1985 GMC k2500 with a distributor cap where is the ignition coil located.


It should be located in the top of the distributor cap.

Hopefully this will give you an idea as to what the cap looks like WITHOUT the coil installed.

Hope this helps.

REMOVE DISTRIBUTOR FOR A 1996 GMC JIMMY


Check this procedure...
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If necessary, remove the air cleaner.
  3. Tag and remove the spark plug wires and the coil leads from the distributor.
  4. Unplug the electrical connector at the base of the distributor.
  5. Loosen the distributor cap fasteners and remove the cap.
  6. Using a marker, matchmark the rotor-to-housing and housing-to-engine block positions so that they can be matched during installation.
  7. Loosen and remove the distributor hold-down bolt.
  8. Remove the distributor from the engine.

INSTALLATION
Engine Not Disturbed
  1. Install the distributor in the engine making sure that the matchmarks are properly aligned.
  2. Install the hold-down bolt and tighten the bolt to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  3. Install the distributor cap and attach the electrical connector at the base of the distributor.
  4. Install the spark plug wires and coil leads.
  5. If removed, install the air cleaner assembly.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.
Engine Disturbed
(see Figure)
  1. Remove the No. 1 cylinder spark plug. Turn the engine using a socket wrench on the large bolt on the front of the crankshaft pulley. Place a finger near the No. 1 spark plug hole and turn the crankshaft until the piston reaches Top Dead Center (TDC). As the engine approaches TDC, you will feel air being expelled by the No. 1 cylinder. If the position is not being met, turn the engine another full turn (360 degree). Once the engine's position is correct, install the spark plug.
  2. Using a long screwdriver, align the oil pump drive shaft in the engine in the mating drive tab in the distributor.
  3. Install the distributor in the engine.
  4. Install the distributor in the engine making sure that the matchmarks are properly aligned.
  5. Install the hold-down bolt and tighten the bolt to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  6. Install the distributor cap and attach the electrical connector at the base of the distributor.
  7. Install the spark plug wires and coil leads.
  8. If removed, install the air cleaner assembly.
  9. Connect the negative battery cable.

Como cambiar distribuidor gmc safari 2001


Remove the distributor cap. Mark the location where the rotor is pointing by making a scratch mark on the distributor housing. Remove the distributor adjusting bolt and bracket. Remove the distributor. Replace with the new distributor by placing the rotor on the shaft and turning the shaft until the rotor aligns with the same place as the mark on the old one. Install the bolt and tighten. Start engine. If your engine does not run, remove the bolt and distributor and turn it 180 degrees and replace.

I need to know the timing marks for installing the timing chain and in 1992 GMC sonoma st in the firing order on the distributor and the engine block.


I highly recommend you get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle. The Haynes Manual has photo references that show the alignment as well as a diagram of the firing order on the Distributor. Typically the #1 is marked on the the Distributor cap and they are sequential clockwise after that. The Firing order is actually controlled by the order you connect the wires to the Distributor.

Installed new crate engine 1997 5.7 vortec, how do you adjust the timing? 1997 GMC Serria 4x4 1500


The ignition timing is not adjusted with a timing light or with the engine running, and to set the ignition timing follow these proceedures.

There is a mark or notch on the distributor housing that the rotor should be pointing to when the engine is on top dead center. This "static" timing is all that matters and the computer will be able to control the timing as long as the ignition rotor is in that position when the engine is at top dead center.

1. Place the engine at top dead center.

2. Look under the distributor cap and find where the number one terminal runs under the distributor cap, and where that position on the distributor cap corresponds with the distributor housing, and it should match up to a mark or a notch on the distributor housing indicating the number one position.

3. With the engine on top dead center the ignition rotor should be pointing to the number one mark or notch that is on the distributor housing, if it is not then loosen up the distributor and turn the distributor until the ignition rotor is pointing to the mark or notch on the distributor housing and then tighten down the distributor, the engine should now be static timed.

If the distributor can not be turned enough to align the ignition rotor with the number one mark on the distributor housing, or the distributor does not set properly and will not allow the installation of the spark plug wires then the distributor is not installed correctly and is most likely a tooth off and it will need to be re-installed correctly. (The distributor should set like it is shown in the firing order diagram when it is properly installed)

Here is a firing order diagram to also help assist you.

Where is camshaft position sensor located


Camshaft position sensor also know as Distributor Pick-up assembly sits in the distributor, distributor will have to come out to install sensor, make sure you mark the distributor rotor before you remove distributor assembly so you can install it back at the same position it came out or the engine will not start due to out of timing.Good luck hope this was very helpful.

Firing order for a 1986 gmc s15


FIRING ORDERS

To avoid confusion, ALWAYS replace spark plug wires one at a time.

The most important thing to remember about the removal and installation of a distributor, cap or spark plug cable is that all wires MUST be labelled before they are disconnected. Keep in mind that these figures depict a firing order where the distributor cap terminals are relative to EACH OTHER only and they do not necessarily depict the tower positions in relation to the rest of the engine. This is true because any distributor which has been removed and reinstalled may have been installed with the No. 1 spark plug tower at any position (360 degrees) in relation to the rest of the motor, as long as the rotor aligned to the No. 1 tower when the No. 1 cylinder was at TDC of the compression stroke (valves closed, ready for the plug to fire). As long as the remaining wires were connected in the correct firing order sequence (depending on direction of distributor rotation) the engine will run. DO NOT EVER remove more than one wire from the distributor cap at a time unless you tag ALL wires and towers to assure proper installation.
