Needing to know how to prime my trucks cylanders to start it again.
I replaced my spark plugs and wires, I let it run for about 30 seconds and turned it off. I tried to start it the next day and I saw that a set of wires was placed to the wrong cylander; so I put them to the right cylander. Now my truck won't start I am thinking that my cylanders aren't primed with fuel to start. Would you please help me.
Double check all the spark plug wires to insure that they are going to the correct cylinders. There is no priming needed. Even with two wires hooked up wrong the truck will still run. It'll run poorly but it'll still run. I know from experience. I've, ahem, done that myself once. HTH. -Jim
Thank you Jim, your words were very helpful however I double checked all of the wires and everything is fully seated and I hear all of the clicking for all of the wires, I tried to jump it and tried to start it and it still only clicks so I'm thinking it is the starter. but do you or anyone have any advice?
When you try to start it put the headlights on and have a helper watch them. Do they dim, go out, or flicker? If so check the connections at the battery, the starter, and where the ground (-) battery cable bolts on the engine or chassis. HTH. -Jim
Thank you Jim, sadly the lights don't flicker or go out. I think it may be the starter.
You're welcome. Glad to help. Sounds like the starter to me as well. HTH. -Jim
