Question about 1997 GMC Safari
A couple of days ago as I was driving down Highway i hit a lil hump coming off a bridge and the Van stalled...i checked gas up to my pressure relief and it was good...I checked spark on distributor plugs and coils and it was good..battery good...So I eneded up leaving it there until next day and when I got back to my van, It started right up. I parked it for a while and went back to drive it and it wouldn't start. So thats been the procedure since the first day it stalled. HELP!
Safari's tend to have problems with the rotor button on the distributer. Your's may be going bad. At first the van will stall as you described, due to a jarring of the motor, ie: a bump. etc., and then it will restart.
After a while the rotor button will fail completely.
I have had this same problem with two safar's and this is the solution that I have found.
