I am with the limited use of starter fluid.Thank you for your response. The engine does have new plugs, plug wires, coil, and battery, and many other new parts. And yes it is getting fuel. I have a difficult time telling if the spark is weak but everything appears to defy the laws of science. that is what is so frustrating about it.
The first question that I have is did it run before you started messing with it?That is very interesting. I have checked that many times and I believe I have things in the right place, The firing order is another thing I have checked. I think I have a few clues to work on. I believe things will work out if I keep mucking with it? I will let you know. Thanks again.
Thank you for your help. It is on TBI . It has a new fuel pump and filter. I pumped out the old gas and put in all fresh stuff.I am with the limited use of starter fluid.
Depending on how you are checking the spark but basically it should be blue-ish to white hot. A yellow-ish spark is a weak spark.
If it chugs with starter fluid you can focus on fuel. I am guessing in 1992 it was a carburetor. My 1996 has throttle body fuel injection.
Fuel pump would be my next suspect. I presume in your efforts you installed a new fuel filter? Did you flush and fill the gas and if not how old do you reckon the gas is?
If you drain some gas is there any water in it?
That to me does indicate bad fuel. Did you also flush out the fuel lines between tank and TBI while emptying the fuel tank and replacing with fresh gas? Have you tried using starting fluid as suggested?It was running wonderful last summer and then just sitting over the winter is what did this. Sorry I should have mentioned that.
That is meaningless, if you're checking the spark at the spark plug. Many vehicles which "appear" to have a weak spark on the plug have a very high voltage spark in reality. And sometimes even vice versa.I have a 92 Fleetwood Flair P-30, 454 and it appears to have a weak spark.
Thank you for your thoughts. The cap and rotor are both brand new. I once had a brand new rotor on another vehicle that was a composit material and it was bad from the outset. Can you believe that?I didn't see distributor cap and rotor mentioned. My son once sold his Yukon to a relative because it barely ran. The relative was honest and undid the deal when he found the only problem was the rotor was burned up.
