Question about 1997 Chevrolet K1500
here is what others got:
If you have a spark tester you disconnect the coil wire that goes to the distributor, install the spark tester on that wire, crank the engine and look for spark. If you do not have a spark tester you can hold the coil wire with insulated pliers near any engine ground.
Also check it directly at the coil to eliminate a possibly defective coil wire. If you have another coil you plug it in to use as a test coil. I the engine starts...the coil was the problem.
If this points to an ignition coil problem here is how to repair it.
1. Remove distributor cap and rotor.
2. Remove two module attaching screws, and lift module up.
3. Disconnect leads from module. Observe color code on leads as these cannot be interchanged.
4. Remove module.
NOTE: Be sure there is a sufficient amount of silicone grease on the metal face of the module and on the distributor base (where the module seats), when reinstalling the module. The purpose of the silicone grease is to cool the module.
1. Install module.
2. Connect leads to module.
3. Install module attaching screws.
4. Install pick up coil.
5. Install cap and rotor.
