I have a 2000 Saturn Ls1. Won't start. I have spark at all 4 plugs, fuel is present at the fuel rail, fuses and relays appear to be good. What could be preventing it from starting now?


DO THE SPARKS HAPPEN AT THE RIGHT TIMING OF THE CRANK?
TRY TO START IT WHILE SPRAYING STARTER FUEL INTO THE AIR FILTER. THAT WILL NARROW THE SCOPE.

Sounds as though the battery is no good,
unless you know otherwise & also had it tested
Charging a battery doesn't address it's internal
condition
You have battery cables that corrode inside & can be
voltage drop tested
You have the starter & solenoid,ignition sw & such, to name
a few,lots of possible causes & things to check

Your best bet is to find a good repair shop

I know where your going here and respect your
wanting to do all your own work

You can not solve these issues by changing
parts, until you get to the real issue,which you
may not.

Have you checked fuel pressure or tested
the fuel pump in any way?

99` saturn won`t start. I checked the fuel pump, it has spark,


Have you checked if your getting spark. You can do this by removing a plug and having someone hit the key for you. watch the spark plug don't touch it or you will get zapped. If you see a strong spark you should be good. Do this for all plugs. Alternatively you can try the crank position sensor this should be mounted between the intake manifold and the starter. Follow the wires to the location and unscrew the sensor.

If that is not the problem and your getting spark and gas to the cylinders. Let me know

If it won't fire off of starting fluid,time to check for spark.Remove a plug wire from a plug,and insert into the boot a medium sized phillips head screwdriver.Snap the screwdriver in,and lay it somewhere near a ground source,within a 1/4" from the ground source,but not touching it.Have someone crank the car over while you LOOK for a spark arcing from the screwdriver to the ground source.Do not hold the screwdriver as you may get a JOLT if you do.If no spark at all,try another plug wire.If no spark,you have an ignition problem.
