I have a 96 gmc jimmy 4wd with a 4.3. The truck has had a hard time starting every once in a while but ran fine after started. My girlfriend tried to start it the other day and it was backfiring and broke the nose of the starter off. Has new plugs, cap, rotor, fuel filter, and air filter. The distributor has not spun and the rotor spins when the motor is turned over. Seems like a timing chain to me but wanted to make shure before I start tearing it apart. Is there an easy way to check the chain on this motor?
have the same problem?
