Hello, I’m fairly new to car repair. I just replaced my starter on my 2004 GMC Sierra. After replacing the starter the truck seems to have difficulty starting up. It sounds like it’s having to turn over a few times before the vehicle actually starts. I’ve included a link to the video. Video was too large to add directly to post. Thank you for your help. https://youtu.be/3Pv9iTVYGMU
I just changed my distributor cap.and rotor today as well as the spark plugs and spark plug wires. I also attempted to change the fuel filter but only the top fuel line would crack. The bottom nut wouldn't bulge so I stopped trying because I didn't want to cause any damage to the fuel lines. Fuel came out of the top fuel filter end and the end that connects to the engine so I know the engine is getting fuel. I also tried to get spark by putting a new spark plug into the wire end that goes down the spark plug hole and put it on metal and tried to crank and I didn't see any spark. I didn't touch anything on the distributor besides the cap and rotor. I'm really stumped as to why it won't start and apparently i'm not getting spark. Anybody have any ideas what could be the issue? The engine cranks but wont start. The car is a 1998 honda civic lx and the car started before i attempted to do regular matienence but it cranked longer than it should and idled hard before i had to give it gas to stay on. Thats why i even tried changing the stuff mentioned above in the first place. Thanks in advance for any advice.
