    Just wondering if you ever solved this problem?

    This sounds like a resister problem. On cranking the coil gets a full 12 volts, but when it is running it doesn't need that much. when you turn your key to start it sends a full twelve volts to the coil, but as soon as you release the key it runs through a resister to lower the voltage, sounds like it is running a a full twelve volts all thetime

    Check the voltage at the coil when cranking and when you let off the key

Check to see if there is power to the coil when the key is off. If there is it has a short to Batt + on that circut.

Why won't my 2003 sierra start in the damp after I already changed the cap and rotor?


Are there any lights lit up on your dash?? This sounds familiar ... The security system sounds like it is failing which is a very common issue in GM's. There is a module that you can get to bypass it.. you can even put the part in yourself.. read this over and see if you think it will help..

89 gmc jimmy 5.7L it gets spark from coil to distributer but not from distributer to motor. Spark plugs and wires are brand new, module is fine, cap and rotor is fine.


if im correct in saying this, i think there is a small cylindrical looking piece with one wire comming out from the front in the distributer under the distributer cap next to the points this is could a condenser you could try changing this for a new one all so check the gape your points make if to small you will get no spark as well if to big

Three days ago i had to remove the intake manifold on my 1994 gmc yukon 5.7 liter had to remove throttle body and dist have replaced along with dist cap, rotor and coil the truck ran fine but now won't...


Check to make sure the coil wire is secured to the distributor cap and rotor.
Also check that the rotor is not cracked (even if new) and that the spark plugs are not loose - wires are not loose, frayed etc.
Also, make sure all connections on the battery, ground at chassi, and positive on starter are in good repair as well.
Please, let me know if you need further assistance.

I have a 1996 GMC Jimmy with a 4.3L. The car is hard to start after it sits for the day. I found an oxidized distributer. I sanded the posts and it ran fine for about a month. I then replaced the...


moisture in your cap causes oxidation. You should check to make sure the seal for you distributor between the distributor and the cap is still good. Also a faulty ignition system such as a problematic coil or high resistance in your ignition wires can lead to ignition related problems. Doing a partial tune doesn't always work. Do the wires, plugs, cap, rotor, fuel filter, air filter, PVC valve and depending on the mileage the ignition coil.

99 gmc Safari awd 4.3L when it rains engine cranks wont start no codes found backfired so bad it blew the muffler apart at the seams. has new distributer, upper manifold and new upgraded multiport fuel...


This may be due to a bad coil wire shorting out GM had many problems with these ..There was even a recall for this a long time ago.. The wire would short out on the metal foil on the doghouse and the aluminum a/c line if there was any damage or corrosion to the terminals...A new distributor ...I had an apprentice put one in one time and he thought the rotor was to point to #1 and forgot the dist cap was like a printed circut board and the rotor was no wheres near #1 good luck

GMC Safari start problem


I think it's the fuel pump or the fuel pump filter.

Check the fuel system that's where your problem is, my bet is your fuel pump has left this world to a better place.
