STARTING PROBLEM

Chevrolet Silverado

I have a 92 chevy silverado c1500 205000 miles. Not even a year ago I had my plugs, wires, cap and rotor, pick up coil, ignition coil, and ignition module replaced. Every once in awhile I can't get it to start the starter turns but no fire. If any of my parts were faulty wouldn't it just not start altogether. This only happens about 2 to 3 times a month but its a real pain when it does it takes 15 to 20 cranks to get it to finally catch. Any ideas?

You must first decide if you have lost spark or fuel. If it is spark then it is probably the ignition module.

If it is fuel it MAY be the oil pressure switch as the fuel circuit goes through th switch.

When you turn it on do you hear the fuel pump run for about 3-9 seconds? If not it may be the fuel pump relay. Good luck
