Check the plug wires with a spark tester, to see if they all spark good. That will verify all of the parts you replaced. If they look good, do a compression test on cylinder five.

I have a 93 Chevy G20 VAN G20 with a 4.3L engine that has TBI my van starts and runs for a few days. Then it will not start after sitting for a day or two it starts again and runs fine. What could be the...


There are three relays all grouped together on the firewall on the passengers side. All three are related to your situated. We can eliminate one of them because you stated that the fuel pump is operating fine. Now that leaves the relay for the ECM(engine control module) this tells the injectors, cold start and run, when and how much fuel to supply and also controls ignition timing and spark advance. The third controls the AC compressor. Now I've got to remind you that I started working on fuel injection systems the day they started failing here in the US around 1972.These were such vehicles as Mercedes, Saab and Volvo. I've worked on every configuration, TBI, MPI, diesel etc.etc. I may on occasion cross one fact with another or mispronounce certain aspect of a system however, These three injectors are where you want to concentrate your efforts. With some finnesse you can swap the harnesses from one to another. If your car runs fine and your AC suddenly does not, then you know that that relay is faulty. Do this until you get your answer. Best of luck my friend, Dana

I just had the same problem. If it is a regular van try under the driver seat in a plastic box. If it is a conversion van try in a pannel just behind driver seat on side of van wall behind a pannel that looks like a vent.

Normally on chevy ignition modules when they go bad, they will quit when they get hot & after cooling down will work again, so when you have them tested they have cooled down. I would try changing it & see if it wont fix it.

Chevy van won't start


Check for spark and fuel. If you have spark make sure your fuel pump is working. If pump is working and no spark, check for spark off coil wire. If nothing there either, remove ignition module and take it to Napa and have them check it. Have them test it several times.
