2000 impala wont start

Asked by Dec 29, 2015 at 11:21 AM about the 2000 Chevrolet Impala LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My impala just stalled while driving, it turns over fine but will not start. I have
had over last 3 years the mass air flow sensor, crankshaft sensor, throttle
position sensor, water pump, fuel pump and power steering pump replaced.
Why is it now not starting?

Spray some starting fluid down the throttle body. It should run a few seconds on the starting fluid. If so, it's a fuel problem. If it won't run on the starting fluid check for spark. Remove one of the spark plug wires at the spark plug and insert a large screwdriver in the boot. Hold the metal screwdriver close to something metal, that's not painted, while a helper cranks the engine. If you have spark at this point it's time to run a compression test. If all cylinders test low or zero it's jumped timing. If you have no spark it's an ignition problem. HTH. -Jim
