Question about 1989 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have an 89 Chevy Cavalier Z24 Model with a 2.8L with a crank no start. I have checked spark and it has none. Ive replaced all 3 coils and the ignition module. Still nothing. What should I do next?
Check your fuel pump. It may have died. One way to check is to see if you smell gas at the tail pipe after trying to start it. If you don't, that is a good indicator that the fuel pump ma have died or your fuel filter is clogged.

Loss of power could be a result of a plugged cat, but not the smoke,still leaning toward a head gasket or cracked head. Remove all of the spark plugs. Pressurize the radiator with approximately 15 pounds of pressure and wait for approximately 1/2 hour to 1 hour then crank the engine over and watch to see if coolant comes out of the spark plug holes. This will tell you if your problem is a head gasket or possibly a cracked head. And just on a side note, unless it was a typo, an 89 should only be carburated or have TBI, they didnt have injectors on those models yet, and off the top of my head I dont think most vehicles were using crank sensors either then, but I'd have to look that up to know for sure.

SOURCE: my 1996 cavalier Z24 wont start
pull a wire and ground it via useing a screw driver at the end of the spark plug boot to check for spark / if their is no spark / ignition control module / there is also a crank shaft position sensor / located on the back side of the motor under the coil packs / pain to get to / also the nuetral safty switch / to check the neutral safty switch diconnect the big harnest at the neutral safty switch put a fuse tester to the yellow wire / have someone turn the key / with the tester grounded the light should come on / now we know the ignition switch has power going through it. if there is a no power at the yellow wire / bad ignition switch / does the car have a relay located at the top of the radiator core support (up by the radiator looking down drivers side)if it does not gm will install one for free / if there is / look for the purple wire coming out of the relay and Follow it down to the starter / reconnect the neutral safty swtch / touch the small S (the smallest screw) terminal on the starter soilenoid / have someone turn the key forward check the light / this will detemine if the relay is good / CAREFULL NOT to touch the big starter wire with the little one it will jump the starter / I HAVE THE SAME CAR / Hope this helps

On 2.2L 4CYL VIN It's located on rear side of cylinder block below coil module.
On 2.4L 4CYL VIN[T] It's located on front side of cylinder block almost dead center.

SOURCE: 88 cavalier has no spark
check the throttle position sensor,it may be stuck and it wont start unless its all the way back.Almost like trying to start it with the gas pedal down-which it will crank and crank but it wont start.
