Chevrolet 2500 Pickup ProblemsEngine Misfire Due to Worn Valve Seat
The engine may develop a misfire due to worn valve seats. This fault will cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us the misfire may or may not be felt while driving. They further recommend that both cylinder heads be removed and thoroughly inspected and repaired as necessary.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
The distributor may develop internal faults. This can cause a rough running engine or stalling condition, the Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate. Our technicians tell us that the distributor should be overhauled or replaced to correct this concern.
Chevrolet 2500 Pickup QuestionsWhat will be the problem if the truck won't start and the starter is good? (1 answer)
My friend has a 4/4. He walked in to the gas station and he shut it off. Before that it was running fine. He started right up. It sounded like the starter went. We took it in to get it checked out and it works fine. There is gas in the tank.
It's not the distributor, I changed that out. Not coil or emission control module.
I just changed the distributor in my 1999 k2500 and now fuel pump and gauges will not work I also bought a new battery and fuel and ignition relay if I turn the key sometimes it will engage and sometimes it won't you think it can be distributor related?
