No Spark

Asked by Jul 01, 2016 at 07:03 PM about the 1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Silverado Extended Cab LB RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a  97 C1500, it turns over but no spark. I've
replaced the distributor, distributor cap, ignition
coil, rotor, crankshaft sensor, fuel pump, fuel filter,
and pvc. I'm getting fuel to the top and the throttle
body is on opening. Yet, my distributor isn't getting
no fire nor the plugs. My year don't have any VATS.
So what is the problem? I'm going broke.

New spark plugs and wires? Old plugs can short out. Wires degrade resulting in an open circuit. Amie

I forgot to mention that I replaced the plugs and wires too. Again the distributor itself isn't firing.


What are the DTC codes?
