Car ran fine and turned car off. Two hours later turned car on and it shook violently and loud banging noise. This is a 2002 Chevy S10 pickup 4.3 times off computer and does not have timing plate. Changed slightly loose timing chain. When lifting distributer cap up, the rotor does not point to #1. It was between 4 and 6 it ran fine only above idle. On idle it shakes violently and in gear it won't move. On # 1 it pops while trying to start it won't start. Distributer, rotor, plugs and wires are new
Car starts now but it shakes and smells of gas. Added gum out fuel injection cleaner in. Fuel pump is ok. Fuses ok. New distributor, plugs and wires. Prior to all this the car ran fine, pulled into garage, turned car off for a few hours and then when turned on it shook violently and banging noise. Now while it starts it smells of gas. Idles for 10 seconds and then quits.

It does set the timing through the computer but you still have to manually set it right and then have the timing advanced with a diagnostic computer. The clunking is prolly one of the timing guides broken. And the timing mark for the crank is on the block not the cover
