1989 Chevy pickup was running great went up a hill started sputtering and backfired. Engine quit, cranked it over and backfired again and still no start. Checked all fuses everthing looks good. With the backfiring I suspect ignition problems but I haven't had a chance to check for spark or fuel yet. The rig has 144,000 miles on it just tuned it up with spark plug wires,cap,rotor, and fuel filter and exhaust. Everthing has been working great until now. Any ideas?

it sounds like my 94 chev, it started sputtering and surgeing and then finally quit running all together. it turned out to be the module in the distributor. easy fix, cost about 40 buks. let us know what yu find.
Checked the coil thought it was bad so I replaced it. Cost 21.00 at local Napa store. Bought an ignition module at Schucks for 35.43 and put it in. It fired up immediately. Pretty easy install just had to take the cap off and remove 2 screws and the pickup coil plug. Just wanted everyone to know what to look for if you have the same problem.
