Make sure the new cap is identical to the last one. if so then it'll be that you've got the plug leads hooked up wrong. also try checking inside of cap as some have which sparkplug lead is meant to go where on the cap.
also the number one cylinder is always the one closest to the front of the car. if it's a v-configuration though you'll have to find out which of the 2 is the number one plug.

The car doesnt start, its not the carburator or the fuel pump. i think it might be the distibutor cap but im not sure.


Get you a spark tester at the part store and hook it to a plug wire and see if it is getting a spark there about 8$ or you could stick a screwdriver in the plug and lay it down somewhere so it dont shock you and let someone crank it over and see if there is a spark or lol you could do like me and hold the plug wire while someone cranks it for just a sec. it will shock you though.If it is firing.if no fire could be your coil to

New spark plugs, new spark plug wires, new distibutor, new distibutor cap, new coil, new coil wire still not getting any spark why?


I know you list a new distributor, but the pick up coil (inside the distributor) is what will trigger the coil for spark. Located under the rotor, it needs to be checked at the harness for voltage (key on) and measure resistance in the PU coil itself using an ohm meter. Check the harness for breaks or damage, there really is nothing else that might cause this unless you have a complete failure in your engine computer (located next to the battery).

I have a Chevy 2500 pick up truck. My son thought he'd replace the spark plugs. He removed the distributor cap, didn't understand it and now the truck won't start. He did not replace any spark...


firing order for 5.7 v8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 mostly all of the chevy v8s are the same firing order. the rotor button in distributer turns clockwise, the cylinder numbers are 1-3-5-7 on drivers side, 2-4-6-8 is on passengers side. To get started get your distrutor cap[new one] look on the top you will see a #1that's where you begin you must know if if rotates clockwise or counter clockwise start in that direction then follow the firing order and cylinder line up. good-day!! if cap is not marked, just pull out #1 plug, put a straw or similar in plug hole on top of piston. turn engine over by crank in front of vehicle with a wrench, when the piston comes to the very top just before it starts going down. this is tdc. and rotor button should be pointing to #1 wire on dist, cap. follow from there. good-day !!

Firing order on distubutor cap where does it start


take #1 spark plug out and bring the piston up to the top of the compression stroke (turn the engine over with your finger over the hole, when pressure in present, that is compression stroke) remove the distibutor cap and note where the rotor is pointed, that will be #1 plug, you have a chevy so the plugs wires go on the distributor clock wise, usaully it's pointing at the #1 cylinder

Inside or directly under the distribitor cap is a plastic ring with either one or two wires attached..... these devices fail and not allow the engine to start.
It happened on my 88 chevy (305 cu in.). a quick fix is to replace it with a new one.. (Advance Auto) or other parts store.

On a 88 bronco i can not get spark but have 12volts getting to coil, replaced.. coil/cap and rotor/and ignition module


You will need to change the pick up coil that is located in the distibutor. if you have never done something like this you would be better off to let a garage do it, reason you have to pull the distributor out of the engine.
