    Default Can't get my 2000 chevy s10 v6 4.3l to start

    Has spark, has fuel, has compression, battery works, new starter... I tore it down to replace the intake manifold gasket because it was leaking... There was coolant in the oil... I replaced the gasket changed the oil an coolant put it all back together an it won't start... Any ideas?

    I believe so... It sounds like it diesels out after you stop cranking it over but it won't start

    If the 2000 has a distributor, the timing is not right.

    I followed all the steps to set the timing how could I be doing it wrong... I set it to tdc on the compression stroke and slid the distributor in... It says the distributor only goes in one way so how could I have screwed it up

    I believe its still possible to get the distributer 180 out.
    And the Dieseling sounds a lot like its on the wrong stroke when its firing.

    Timing is dead on

    Found a vacuum leak tho... Fingers crossed

    Still will not start... If I only crank it a normal amount of time it does nothing if I crank it for awhile and give it gas then it diesels out and backfires kinda and I little bit of smoke comes out the throttle body and it sounds like air is popping out the air intake
