ignition control module.

Im wanting to put a carburator on my 1992 chevrolet. right now it has a throttle body willl it run with a carburator

Should be no problem getting it to run, since the point of throttle body originally was to be able to use a carb intake manifold.
However, passing DEQ may be harder to do.
And you may have to use a variable potentiometer to adjust the O2 sensor readings so that the ignition works optimally. Although a 92 may not even have an O2 sensor or electronically controlled timing.
If you want to simplfy ignition as well, you can buy a self contained breakerless distributer. I recently put one on a Chevy engine in a boat for $225.

It is possible to plug the main connector in upside down. Check to see if this is what you did. Other than that, does the engine roll over?

I have a 2001 chevy express 1500 v6 it wont start i check fuel pump,fuses and replaced distributor cap and rotor. havent check spark plugs or wires. it wont start...

Check for broken timing belt. Put a screew into spark plug head put the other end close but not touching to a metal engine part. have some one check for spark while you turn over engine. if thei is no spark check with distributor cap off if the rotor rotates when engine is being tuned over. if not then check timing chain. Good luck.

Car wont turn over

Sounds like you have a bad starter. To check this you can try taking a hammer to the starter and tap it while someone in the car turns the key. If it starts you know you have a bad starter and need to replace it. Hope this helps you out
