SOURCE: why is there No Spark in a 1991 Buick Lesabre

ECM would be the next part. Check the number on it . If it has the number 1228253 replace it anyway because they give a cutting off problem. Clean battery cables all three and replace bolts too.

The ignition module is under the coils. It is what the coils plug on to. To replace it removal all the coils and unplug it.

I have a 2003 dodge neon sxt. Will start and run fine then drive for awhile shut it off then it just cranks won't start till it has cooled down

The 1st thing that needs to be done here is to have the PCM (powertrain control module) scanned for both active and stored codes as well as a running test.

No fire in coil pack.

Was the timing chain damaged ?
Did you have spark from the coil before you replaced the other parts ?
Do you have battery voltage on the positive side of the coil with the key on and in crank mode ?
Is the coil wire not sparking, or are you not getting spark at the plugs ?
Is the distributor rotor turning when you crank the engine ?

95 vilager 3.0 die when its hot out. when i let it cool it wiil run for awhile, any time its 86 degrees or hotter i have this problems not sure (ignition mod, coolent sensor, weak fulpump, vaperlock)

When it dies you need to figure out what is missing, ie fuel pressure, spark, tour are probly losing spark when it occurs pull of on of the plug wires at the coil and have someone crank the engine while you hold that wire 1/4 inch away from being plugged in not touching but close, see if the spark jumps this gap, of not you have either a failing coil pack, or a bad crankshaft position sensor, I would start with the coil, please rate or leave feedback good luck

Its posible it could be the cam shaft or crank shaft positioning sensor you may be better off renting a OBD 2 scanner and get a code that would get you closer to the problem.

Check the crankshaft sensor or read codes off of the OBD-II system to see if that describes a problem that would cause the car to crank but not start and run on its own.

1991 Buick Park Avenue Ultra dies while driving. replaced crank sensor, coil pack wiring harness. oil pressure guage flies back & forth

It is most likely a sensor. It is common in these. You may check them with an ohmmeter.
You may also test relays the same way.

A vehicle needs gas and spark to run. One of them is not getting to motor. You can check fuel pressure on test port on fuel rail for fuel.
You can pull off a spark plug, plug it back into wire, lay it on top of motor, have someone else crank, while you watch for spark, Put back in, move to next plug wire.

1999 chevy malibu, stalls, no restart after getting to running temperture. fuel ok, cranks but misfires when hot. cools down and starts. runs good cold. crank sensors ok

Sounds to be a bad ignition module or one of the coil packs. Will need a scan tool to know what cylinder (s) are misfiring in order to narrow it down.

Will crank but won't start

I have seen a lot of trouble with coil packs lately. The first thing I would do is put a coil back on that I knew would make the motor run. It would not surprise me to hear that the new one is also bad. I don't think I would buy a new one until I was sure that the one on the car is bad. my suggestion is a no-cost method to know for sure.
If that does not work I would get a gauge and check the fuel pressure.
Also check to see that the timing belt is not broken. Look in the oil cap filler to see if the valve train moves while someone cranks the motor.
This will keep you busy for a while. Let me know what happens.
