Where is the crank sensor located on a 88 suburban v10. Does it even have one?

No crank sensor on the 5.7 liter. The ignition system uses a pickup coil, module, and computer to provide spark.

I have a 88 chevrolet suburban it sputters when i accelerate

It could be an ignition problem, or low fuel pressure.
If the spark plugs and ignition system are in good condition, I would check fuel pressure and the filter.
If the throttle position sensor is failing, the check engine light should be on.

What happens if the ignition goes out?

Are you sure that it is not related to your fuel system? If so then it would be related to your ignition system. Things to check are plugs, wires, cap, rotor, coil, ignition module, TP and IAC sensor.

Replaced entire ignition still no spark 88 305 ci

There are 3 possibilities. 1 the coil. 2 the ignition module. 3 the pick up coil. In my experience the ignition module is the most common cause. It is in the distributor held in with 2 screws. The coil and module can be tested at any parts house. Good Luck

try leaving the gas caps loose for a test. If it stays running, then you have a vacuum in the tanks.
report results of test.

Also, other possibility is that fuel is getting hot in tank and vaporizing in fuel lines. Listen at fuel tank for vapor being forced through check valve in tank. WIll sound like a zazoo.
