Question about 1994 Pontiac Grand Am
How can i determine if the engine is getting gas and if the spark plugs spark?
One suggestion I can make to see if your car is getting spark is by purchasing an in-line spark tester from an auto parts store (not very expensive) and pulling each spark plug wire off and checking with the tester.
If you are getting spark to every wire and they all seem to be the same brightness, try replacing your spark plugs with the recommended plugs and setting the gap with a spark plug gapper.
To see if you are getting fuel to each cylinder, try to start the car a few times with the fuel pedal to the floor (for fuel injected engines) to clear a flooded engine and then pull the spark plugs out of the engine and smell them to see if you can smell fuel, if there isn't a strong scent of fuel, you may not be getting fuel and you'd probably need to take your car to a mechanic to have them check the fuel system and injectors.
I hope I could help you get started to narrow down the problem. Good luck and don't forget to rate! Thank you.
