Customer Question
2000 Silverado 2500. 6.0 ...

2000 Silverado 2500. 6.0

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Chevy. The Chevy Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

Replaced engine (fresh reman) got it together and has no spark

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Teuck would not crank over fully at first (acted as if he battery were dead) fixed a ground and it cranked fine. After I got it cranking it had no spark. Changed crank sensor and it fired for 30 seconds and died. No spark again. Tried another crank sensor. No luck. Changed cam sensor, no luck. Triple checked grounds and added a few, no luck. Swapped computers and did a security reset. No luck. Truck fired up one other time after switching between computers, but again only for 30 seconds.

Mechanic's Assistant: Lots of things can cause problems with the battery. The Chevy Mechanic will know what to do. Is there anything else important you think the Chevy Mechanic should know about your Chevy?

The truck ran fine before the old motor blew, still started and ran with a rod knock. Swapped reman and now this is my issue

HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Just to make sure, the reman engine was for a 2000, correct?

Also, what is the security light doing - blinking on and off, coming on and staying on until key is turned off or coming on and going off within 10 seconds

I figured out the problem. Damaged wires on the cam sensor plug. Thanks for the response anyways.
