Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. First, What have you checked? Have you checked any of the fuses?
If you are not getting fire, you need to check the connections to the crankshaft sensor. This sensor not firing, or disconnected with cause a no spark issue. Also, this is a component that you have to come in contact with when doing the chain.
Give me just a moment to review a few things.
Also, are you sure you have the distributor timing right?
Here, I am providing diagnosis information for the crank sensor. Give me just a moment.
Here is some information for the chain and sprockets, just in case. You need to test the crank sensor circuits and the distributor circuits to verify proper function so you will know exactly where you stand.
I don't believe it would, the crank sensor doesn't read the balancer in this vehicle. Let me be sure.
No, the balancer wouldn't cause this. I'm think that you may have damaged or not have the cranksensor connected properly. Also, you should check the connection to the ignition coil for power and ground also. Here is some ignition coil testing.
You should have to cover all the way on also. This may effect the signal.
If you were out of time, the motor would be struggling to turn over because the actions are not moving properly. You should be setting the timing to number 1.
When you have the distributor pointing at the 1 on the cap, the 1 cylinder should be a TDC.
One moment, please.
If the timing is off, It would have to be internal(cam and crank shaft).
When the rotor on the cap is point at 1, the number 1 cylinder should be at TDC.
How can you determine if the timing is correct?
As long as you have the timing marks correct you should be good. You will have to set the number 1 to TDC and verify that the timing marks are on the correct spots.
Here are the locations of the timing marks just in case.
