Question about 1996 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

1996 chevy c1500 won't start.

Replaced coil, ignition module, plugs. Distributor cap and rotor are about 6 months old and look fine. Spark at plug is yellow. Seems that it is not hot enough? What else could I check?

    replaced fuel filter. pump was replaced about a year ago. you can hear it working.

  • oldsman143 Jan 04, 2009

    it spins over with no problem. it's not the starter or solenoid. would the crankshaft position sensor keep it from starting? I just don't want to think I need to replace the fuel pump again. any way to check fuel delivery without a pressure gauge?

    Probably need to get the Starter Solinoid Checked Maybe Even the Starter Itself.

    Yes it could. You can have someone Try to Start it and hold a Light over the Fuel Injectors and see what you get.

Engine died while driving, no spark, replaced coil, now starts, idles, runs well at low rpm, but misfires when accelerating. No check engine costs thrown. What should I check next.


Change your ignition module. The distributor is a weak point of the Honda, I will always change out the whole thing than just try the coil.

Ok I have replaced the Distributor, Cap, Rotor, checked all spark plugs and my 93 chevy c1500 is still jumping RPM'S when driving and will shut off! Can someone please help me??/


It could be a fuel problem, the pickup coil in the bottom of the distributor, or the ignition module among other things.
Someone would need to figure out if the ignition system is causing the problem or if one of the injectors is failing.

I have a 1993 chev pick-up v6 4.3, i just installed new spark plugs,new plug wires, distributor cap and rotor button.All plug wires are back in the right position,and i used the firing order 1-6-5-4-3-2...


This diagram is for 1998-1995 Chevy 6 cylinder 4.3L engines.
Your got the firing order exactly correct, at 1-6-5-4-3-2, but here's the thing to double-check:
The distributor rotation is clockwise (note badly rendered arrow in picture).

Since you probably got everything right, then you're left with really unusual/rare causes of
failure of the ignition system:
(a) rotor button misaligned/failing to make contact?
(b) rotor button not pressed onto distributor shaft far enough therefore failing to provide correct
proximity to distributor cap contacts when coil fires
(c) coil wire or contact loose/disconnected - press coil wire firmly down into distributor cap.
(d) distributor shaft of other damage caused during installation of rotor.
(e) spark plug wires defective from factory
(f) spark plugs defective from factory
(g) battery low - may need a charge to start
(h) ICM (ignition control module) failure - hook up your HEI (high energy ignition) tester, and
watch the quality of the spark on each cylinder.
(i) fuel problem? If spark is being properly delivered, its gotta be a fuel problem...
(j) distributor cap not screwed down flush to top of distributor? maybe just on one side?

Inspect the inside of the distributor cap - if there are lots of little metal bits all over the inside
of the distributor cap, then you know you have a misalignment of some type in there, and the
rotor and cap are destroying each other. normal operation will throw a quota of spark-ed off
metal bits inside the distributor cap, but since your cap is brand new, your attempts to start
the engine should have rotated the distributor so few times, you should see no metal debris.

Inspect the distributor cap contacts to see if any spark marks are more of less in the middle
of the cap's proper "contact zone". If not, you've diagnosed an internal misalignment, which
you know how to correct.

1989 chevy truck, 5.7...will not start....no fire at spark plugs, Bat. voltage at ignition coil and to ignition module, tested ignition coil (OK), new distributor and rotor, no change. Used starting fluid...


Hi, I believe there is a computer problem. If possible check codes for no start condition. if you know the no.#1 cylinder at TDC (Top Dead Center) on engine then you will know no#1 distributor is. Good luck.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

I had the same problem with my 85 cj7 this week, I relpaced the ignition control module, plugs, wires, cap, rotor and the the coil; still had no fire to plugs. the problem turned out to be my distributor, replaced it today and she fired right up. Most likely it was the pick up module in the distributor that went bad.
