My 2002 gmc envoy wouldn’t start but would diesel afterward new fuel pump coil and ignition module still no start replaced distributor and vehicle started instantly I had even replaced cap and rotor prior to this somehow either moisture was getting into the distributor through a bad seal in the shaft or the pickup was bad distributor was only 35$ on line

Are you certain of the year? The 2002 4.2L I6 engine does not have a coil or distributor and is impossible to diesel due to direct injection. Are you talking about an S series 4.3L V6?

It is a 4.3 vortex blazer/envoy s-15 style I thought I put the engine type on my message. Went out and tried it the next day fired up instantly. It’s possible that there was something wrong with the pickup inside the distributor since I had put a brand new cap on but I’ve seen a lot of people reporting the same kind of problems so I hope this might help someone
