1996 Chevy Suburban C1500

Asked by Jan 10, 2017 at 12:53 PM about the 1996 Chevrolet Suburban C1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1996 Chevy Suburban  5.7L  stalled in
me like it had a major vacuum leak, which it
did. The intake had come loose and it
sucked in too much air and stalled. I placed
it back on it started up ran for about 200 feet
stalled again and hasn't started again. I have
replaced the battery, the distributor cap , the
rotor cap, the ingnition coil, crankshaft
sensor module. It appears to be getting fuel.
It's not getting any fire to the cylinders. What
is the issue ?

Ignition Control Module if bad would make it not run. You can have those check at the parts store.

This Duff's Corner ... On You Tube ..Get you some thick gloves on, and hold you a screwdriver up to the spark plug. And you will see firsthand if you're getting fire to those cylinders guaranteed !!!

Make sure you have voltage going to that module 12+ as well!
