Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.
This usually means the distributor has failed and appears to be the one part you haven't replaced. Here are testing instructions, let me know if you have questions. Thanks.
Sounds like the distributor still, you will want to connect a Digital Volt Ohm Meter (DVOM) set to AC volts to the Green and White wire of the pickup coil and crank the engine. If voltage is less than 0.7 V AC, replace the distributor shaft and pickup coil. Let me know how it goes or if you have questions, thanks.
Only thing left pretty much is the distributor.
You need to access green/white wire going into distributor and use that to test.
You are correct, sorry about confusion. Does check engine light come on for bulb check when first turning key to on position?
Sounds good, thanks.
If so, check to see if pink wire going to coil has good power while trying to start.
Low voltage on pink wire would be wiring or ignition switch.
It could even be a weak battery. Monitor battery voltage while trying to start. If battery voltage drops below 11v then it sounds like a weak battery. Let me know, thanks.
That isn't always enough and a actual charger works much better then trying to charge with jumpers
Monitor battery voltage while trying to start, let me know what voltage drops to. We need to figure out if battery is weak or if poor contact in circuit is causing excessive voltage drop.
A weak battery could cause that.
That is correct so now we need to figure out what is causing the low voltage.
