Question about 1989 Chevrolet Astro Cargo
About a week ago it rained really hard I could not get the van to start, it sat for a day still couldn't get it to start, finally had someone jump the car, started right up, so I figured it was the battery. Replaced the battery. This morning (or rather late last night) it rain very very hard again, and again the van will not start. It acts like it is getting gas (Can smell it) - but no spark the battery is less then a week old (Ok, I know it has been sitting on the shelve, but it is a new battery) - Where do I go from here - Does this van have a distrubutor and rotor? and if so where is it located I can't see one just by openning the hood - I probably can replace that myself if I knew where it was - but otherwise I am at a lost as to where to go next - and Once the van runs it runs good and is dependable for the day. Seems to only happen when it rains very hard - (Also, just so you get the full picture, where I park and I have to park here no other options - There is standing water 9 times out of 10 when it rains (even a little rain)) Don't know if that would make a differance or not, it does not cover the engine or come close to anything in the engine, just something to add to the equation. Thanks for the help.
These vans where kind off know for haveing problems with there dist. check the dist cap for cracks, check the coil wire also. what has happened is that mosture is getting in some where and probley the cap is at fault. when s the last time the vech has had a decent tune/up cap rotor plugs wires . replace the cap and rotor and coil wire, should solve your problem . but i would recommend looking at the other tune /up parts good luck kdc744
