Question about 1992 Chevrolet Astro Extended

2 Answers

Engine died multiple times until no longer starting

1992 chevy astro died while driving. It would restart with hesitation, and now it won't start. Turning the ignition will cause the starter to make the ussuall sound of trying to crank over the engine, with no luck. fuel pump? other engine parts linked between ignition and the engine turning over?    Thank you very much for your response.  Dean

I'm assuming you have a 4.3 liter? First, you need to know what is missing, spark or fuel when it won't start. When it gets to the no start mode, that is when you need to put a spark tester on one of your wires and have someone crank it over while you watch for spark. If it's throttle body injection, look down the body (Where the carb is) to see if you have a fuel spray while cranking. It is a little hard to see. Also used here is a noid light to see if your injectors are getting the "spray" signal to turn on. You see that some tools are needed. If it's injected, every cylinder has it's own injector, and you can only use a noid light. To see fuel here, you hook up a pressure guage to the schrader port on the fuel rail. See if you have a fuel pump sound when you first turn on the key.
Spark could also be a module or hall effect switch in your distributor.
This is why you need to see what is missing, or goes away first.

93 chevy lumina runs rough dies and won't start after it warms up

Back firing is usually an indication of a timing issue

The timing chain is most likely worn & jumped a couple

On mine I had a control modular next to the coil that was bad and didn't show up on diagnostic. The guys at Auto Zone told me to pull it and they could test it and on the 7th test it failed. Unfortunately my van still died on my way into town after this, but at least I had spark this time unlike in the past.

Engine won't start, just clicks then eventually starts. 1992 chevy astro

Have entire starting and charging systems inspected and tested. Many components can cause these symptoms, poor cables (corroded), poor connections to battery (corroded), weak battery (old), tired starter. Alternator will not charge the battery properly if connections or cables are in poor shape.
good luck

Frequently will crank but not start

the problem must be with the batteries. check the voltage levels of the battery using a voltmeter. if it goes lower that 10v and fast dying, then replace them. and also check the alternator charging the battery for any charging problem.
