Bill, try this file.
No, that didn't work. Maybe because I was prompted to sign up for something from MicroS, and didn't want to. There was another option offered, but it just barfed up a blank screen.
Yes, all the hardware is in place. I have heard sound in many audio/video postings, but only those that kind of run "automatic". Youtube usually works fine.
Okay, we'll forget that. I checked my scanner. It's not a scanner, just a simple OBDII code reader.
Do you want to try the ELM327 routine?
Will ELM327 work with an OBD l vehicle?
Bill: MP3, MPG, WAV, PCM and WMA are all different types of media files. MP3 is the most common nowadays. Your computer will probably play WAV files fine, but this site does not allow uploading of that type of file. I might be able to "trick" this site into believing I am uploading a text file, but you would then have to save the file to your computer, then rename it, then click on it to play it.
Okay, I created a YouTube video. Try this:
That's your engine (starting sound, not the picture)? It sounds OK to me, but kind of hard to tell the cranking speed since it fires so quickly.
On the ELM, no probably not viable for OBD1. I forgot this was a '94. There are other options, though, that don't require the big $$ of an official Tech1. Since this is a Chevy, it is well supported by the hobbyists and aftermarket.
Bill: Your computer should automatically play it with the default- built in Windows Media player. I listened to it and it sounded perfectly normal to me. But the starter ran a very short time prior start up so it was hard to tell.
Friday: Another sound file with the engine unable to start would be better to listen to.
I can do that.
Here's one with the fuel pump disabled.
That doesn't sound particularly slow to me; I would call it "normal cranking".
Having cranked many 350 v8 engines, I call that normal.
Bill and Jack: Thank you for the input. I've only owned one other 350, so wasn't sure. As usual, I learned a lot from the experience and from this site.
Now on to the next item, fresh air door actuator is bad (thumping). Have unplugged the culprit to stop the noise, now to get it off the truck. I'll post a new thread if I run into problems.
