Make sure your on the compression stroke not the exhaust stroke. Check to make sure your not 180 degrees out with the distributor.

My chevy g20 van has a new alternater and new battery but it runs only when a park the van the next day the battery is dead i keep charging the battery help with some ideas


do a physical check to see if there any lights on that should not be ( boot light 0 glove box light head lights). Remove the battery earth cable and reconnect an amp meter in the circuit to get an idea of the current flow . Even though the battery is new I would have a load test done on it as it may be defective in a cell. Have an accredited auto electrician check the alternator as it may be the regulator is faulty.

How do i mark my timing belt and take it off while doing a head gasket job on a 91 honda accord lx


put it at top dead center, also when you remove the cover rotate until mark on crank gear lines up with mark on oil pump housing ,it right behind the gear, also you will see notches on the cam gears and the rear cover those should also line up when crank gear is aligned, sometime marks on cams are 180 degrees off which just means crank has to be turn one more time, then double mark gears that all, good luck.

Hi, I have a 1986 Chevy Van G20, V8, 5 Liter, 4 barrel carb. I cannot start the van, (all of a sudden it happened). It has a freshly charged battery, new starter, new fuel pump, new fuel filter, and has...


If it is getting spark and fuel check the timing. The timing chain may have jumped.Take out #1 spark plug and tap engine till the compression stroke comes up. To check just hold your finger over the plug hole and the compression will blow it out. Then rock crank by hand and set to top dead center. Take distributer cap off and see if rotor faces #1 cylinder. If you have spark to the plugs and the plugs are good and you have fuel timing or compression is all that is left.

91 chevy G20


well not sure exactly why it wont line up use something to turn the crank and cam to appropiate position start sliding crank gear until cam gear is touching then start to push both at same time make sure your crank key and cam pin are bothin place On many OHV pushrod engines, the crankshaft sprocket is installed on the crankshaft nose and the crankshaft is rotated to position piston #1 at TDC. At this point, a mark stamped onto the crankshaft sprocket is pointing directly upward (toward the camshaft).
The camshaft sprocket is then temporarily bolted to the cam and used to rotate the cam until a mark stamped on the cam sprocket is pointing directly downward (toward the crankshaft). The sprocket is then removed from the cam (without allowing the cam to rotate).
The timing chain is looped over the cam gear, the mark on the cam gear is positioned directly downward, and the chain is looped around the crankshaft sprocket. When the cam sprocket is attached to the cam, the timing marks on the crank and cam sprockets should be pointing toward one another.
