Question about 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe
Runs great when driving
Turns over but wont start
Posted on Feb 24, 2009
For a larger engine, they could still be missing but you won't notice it once it is turning above the idle speed.
For both of you, I would suggest you check under the hood in the darkest area you can find and with the under-hood light disconnected if you have one, for sparks along the sparkplug and distributor leads.
I had to replace all of them after only four years on my lousy GM vehicle.
For jancsi; check for a drive belt that is close to failing. Your problem sounds like a water pump that isn't being turned as it should. That's why the heater works when you rev the engine, the slippage is less significant once the RPMs are higher.
