Why my 94 Astro van will not fire


this generation of gm vehicles is easy to troubleshoot. the engine needs 3 things to run: compression, fuel, and spark. since you mention fire, i assume you have no spark.

disconnect any random spark plug wire and connect the end to a hei spark tester. crank engine and observe for spark. if you have no spark, disconnect the center terminal of the distributor cap and use the hei tester in the same manner. spark means cap and rotor bad or bad plug wireset. no spark means make more checks.

check for battery voltage and good ground on distributor. check for open or shorted ignition module or ignition coil windings. if power and ground is present and ignition coil tests ok, check for ignition pulses at coil primary. if you have no ignition pulses feeding the coil, change the distributor.

with that generation of vehicle, the ignition system will operate without help from the computer. don't even troubleshoot the guts of the distributor, if you change the cap, rotor, and anything else, it will be the same price as a remanufactured distributor, and might not fix the problem. if you troubleshoot a low volrage related issue (no pulses, shorted or open circuit, unstable timing, etc), change the whole thing.

With the engine at #1 TDC your rotor bug should be pointing at your #1 plug wire.

1996 Chevy Astro Van--"Will not


I would check the rotor very carefully. They tend to burn a hole through the plastic under the center tab. It's hard to see sometimes. The spark follows that path instead of to the wire terminals. You may just want to try a new distributor cap and rotor.

2000 astro van won't start


What you have to do is check and see if you have fuel pressure.You have to remove the engine cover to check it.If you don`t have a pressure tester then remove the air cleaner hose to the engine and spray it with carb.cleaner or brake cleaner.If it starts for a few seconds then it is more than likely a fuel pump.If it does not start then you have to check for spark at the spark plugs.Make sure you check more than one plug.If no spark then you have to check the distributor cap and rotor.Make sure the rotor is good and cap also.Things that can cause no spark are the ignition module,coil,and cap and rotor.Hope this helps.Good luck.

My son was driving his 1987 chevy astro van and turned a corner and it just died and will not start.The engine will turn but will not crank.He changed the fuel filter hoping that was the problem but it...


Ok do you have a spark? do you have compression? as both of these are needed to make the engine fire up along with fuel.
you may want to check if the cambelt is still intact too.

Dont know what the problem is


Check fuel pressure and check for spark and check that the airflow meter is operating, check for timing as well. Check for any wiring problems(loose connections, corrosion, condensation in distributor cap. Check distributor cap+rotor plug wire from coil to distributor. Check for any worn or damaged wiring or bad ground wire contacts. Air, Fuel, Spark and Timing are the key elements for an engine to run.

Changing a cap and rotor on 2001 Chevy Astro


pull off the center console inside the van to expose the engine. the distributor will be right in front of you. remove 2 screws from the cap, and make sure you get the wires on in the exact order you remove them, or else it wont start. rotor is underneath cap, and i believe the coil is right there on the cap.
