Question about 1989 Chevrolet C2500

1 Answer

Can someone show me where the # 1 position is on a dist.cap for a 89 chevy 5.7 p/u ? It has the coil located between the cap and the carb. I changed the wires and was changing the cap and several wires fell off. I know, push them on harder the next time !! It starts but has loud knock, can't be good.

Hi I have a1988 chevy k1500 died changed coil dist wire from coil to dist have fuel no spark any ideas thanks


remove dist cap and rotor, under the rotor there is a control module (its about 1/4" tall, 1" wide, and 2-2 1/2" long) remove the module and take it to a parts store and have it tested. If its bad replace it and put dist back together and try starting it again. if thats not it then have coil check. Oh ya before you take anything apart disconect battery.

I need a wireing diagram of the sparckplugs for a 1999 chevy suburban


the firing order if it is a v-8 is :18436572
1357 on driver side bank 2468 on pass side
generally number 1 is the first position to the left of where the wires for the dist go into the cap..if that is not the case you can pull out the #1 plug and hold your finger over the plug hole have someone just click the starter when you feel compression pull off the dist cap and see where the rotor points that will be #1 (make sure you remove coil power wire at the cap before doing this so it wont start on you)
or you can pull #1 plug and stick a screwdriver in the hole and turn engine by hand untill piston is all the way up then pull off dist cap and see where rotor is pointing ,it will either be correct or 180 degrees out.....hope this helps

Have 67 Ford Mustang GTA 289V8. How do spark plug no. layout on engine left side is 1-3-5-7 and right side of engine is 2-4-6-8. Would that be correct and what is firing order?


The 67 289. Right (passenger) side, 1-2-3-4, left (drivers) side 5-6-7-8. Firing order, 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 cc. This should also be cast into the intake manifold in front of carb. Also, dist rotation is counter clockwise as your looking at motor from front, and #1 should be at approx 1 Oclock position. Most dist caps will have it marked.

Not getting fire to plug wires. I have replaced coil pack, module, dist pickup,and cap. I have tested and have fire to dist but nothing coming out. This is an 86 2.8 comanche 4x4 w/ 4 barrel Holley carb...


You have spark on the coil wire but not coming from the cap. You replaced the cap right. Did you replace the rotor too. Sometimes the rotor burn in the center and the spark goes right thru it in to the distributor shaft.

Hi my name is David =d_hubbs . Your Firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Clock wise Rotation. NOTE make sure you know where your #1 Wire starts at on the Distributor Cap. To know for sure Reove your Coil Wire so it won't Start --Remove #1 Spark Plug which is on the Drivers side Front Plug. Have someone Bump the Engine a Little at a Time Until You Either see pressure Rise on a Gauge or Just Put your Finger on The outside of the #1 Spark Hole ---When you feel AIR ==Compression out of that Cylinder. .Your at TDC on Compression Stroke. Just Remove Distributor Cap.Look a Rotors Position in your Cap Which ever Spark Plug Hole in your Dist,. Cap is Closet to is where you Start your #1 Plug Wire.Its Possible you went Slightly Past Number 1 ,If so Just move ALL plug Wires 1 Hole Back Counter Clock Wise.And you Should be Good To Go. Please Let me Know how my solution helped you by Voting For me and Leaving a Testamony. Thanks From:---d_hubbs

I changed my dist. cap on 1990 chevy p/u took one


Is the coil connected to the ditributor? did you knock any connections off in the process? Does it turn over but not fire? do you have spark at the plugs? Are you sure of cylinder location in respect to firing order? Did you-and check this first as with any elec. problems-blow a fuse in the ignition circuit? good luck!
