OK, you repaced the rotor it can only go on one way so that must be right. Did it look exactly like the old one? In the center of the new cap was ther a carbon or metal contact? Did you replace the wires one at a time. Number 1 wire must be in number 1 position on the cap. It's more than just being in the correct order, they must be in the correct position on the cap. Watch the rotor rotate when the engine is cranked. Was it Clockwise or CCW? Is the wire order in the same direction as the rotor rotation? Are you getting anything from the engine? Backfire, runs but rough, doesn't run at all? Any spark? Which engine is this again? Now many miles?

    did you line your rotor up on number one cylinder? If not that's were i would start. If it is not on top dead center and the rotations of the rotor do not correspond then it won't fire and run correctly. Here's my e-mail if you need anymore help bigwheels4now@yahoo.com

Since you have replaced most of the engine parts I would check you are getting a spark at plugs first and then fuel from pump! I think these are the most probable reasons for not starting!

HOW TO SET AN ROTER FOR AN 92 CADILIAC DEVILLE


standing passenger side vechicle with crankshaft pulley facing your.number one sparkplug location should be at twelve Oclock position.you need to know cylinders locations front cylinders left to right is 1 3 5 7 and back cylinders left to right is 2 4 6 8 and firing order is 1 8 4 3 6 5 7 2 your ignition timing need to be 10 degrees BTDC AT 800 RPM. YOU SET TIMING YOU NEED TO DISABLE SPARK ADVANCE BY CONNECTING JUMP WIRE OR PAPER CLIP STRECTCH AND BEND YOU NEED TO CONNECT JUMPER WIRE TO A AND B DLC TERMINALS. if ignition timing way off you wont get no spark.but check ignition fuse and make sure distributor cap and rotor good shape also spark plugs and wires.if all is good your ignition module or ignition coil bad.the 4.9 can be time if you have 4.6 engine cant adjust ignition timing PCM control timing.code scan vechicle first before buying new parts.look for ignition module or pcm fault codes.look for faulty crankshaft sensor or camshaft sensor.many things will cause no spark conditions.

I just replaced the timing chain set on this 02 Durango with 4.7. Now it is hard starting, jerks under load and sets codes 340 and 344. I didn't touch the cam sensor during the replacement. I know the...


You must have your distributor out one tooth. Or else the chain is out one tooth. When you aim a timing light at the mark, if the mark is jumping around, your chain is wrong.
If neither of those, then check your firing order, and make sure all the plug wires are on firmly, and are not damaged.

How do i set timing on 1998 chevy truck 350 vortec


number 1 plug wire should be pointing towards the front drivers corner . drivers side piston order is 1-3-5-7 front to back .passengers side front to back is 2-4-6-8 then the firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 . if you pull the # 1 spark plug and put your finger in the hole /remover power wire while doing this at the dist.bump the engine when you feel a rush of air that's the compression stroke when the piston is at the top of it's compression stroke . pop the cap look to make sure the rotor is pointing at the # 1 piston roughly and place cap back on so the # 1 terminal is over the wire end of the rotor contact tip and work clockwise around with the firing order and hope this helps .if it still dont want to run then you may have jumped timing chain or stretched they will jump out of time and cause a headache.

Caprice 5.0 won't start but turns almost over


you need three things, fuel, air, and spark. the fuel and air should be ok. Let's check the timing. Oh. are you sutre the firing order is right with the wires? Ok, they are,right? Now set the timing marks on front of engine to match up at 4 degrees after you bring #1 piston to top dead center.on compression stroke.you can tell when its on compression stroke by removing spark plug and bumping the starter untill the piece of tissue you put in the plug hole blows out.then once the timing marks are lined up,check what wire the rotor is pointing at. If its close to #1, turn distributor slowly either way untill you hear a spark jump or pop. Lay #1 plug wireon the engine with the spark plug stuck in it. When the spark pops, the plug will fire at the timing mark setting. put plug back in, minus the tissue, put the wire back on and sng doe your distributor. the firing order is casted on the intakke manifold. Like 18436572. Going around top of dis cap start at the wire you know is #1.and in the direction the distributor turns make sure wires are in that order on your manifold.don't forget to secure the distributor cap..I this distributor has points the dwell/gap will have to be set while running with an allen wrench and dwell meter.at32 degrees. No points,no ptoblem. no setting. button it all up and look around for loose anythings, especially tools on top of radiator and light it it up. Final timing should be set with a timimg light. Any problems , I'll be on the puter bot noon o clock my time. Good Luck.
