Question about 1998 Chevrolet Metro
I have the 1.0 3cylinder engine. I have replaced the distributor(which includes the pick up coil) coil, cap and rotor, plugs, wires, ignition control module, checked the timing both at the crankshaft and camshaft as well as at top dead center with the rotor pointing at the #1 spark plug on the distributor cap. I know that it is getting fuel as I have seen the fuel at the throttle body and have inspected the plugs after cranking several times in which they are wet. I have also added a small amount of fuel at the throttle body just in case. I am not sure where to turn to next. I have also checked for trouble codes and none are present. The check engine light was not on when I parked the car. Any help would be appreciated.
I would go to your local repository (large) library and get the factory service manual (not Haines or Chilton or Motors) to review the trouble shooting charts. This one is going to require specific knowledge of the vehicle wiring and components used, if you've done everything you say you've done.

Welcome to Fixya! Check the Starter Relay under the Hood in the Relay Box. There could actually be a couple of relays that could have gone bad. Locate a Relay that you know to be good and swap around a bit. Let me know what you get!
