Sounds like it is either a bad coil pack, cam position sensor or crank position sensor. The coil pack delivers the spark to the plugs and the 2 sensors tell the computer when to tell the coil pack to spark.

DO'ES THE VAN TURN OVER ? DO'ES THE VAN HAVE THE FUEL PUMP RUN LONG ENOUGH TO BUILD FUEL PRESSURE?IF YOUR FUEL PUMP AND STARTER ARE WORKING THEN CHECK FOR FIRE TO THE PLUGS. YOU MAY NEED TO GET THE CODES READ TO FIND THE PROBLEM IF YOU HAVE FUEL AND FIRE.ONCE YOU GET THE STORED CODES,REPLACE THE SENDER THAT CAUSED THE CODE OR REPAIR THE WIREING TO IT.

Best way to replace driver side spark plugs 2000 gmc safari????


The easiest way to replace the spark plugs on Chevrolet and GMC vans and some trucks is jacking up the front of the van behind the wheels you will see a rubber flap on between the frame and the body of the van lift it up and you will see your spark plugs use a long socket extension at least two feet long the longer the better and a flexible spark plug socket you will be able to turn your ratchet freely and get done fast. if your having hard time finding a long extension you can plug several short extensions together. NOTE: all ways star the spark plugs by hand or if you having troubles to get your fingers there use a piece of 3/8 rubber hose will help you to get the spark plug started then you just pull the hose off. if you star from the beginning using your socket you may put it crooked and strip the treat.

Gmc safari van cranks over, but will not fire up or start.Have tried starter fluid and still no start. Has plenty of crank,but no start


I had the same problem with my 2000 GMC Safari two years ago....drove me CRAZY!

Sometimes it would start right up...other times it just would crank and not start.

It turned out to be a cracked coil....I found it by using a spray bottle with water in it, and "misting" the engine, at night....with the engine running. (On a night when it DID start!)

It took a while, but finally the hairline crack let in some water and the electrical short showed by a spark coming out of the coil.

I replaced the coil with a new one, and it has never "not started" since.

Evidently the coil cover gets brittle and develops small, hairline cracks due to heat from the engine.

Oh...by the way....I tested the coil it showed that it was fine!....but it took the "misting" at night...in the dark...to find the spark "leaking" out.

I need some explanation on the firing order on the spark plugs and how to properly install them. Because my husband changed them out and now the van starts but won't turn over and go!


Hi,

To my knowledge the firing order is 1 6 5 4 3 2.

Perhaps this may be of help for a 2002 GMC Safari Van 2WD 4.3 liter V-6 VIN "W
