Check the fuel filter,and you may have some bad fuel with water and contaminates in it.Use some additives called lucas fuel treatment and heet a good fuel dryer.

2000 chevrolet silverado 1500 4.3l v6 misses at 2000 rpm and now wont start


It sounds like u have a cam correlation problem... Take ur cap off mark where ur rotor is pointing on the dist. Mark the firewall where the dist plug is pointing take the 10mm bolt out n look @ the dist gear and see how bad it's worn!! When u take the cap off some times they're so bad when u move the rotor u can tell the excessive play hope this helps!!!!

1993 chevy suburban, engine has been popping and skipping now has stopped running at all, could it be the distributor cap and rotor button have gone bad ?


its possible it needs tune up but also check the timing. alot of chevy's spit and pop and when you shut them off and go to start later they wont, this is when the timing cam gear goes bad and out of time. turn crank to top dead center (TDC) on timing mark on front of engine cover or tab first, then remove dist cap and notice where the supply point of the rotor is facing. is it pointing to the # cylinder (very front of motor on the driver side)? Or is it aiming to the plug wire location on the dist cap that goes to the # 1 spark plug. ( the front plug on the driver side of motor )? If neither of these are in line then timing is out of wak. If it's all good then check plugs for old worn or burnt electrodes then check rotor with multi testor for current travel, then check cap for electrode failure and then check plug wires for current loss and burn. then perform a compression check on motor. (dry & wet)

There may be no injector pulse if the computor does not see a RPM signal.
There will be no spark if the ignition module does not see a dist pulse from the dist pickup.......a RPM signal.
Because you do not have both ......I would suggest to check/change the dist pick up.
Follow the wires from the ignition module inside the dist to the pickup which is also inside the dist.
If it is just a bad dist pickup....keep all your old parts as good spares.
Also...is the dist turning? to provide a RPM signal?
You will have to remove the dist to change the pick-up.....mark your timing locations......"rotor position" and "dist body location"before removal.
A quick test before installing the "repaired dist" .....plug it in the the truck wiring and turn on the key....DO NOT CRANK THE ENGINE OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR DIST ROTOR CORRECT POSITION......as you spin the dist by hand .....the injectors should spray.

Check your catalitic converter, you might start with an oxygen sensor first. your local muffler shop can do a temp check on the converter for you, but you can replace the oxgen sensor your self pretty easy.

Want to check pickup assem in dist.


Fouled spark plug? Bad wire? Rotor / cap new? Check those things out, wear a thick rubber glove, take the wire off the non working plug, put a screwdriver next to the wire (while car is running) and see if a spark is made. If it is, your plug is bad. If no spark, replace wires. Still no spark? Change your rotor and cap. Still no spark? Ignition module. Following those steps will save you some green.
