SOURCE: 2003 chev malibu wont start due to lack of spark

That car has 2 crank sensors , did you replace both? One is at the front crank pulley and the other is behind and low on the engine block, above oil pan. Be sure the ICM (ign control module has a good ground, (black wire) it grounds at a bracket where the trans bolts to the engine approx at the 2 o'clock position.

SOURCE: 1-4 misfire

I'd say you need to replace the 1-4 coil pack. Any changes to the working of the pack have to be tested after the primary source with much more elaborate equipment. The coil pack is easy to replace and will save time and money for testing. Thanks, Dana

It is getting gas and fire put new plugs and wires the fire is weak but still will not start

By "fire," I assume you may mean SPARK. If the spark is weak, replace the coil pack.

2003 PT Cruiser, distributorless, 2.4L, non-turbo, no spark. I have replaced coil, spark plug wires, spark plugs, ASD relay

I think there is an ignition module which can be removed and tested. These fail quite often. Parts store can often test these.

Crank sensor controls fuel not sprark. Check the cam sensor, this sensor is usually on the head of the engine. Check for this sensor on the top left or right sides of the engine (it depends if turbo/none turbo). Another issue that may cause no spark is failed ignition coil. The ignition coil is on top of the engine, with 4 wires routing to the spark plugs. Hopefully this helps!!
