Question about 1988 Chevrolet C1500
Ok my truck is an 88 chevy scottsdale and it has a 4.3 v6 it is fourwheel drive and im having problems with it shutting off randomly mainly at a low idle i have replaced alot of stuff on it including spark module, throttle position sensor and a coil and everything else in the firing system minus a new distributor. but it shuts off mainly at low speed or idle and i have no idea what is causing it because the timing is set right and i have jus changed all these parts could someone possibly tell me what is wrong?
I had an identical problem with my 88 Scottsdale. After a week of head scratching by my local dealer, and $1000. worth of shop diagnostic time, they found a bad distributor shaft. Apparently, there is some sort of star wheel on the end of the shaft which has lost magnetism. Replace the shaft.
