  1. I have an 85, with a z24. I need to replace the Ignition Control Module, my truck has the 4 pin module. Other forums say the part number for this icm is LX555. I have found an ICM online for only $30. (Link at the bottom) This would be a steal compared to others priced $200-300. The part number matches but it only shows a pic of the back of the module. so I can't tell how many pins it has. I feel like this is going to fall into the category: "if it sounds to good to be true it probably is" but I would be mad at myself if I didn't try. Any chance you guys can tell me if
  2. Its like I'm trying to start the truck with an almost dead battery. As I said it barely turns over. I can hear it turn over only a few times and it will just stop. The timing is the next thing I will check.
  3. Oriellys says the starter is good. I'm stuck on what to do at this point. I might just take it to a shop as a Xmas present to myself
  4. Well connecting jumper cables from the negative to the block did not help at all. I left that and connected the positive battery post to the positive connection on the starter. This also did not help. I checked my plugs and they look normal. Definitely not fouled. And I don't think I'm getting to much fuel. My younger brother who is much better with working on cars then me told me it could be my new starter so I'm gonna bring it back into oriellys so they can test it for me.
  5. I'm gonna try connecting jumper cables to the block like bottomwatcher mentioned
  6. So a small update. I've gotten the truck to start a few times since I originally posted. But my problems have not gotten any better. I readjusted my choke and re cleaned my wire connections. For the last week the truck has barely been turning over and it started 4 out of 9 separate times I tried. On the times it did start i was not expecting it to because of how slowly the truck is turning over. Once it started It runs great. I'm able to drive it around no problem. I can shut it off and go into stores and when I come out it starts up perfect. There was only one occasion this week I
  7. Battery cables are clean. I also cleaned the starter connections and grounds. My battery holds a charge. There's no drain. I put my giant battery from my benz in the truck and it was doing the same thing also tried jumping the truck off the a running vehicle and it made zero difference. The horn works.
  8. So my truck isn't wanting to start. It started acting weird when it started getting cold outside. Last winter it had zero problems with the cold weather. it would struggle to turn over and fire up, almost acting like it was flooded. But not all the time! Only sometimes after sitting overnight. Sometimes it started right up. And it always runs perfect once it starts. And once it's warmed up it started fine for the rest of the day. I started replacing parts. Each time I thought it fixed it until the next day I would try to start it and it would still just turn over but won't fire up. It progres
