This is compiled from post in the other forums... I am having trouble starting my 79K5 with a 94 454 tbi from a one ton truck. I bought this tuck in August for a guy in AZ. I had it shipped to GA, where I picked it up at the trucking company and drove it home. It ran OK on the drive home except sloppy steering. Due to the steering and starting a new job it sat for about 2 months before I drove it again. This time it started and ran as I tested the steering out. I only ran it around the parking lot for a few minutes. The next time I tried to start it the batteries were dead. I could not even start it with a jump. This may be the beginning of the problem. So I pulled the batteries and charged them over night. It still would not start. Fast forward a little more and now my condo complex is giving me crap about moving it. I tried new plugs, battery terminals and charging the batteries thinking it was electrical. The PO had a bunch of wiring from CBs and stereos going no where. I traced down a bunch of them and removed them. When I tried to start the truck it either does not turn over as if a dead battery or turns over but does not start. Once in a while it will start and rev fine for about 1-3 minutes or I try to put it in to gear. I am stumped, but I have A LOT to learn about trucks. I will be grateful for any input. Thanks. Matt The Batteries are a pair of Optima Red Tops that are less than 3 years old. They do no seem to be the problem. I charged them after the first time they died. I think the reason the were dead in the first place is all of the crap wiring hanging and the stupid car alarm. I pulled a ton of wire and the alarm. Now with strong batteries it some times starts but dies if I try to put in in gear. This is above my head. I know computers like the back of my hand but I am still learning automotive tech. If I was sure it was the wiring I would just get a Painless replacement wiring harness and be done with it. If I can not figure out some thing soon I may have to have it towed to a shop. God! I feel like such a noob. Thanks for all the help. Matt Ok, today I replaced the ignition module, Distributor cap, and rotor and plug wires. The spark plugs are new. Now the engine will turn over each time I try to start it. When the engine starts it seems to rev up and then die with in 15-20 seconds. I have no clue what is wrong any more. My condo complex is telling me I must prove it runs by the end of the week or they will tow it. I need any help anyone cares to provide. If I can not figure this out I will have to have it towed to a shop before they tow it. If anyone knows what may be the problem I would be grateful for any input. Otherwise does and one know a good shop in North Atlanta? Thanks for your time. I am posting this in the Garage and Southeast forums also.
