Question about Chevrolet Silverado
I am thinking the distributor cap but I am not sure how to pin point that I have replaced just about everything on the distributor and there is still no spark. I've checked all the fuses too. What else could it be?
Depending on your year it could be that your crankshaft positioning sensor has gone out. This is what regulates your spark. For older years, If you have changed out the whole distibutor then you can follow that by changing your plugs and wires as well. To best test this you can take one of you spark plug wires off the spark plug itself and either use a specific light the you plug into the wire or you can use a screw driver being very careful where you place it. If you are getting spark through the wires then you may not have the right gap on your spark plugs or they may be bad. If you don't get spark it deals with your wires or distributor. Best way is to buy new ones and that will fix the problem.
