Since you replaced the coil I would guess you have no spark?

If your getting fuel and no spark the first thing I would check or replace is the ignition module. It is located in the distributor. If you getting no spark and no fuel (no injector pulse) I would replace the ignition module and the pick-up coil. The pickup coil is the round piece under the rotor in the distributor that plugs into the module. The distributor needs to be removed (mark the base where it is held in place and the position of the rotor before removing so that it can be reinstall din exactly the same position!!) and disassembled in order to replace the pick-up coil.

1992 chevy astro van getting fire but not fuel stalled while driving replaced fuel pump when we pour gas into the intake the engine will fire but not getting gas


Did you change the filter? Can you hear the pump cut in for a few seconds when you first turn the key the "run" position? If you can'r hear it, you may want to check fuses and power wires to the pump.

I need a fire timing order for a chevy astro van v6


THE FIRING ORDER IS AS FOLLOWS : 1-6-5-4-3-2.
CYLINDER NUMBERS (front-to-rear) :
LEFT (driver side) 1-3-5
RIGHT (passenger side) 2-4-6

To set ignition timing, ensure that engine is at operating temperature, (190 degrees or above), bypass EST (electronic spark timing) by unplugging the single tan wire with a black stripe from the distributor. Ignition timing should be set at 0 degrees or TDC (top dead center). If not, loosen distributor hold down bolt and adjust, then retighten.

Engine turns over but will not fire


Probably a bad fuel pump. Known to fail from one turn of the key to the next.

Check to see if the fuel pump is kicking in,

It could be...
A clogged fuel filter...
Blown fuse for the pump..or bad pump relay..
No gas
Bad fuel pump

Try this! Turn key all on (but notrunning) for 30mins., turn off then back on for 10mins., turn off and then back on for 10mins. turn off and then try starting engine. sounds like security system burnt up. may have to replace it.
