You may want to check the ignition module underneath the coils on the back. You usually can bring it in and test it at a local auto parts store. As far as the surging, that usually means something fuel related. Hope this helps.

My 2000 jimmy takes about 10 to 20 engine cranks in the morning when its cold out.when it starts its good the rest of the day. but its getting worse the amount of cranking the engine over in the morn


I'd use a fuel pressure gage, check fuel pressure, key on, engine off, first thing in the morning, 60--66 psi, spider fuel system. If you have the spider fuel stem, that system is noted for problems.
There is a service bulletin for cold start-up problems, caused by fuel poppet valves sticking. Once you get it started, it runs fine the rest of the day. The poppet cleaning procedure shows to be a shop procedure.

Hi Mike, Could be something to do with the battery and a loose connection, or a blocked fuel filter or defective pump, which is the most likely. Have a diagnostic scan carried out. Regards John.

Engine turns wil not start


If the engine cranks but does not start, you need three things to make it happen.
Spark at the plugs at the right time, fuel for the injectors, and normal compression.
What have you checked so far ?

Have a '94 S-10 Blazer Tahoe 4X4 and it starts


My suspicion is a starter going bad. Sometimes when starters get old and worn they will start good when the engine is cold but not when the engine is warmed up. Did you perhaps notice that lately is seemed to drag when you tried starting, especially warm or it seemed to crank a little slower? I'd replace the starter. Hope this helps.

My 2000 chevy express van 4.3L has never had a problem until this morning. It was a cool morning and it started funny then died. Show i cranked it over again longer and it then started and stayed...


How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? If you have that spider fuel system, that system is noted for problems. Check the fuel pressure, key on engine off, 60--66 psi. After it starts it will run with less pressure. In the past I have seen service bulletins about the poppet valves sticking, the fix was a cleaning procedure, that was a shop procedure.
Mainly the bulletin talked about hard starts in the morning because of poppet valves sticking, after it starts it will usually run fine the rest of the day, after it sits overnight, you have the same problem the next morning.
There could be other issues?
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.

sounds like the fuel solinoid is not working. it is located on the left side of the engine. if it is not moving when u crank the engine push it up by hand and hold it open and see if the engine stays running. if it does u need anew one.
