i sprayed starting fluid down there and nothing
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 10 months ago

can you see if you have spark when cranking it over at the spark plug wires where they connect to the spark plugs ?

if this is not starting up it is missing spark or fuel or compression

we need to see which you are missing

after a few mins of trying to start it you can hear like a puff of air coming out of it like you know when a person is out of breath and they are puffing if that makes sence
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 10 months ago

i wish you could confirm it had close to 60 PSI of fuel pressure with the key turned on engine off

at the test port on the drivers side of the distributer at the fuel line

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
how do i test that
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 10 months ago

with a fuel pressure gauge connected to that test port

if the fuel pressure is good and it will NOT run by adding starting fluid try a new cap and rotor and see if it will run

what does a compression tester do
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 10 months ago

is screws into where the spark plugs go to check and see if the cylinders have the correct compression of over 120 psi when cranking it over
