Go back and check the wires are in the correct order. You need fuel, spark and the spark at the correct time. You have two of three.

94 chevy s10 4.3 litre engine wont start. Its getting fuel and spark. pretty much everything is new. sometimes after a while i can get it to run. when it does i can drive it anywhere and its starts ri


might pull that cap again and see if the dist. shaft is loose
(side to side play) Sometimes the bushing wears out and the
magnet will hit the pickup,makes the spark irratic.Should have a new rotor with the cap,they also go bad.

My car won't start,seems like no spark?/,just turns over and over


before u replace the whole dist. have u first checked for fuel delivery on the carb or fuel rail, and then if u have that then check the spark plug wire by removing one while cranking by arcing to metal , if you see spark then dist is good if not then replace, but if dist is good and still no start then check coil pack and or all fuses

Stalling out at normal operating temp!


it sounds like the fuel pump is quitting once it gets warm. I've seen this plenty of times. When you turn the key to on, not all the way to start you should hear the fuel pump humm for a second or 2. When it quits on you try this to see if you get that humming. I bet the pump is dying, specially since everything else is new. Good luck and I hope this helps you.

have you put a new set of plug wires on it. use a spark plug tester, and put it between plug wire and dist, cap. if it is sparking you will see it. if yes and not to plugs put on new plug wires. good-day ! if above checks out. remove dist, cap and see if shaft of dist, is turning. some of the hondas have a plastic type drive gear on bottom of dist, shaft. that goes bad.

1/ Have you fitted the spark plug leads in the proper firing order.
2/ Look inside the top of distributor Top (this is not the first time a new distributer cap has very small crack) or the rotor arm is fitting the cap properly. Hope this helps Best Wishes, Malcolm Campbell.

I am trying to start my 1980 gm 350 in my boat. engine will turn and have new fuel and filters. Pulled off coil wire and got spark, grounded a spark plug to the manifold and got spark. What could it be?...


definitely a fuel issue. be sure to check that the distributor isnt 180 degrees off. you say it'll start when you pour some fuel into the carb, it sounds like you arent getting enough fuel then. try adjusting the float level higher so that more fuel will be pumped through. and how old is the carb? has it been rebuilt recently? make sure the jets are clean and adjusted properly. make sure none of the mixture screws are bottomed out. it sounds like it's all the quadrajet's fault on this one!

Will not start


Did you install the correct plugs, and did you check the gap? Also check all wires again to make sure nothing was pulled off, or loosened by accident.

1994 Chevy S10 4.3L sputters, revs, jerks terribly


take a look at the coil pack. its seperate from the distributor. you can follow the wire on the distributor cap that says coil to find it. even though it may appear ok it could still be going bad. that would cause static and a sputter condition. its a good starting point. also, fuel pump could be getting weak. but the coil and plug wires would be your best bet to start with
