Make sure its a LT1 engine if it is check all your spark plugs and cables first,make sure the firing order is in right order. IF all that passes check all your optispark distributor could be cracked or your rotor is no good. The distributor is behind the water pump and the harmonic pully. Get ready cuz all this is going to take some time and your distributor is not going to be cheap.
