Take it down to most any parts store, they can test if if they advertise module testing. Check the coil and see if there is between any of the contacts. They can probably test the coil too. If you have a repair manual for the truck it can tell you what contacts on the coil should have a connection and how much resistance there should be between them.

SOURCE: no spark on 1987 chevy cavalier

Crank position sensor would be my guess.
Its located the center, rear engine area, mounted in the block below the ignition coil pack and DIS module.My guess is that's your culprit.

96 chevy cavalier had oil pressure issue. Later found it was due to bad crankshaft. Drive it to neighbors house and we pulled the engine and replaces the crank now once installed car is not getting any...


I ASSUME its a 2.2l VIN "4"? Better be SURE you put in the correct crank. Different years have different tone wheels for the Crank Sensor. If it ran before, it should run now. I think 2 wire connector is for power to coils Power to Pink wire comes from IGN fuse A. Pink is 12V, Black is ground, 6 wire plug is for ICM.(bolted to base of coil pack) cant bench test anything. Should be a code 42 if cranked for 5 seconds and no start if its a CKP issue.

The crank angle sensor maybe bad. It sends a signal to the computer so the spark plugs fire up.
