My 98;jimmy will not start engine turns but will not turn on


check for spark at the plugs then check for fuel. if one of these are missing the car won`t start. common problem on some of these was the ignition module in the distributor and sometimes the pickup coil wires would break. another thing to check is the distributor cap and rotor for damage like a cracked cap or burnt through rotor. fuel pump were also common.

Engine cranks for a long time before starting


When my 98 Jimmy did that it turned out to be a bad ignition coil and worn distributor gear. Replaced both and now it starts right up as soon as you turn the key.

How do set the timing for the balance shaft for distributor with the camshaft timing gear on a 1996 Jimmy 4.3 Vortex 4X4 ?


Pull number one plug out, put your finger over the cyclinder hole, have someone bump motor over untill the pistion pushes air out..now the crankshaft should be close too O. Put distributor in and point rotor to number one plug...

I have a 98 jimmy 4.3liter v-6. I have changed


Suspect the crankshaft/camshaft sensor may be bad which controls timing of both spark and injector firing. The check engine light should be on--rent a scanner, read any codes and pursue to repairs. Hope you installed the new distributor exactly as the old one.

Set timing 1997 jimmy


Ok that's pretty simple Put cylinder # 1 on TDC= top dead center on the (compressionstroke piston all the way up). Mark on metal part of distributor (with marker) where the number one is on the cap( that's where the number 1 wire plugs in) Then in-plant distributor make sure that rotor point is pointed to #1 on the cap, turn distributor shaft until this is achieved or as close as possible try to center shaft so you can adjust... ****** or advance to fine tune after you in-plant distributor if needed. Contact if you need more help . Good Luck
