Hello, A ton of great posts are on this site. Excellent tech. :)
My problem is close to a few listed with a twist:
-Will not start, will turn over, spark=should be/see below.
- 92 3/4 Ton Chevy Ext Cab with 454/Stick. 389,000 miles in great condition. (Al original).
I started the truck cold. Turns over and started great, put in drive and was about 2 miles down the road and it just turns off.
1st thought - Stupid me, ran out of gas? Has 1/4 tank.
2nd, Put it in 2nd while I was still rolling and tried to pop it. That just slowed me down a bit. IE: Did not start.
3rd once at a complete stop. I looked at the dash again. All idiot lights are on, lights working. New battery etc etc. I tried again, It has power, looks good on the inside.
4th I check the belts thinking the fan belt or alternator (same) slipped. That all looks good.
5th I pull the air filter off, I spray starter fluid in and try again, same result.
Is it getting spark: Well it was running great I dont know what would cause it to stop while going 45mph.
Only other thing that I can think of as a simple fix is a fuse or sensor that was tripped. I know enough to get around an engine and all the tools and thought I would try the net before spending tons of time towing and money at a dealer.
Thank you in advance.
have the same problem?
