If you mean just a spinning noise you'll need a new starter but clean the battery connections first with a steel brush. poor or loose connection cause the intermittent problem with click,click crank.

Old school!

Check the points for being clean and flat. One side has a trough and the other side has a spike. Clean them so they are flat. Check the points gap with feeler gauges. Check you have power at the ignition coil. With power to the coil, when you disconnect the earth, you should get a spark at the plug. Check the plug gap about 25 thou. Check the rotor inside the distributor cap, it may be missing and you need one. The brass outer contact can be cleaned on the wall of the tyres (those were the days). Also check that the spring loaded contact in the CENTRE of the distributor cap goes up and down. Finally check that the distributor cap doesn't have any cracks. Watch the cap and leads in the dark whilst cranking and looks for sparks tracking to earth. Good luck. Let us know how you get on by making COMMENT under my name.

I got no spark won't start. 93 1500 Chevy truck 4.3 motor


How long since a tune-up?
Check for applicable trouble codes, if there are any? Your obd 1, you should be able to check for some codes, if the mil still works.
Check primary voltage at the coil, pink wire, key on. Use a test light to check for voltage.
The spark plugs--plug wires--dist cap and rotor all good? Does the rotor turn when you crank it? If you take coil wire loose from distributor cap and hold close to engine ground, have helper crank it, do you see a spark jump? I don't know what testing you have done?
With bypass ignition it's the ignition module that controls spark during cranking. With the coil itself, key on, should be voltage on both sides, if only one side, the coil is faulty. The ground for the coil should pulse, with engine cranking. I'm sure I've left something out? You need to do some testing.

Why won't 89 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.7 STILL not start. New battery,coil,spark plugs,wires,inline filter,distributor,cap,rotor,fuel pump,starter relay.


What's missing ? Fuel ,spark , compression ? How many miles on the vehicle ? Does it have spark , pull a plug wire while cranking an hold it near a good ground . Put a fuel pressure gauge on the vehicle , is there fuel pressure ? Do a compression test , 150 psi . engine mechanical problem . timing chain .

1996 chevy silverado v8 4.3 won't crank. Replaced


Check the voltage coming from the battery and check it again at the coil.I suspect you are not getting the proper voltage going through. Clean all the terminal ends to bare shiny metal and make sure all the connections are tight. If I remember correct your truck still has the HEI setup with the coil in the top of the distributor cap. If all the voltages are good, 12+ volts you should replace the coil. Hope this helps.

On a 1992 chevy 1500- 350 engine, I can not get this thing to get a spark- i have replaced the plugs and wire, distributor cap and rotor, but you still don't even get a spark, it's getting fuel... Please...


Hi, Hope I can help you.
I do not know how you have checked for spark, but lets start from the beginning.
Lets start with an ignition systems check.
1. I want you to remove the high voltage coil wire. ( That's the wire in the center of the distributor cap.) Using a good pair of insulated pliers. I want you to hold it about 1/4 inch from a good engine ground. Now you will need a bit of help from a partner. Get them to turn the key and crank the engine. You should see a bright blue and well defined spark. Ok, If you have spark I want you to slowly move the coil wire away from the engine ground. As you do this I want you to pay attention to the coil tower. (The coil tower is where the other end of the coil wire is attached.) What your looking for is arcing and sparking at the coil tower. If this happens then you need to replace the coil with a new one. If this does not happen then your coil is working fine, and we will have to move on.
Note if you do not get spark from the coil wire replace the coil.

2. Ok if you have spark now we have find out if the spark is making it to the spark plugs. How are we going to do this? By checking the rotor, distributor cap, spark plug wires and spark plugs.First lets remove the distributor cap. This will allow use to inspected the rotor and the distributor cap. What your looking for is, cracks, carbon tracks and wear at the tip of the rotor. On the distributor ,look inside the cap for cracks, carbon tracks and wear on the terminals. If you find any of this replace the distributor cap and rotor. ( Note if you have any doubt of the condition of the rotor or the cap replace them.) Next lets check your spark plug wires. Lets pull off one of the spark plug wires from the spark plug side. Now inspect the wire connection for a white crusty powder. If you find crust replace your wires. Now you should check all of them the same way, but if even one has corrosion replace them all. You are going to have to inspect the wire its self . Going down the whole length of the wire. Holes cracks burn Marks and other damage. Once again if you find any damage replace them all.
I hope this will help you and good luck to all the read this FixYa
leave feedback thank you

Not much else it could be you have renewed just about everything. How about the coil sets? How healthy do the sparks look? try swapping some the faulty cylinder coils around with those that are good and noting the shift in misfires. The coils get hot and suffer over time. I think if you examine the sparks from each plug in turn you will see big differences from good to poor. For safety disconnect the fuel pump relay when checking the spark we don't want any fires.
