Question about 1989 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer


One morning I was driving the truck without noticing that Spark Plug Wire # 3 is cut in half. I still drove it back & forth a total of 25 miles & when I stop to a gas station to fill up some gas; when I am ready to go, it doesn't start anymore; it only does the crank & seems like no gas pumping up to the fue injector. Any one can help if this is a problem which is out of timing since that I was driving 5 cylinder only.

Please help.

My 1990 chevy cheyenne pickup will turn over but wont start, it has a 4.3 liter v6.

Have you sprayed just a "touch" of starting fluid in the air ram, that takes the air to the throttle body. If you do that & it fires, you have a fuel delivery problem. If that fails, do you have spark?? That can easily be checked, by placing the "inductive arm"over any plug wire, attach to the battery & crank. DON'T worry about timeing, YET. If when the engine cranks, trigger pulled on the timing light & hthe light "flickers", your getting spark. The only thing left then, would be that you could have thrown a timing chain. Removing the oil fill cap, see if using a narrow light, if you can see a rocker arm/ Then have an assistant crank the motor, & see if they move. If that is in accessable, remove a valve cover, lay a towel, cloth over the top of the rockers that contact the push rods, (unless you like an oil bath,,,ha,ha) . But, seriously, then have an assistant crank the motor, NO MOTION= Thrown timing chain.
