Sounds very sick. I would check the compression on all cylinders before buying any parts for it. Low compression or no compression is an internal mechanical problem and very serious. Is it a timing chain or belt? If a belt, check that it is not broken.

It could possibly be the starter, but before you get that far make sure the Battery cables are connected very tight. If loose the car won't start or do anything. Also make sure the battery cable is grounded.

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

The oil in the spark plug may cause the car to run sluggish. The oil may prevent the spark plug from firing correctly or cause you to burn oil. You may want to replace the oil seals around the spark plug holes by removing the valve cover and you should be able to change the oil seals underneath the cover. While at it check the engine for loose wire connections and loose vacuum hoses.

Sounds like major trouble. Tow it to a mechanic if you feel the car is worth spending money in. He will tell you in a second probably. what it is. Sounds like it's internal.

1999 chevy 1500 stalled at 70mph turns over and has fuel but no spark


if if the crank sensor has been replaced and still reads bad it could be a timing issue,maybe timing has slipped or maybe timing chain has broke.. remove oil cap and look down into valve pan while someone tries to start it. if rocker arms do not move then this would indicate timing chain or gears are broke.... hope this helps and good luck....please rate this post

if you have access to a scan tool check the pid data for the crank sensor and for the cam sensor. common for old crank sensors to fail when hot. if they do fail then it would cause no spark.

Crank w/ no start


I've never seen a timing chain break on these engines.What you may have is either a dirty connection at the crank sensor or the crank sensor is bad. The cranks sensor tells the fuel system and ignition to work in synch.
