Question about 1997 Chevrolet C1500
The truck ran fine then stopped to visit friends then the truck wold not start, it turns over but no fire. We used starter fluid ans nothing. We changed out the rotor button, distributor cap, crank sensor, ignition coil, but nothing. It sounds like it is trying to start but won't fire up.
Check what the battery reads while starter is running.Or you can turn on the headlights and try to start it to see if the headlights dim or go out.
If so then the battery is too weak or has bad connections at battery or at the engine ground or starter solenoid.

You need to have the ignition control module checked (It's inside the distributor)

Hi, I believe there is a computer problem. If possible check codes for no start condition. if you know the no.#1 cylinder at TDC (Top Dead Center) on engine then you will know no#1 distributor is. Good luck.
