I have changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, rotor on a 1997 chevy s10 truck and still it won't start. we checked for spark and there is spark. we are now checking the fuel relay but don't know


you need 3 things, air, fuel, and spark. if u have spark coming from all plugs, then ur good there, if you have fuel, and it still wont start, it may be the maf sensor or one of the other airflow sensors such as the map sensor.

My 1997 Geo Metro won't start. A friend mechanic charged the battery & put new sparks plugs & Firestone said it needs an air intake valve motor & it is sparking yellow and not blue


I think you can buy any thing on line but but has the air intake has to do with the spark I would check the compression first and go from there.

1988 chevy S10 turns over but won't start getting spark put in new fuel pump,cpu and injector. If I pour A little gas in throttle body hole it will fire for a few sec. fueses all test good.


Hello, just had this problem myself. Check your EGR valve by pulling the vacume line off and pushing up under the valve put your finger over the vacume line hole and release the valve, if it returns to normal position then its bad if not its good. If its bad it needs replaced. Mine did the exact same thing and thats what it was. Hope this helps

1997 chevy tahoe won't start replaced alot of parts like fuel pump, fuel filter, relay, rotor, distutor cap, cam sensor,spark plugs, and just can not figure out why it won't start and i'm


I am with Peter on this one. No diagnostics to this before replacing parts? Not that what you have done is a waste of time by any means but should have been diagnosed first. I assume it is turning over but just not getting gas is why you went the route of of the fuel supply. You could have saved a bit of time by having a fuel pressure test done which is what I think you still need to do here. Verify that the fuel is getting the the engine. That will for once and all confirm or eliminate your fuel problem. This test should not cost you more than 75.00. You can go to a parts store like ORielly and they will let you use a pressure tester for free. Hope this helps and I will keep checking for responses and help with what I can.

Hello. My 1997 Chevy Tahoe refuses to start. The problems began with a bad fuel pump. I changed. It worked. The fuel pump died again. I changed it again and it has been working. I parked it for two weeks....


Now you have a good battery & a starter that turns over the motor

Have you cycled the key on & off with a fuel pressure gauge on the
fuel rail?

Do you have a fuel filter that isn't over 3 or 4 years old?

Have you checked for spark while cranking ? Use an old plug on the wires,
if you have ignition wires,don't ground the wire without resistance

If you removed the ducting & MAF Sensor it won't start

Tell us what you checked & exactly how that was done.
