Wet Distributor Cap - No Ignition
By wfm on
2000 GMC Sierra 1500 SL 2dr Regular Cab LB
Broke down in March 2003 with this 2000
GMC 1500 6 cyl pickup at 73000 km and
had to be towed. The distributor cap
acquires moisture buildup and kills the
spark. I am the second owner so this
may have happened before. The towtruck
operator and other owners in this area
of Eastern Canada said this is a common
problem with the newer Chev and GMC
pickups in our Canadian wet but cold
and damp weather. My previous 1988 Chev
went for 15 yrs without this problem.
What did they change?
