I have a 1993 gmc 1500 350 tbi engine.I need to no if the rotor on the disturber points to the no.1 cylinder or the no.1 on the disturber cap when installing the disturber.please help

Your supposed to make a mark all that before you pull the distributor. Did you mark the relationship between distributor body and engine? Then you note where the rotor is pointing, make a scratch mark. When you reinstall the distributor, line up all the marks.

If engine was turned with distributor out, You need to put the #1 piston on tdc of compression stroke. Stab the distributor, which ever spark plug tower the rotor is pointing at/turning into, becomes number 1. Then you follow the firing order around the cap in clockwise direction.

Check the spark. If there is no spark could be module in under distributor cap rotor some times moister and frost kills them. Check the coil after that if those are all-right check the computer.

Over heating no evidence of leaking no oil in radiator and no evidence of water in sump no moister on oil filler cap no loss of power.

Hi, first thing to check is the engine thermostat . could the radiator be block, a good back flush could help. good luck.

Impala 2002 stalls when driving now white exhaust when starting it, any ideas

white exhaust is caused by moister i9n the engine. if it smells like burnt coolant it is a coolant leak that can be a faulty head gasket. If the white exhaust is not very heavy and only a faint soke for a few minutes, there is nothing to worry about. Engines when ran and get to operating tempretures (195 degrees) normally burn out all moister. If the engine is ran for a very short time then shut off, moister does set in and will cause this smoke you see

Is it a diesel engine? if so, there may be water in the fuel filter which needs draining out. Whether it's diesel or petrol there could be an air lock in the fuel system, particularly in the engine bay (check that flexible fuel pipes are not routed too near hot engine components like the exhaust). If they have been disturbed recently for servicing, they may not have been repositioned under the clips that keep them away from hot components.

It should have an in line fuel filter, it will be located on the inside of the frame rail same side as the tank. Also it might have a hairline crack in the distributor cap witch lets moister get inside it and that will make it hard to start when its raining.
