Most chevy 5.3 do not use a cap and rotor. Most have single coil per spark plug and wire. Trace spark plug wires to coil usually above the valve cover.

    Do you have a check engine light? I had one similiar to this not to long ago. Code was for #7 cylinder changed plug and wire to no solution.Fuel injector was bad. i have had similiar problems where a simple bottle of injector cleaner has worked.

The gm 5.3 liter engine has a single coil pack for each cylinder. If you follow the plug wires up from the spark plugs you will find the coil packs. No distributor.

This Year and Model does not have a rotor and distributor cap. It has a coil pack. The skaing that you describe at 45 mile s per hour could be because the (2) fron wheel are in need of high speed balancing or one of the tires/rims are out of round damaged tire or bent rim. Godd Luck contact if you need more help.

I had the same problem. The truck seemed to pull back as if I was pulling a load suddenly...The engine light would come on, then go out...It kept this up until it stoped dead..Problem? the problem was the cam was eating away at my distributor gear..Like the oil pump was binding up...one side chewed only..instead of just replacing the distributor I opted to rebuild and use a new cam..Now im on here trying to figure how to time it..

Hello: Have you recently had any work done to it ? It may need a tune up.That includes spark plugs, spark plug wires, and a distributor cap, and (rotor if applicable).You may have a bad or cracked spark plug wire causing the spark to jump once in awhile.

Where is the rotore /cap located in a 1999 silverado 4.8


I believe those motors have a distributorless ignition system. Each cylinder has a coil mounted on top of the valve cover.

Replaced distributor and rotor not starting


Are you sure you have the plug wires on the right location on the distributor cap? You'll need to have a diagram to check by. If you're off 1 placement to the right or left it won't start.
