Question about 1985 GMC S-15
Pulled my dizzy cap off and found metal shavings inside. my engine also has a hesitation while under load. are these shavings normal?
Don't listen to (wisslindixy) clearly uneducated. your engine is not shot just because of metal shavings under the cap.Take the cap off and see if the distributor shaft has any play If it does that's were the metal shavings are coming from. It's a worn out bearing in the distributor shaft

. No they are not . It indicates that the distributor shaft is either bent or loose on the drive shaft. allowing the rotor button to touch the pins in the cap. It may also indicate that the mechanical advance is failing.

As you've already realised, this is serious. The engine is more than likely totally shot. Maybe a broken valve and punched a hole in a piston. Broken piston rod maybe. It's been overheated and also probably blown the head gasket and warped a head. You're looking at a complete engine re-build already. I think I'd just buy a rebuilt long block and start fresh.

check air flow threw the engine. Catalytic converter could be clogged up. And when was the last time you replaced the fuel filter? Replace this first
