Asked by Jun 26, 2017 at 11:42 PM about the 1991 Chevrolet Suburban V2500 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The truck cranks but will not start. I
replaced the fuel pump has the right
pressure and hasn’t solid ground. I also
replaced the cap and rotor, ICM, Igniton
coil, the wires from the coil to the
distributor, plugs, and wires but still will not
start. Any ideas what needs to be replaced
or what could be the issue?

crank sensor it controls spark, timing


the senor might be located behind the crank pulley or runs off the fly wheel

Where can’t I get one? I can’t find it on rock auto

Also been told it doesn’t have one for it’s year


any auto parts store could be a dealer part only cause its over ten yrs old


the sensor is behind the starter remove the starter and the wire leading to the sensor will be there


youtube it and you will see

Did and couldnt find it though. I might try and call instead of trying to look online


you got to remove the starter
