In the 1988's to the 94's they had a lot of distributor's go bad. I know it sounds funny but I have worked on them for over 20 years. You can replace the module or the pickup coil in the distributor, which is about the only two parts you haven't changed, and still not start but if you buy a rebuilt distributor it would most likely solve your problem.

Can I interchange a 1980-1985,305 chevy engine with a 1991 305 chevy?


as it is the basic 305 block the differences may be fuel injection over carburettor which may require sensor attachments but basically the engine should just slot in place.

1990 camry timing mark keeps moving


How much? And is it accompanied by poor performance, hard starting or bad economy? You can expect the engine timing to move about under control of the ECU, which is reacting to temp, load, throttle, and sheer bad temper.

97 chev truck starting problem getting worse. will start when warmed up. have to crank several times when cold. i have changed fuel filter


If its a fuel injection throttle body, it has a cold start valve that might be the problem. check for vacume leaks, shorted wires. If there is a check engine light or service engine soon or anything like that , then check to find out what code it is giving you. Then mayby we can narrow it down some more

1990 chevy blazer 350 ci throttle body fuel injected . the motor is flooding out u can see the injectors keep dumping fuel into the throttle body


Sounds like you have an injector leaking. Have someone just cycle the key on and off to run the fuel pump but don't crank the engine. If you see fuel dripping from the injectors, unbolt the injector cover on the throttle body, remove the injectors and replace the orings around the injectors.

Idle to fast how do i adjust the idle


If you have injection you can't. Check the coolant temperature sensor and the intake air temp sensor as well as the idle air control. First though, clean the throttle body bore where the throttle plate is...often that gets gummed up and doesn't close properly.

The mass air flow often goes bad on them. Did you have the vehicle scanned. Try unplugging the mass air flow and driving it. It is built into the air intake hose. If that does not change things, check the fuel pressure, and the throttle position sensor.

Hope this helped
