Question about 1994 Chevrolet Astro
We parked the van in driveway, went to start it next morning would not start. We could not hear the fuel pump engage, so we replace the fuel pump and fuel filter. It is getting gas to the check valve under the doghouse. It shoots a stream of gas out now, before replacing the parts it just barely ran over the valve. It is getting blue fire to the coil, yellow fire to the plugs, and it will start with starting fluid but will die as soon as starting fluid burns off. Have not checked the injectors. I do not know what one looks like or how to check if one is clogged. Also if it is just one injector clogged would it keep van from starting? We have also been told to replace the EGR valve. Would that keep it from starting and is there a way to test it before replacing it, as it is very expensive to replace. Also man at parts store told us to pour a teaspoon of heave weight oil in each spark plug cylinder and it should start. Anyone ever heard of that before? I think that would just foul out all the plugs, not start the van. All suggestions will be greatly appreciated. We are pulling our hair out.
Maybe its the ignision fuse your van will do all the starting signs but if this fuse has gone it wont run
