Having problems with your 1996 GMC Sonoma ?
I changed my dist. cap & rotor wireleads and plugs. The truck still wont start what am i missing?
\015 My truck wouldn't start. I finally got it started and brought it to the shop. The mechanic there said it was the airflow sensor that was telling the comp. it wasn't getting the proper airflow. So he replaced it. Then it started. he also said that it wouldn't hurt to change the cap,wires,and plugs. They wanted to much so i did it myself, but like i said i replaced all of that and it still won't start. The rotor and cap seems stationary, so i'm not sure if it needs to be advanced.\015
What the mechanic said does not make sence, the first thing you need to do is start from basics. Check the spindle on the distributer moves as you turn the engine over. If it does replace the top and connect the lead to a plug you have removed, then earth it on the motor. (DO NOT HOLD IT OR THE CABLE) . Turn over the engine again, it should spark ( the plug). Then check the timing from scratch. If you want to know in detail how to check the timing, post again.
