Can someone point me in the right direction?


Asked by Sep 04, 2015 at 02:36 PM about the 1997 Chevrolet Express G1500 Passenger Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1997 Chevy Express 1500 Conversion Van

Just purchased an Express 1500 Conversion Van. I recently replaced a
number of things on the car (battery, fuel pump, spark plugs, fuel pump
filter). I've got it to the point where it cranks now with starter fluid, but it still
won't start. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

1 Answer


Connect a scanner and see if any DTC codes present.. Definitely sounds like a fuel problem if it fires on the fluid. By the way..using starter fluid on a regular basis is not good for the engine.
