SOURCE: Does my 2000 Blazer have a distributor cap and rotor?

First I wasn't a party to this situation, so I cant say for sure if you were ripped off or not. I can tell you that the symptoms you were having and the repair does possibly match up. Your rotor though is part of the wheel assembly and has nothing to do with overheating, One thought is you may have had another issue they noticed while repairing your vehicle. I would definitely follow up with them and find out why your rotor was replaced:)

it sounds like you have a weak spark. take the spark plug that fires good and put it on each of the other three wires, if it still fires good then the problem is your plugs...energy not coming through them. if no change then swap the wire and plug that fire good together onto another position on the cap, if it fires good in another position then its the wires. if it still doesn't change and the cap and rotor are new, i'd look at the coil.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

Car will not start


If I am right, the firing order is,1-3-4-2. With the dissy cap removed, have someone turn the engine over so you can see which way the rotor arm goes. Set the engine to TDC and the rotor arm should point to the No1 cylinder at the start of the firing order. If it rotor points away from the No 1 cylinder then slacken the dissy housing and move the diddy until the rotor ppoints to the No1 cylinder. Now pHT lead from the No1 spark plug to the No 1 possition on the dissy cap. The next lead goes on the next available possition on the dissy cap in the way of the rotation of the rotor then to the No3 spark plug carry on the same with 2 and 4 and that should solve your problem unless you have a different firing order.

It seems you have a timing problem. Have the engine timed properly. If that does not work it could be a craked rotor or distributor cap. have all these checked.
