You got it, just mark the rotor postion of the old dist and also mark the housing to the block and then install the new one the same way, the piont of the housing and the block marking is just to get it back in the same general area. the important part is the rotor alignment. sounds like you have it under control. have a good day.

Pull the distributor. Check the gear on the bottom of it. Replace a bunch of them for wear. Causes no power and bad timing. Depending on wear. Replace the gear or the distributor.

I own a 1999 GMC Jimmy that i recently had new plugs wires dist cap rotor camshaft sensor and crankshaft sensor.It seems the service engine soon light came on.When put on a diagnostic machine its telling...


The machine it talking about code P1345 CKP/CMP sensor correlition Do the engines RPMS fluctuate at idle or if you try to hold it at a steady speed if so then check the connection at the CKP make sure it is getting voltage its installed correctly and so on. If no problems are found then you need to check the distributor shaft remove the cap and see if the rotor turns on the dist shaft if it dose then thats the problem and eigther must be replaced or rebuilt thats the distributor it self

I have a 98 jimmy 4.3liter v-6. I have changed


Suspect the crankshaft/camshaft sensor may be bad which controls timing of both spark and injector firing. The check engine light should be on--rent a scanner, read any codes and pursue to repairs. Hope you installed the new distributor exactly as the old one.

1997 chevy c 10 truck wont start and back firing just put in new distributor It died this morning had to be towed home what is wrong ???


You should begin by static timing it. Mark #1 location at distributor on engine or something you can refer to later. Remove Dist. cap make sure the distributor rotor is rotating when engine cranks, If it does not the timing chain broke. If it rotates:
1. pull #1 plug, place thumb over plug hole and rotate balancer with socket wrench till it blows your finger off hole. This is #1 TDC compression stroke.
2. look at distributor rotor--it should be pointing at #1 location mark you made earlier if it is you have a spark issue.
3. If it is not pointing to #1 you remove Dist. hold down bolt under Dist. and carefully pull the dist. up while rotating rotor.
4. You will need to advance the dist. a few teeth past#1 (rotating Rotor) then re-install dist. if it doesn't line up to #1 keep repeating step 4 till it does. After you get it right you should be good to go. A timing gun will be needed after to clock in the timing after installing the distributor.
Good luck!!!

97 jimmy cam position sensor


It simple, remove the cap and rotor. You'll see the cam sensor, unplug the sensor and remove it. To install just do everything in revers and double check your work, this is also a good time to make sure the screen at the bottom of the distributor is clean. It's been known for the screen to get dirty allowing moister to accumulate in the distributor promoting corrosion. Good luck and hope this helps.
