You got a mess for sure.Bring the number one cylinder up on tdc,then pull the distributor out reinstall with the rotor pointing to the number on cylinder.You will have to go the your local library,most shops will not take food out of their families mouths any more times are hard. But you never know,If you ask nicely some shop will help you,try pepboys?

5.3 liter Chevy engine #1 Cylinder not firing at idle


My opinion...

Year? Miles?

There's no way I'd dive into a "HEAD GASKET"
diagnosis without pressure testing the cooling
system and (wet/dry) COMPRESSION testing
the whole engine...

Even if it is a "HEAD GASKET"... the entire engine
might be ready for a REFRESH... and tossing a new
Head gasket into a TIRED ENGINE not insubstantial
(a lot of wasted time & money)...

Come back with some compression numbers...

but don't bother with any of this if your engine oil has water in it.

(in my opinion)

I have a 2001 chevy silverado 4.3 liter and it wont start if its been raining and sits longer than 10 hours after i drive it after a couple days it will fire right back up and run perfectly fine ive tested...


Pull the o2 sensor out of the exhaust pipe if possible and see if the truck will start. If it starts and runs at all then you need to check the catalytic converter and muffler as one of them is blocked off inside and it most likely is the cat. When this happens it won't allow fuel to get to the engine cylinders and the truck to start. Hope this helps.
