engine died while driving towed it home now it wont start at all its getting spark i believe its getting fuel as well but wont crank over?
I brought a part but It doesn't seem like right part. It's long, with two terminals on one endend, and a threaded end with plunger. The same switch is on the front of my break shaft not the back, that's why I think I might have the wrong part.

I foud a 3 wire black sleeved cablr coming from the cruise/wiper/turn sign. switch on the column that has a receptacle i dont reconize,I had a s15 before that I replaced the column in from a truck with cruise but mine didn't have it so I didn't worry about it.This truck is original & for some reason it's been disconnected,does anyone know where this wire is supposed to plug in? I am assuming this is why my cruise is not working, any help would be greatly appreciated..........thanx
it acts if it is flooding can this also be the fuel pump? I was thinking throttle position sensor but not sure. It wont idle after it warms up. hold throttle to floor to restart smell gas. The serging is at any speed including highway.

I just replaced my 1987 2.8v6 engine, transmission and underhood wireharness with a 1990 4.3v6. I bought a new computer for the 1990, a new map sensor and of course the 4.3 was brought to the machine shop for the heads and block. My question is I put an MSD distributor on it with coil to get better performance and I am having high idle, busting out on the top end and some times it loads up at the longer red lights. I have not replaced the old throttle body and was wondering if it was the problem?
i have installed new battery & alternator on 1986 Jimmy,and my amp meter is 11 or 12. and should be 14. Can this be a cable problem
