Question about 1989 Chevrolet C/K 3500
Make sure that you're getting spark. A very common thing on these engines are coils going bad. If you can verify spark, check to make sure you have an injector pulse. As you rotate the engine, look inside of the throttle body and make sure that you see fuel pulsing into the engine. You can still have good pressure but you don't have an injector pulse, the fuel still cant get into the engine. You can use a test light as well to test for an injector pulse. One wire going to the injector will have constant power and the other will blink when the engie is rolled over. Does it start if you spray starting fluid into the throttle body? If it does, it's a fuel delivery problem. Again be sure you have spark from coil to distributor and plugs. You can remove the ignition module and take it to NAPA and they have a module tester. Have them test the module several times not just once. This will eliminate the possibilites of an intermitted problem. Let me know how it does. firstname.lastname@example.org
