Crank sensor bad maybe - this is what provides the timing for the ignition system
bad -sensor = no spark every time...
The sensor is on the crank case near the crank pulley.

No start no fuel or spark

What about your ignition module? I can't tell if you just replaced coils or ignition module included? Also, before buying anything, check voltage and ground for ignition module. Pink wire is voltage, black wire is ground.

The crank sensor sends ac signal to ignition module, the module converts signal to dc, something the computer can handle, then sends rpm signal to computer.

Tyhe first thing you shd always do on any car with starting problems is to check the spark on the plugs to localize the problem to either fuel or ignition problem. If u have an old spark plug lying around, remove one spark plug wire and attach it to the plug and lay it against the block. If it fires, when the engine turns, then it will most likely be fuel problem.
If it turns out to be fuel problem, you can prove it by using starting fluid carefully into the breather area.

I have a 89 cavalier z 24 the car will start cold and wont rev past 3000 rpms and when it gets hot it wont start ive checkd for all ignition components and check out fine i put a new fuel pump,regulater...

Does it have any pressure from the spark plugs?
Take out a spark plug, and a tool that can measure the pressure from the pistons. I myself used my finger, it won't hurt you if there is no pressure, but if that is not the problem, the pressure could hurt your finger.
But do try that or let a mechanic check for the pressure to the spark plugs.

I have a 2003 taho it won't start and won't turn over

check the fuel pressure at the TBI there will be a little schreader valve that looks like abicycleeinner tubee where you put air in, When you find that get someone to try and start it and while they are doing that push in on the schreader valve and it should spray gas out of it, if itdoesn'tt then it is your fuel pump.

If their is no spark,replace the ignition module at the inside base of the distributor.If you have spark then it could be a plugged fuel filter or a problem with the fuel line inside the Gas tank.Worst case needs a new engine. spray a shot of starting fluid in to see if its getting fuel. if it still doesn't pop over its an ignition problem. first test to see if there is power at the ignition coil. if yes pull a plug and lay it on the block hooked up to its plug wire and have someone crank it while you watch for spark.(put on the new plug wires),if no spark the module is shot. one of the solutions above should do it. Take care and good luck on it.

Car quit running thought it was fuel filter put a new on but it did not solve the problem, so put on a fuel filter still no go then put on crank shaft censor still sitting someone said that since theft...

Theft light is it flashing, if it is that's the problem, get in car turn key to on wait about 10mim or so till light stop's flashing, turn key to off then start car. also check for fuel pressure up on fuel rail, if you have fuel pressure not theft system, also check for spark at spark plug or coil pack's which ever easier to check, if no spark possible bad crankshaft sensor, could be a bad coil pack or ignition module but it would still start but with a bad miss.
