What do you think about this video?

Libertytreetv .com: Mod not over tighten the cap screws if they strip or crack the base you have to pull distributor. If u pull it u better mark it 

Jaki Garcia: i have a problem with my heater. on a Chevy blazer. what could i do to fix it?

chancesGLEC14: waht does that do?

Doug Smith: I'm having trouble starting my car. I replaced the starter & battery.. Its cranks up but don't start. What else could be wrong with it? I know it needed a tune up please help!

Mike Shumaker: Do you know if a 2000 Chevy S0 ZR2 with the V6 engine has a port anywhere for a hand-held diagnostic tool such as Autel's MaxiScan? Thanks.

yz100f: quick question what could cause a 99 s-10 4.3 x vin to stall 15 min after startup like starved for gas but then restart and its fine for another 15 min wether its hot or cold it acts the same and its getting worse tho it is getting colder outside?

james belbin: I have a 96 Gmc sonoma v-6 vortex 4.3L, it has a misfiring problem speficially P0300 random misfiring. It is a , It was was running rough for a well and Today i went to check the wires and plugs, the wires and the plugs are good(reset the gap). i did each one a time and when i was done with cylenders 2,4,6 i fired the engine up and it was running rougher than it was before, and the check engine light flashes. Would replacing the cap and rotor stop the random misfire codes. no other codes read?

joecoolmustang: I need help, I have a 00 jimmy with the 4.3. It cranks up fine but if I let it sit up for 2 or more days and it's cold it will turn but never crank. I know it's getting gas cause I can smell it. Does anyone know what it could be.

Joshua Forth: @1aauto Ok, I replaced the cap and rotor, And checked the wire's still good no wear at all. But The motor runs better but still struggles and backfire but not as bad now. it kind of solved it half way. but still has that struggling and a small backfire. but not as bad as before. I'm Lost now any more idea's on what to check next? Thanks so much for the info you're very helpful. It only took me 35 min to replace the cap and rotor on my 98 gmc sonoma 4.3 v-6 Joshua Forth

whorehousetom: @joecoolmustang fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator.just repaired this problem with 2001 chevy 4.3 S-10 blazer.might be a place to start

951prerunner: did this last week along with replacing the spark plug wires,runs smooth,thanks 1aauto.

Joshua Forth: I Have a 98 GMC Somoma 4.3 V-6 When I Start it up and go to put it in drive and give it gas. The Engine Does not want to go and struggle to get going and backfires and does this for about 1 mile or If i back off the gas and then it goes like it has no problem. But Only Does This When I start it up every time. Can You Help Me Out On What I Might Need To Replace. Maybe The ICM OR Distributor Cap And Rotor? Thanks Joshua.F

1A Auto Parts: @ramaffei I generally replace the rotor when I replace the cap. One way to tell if you need wires is to run your car in the dark and see if you see any arcing or sparks jumping from the wires to the engine. Otherwise replacing plug wires at 100K miles is a good idea, 50K if you are really fanatical.

121sabritas: hi i like your videos thank you you keen make a video how to change water pump for chevy s10 xtreme 2001 v6 4.3 please help i buy the cap and the rotor on 1a auto thankyou

1A Auto Parts: It would more than likely make the vehicle run rough more than anything.

1A Auto Parts: You will want to mark the position of it, so that the timing is correct when you place it back in.

paulsinnkc: @joshuaforth try the map sensor...........its going to get worse, mine even went so far as the sevice engine soon light would flash and truck would bogg down,and id be going thru gas like 2miles to the gallon.

1A Auto Parts: @yz100f You may also want to make sure that the catalytic convertor isn't clogged under the car.

jedi7571: Could a bad distributer cause a bad rattle vibration?

1A Auto Parts: If there happens to be a check engine light on in the vehicle, you may want to have the code pulled, it should point you in a direction as to what might be causing the issue. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

mmaforlifenhtown: Do not over tighten the screws on the distributor they strip out easy. I messed up by using a socket wrench to tighten them should have used a driver. snug tight is good

timmyodirtbikerider: i have a problem my 98 chevy blazer cranks but will not start do u no what it might be

BASS CHEF: i hate those little t20 screws!!! =D

joecoolmustang: I replace the cap and the rotor new wires and plugs. The scanner says that I still have cylinder 5 misfiring. Any one know what it could be?

1A Auto Parts: @MileyCyrus192 Thank you for visiting our auto repair channel on YouTube. We'll keep this request in mind in the event that we need to make this repair in the future.

Prince Noah: As easy as that looked, mine was not that simple. The whole distributor had to be replaced because it's bearing went bad. When I started it up, it sounded like a swarm of bees was under the hood. When I turned it with my fingers, it sounded like a duck. Cost me $530 to have it replaced.

1A Auto Parts: @yz100f If you have haven't tuned the truck up in a while, you may also want to change the spark plugs,wires, cap and rotor. This may also get you truck running smoother if any of these things are worn.

joecoolmustang: Thanks I'm going try to check it tomorrow, It did crank for me today but now it's missing firing and the check engine light blinks a little then stays on for a min then blinks again.

DatBadWun: Very nice video. I have a 96 blazer and im having hesitation when i crank up, sometimes it acts like it doesnt want to crank at all i was told it may be the cap and rotor, told it may be the MAF, fuel pump kicks on, dont have any hesitation accelerating only when i start up. what could it be?

yz100f: @1aauto yea i saw the plugs arccing abit but i really think its the coil or my f pump is over heating when i fill it up above half tank it stalls less ive yet to fill it all the way up but my suck tube problly ctacked was -15 c the last couple days so maibe that ?

1A Auto Parts: They're pretty inexpensive, you're better off just replacing it.

1A Auto Parts: @TheChev98 If you haven't yet, you may want to change the fuel filter if it hasn't been changed in a while. There could be something in it constricting the gas flow to the carb.

1A Auto Parts: It could be. You may want to take a look at it. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

vawxs: Do you have any videos on how to replace the entire distributor? -- I'm trying to replace the distributor drive gear

TheChev98: Awesome video but the spark #3 is pain to take out. Do I need special tool to spark out? And also I have 98 s10 4.3L vortex cranking but not start up unless i spray carb spray on carb. I also can hear the fuel pump hissing when ignition turn. Any suggestion what to look for fail parts? thanks

1A Auto Parts: @yz100f You may want to check the EGR valve to see if it needs to be replaced. If it tends to jump or lurch forward while at stop, this is also a sign of a faulty EGR valve. Hope this helps.

Christopher Keiper: I have a sputtering issue, cat is getting replaced, but should i replace distribution block or ignition coils too?.

1A Auto Parts: @djgarcia95 It may resolve the issue.Sometimes it could also be a bad spark plug,wire, or rotor too. Hope this helps you out.

udontnoeme05: can you do a video on replacing the intake manifold gasket on a 03 chevy s10 Xtreme pick up 4.3L V6?! I have coolant leaking on the intake manifold which i belive the gasket is worn out. what kind of gasket replacement did you use? what is the best replacement, a metal gasket, the stock gasket, or an aftermarket gasket?

ramaffei: Question: my '00 Blazer turns over but doesn't start in damp/rainy conditions...especially if cold. It's baffled several LA mechanics. But some friends mentioned changing the D. Cap as it may have a crack. Would you recommend changing the rotor too?...and wires?? Or can I start with cap only? Thank you!!....this video will help immensely!!

woodyate: I like that hat on the intake. can you sand the contacts clean on those?

Irishdrums85: Hi Mike, My 98' 4.3l has a sputter when it is damp, or wet out. I have been told that i need to replace the cap/rotor. What are your thoughts? Thanks!

1A Auto Parts: @MrMacrun You can replace the coil while the cap is off. The distributor doesn't need to be removed.

El Chukii: if i remove the distributor from the engine dosnt matter?

paulsinnkc: i took it a little furtherand removed the shaft that goes to the cam ,gear at the bottom , the teeth were really thin.and now after it got put back togetrher ,it wont start..any suggestions

Scout_124: thanks for the video, im going to do this to my jimmy this weeked

1A Auto Parts: You could try to replace the cap and rotor first.

1A Auto Parts: @vawxs Sorry we don't have that video right now.

1A Auto Parts: @FxOxC Those P03XX are headaches. I had the same problem on a 93 Blazer. Turned out to be a bad computer. But that was just my vehicle. I have seen it be simple stuff like a bad distributor cap, to a bad computer, could be a fuel pressure regulator (although probaly not if you car runs OK even for a little bit) . I wish I could be of more help but like I said that trouble code is trouble.

1A Auto Parts: It may, depending on what component is causing the issue.
