Timings off, or bad ignition module in new distributor. Disconnect coil wire. Remove number on sparkplug, front left sitting in drivers seat.Have someone bump motor over while holding finger in spark plog hole. Crank slow till you hear/frrl a hard compression push. Check rotor in relation to number one plug on distributor cap. Probably off a couple teeth. Doesn't take much. If not that, replace module in distributor. Go new, not junkyard unless you know the boneyard motor was good that you took it out of.

No spark at plug wires, but have spark at coil on 2002 chevy astro van


Is it a strong spark at the coil? If it is to weak it won't travel through the wire.

Chevy Blazer Extreme 2002 still won't start


Those are NOTORIOUS for fuel pump problems. If your fuel pressure is just 1 or 2 pounds low it will not start.

2002 chevy 3500 duramax 6.6 ran hot now cranks but won't start


Check spark plugs, leads, distributor cap & rotor arm, fuel pump, fuel filter, coil pack(s), relays, replace any items that are suspect IE Fuel filter which has probably not been changed since new even though they should be changed on all vehicles every 18 months, all of this can be done at home & will save you a lot of bucks in mechanic/garage fees,

Thanks for choosing FixYa. Your cam is built in the distributor. You will have to change the entire distributor to fix it.

2002 chevy blazer 4 door 4x4 wont start when cold or rainy out but will start when the suns out and warm. Any ideas?


This sounds like a bad distributor or sparkplug wires. i would replace the cap and rotor and wire, a matter of fact just do a complete tune up. thye problem is the coil wire is shorting out when its damp or wet out and also you may have mosture in the dist cap.

2002 chevy blazer won't start when it is cold/damp outside. Fuel pump repaced 3 times in a year. What could causing this?Starts fine when weather is nice.


could be a defective distributor cap(crack in it allows moisture in...moisture displaces the spark from where it needs to go).
You could try to replace the distributor cap and rotor.

My 2002 chevy venture van won't start after going through some water yesterday


You probably have water under the distributor cap. Take off distributor cap and spray with Either and wipe out good. Let it set for awhile then put back on and try. If you have air compressor you can blow out cap after you spray with either.
