Check spark to #4 cyl if it is almost constant bad cap and button by gm parts clean ground to chassis connection . The #2,3,5 arc to # 4 due to cap design check with timing light 1 and 6 are direct feed in cap . Hope this helps .

CHECK TO SEE IF YOU ARE GETTING SPARK TO ONE OF THE PLUG WIRES .I USE ANOTHER PLUG IN IT AND LAY IT ON THE ENGINE TO GET GOOD GROUND.DON'T TOUCH IT WHILE TURNING THE ENGINE OVER MAY SHOCK YOU. THE CRANK SENSOR DOWN BY THE BALANCER MAY BE BAD IF THERE IS NO SPARK AT THE PLUG.CHECK ENGINE LIGHT SHOULD TELL YOU A CODE FOR THIS.

You may have a dying cell in the battery. It will charge and seem OK but won't stay charged for long. Try a load test of the battery

My family van is a 2002 Safari van would not start last night, when we tried jumping it still would not start. We even tried starter fluid! My dad thinks that the gas froze from the ethanol and is frozen...


But it should start if you put the Starting fluid in. Is there any spark at the plugs ? Try to pull the one of the spark plugs wires and put it close to a metal space then crank it again and see if there is any spark , You can hear it sparking.
