I would expect to find the cable has stretched or is about to break, or the pivot pin is falling out of the pedal hinge.

The crank position sensor is at the front bottom of engine (bottom of timing chain cover). The cam position sensor is under the cap and rotor. Definitely check the ignition wires and cap and rotor first for corrosion. Maybe ignition module or coil acting up but they usually stop engine from running. Check fuel pressure if ignition is good.

I've gone to the car parts store twice and twice I've received the wrong headlight to replace the low beam on my 1997 Chevy C1500 2WD. Should it be a bulb? Or an assembly? Which side should I access it...


It should be just a bulb but the best advice i can offer is to remove it first then take it with you to the auto factor for a new one .I never go to get parts without the old one in my hand first as its just a waste of time

A good thing to check is the universal joints on your rear drive shaft. When they get worn, one of the first symptoms is a noise/ vibration that only occurs at certain speeds. Sometimes you can visually inspect them, and see signs of rusty powder coming out of the bearing caps.

Trannie, no drive no od,no 2 will go in r low 1


if you drove it too far too fast in 4 wheel low. you could have done some serious damage to the trani. i have the same truck in a 1998 and the tachomiter goes nuts at 15 mph in 4 low. it was never meant to drive for any distance in 4 low. if your lucky. when your rearend went it didn't take out your drive shaft. if your not lucky. your drive shaft took some punishment and in turn damaged the trani.

I had a similiar problem with my 1997 GMC 1500. The engine would sometimes even die while I was driving it. It turned out to be the sending unit (in the fuel tank). I replaced that about 2 years ago, and no trouble since.

No fuel to the injectors on a 1997 Chevy c1500.


can be the distributor or maybe the fuel pump let the truck sit and then turn key almost on but not enough to initiate start up and see if you hear pump in the gas tank and if thats not it, it could very well be your distributor it might  be moist in the cap or button area
