Question about Chevrolet Express

1999 Chevy Express Van, I have just cleaned the carbon build up on the distributor cap, tried starting the van and it will not run. Checked for an arch it is good, now it will not even try to turn over. Any ideas. Thanks

Check for spark and fuel. If you have spark make sure your fuel pump is working. If pump is working and no spark, check for spark off coil wire. If nothing there either, remove ignition module and take it to Napa and have them check it. Have them test it several times.

You need to replace the handle itself. The inside of the handle where the metal cable fitting attaches causes too much strain on the plastic and the molded groove breaks. Ford has the same problem. I don't know why these car man. dont just go back to all metal exterior handles. If you have time you can probably fix it with epoxy and washers, but the fastest way is to get one aftermarket or from a junkyard. Hope this answers your question.
Please remember to rate this fix.

2002 chevy express fuel pump/crank sensor?? not starting


i had a similar problem and called the dealer during lunch hour. i talked to a mechanic, the distributor in these vehicles is plastic, and is prone to cracking.not just the cap but the body also, I have been taking the cap off and wiping the moisture out of the cap. or replacing the cap but the problem is I need a new distributor. just a cheep way to get rolling is cleaning the inside of the cap, especially when it is very damp or the outside temp changes alot during the day. good luck.

Fuel Filters need to be changed EVERY 15,000 Mi and oil changes once a year maybe,maybe every two years
Common Problem for the cargo is that the distributor gets moisture in it due to the vent being plugged up, And the Cap and rotor have been Known to cause your symptoms use only GENUINE dELCO PARTS IN YOUR VAN TO ASSURE THE PROPER PERFORMANCE

More than likely it's the distributor. They have a tendency to build up corrosion and rust and have personally went through the same situation three weeks ago on a suburban. Check to see if you are getting spark from the distributor first. Have the ecm in the distributor checked at Oriellys for free. It's under the rotor and has two 8mm head bolts with wires plugged in at each end.
