Remove the valve cover on the driver's side and turn the engine over by hand until you see the intake open on #1 cylinder. and then close followed by the exhaust valve starting to open. #1 is front driver's side.Back up a little and set the crank timimg mark on 0 on the degree marker. That should be TDC. Put the rotor button on the distributor and set it roughly at the 3 o'clock position and put it in. As it meshes with the cam gear it will turn and once fully seated should be at 5 o'clock. that is the position of #1 plug wire. If it's not at 5 o'clock pull it out and turn the rotor button slightly to catch a new tooth and reinsert. DO NOT force the distributor into position. Wiggle and push,turn the rotor slightly and it will go into place. Patience is the key here and make sure it is fully seated on the intake. Once it is in place the firing order is1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 and the distributor runs clockwise. Odd cylinder's are on the driver's side and even on the passenger's.
You may have to adjust the distributor a little one way or the other to get the engine to fire. That's normal. Once you get it running you can set the timing with your light. If you have no light then advance the distributor until it start's to sputter and do the same in ******. Then set your timing in the middle of that space, that will get you close. Hope this helps.

This is a well known issue with model years 2003 thru 2005. There is a chance GM will replace it under recall... Call the Chevy Customer Assistance Center 1-800-630-2438 to find out.
