If you are getting spark then it may be a fuel pump problem or fuel pump relay or inline fuse. Always start Fuel system troubleshooting by replacing the fuel filter or filters! You may be able to apply 12 volts from the battery (use a fused line) directly to the 12 volt side of the fuel pump and listen to see if the pump runs. Also may need to check that it is getting a good ground to the fuel pump. Then if the fuel pump does not run independently, replace the fuel pump. The fuel pump relay is computer controlled and several other things give the computer inputs which then controls the voltage to the fuel pump relay.

My 98;jimmy will not start engine turns but will not turn on


check for spark at the plugs then check for fuel. if one of these are missing the car won`t start. common problem on some of these was the ignition module in the distributor and sometimes the pickup coil wires would break. another thing to check is the distributor cap and rotor for damage like a cracked cap or burnt through rotor. fuel pump were also common.

Several things can cause this problem, cracked distributor cap, old ignition rotor. Or if you have coil packs, cracked coil pack, ignition control module, crank position sensor, cam position sensor. Coil pack parts and sensors can be checked by autozone, cap and rotor will have corrosion on the rotor, however a small crack in the distributor cap can be next to impossible to see, replacement is usually best option.
