    Was computer swapped at a Chevy house, and programmed with car's VIN#, mileage, etc.??? Or was it done without any programming? (Needs to be done at a dealer or shop with proper computer interfacing.)



    AND are battery connections perfect? NO loose connex? NO CORROSION??? Battery charged fully and in good condition? Just asking... Tater Todd

    Are you getting fire or not ? make sure there is or isnt fire .. If there is fire getting to plugs try squirting a little fuel into the throat of throttle body or air cleaner area to see if it is a fuel problem ..
