Have 95 chev caprice classic, engine running rough, replaced spark plugs and wires, it is getting good fire but the problem with rough running is worse. does this car have a distributor cap and rotor button and could this be the problem? it won't climb a hill and when i acelerate it acts like it just won't go, having trouble getting anyone to look at it so guess i will have to learn more and attempt to do it myself and need help!!

THE DISTRIBUTOR IS MOUNTED BEHIND THE WATERPUMP. BUT FIRST THING FIRST! MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE THE WIRES ROUTED CORRECTLY, INCORRECT ROUTING ALONE WILL CAUSE HESITATION WITH ACCELERATION!

Not sure what engine you have in your car? If you have the V8 then I think you should have a cap and rotor. If so change them. The V6 may just have a coil pack. Just follow your wire from the plug and the other end either goes to a cap or a coil pack. Did you replace your fuel filer? If not then do so and if that doesn't help I would perform a fuel pressure test to make sure the fuel pump is working at the proper pressure.

Think the oil pressure switch keeps the fuel pump running once started. Suggest replacing Oil pressure switch. And no it won't effect oil pressure reading when it goes bad. The switch is a safety device. When you roll it over and the oil pressure drops the switch cuts off the fuel pump. Neat huh? Need some good feedback Thanks!

Change your spark plugs and wires. Also clean out your MAF and Throttlebody also while your at it change out your EGR and EGR selenoid. They are known to fail.
After you changed and flushed out your coolant make sure you BLEED the air out of the system.

Have you changed the plugs, if any are fouled out or if any are worn, it takes more to fire it under load and may be spark knocking because one of the plugs can't fire off all the gas and cause it to skip or idle rough.

Caprice 5.0 won't start but turns almost over


you need three things, fuel, air, and spark. the fuel and air should be ok. Let's check the timing. Oh. are you sutre the firing order is right with the wires? Ok, they are,right? Now set the timing marks on front of engine to match up at 4 degrees after you bring #1 piston to top dead center.on compression stroke.you can tell when its on compression stroke by removing spark plug and bumping the starter untill the piece of tissue you put in the plug hole blows out.then once the timing marks are lined up,check what wire the rotor is pointing at. If its close to #1, turn distributor slowly either way untill you hear a spark jump or pop. Lay #1 plug wireon the engine with the spark plug stuck in it. When the spark pops, the plug will fire at the timing mark setting. put plug back in, minus the tissue, put the wire back on and sng doe your distributor. the firing order is casted on the intakke manifold. Like 18436572. Going around top of dis cap start at the wire you know is #1.and in the direction the distributor turns make sure wires are in that order on your manifold.don't forget to secure the distributor cap..I this distributor has points the dwell/gap will have to be set while running with an allen wrench and dwell meter.at32 degrees. No points,no ptoblem. no setting. button it all up and look around for loose anythings, especially tools on top of radiator and light it it up. Final timing should be set with a timimg light. Any problems , I'll be on the puter bot noon o clock my time. Good Luck.
