Asked by Feb 28, 2015 at 01:42 AM about the 1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 WT Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

OK so we bought this 97 Chevy k1500 350
vortec it ran beautifully. One day it died
driving around town. We replaced the crank
sensor and ignition module. Could the
timing chain have skipped? Any ideas

1 Answer

Make sure you have spark going to the plugs. Could be the distributor or coil. Also check your fuel pressure. If you hear the fuel pump, this doesn't mean you have enough pressure to start the vehicle.
