Question about 1997 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

I changed coil on 1997 c1500. Truck crank right up and drove for a half mile and fell dead. I crank truck back up and drove it for about 3 miles and it fell dead again. Engine rotates but no fire coming from coil. Test light indicate fire is coming to coil and distributor. What could be the problem?

It is very unlikely that the ignition coil was ever the cause of this problem. The ignition system in this year is controlled by a computer called the "PCM" when the PCM detects a failure like the stall out you have it will set a fault code in its memory for the circuit that has the problem. So what do you need to do now? You must have the codes read, the diagnostic connector is under the dash in front of the driver, you will need a OBD2 fault code reader to access the fault code(s). You can either borrow or buy a code reader from any Auto parts store.

You need to do an OBD2 engine control module fault code test to see if the fault is recorded in the memory of the computer control module. Autozone and others do this testing for free.

Change your fuel filter, it may have gone it's life time and is getting to dirty to let fuel flow properly. Your fuel pump to may be getting weak, if the fuel filter is dirty the pump works harder and heats up and could be over heating the fuel pump relay too. The fuel pump relay i believe is in the glove box behind a panel that say relay, there should be (3) in there and the middle one is the fuel pump's. switch then around after you change the fuel filter and if you get a chance, check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Good luck and hope this help's if there is a Auto Zone around you, you can ask to use the fuel pressure gauge to see what fuel pressure you have and they'll have the step by step instructions on how to do it and takes about 5 min to do and will have the fuel filter and step by step to replace that too. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
