Thread: Got Me stumped

  1. #1

    Default Got Me stumped

    Ok i have a 98 k1500 5.7 vortec. Ok so here is what is going on. I put a new plentum and intake gasket on my truck and now it will not start. The only way i can get it to start is to advance the timing by 1 tooth and unplug the tps. If i advance or retard the timing at all it will not start. I have checked the tps and even replaced it, the old one and new one where both good. I do not know what to do. When the truck is running and you plug in the tps it dies immediately. Any ideas would be great. I need help bad!!!!!!!

    I would assume you put it to IDC on cylinder #1 and lined up the tab on the rotor where it should follow cylinder #1 after you have it dropped in all the way. make sure it is droping into the oil pump shaft when you install it. I had to spend about 4 hrs getting just right on my truck.
