Take your tires off the front one side at a time and remove your splash skirt,you can change 2 from there and the other one by removing your cowoling from inside the van.

GMC safari won't start, new coil, ICM, plugs (delco) Wires, cap, rotor, get's gas, new starter.


This just happened to my Dad's 1998 GMC Safari...

Firstly...

Check the hard vacuum line as previously noted by others.
If that's ok, then take off the intake pipe and spray brake clean into the throttle body while trying to crank it.

If it starts.. then you have a fuel related issue, if it doesn't start then you have an electrical related issue.

Our van did not start after trying to use brake clean.

Take off the console inside the vehicle's cab and get at the distributor.

Usually people noted that the ICM (ignition control module, inside the distributor) was the main issue here, but on our van, the distributor and wires looked brand new so it was probably recently changed (we got this van 5 months ago), so I assumed the spark plugs were also changed at the same time.

We unplugged the connection from the coil to the distributor, tried to crank it, and no spark was being generated, boom, got a new coil and starts up fine.

Just takes a bit of trial and error.

I have an 1998 gmc safari van, it quit while driving down the road. I had a friend tow it home. we tried starting fluid in the intake. It will turn over fine, but wont start. What could be wrong?


It is the Ignition. If you put starting fluid in it, and it did not start, then you probably have no spark.

Check that you have spark to the spark plugs. If not, then check the vehicles' Ignition System, and repair as neccessary.

When should we do a tune up on this van?


This van came with platinum spark plugs which should be good for 100,000 miles. I would replace the fuel filter at 50,000 miles. As long as you have no running or starting problems that's all I would do in the first 100,000 miles

Had the spark plugs and plug wires changed on my 1994 GMC Safari minivan, and now it runs very rough. If I stop, the engine shuts off. Backfires a lot also. The whole van shakes bad going down the road....


If your Safari did not expecience these systoms prior to you changing the plugs and ignition wires, then you may have crossed two or more of these wires when they were repalced.

Check your spark plugs. That could be one of the reasons. Or are you sure you purchased the proper Fuel pump?
