Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
do you have a spark on the plug wires??
does the fuel pump come on for 2 seconds when you first turn the key on?
i think you have one of two pssible problems here
the problem is that the computer doesnt know that the engine is turning,thus,to activate the injectors....
1-the ignition module,,even though you do have a spark,it may not be sending a signal to the computerthat the engine is turning..
2-the pick-up coil inside the distributer..these will just quit working sometimes,,if it is the pick-up coil,you may concider just replacing the complete distributer with a new rebuilt unit,sense it will need to be pulled and took apart to replace the pick-up
i understand it has a spark.......yes,,it is one of these......the injectors dont have a pulse.and the fuel pump doesnt run when the starter is turning..this is why it wont start and run..,,the computer doesnt know the engine is turning,thus not activating the pump or the injectors
i have seen this many,many times
let me give you a few test....when the ignition module does this,,there is no good test for it,,you local parts store can test it for spark...but not for referance,,you may want to replace it first..
