Check the signal from the crank sensor. Hopefully you don't have the wrong flywheel or have installed it out of phase. If you don't get a proper signal from the cps, remove it and make sure you didn't damage it. Not starting in "N" may be caused by the neutral switch being out of position, but as long as it's cranking, I wouldn't worry about that yet.

Y is my 97 chevy only fires on the number one cylender


if you have fire on the number one cylinder,it means that the ignition coil is working so your problem can come from spark plug wire or cap and rotor . unplug the wire from ignition coil to distributor and check for fire you are suppose to have fire because you saying having fire on cylinder one. from there change cap of distributor and rotor plus a set a spark plug wire.

check for spark if you do not have spark and thie problem u are having now is the same as original problem it is most likely the ignition module also check to make sure distributer shaft / rotor turns while cranking also check rotor if it is burnt it can cause this also check for moisture under distributer cap if wet spray with brake clean and air dry

Changing the ignition might have interrupted the antitheft security system on your vehicle. (VATS) If you see a light on the dash that says SECURITY, this is a good indicator of this problem. This link explains the problem and offers solutions.

How to install 95 astro/safri v6 distribtor


You have to take the access panel off inside the van. There used to be two screws on the outside under the hood and the two clips inside that have to be released. Mine was older so I don't know if they are the same. Find the wire that is going to #1 spark plug. The is the spark plug at the very front of the drivers side. Mark the wire and its relationship to the cap someway. Mark all the other wires in the cap so you know their location when you put the new distributer in. Or leave them in the cap if you are going to use the same cap. Take the cap off and turn the engine over so the rotor is pointing directly to the #1 wire. It may not hurt to make some other point of reference, where the rotor is pointing to. Loosen up the bolt at the base of the distributer, blow all dirt away and turn and pull up slightly on distributer. Do not crank engine at any point during this time until the new distributer is in. Once you have it loose take the bolt out or at least slide the clamp all the way out of the way, Remove the distributer. Remove the base gasket for the distributer and clean the surface and put a new gasket on. Put the new distributer in paying close attention to where the rotor has to line up. The point of reference I told you to make earlier. You need to turn the rotor slightly CCW from the reference point as it will turn CW a little when it is mated into the cam gear and seating to the motor. If the distributer will not go in where you need it, it may be possible that the oil pump drive has moved a little. You may need to get a long screwdriver and go into the distributer hole and turn is slightly. After you get the distributer in, you should be able to put the cap back on. Or put all wires back on to the same positions that I told you to mark earlier. If you followed this closely then the engine should start. It should probably be timed. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

How do I set the distributor on a 2000 gmc jimmy? Just changed the intake gaskets, but forgot to mark the position of the rotor.


Get the number one piston up, Take the spark plug out the first one on the drivers side.Rotate the engine until the piston reaches TDC before it starts to decend back. U can use a screw driver to put in the spark plug hole.The rotor must point towards the number one spark plug. your local library will have this infor or autozone

83 regal not cranking


If you have replaced the distributer then the timing could be off. Did you set the distributer rotor in the same position when you took it out? If not then you will have to readjust it. But first try to loosen the hold down clamp and turn it very lightly at a time and try to crank. If it gets worse then go the other way very little at a time, and try. Be sure to tighten the clamp before each try.
