Engine Mechanical problem
1993 Chevy Astro 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 167000 miles
Where DO I start I recently replaced my 93 4.3 astro's engine with my 92 astro engine. All the wiring and major connections in the 93 were reused including the upper intake. Of course I had to remove the distributor in order to replace the upper intake. Now the 92 motor I must admit sat outside a full year not in use but before it was removed from another van I had it ran and ran good. But now I have it completely installed in the 93 astro and I cant seem to get it to start. I thought it was the timing at first because I could see that the spark plugs were socked in gas from trying to start the van meaning its getting gas and the coil sparked a good blue spark as I tested for spark. I have done the timing set procedure over and over again (#1 cyl to TDC by setting timing mark and aligning rotor with with #1 on distributor cap) but it will not start motor kept choking as if timing was off any advice would be helpfull. Just hoping I have missed somthing anyhelp would be great let me no Rich.
have the same problem?
