I have a Chevy 2500 pick up truck. My son thought he'd replace the spark plugs. He removed the distributor cap, didn't understand it and now the truck won't start. He did not replace any spark...


firing order for 5.7 v8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 mostly all of the chevy v8s are the same firing order. the rotor button in distributer turns clockwise, the cylinder numbers are 1-3-5-7 on drivers side, 2-4-6-8 is on passengers side. To get started get your distrutor cap[new one] look on the top you will see a #1that's where you begin you must know if if rotates clockwise or counter clockwise start in that direction then follow the firing order and cylinder line up. good-day!! if cap is not marked, just pull out #1 plug, put a straw or similar in plug hole on top of piston. turn engine over by crank in front of vehicle with a wrench, when the piston comes to the very top just before it starts going down. this is tdc. and rotor button should be pointing to #1 wire on dist, cap. follow from there. good-day !!

Try to narrow down the problem by checking a few things when it's not starting. Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines .

2001 Mazda Milleniacheck engine light came on. .car is running rough and hesitates while moving. codes says misfire on cylinder 6. Had tune up. put in new distrutor cap. Still drives really bad. . ....


check all spark plug wires and replace. age and wear and tear will cause them to crack and therefore create the misfire in your cylinder causing the engine to run rough

2002 astro van tuns over but won't start. put new plugs and distrutor, have power to windows and radio


Is there any spark?

To check:

Pull a spark plug wire out, put it on one of the old spark plugs, make sure the spark plug is touching metal (needs to be grounded) and have someone turn the engine over, to see if there is a spark.

If there is no spark, the most likely problem is the ignition control module.

Other things to check:

cap/rotor
coil

Hope this helps

Replace the spark plugs and wires along with a distributor cap and rotor. Be careful to leave the old wires and plug wires connected to dist.cap, just remove dist. cap from the distributor and lay aside with plug wires on it then install rotor then new cap and proceed to replace each wire for cap and spark plug one at a time so you don't mix up the spark plug wire firing order. Cap laying to the side is used for reference purpose.

My truck is a 1996 1/2ton there is gas getting to the engine and there is spark in the spark plugs we fixed the distributor cap and checked all the spark plug wires, the truck will turn over but it will...


Hmm, This sounds like a timing problem.

Best way to do this easily is that:

Take out the #1 spark plug crank/tap motor over until air comes out of spark plug hole--compression stroke(this is "TDC"---Top Dead Center)

Remove Distrubutor cap and check and see if rotor points to #1 spark plug wire on cap----if not move the #1 spark plug wire to that position on cap---then install rest of spark plug wires according to the firing order from the #1 plug wire.

Install #1 spark plug and start truck---you may have to rotate distributor a little bit to get best performance.

My distributor is fine but i lost spark on my 1994 chevy k1500 with a 4.3l v6 vortec engine cannot figure it out checked everything i could think of what could be the problem?


change the ignition module located under the rotor in the distributor cap it has 2 small 8mm bolts and plugs into the distrutor wiring in the cap ( you,ll see) it is flat usually with 2 wires clipped into each end ..this will be the problem..I have changed many.
