Question about 1998 Chevrolet C1500
1998 Chevrolet drove home running fine, cut it off and tried to crank 2 days later and it wouldn't. New dist cap, Rotor button, pick up module, ignition module and new plugs> Still will not crank and run! Listening to everyone say it had jumped time started trying to find TDC on num 1 and beyond what most people say online finally talked to local mechanic and he said there was a mark on timing cover for TDC so finally found itby taking fan shroud off. Question is if the two marks are lined up rotor button should be pointing toward num 1 on dist cap? And is this normal ? 217000 miles 5.7L
Engines don't jump time when they are not running.
Rotor will point to number 1 plug wire with every other rotation of the crank.
Get an auto repair manual to confirm you have plug wires in right order on distributor cap.
Also suggest finding Factory Service Manuals at library to get troubleshooting charts and diagnostics.
