when you turn the key do you hear a click (behind the firewall), but the starter would not do anything, then the problem is with battery. Sounds like you aren't pulling enough juice from the battery. Check the water level in the cells and do a load test.
Try replacing the starter also.
ifthat doesn't do it, check to ensure that you have a good ground on the firewall and check the connections to the solenoid.

2000 Chevy Blazer LS. Distributor is arcing and causing missfires. Plugs, wires, and distributor assembly replaced. Still arcs. Any deas

The distributor CAP is what is arcing. Non-AC Delco caps will do this. I chased my own "arcing" for months. Evidently there is a known problem with aftermarket caps arcing. I went through many caps until I learned of this. Swapped to AC Delco brand, solved all problems.

2000 S10 2.2l 2wd bucks and hops in low gears mainly then smothes out

Hmmm, sounds like the problem I just went through. Took me a while to figure it out. If your distributor cap isn't AC Delco OEM, this will happen sooner than later. Autozone caps are the WORST, won't last very long until you have internal arcing. By the way, other brands including Autozone seem to work fine, in OTHER vehicles for me. This engine needs to have AC Delco Plugs, Cap, and Rotor. After replacing with a new cap, does this problem disappear for a while, then come back? Also, make sure the cap is screwed down correctly, use a mirror for the back screw. And finally, double check that the PLASTIC screw tabs on the distributor are not broke off, causing your problem of not seating well or tight. If your are broken (VERY COMMON), only Napa makes a distributor repair kit. It's a metal arch, that attaches from the bottom of the distributor, then the screws in the cap thread into this. Hope this helps, it eluded me for months.

Check you starter, maybe you have a loose connection. Try to give direct power to the starter and see what's happening. I nothing happens, you have a bad starter.

2000 gmc truck spits and sputter when exceleratoring

what have you done so far ? tune it up ! replace air & fuel filters, spark plug wires & plugs, distributor cap , rotor , ignition module @ distributor, also replace theEGR valve , its garbage right now ! you will see when you take it off ! when replacing the ignition module, apply some silicone lubricant on the distributor base, under where the module is mounted, it will help to protect it from over-heating ! important ! check all VACUUM LINES, tighten throttlebody bolts to intake manifold ! changed your oil / filter lately ?

Is it hard to change distributor on 2000 nissan pathfinder

Hi there;This is for a 2000 Nissan Truck Pathfinder 4WD 3.3L SFI 6cyl

Distributor Cap & Rotor - Removal & Installation

The 1996-00 3.3L engines were equipped with a distributor.

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
If the distributor cap is to be replaced, mark the ignition wires for identification and remove them from the distributor cap.
Remove any components necessary to access the distributor cap.
Completely loosen the distributor cap mounting fasteners.
Carefully remove the distributor cap, taking care not to damage the cap seal or rotor, then position the cap aside.
If necessary, remove the rotor retainer.
Carefully lift the rotor off the distributor shaft.
Inspect the distributor cap to housing seal for damage and/or cracks. Replace if cracks are detected.

To install:

Install the rotor onto the distributor shaft and tighten the rotor mounting fastener, if equipped.
Position the distributor cap seal on the distributor housing, then position the distributor cap on the housing.
Install the distributor cap by tightening the mounting fasteners in a crisscross pattern. Use care to not over-tighten the fasteners.
Reconnect the spark plug wires, making sure to install them exactly in the same position from which they were removed.
Reconnect the negative battery cable.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

How to install cap and rotor on a 2000 chevy blazer 4.3ltre v-6

Disconnect the wires and take pictures with cell phone for reference to ensure you don't cross them when reinstalling the new distributor cap. Remove the two torque screws in the distributor cap and remove the distributor cap to access the rotor. Remove the rotor by lifting straight up and inspect the distributor for any condensation and corrosion. Clean the breather screen at the bottom of the distributor before installing the new rotor which just slides back in place. Install the new distributor cap and tighten the new torque screws, make sure you do not over torque the screws since the distributor housing is plastic and prone to stripping. Reattach the spark plug wires and start the engine and idle for 5 min and go for a test drive. Good luck and you may want to also buy spark plug boot lubricant to ensure the spark plug wires are fully installed when placed back on the new distributor cap and recheck connections after test drive. Keep me posted, be glad to know your blazer is running 100% and please rate.
