It could be the distributor, or rotor. The disributor id the thing you plugged the other end of your new plug wires into.

Why does my 2.5 GMC sonoma truck skips or misses?


Worn timing belt or bad map sensor, weak ignition coil, worn distributor gear (usually starts hard with that) Leaking manifold gaskets all possible causes. Start with a new coil, spray starting fluid around manifold gasket while running, if it revs up in any certain spots, manifold leaking (intake only test), check vacuum lines for cracks and leaks,(MAP) replace sensor. Over 75,000 miles probably timing belt, recommended change interval is 60,000 miles.

Replaced the motor in my 96 sonoma and now it wont


Did you hook all of the grounds up, and did you hook all of the connectors up to the engine? If you do not have spark then I'd be looking at the coil connectors, the grounds for the coil, and the crank sensor. Also look at the harness real good. You may have pinched or broke a wire somewhere.

Spark plug wires mismatched. 1996 GMC Sonoma Pickup Truck.


Their is no distributor on a this vehicle from the factory. Their are two coil packs loctated underneath the intake manifold. If the coil packs have not been replaced then they will be labled 1-4 in white numbers next to the terminal. The pack lolcated on the lowerside of the ignition module should be 2 / 3 and the top 1 / 4.

Fuel pump fuse keeps popping


You have a short to ground or the pump is starting to go bad. You can run a seperate wire from the hot side of the fuse to your pump to see if it is the pump or if you use an ohm meter to check the wire and the pump. Get's a little technical though.
