Hello!
Looking at the brief description given, You say no fire at the distributor? With the cap off does the rotor turn when engine cranked? Also surely you have electronic ignition? so do you mean Spark at coil/plugs?
Although you are getting fuel to the intake this is supplied via electric fuel pump, if the rotor doesn't turn you may have a broken/snapped timing Belt/chain.
When cranking does the engine turn over easier than before? also does it sound like someones taken the plugs out?
I hope this helps, Let me know more if you can't suss it.

I have a 96 Suburban 7.4. I was driving a month ago and stopped at the light. When I pushed the gas it lunged and quit. I have changed the timing chain and gears, Plugs, Wires, Cap, Rotor, Cam Sensor,...


Have you tried boosting fuel supply by spraying carb cleaner into the intake ?
Is it possible the cam is not in time with the crank ? Or the distributor is off a few teeth ? Does it make any difference if you turn the distributor ?

Just because it get fuel,but does the fuel injector pulse? Add fuel in the throttle body if it wants to start your problem and solution will resie in bringing the fuel injector to working level

I was driving and the car cut off. It won't start but it cranks and won't turn over.It is a 1995 Olds Cutlass Ciera SL, 6 Cylinder.


your terminology is wrong.if it cranks its turning over what you mean is it won`t start(fire up) as you said at the beginning.anyways it sounds like you could have a fuel pump problem that stop working.this happens alot.you should check for spark at the plugs to make sure its not an ignition problem.did you notice a check engine light on when it was running.if so there will be a code in the ecm and may be the cause of your problem.

I have a 94 S10 blazer/Tahoe "yes It is" engine code W with a no start problem. I thought it was the Fuel pump, But after replacing it the vehicle won't start. It is getting spark and if I...


if no crank sensor by timing cover, some vehicles are controlled at the distributor. the 95-96 have sensor by cover . before 1995 this its controlled by distributor. there is no "crank sensor" on that engine the pick-up coil inside the distributor acts as the crank reference for that engine. have a good day !! 4.3 vortex engine.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

My 90 acura integra wont start it turns over but wont fire i changed the distributor,and spark plugs,i am getting fuel but it just cranks and cranks but wont start,the cause i dont know was driving down...


Well, something is missing. Your engine needs fuel, ignition, and compression to run. You need to findout which of these systems is malfunctioning before anybody can tell you why your engine won't start.
If there is no spark, I would check the ignitor in the distributor first. There are other possible causes, but this isthe most common.

If there is no fuel, I would suspect a bad fuel pump. (you can check this by spraying a SMALL amount of starting fluid in the intake and see if the engine fires.

If there is no spark and no fuel, I would suspect a broken timing belt.

Good battery, good starter. Leaves spark and fuel.
1. Remove 1 spark plug wire from a plug. Hold near engine block while someone "cranks" the engine.
- Spark (yes/no)
If yes, issue is fuel. If no, remove distributor cap and check for cracks. Also clean inside to remove rust and dirt. Besure that inside of distributor cap is reasonably clean and rust free. After that, reinstall cap.
Try to start engine. IF it is exactly same symptom.....
Check input voltage to coil (high voltage source for distributor). Is 12volts present? If not, troubleshoot wiring between battery source and coil. Be sure to include the fuse for "ignition" in fuse box.
If yes.....Confirm high voltage is present at center (input) wire to distributor (CAUTION:- 30,000 volts could be present... do NOT touch bare wire.) Use insulated plyers or similar to place this center wire near engine block to check for spark. Note that this voltage source is powered on as soon as the ignition key is in the "run" position.

Replace coil if no high voltage is coming out. Replace distributor cap and rotor if high voltage is coming in to it, but not leaving and getting to spark plugs.

-------------
Confirm fuel is getting to intake.
I spray starting fluid into intake while cranking engine. It will "fire" if all else is good.
If it "pops" or fires, then you have a fuel feed problem... between tank and intake manifold, shoot fuel filter, fuel pump and otherwise confirm that gas is moving to intake from gas tank.

Good luck.
