Asked by Jul 25, 2016 at 06:24 AM about the 1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Silverado Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1997 Chevy silverado. One morning I went
to start my truck and it wouldnt start. It's turning
over and getting gas because it back fired after
cranking it for a few seconds. I replaced spark
plugs and spark plug wires, I replace crankshaft
sensor and drained the gas lines then put frsh gas
in it (even though it was already fresh). I am
stumped and cannot figure out what else I should
do.

The best thing to do instead of a lot of guessing is go to auto parts store like autozone and rent a scanner to read the codes they will ask for a deposit but you will get it back when you bring to scanner back. But just to guess I have found out that on that vehicle most of the time it is camshaft sensor but like I said it is just a guess.

Okay since I've already replaced the crankshaft sensor, I'll go rent one. Thanks

Mines doing the same thing . Put it on the machine and it said crank shaft position sensor. Put a new one on still wont crank.
