Question about 1998 Chevrolet K1500
Where did you check for spark? Unplug the coil wire from the distributer cap and check there by placing the end of the wire near something like a ground wire or head bolt while cranking the engine. Don't hold it in your hand. If you have spark comming from the coil wire but not from the cylinder wires then I agree with stevevpb. Very possibly the cap and rotor. A word of advice. If you decide to replace the cap and rotor and/or possibly the iginition wire set as well, use only OEM parts. Yes they are more expensive but many aftermarket ignition parts wind up costing you a lot more in the long run. I've learned that the hard way. An OEM cap will probably run you about 50 bucks; rotor, 20 bucks; wire set, 150 bucks. What a rip but hey, it is what it is.
