1989 Chevy c20 not starting

Asked by Tyffany Sep 08, 2019 at 01:26 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Drive her and she was fine. Parked her then tried to
start again and nothing happens now. There's
power but starter seems to not be getting juice.
Rewired from the starter all the way up and still
same. Turn the key and lights on day, buzzers and
fans come on but turning to run nothing happens.
Had this issue before and replacing the fuel tank
relay fixed it but this time it didn't fix it. I just
checked and there is power in the eyes to the
starter win the key is on

had frequent oil changes? motor worn have seen this condition, as a timing tooth jumps and it almost runs, but no~ would examine the cam to crank and condition of the timing chain at this point~ simply look at the distributor cam (silent cam) to see if it's working properly~

All are good. Just replaced the ignition switch too and still the same thing. There's some kind of power cutout to the starter even though all eyes to it have power they should have
