I just changed distributor gear & a new cap,started up ran for a few hours drove really good,woke up warmed it up,then when i took off it kinda hesitated then a lil backfire then it died out,its cranking...


because you have done work on the distributor, that is the area I would be checking. Check for damaged rotor button, cracked cap, ignition module and even the drive shaft of the distributor. There may be something you missed when working on the distributor.

Crank Shaft Sensor for 2.5E 1991 Chevy S10

Yes i have a 96 chevy 2500 with a 350 and i cant fegure out what is causeing an engine miss i done repalced plugs wires roter and crank sensor it only mises when driving engins sounds solid at idle


What you are saying is the engine runs rough under load.
If the fuel system is in good condition, the ignition system would be my first target.
You mentioned plugs wires and rotor. Did you replace the cap ?
What about the coil ? The pickup in the bottom of the distributor ?
Any of these components could cause a miss-fire.
Even a faulty O2 sensor could cause a lean fuel mixture.
Is the check engine light on when you are driving ?

The crank angle sensor maybe bad. It sends a signal to the computer so the spark plugs fire up.

Choke Light rough idle


adjust your carb, the 2 screws on each side of the carb adjust so you can get the car to idle correctly, also check your distributor

96 chevy tahoe won't start?


Mine did this with a cap and rotor. I changed it six months prior, but ended up having a faulty cap from Jegs which caused it to backfire. I had crank, spark, fuel, but the cap was crossfiring and wouldn't run.

This cost me a new flexplate, two starters, still a cap and rotor just due to the backfires.

1990 chevy 350 distributor wiring diagram and firing order


The firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.
The distributor rotates in a clockwise direction. The engine must be on the compression stroke on the #1 cylinder. Line up the timing marks. Remove the cap and the rotor should be pointing to approximately the 5 o'clock position.

Good Luck
