My 92 Subaru would not start. New rotor, cap, replaced fuel filter. No gas getting to filter. When gas trickled in carb, runs like a top. I think the fuel pump out.

1994 Silverado died and has no spark or fuel.

Does your check engine light illuminate in the run position, key on engine off? It should do a "bulb check" by illuminating key on engine off. If it does, now would be a good time to scan it for trouble codes. If it does not illuminate, and you cannot communicate with the ecm/pcm with a scan tool, you need to start by locating a wiring diagram of your ecm, or pcm, whichever it contains. Once you've located a wiring diagram its time to find your ecm/pcm, remove the electrical connector and start checking your powers and grounds to the ecm/pcm. Use a test light that has a significant amp draw to test your power feeds, an ohm meter can deceive you by showing 12v, but that wire may be cracked and full of corrosion, preventing sufficient current flow. You can use this same method to test the integrity of your ecm/pcm grounds by connecting the end of your test light to positive battery voltage, and touching the tip to the ground pins of the connector. If you have good power and grounds, the fault lies within the ecm/pcm.

96 grand cherokee 4.0 was would lose power then pick back up was idleing really ruff shut off went back after acouple of hours tried to start then just died won,t start no spark replaced coil wire cap and...

A very similar experience happened yesterday with my son's '95 Cherokee Country, same 4.0L engine. Suddenly jerking, trying to die, then catching again. When he stopped and turned the car off, just like yours, wouldn't start and no spark...and in his case, bad fuel pump, too.
After changing that, we started looking for the no spark problem. First checked the dark green wire (+, or the power feed) to the coil, and nothing there with key on. No voltage. Strange, so I went back and rechecked all the fuses in the little box by the battery. All good (a very easy way to check a fuse is with a testlight: Just clip the lead on the negative battery post and, with key on, use the probe to touch the little slot on each end of the fuse. When ignition key is on, all fuses are powered, and if the testlight lights up on both ends of the fuse, you know it's a good fuse. You don't have to pull it out to check it- it's good.) So fuses were good, and I even swapped relays for the Auto Shutdown Relay, wondering if that could cause no signal to the coil. Still nothing. Because it is so easy to check on a Jeep, I checked another thing that may cause a no start, no spark condition: the Crank Position Sensor. On the rear top of the engine, right above the end of the intake manifold, is the three wire electrical connector for the CPS. To check the sensor, pull the connector apart, and on the sensor side of the connector, check for continuity (with an ohmmeter) between terminals B and C (marked on the connector-although mine weren't). There should be no continuity. That's the only test given for the Jeep's Crank Position Sensor.
Well, in my case it turned out to be a badly mangled pick-up coil assembly inside the distributor. That helps the computer determine crankshaft position and adjust spark timing. You need to start as I did with checking for power to the coil. If you have power there on the green wire with the key on, then start by checking the coil-it can be tested, then check the ignition control module-test it at a parts store, next check the two sensors -CPS and the pick-up coil (on earlier models was referred to as the cam position sensor). The distributor is a pain to remove and install, if you have to.. You may need to consult a repair manual for proper installation. I hope you find your problem. One last tidbit: this is my son's second Jeep he bought with the motor mount on the passenger side (right by the distributor) missing all the bolts for the mount's bracket onto the engine block. It made the engine sag to that side, and may have bumped the distributor housing hard enough to destroy his pickup coil. So do check your engine mount on that side.od luck.

My 1998 Dodge Durango won't start. No spark

check for power at the coil. There should be power anytime the engine is cranking. If there is no power let me know and i'll get you some more info.

If there is power check for pulse on the other wire. If there is pulse than replace the coil.

if there is no pulse I can get you more info on that as well.
