If you have someone to assist you, remove the distributor cap, then have someone crank the engine when you are watching the distributor. If the rotor button does not turn with the engine then you have either broken the drive or your timing chain. this is the first check, then get in touch for the next step

SOURCE: 94 corvette dying while driving

almost positive its your fuel pump letting you know its time for a new one.
Could also be; control module
coil
crank sensor
battery with internal plates touching
fuel pump relay(i would change this one regardless)
Your OBD1 should have a stored code and that will probally lead to your pump or relay.

SOURCE: Car died while I was driving home and will not start.

You would have to take the numbe 1 plug out and take the valve cover off .. first run the engine up on the timing mark to tdc the piston should be at top dead center meaning all the way up .. Now with the valve cover off you can check to make sure the valves on number one are closed. if this is the case then your timing is right and your belt or chain is ok... if you have problems with this let me know thanks jerry .. btw did you shoot a little starting fluid into the air cleaner to make SURE its getting fuel ? i now you said the fuel pump was making a noise but you didnt say for sure if there was fuel pressure ? thanks jerry

SOURCE: turns over then dies right away.

check spark plug wires to make sure they"re not miss-routed... start at the coils and work towards the plugs make real sure its got correct firing order sequence... it is usually posted on a label under the hood of most cars and also make sure they have a real good snap on connection both on coil and plugs and that the terminal posts on the coils are really clean! if this doesn't fix the problem then it probably is a timing chain problem..it might not be installed correctly. good luck to you! i hope its just a miss wire.
can you give me some feed back..i'm curious..thanks! a 40k mile car shouldn't need this kind of work..its practically brand new!!

SOURCE: I have a standard transmission Chev Cavalier, and

First of all, I'd be returning this vehical back to the mechanics who obviously did not test drive the vehicl before or after the aparent fix. I'd tell them that i paid you to fix a problem that isn't fixed.

Now that we have that out of the way... some clarification is needed. from what i can tell this struggle for acceleration didn't start till after the "fixed" e-brake right. I'm not 100 percent but i think this year has rear drum brakes... correct me if i am wrong. if they are rear drum, there is an automatic adjustment sproket that "tightens" the e-brake when you reverse and stop. now it seems to me that the new brakes are not fully releasing as they should.

if you have no experience with brakes, I'd go yell at that mechanic and get it fixed... for no more money. You've already paid for the service that you have not recieved.

well it can be ignored
start with anything driven by the serp belt

a tensioner bearing or idler bearing is a probable cause of the noise

how do you see anything in that engine bay

Engine won't turn over.


I'm afraid what you're describing sounds like your bearings went out. Your engine is probably seized up or blown. There is no cheap or easy fix for this problem, your engine will have to be rebuilt or replaced.

Hello everybody, I have 1998 GMC Jimmy and after replacing the worn out AC belt with a new ones squeaking noise (when its cold) is gone BUT some "TUG TUG TUG" noise appear and it sounds like behind the...


Can't help you with the noise, but I suggest that you remove the belt and check all pulleys for any roughness or binding when turned by hand. You have a timing chain...You are right in the "window" where I've seen the most failures. It;s time to change it. It's not an "emergency" but when the chain stretches, it rides up on the cam gear and rips off the plastic gear teeth. And, it will always happen when you have the least amount of money or time to do the repair!
