Check the fuel pressure - you should have 45 - 50 psi of fuel pressure when you turn the key on - this is immediate. If it takes more than that or it takes awhile for the fuel pressure to come up you need a fuel pump.

What would cause a 97 chevy 1500 with a 4.3L not to have spark coming out of the distributor any ideas


Don't know if this will help you or not. But we found out with our 97 Silverado, that almost everything electrical went through the ignition switch. You might investigate an ignition problem.

My 97 grand cherokee cranks but wont start i got fuel pressure and i sprayed starting fluid and changed the cps and still wont start looking for any and all solutions


Did it act like it wanted to start when you did that? You say cps but truthfully that don\'t tell me if its crank or cam? It should have a real distributor and you should check fire from there. Look at and check cap, rotor, and wires and make sure they are on correct If you still have no fire then replace ign coil.... Now.. if it was tring to crank when you sprayed it then listen on how it cranks. If it turns over slow,fast or if it sounds retarded. If any of those occur then check timing and all its componets. Make sure the fire you checking is good spark.. blue or red or both just as long as its fire. If you\'ve replaced the coil and still no fire then prolly gone be a timing chain broken but most of the time engine will turn over a lot faster in this factor. If you\'ve check chain and its good, then a broken cam or crankshaft is obvious. Now... you can dig deep into the whole checking voltage and computer if you like... but my personal experience is this problem has never been PCM or ECM

My 97 Sebring died about a week ago and now it wont start. Found that the it was not firing. Changed the Distributor cap, rotor and distributor, along with the crank sensor. Placed new spark plugs in about...


Did you check the timing belt to see if it broke? It ha a 2.5 and it has belt. Remove timing cover at the front of the engine and have someone crank it while you watch the cam to see if it turns. If it doesn't turn, replace the belt.

Car wont start , replaced timing belt. all marks online.


If you changed the timing belt already, I would turn the crank back to the marks (TDC) then pop off your distributer cap look at the rotor it should be pointing at the spark wire to the No 1 cylinder, note : if it slipped off timing you could of damaged a valve...
to know if your cam is at tdc (you would have to pop off the valve cover) as you turn watch the valves there is one with a chamber to the exhaust manifold(header) that is the wrong one to watch....the one next to it should be lifting up or closing as you turn the crank to TDC (sealing the chamber) at the same time the distributor rotor should be pointing to that point under the cap...the cap is usually have small number underneath...

97 cavalier won't start when wet


That is your distributor cap. It either has a crack or isn't tight. The rubber seal could also be shot. Condensation from outside moisture builds up inside your cap while it sits. It wastes the spark on the water droplets instead of your contact points. Next time it happens, take the cap off and wipe it dry on the inside. Don't take the wires off. If your going to change it, label each wire starting at 1 mark. Hope this helps.
