Car is distributer-less. Try the coils and ICM.

Well I don't know where the computer is. For most vehicles they are found under the car deck area. But if ur not getting spark, that is usually due to the distributor. That is where the spark comes from. Look into that area. Distributor might be faulty

My 98 Cavalier was runnning great all the sudden every now and again it takes a couple turns to start, so i took it to Auto zone, they ran a test said everything looked good, and that I should change spark...

My guess would be two of the plug wires are on the wrong plugs.
The original problem could be a faulty fuel pump relay or the check valve in the fuel pump.

Car not starting or getting gas

Someone needs to check the fuel pump relay and the fuel pressure.
Could be electrical, the fuel filter, or a weak pump among other things.

I have changed the fuel pump twice on a 1998 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 Liter. I have also changed the fuel filter and the relay switch. The fuel pump wont kick on when I turn the key on.

The original Chevy pump motor has a good life. Running the vehicle out of fuel, which will actually run the pump in a dry state can shorten the expected life span considerably. Gasoline is a petroleum product and actually lubricates the inside of the fuel pump. The more you run the vehicle low on fuel or out of fuel, the more damage will occur and the quicker the pump will fail. Try replacing the pump and follow the above procedures for a good performance of the pumps. Cavalier fuel pumps available here

Tuned up a 1993 chevy cavalier has spark won't start

Spray aerosol carb cleaner into the throttle body while an assistant tries to start the engine. If it runs for a few seconds then quits, you are not getting fuel into the engine. Check the fuses. You might have blown the fuse for the fuel injectors (possible if you removed any of the injector harnesses) or the fuel pump relay.
