If you have spark & fuel it should fire. Do you have the wrong fuel? (diesel?)

I just installed a throttle body spacer to my 1990 chevy silverado 350 motor tbi and my truck wont turn on after i put it on whys is that??

Does the engine turn over when you try to start it? Make sure that there is spark by removing a plug then attach the pug to the plug wire and touch it to a good ground. Now turn the engine over and see if you have spark. If you have spark now check to see if there is fuel going into the intake through the throttle body. If no fuel try to pour a little down the throttle body opening and see it it fires. You have a spark or fuel problem for sure. Did you happen to bump the distributor when you were working on it? I hope this helps

Troubleshoot my engine

First remove one or more spark plug and check if they fire during cranking ( Replace therefore the plug in the plug cap and place the metallic side of the plug against the engine-block and crank.)
If NO spark check:
- Deadman knob-is the puller installed?
- Unplug the wiring to remote-control and check spark with manual start. If you have sparks: Problem with contact key/remote control circuit ( check for worn cable, bad RPM counter )
Still no sparks: Check CDI-box
If the plugs are WET: dry them with air, or better replace them!

If you have sparks: Check if fuel come to the carbs. Therefore, unscrew the drain plug ofan upper carburettor at the side of the cowls.
If there is fuel, check after cranking if the plugs are 'wet'. If they're dry: clean the carburettors

If plugs were wet: Empty all the carb cowls ( drain plug ), remove the fuel line ( pince it with pliers if no quick connector ). Crank the engine while carbs are full open throttle for 15 seconds.
Set everything back ( plugs, fuel line, drain plugs, spark plug caps ) and give it a try...

No spark to engine 1991 ford pickup

It can be faulty or dirty spark plug itselfd.Also for reference get the fuel level checked.Is the fuel tank is empty or near to empty.
Try cleaning the spark plugs and then see if that is helpin.On some cases the black carbon layer gets collected on the spark plugs and that causes the problem,so cleaning the plugs help.But if its not helping,then spark plug has to be replaced.Spark plugs get power from ignition coil to ignite sparks.If ignitioncoils are faulty then also there will no spark.--------------

My 1992 chevy g20 van surges and i'm not sure exactly why. I changed the pcv valve, fuel filter, spark plugs, and air filter. What are some possibilities

My first thought would be a vacuum leak in one of the hoses. Rubber hoses get brittle with age and even a small crack in a hose may cause surging. Happened to me in a Lumina.

My outboard wont start ive fixed the the ignition coils starter motor and spark plugs it gets spark but no fuel there is fuel getting there but just wont start tryed sparying fuel straight in the carbs but...

if you have spark and fuel it should atleast fire when you spray fuel in the carbs. if your spraying it just into the air intake it may not be making it to the intake manifold. have you checked the fuel pump? you also need to check for the possibility of a air leak in the fuel system causing the motor to fail to run because it has a very lean fuel mixture. check all fuel lines, fuel tank, couplers and carb gaskets. if you havent take the air intake cover off and try spraying some wd 40 or other mildly flammable product and see if the motor will fire that way. its likely the fuel tank or fuel lines are the problem from my point of view. good luck.

I need to see a picture of spark plug wiring and distributor for a 1992 chevy 1500 with a 350 motor.

Firing order is:
on the stock intake manifold. It is 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2 (i.e. 18436572, 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 at 4 degrees before top dead center). 1,3,5,7 is on the left bank ,4,6,8 is on the right bank. Clockwise distributor rotation. #1 is identified on the distributor cap, the wire clockwise is #8, etc.

Car will not start

Have you checked the spark? If it's the 4 cylinder Cavalier then your Coilpack is behind the motor and odds are it hasn't been replaced since it was manufactured. I had the same problem with that model.
