It is very likely the fuel pump in the gas tank has failed check the fuel pressure, u do this at the test port on the top of the engine near the fuel injector supply tube, it looks like a metal tire stem.

The engine will not turn over, crank senor maybe


MAYBE? It could be many other things too. Do you have spark, gas from the injectors, fuel pressure, does the engine turn (combustion), exhaust pressure. Start by scanning the computer, any codes to work with? Do you smell gas,Then try pulling the plugs, wet w/ gas? Maybe loss of spark. Checking for spark & to ck the fuel injectors require specialized equipment. I cant go any further unless you are equipped. Getting back to your original question, yes I've changed many crank sensors for no start problems. Have it ckd before you just throw money out the window. Good luck

Have a 1991 bonneville le has to sit for a few hours before it will restart


You may need to check fuel pressure after the engine warms up and shuts off. Maybe the fuel pump gets hot and stops. Have you checked for spark after it dies?

Have changed to crankshaft sensor the oxygen sensor spark plugs and wire and wont start even when it is turning over


Borrow a fuel pressure tester from Auto Zone and test the fuel system. It could be that you have a bad fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator. It also could be a plugged fuel filter.

2000 Pontiac sunfire 2.2 got code 1137. How do I fix. Car won't start. I changed o2 sensor.


The 1137 OBD2 code is typically an o2 sensor problem as you have indicated, first I would make sure your replacing the correct o2 sensor as there are two (upstream and downstream), although it is possible that a bad o2 sensor could keep your engines fuel injection system from delivering the fuel to your engine, in my experience having a bad sensor typically results in a check engine light and running with a less than optimum fuel air mixture, it does not typically keep your vehicle from starting. If your still getting the 1137 error code after replace the o2 sensor and checking its connecting wires I would start looking for a bigger issue.

Try checking the oil, the low oil sensor will disable the ignition

Before you threw a bunch of parts at it maybe you should at least see if it has spark. If it doesn't have spark then the crank sensor and coil pack would be appropriate. If it is not getting fuel then the fuel pump, filter, etc. would be the way to go. So see if there is spark, do this by pulling a spark plug and see if there is spark out the end with it plugged into the wire and cranking it over. If there is spark put all this back together and squirt some fuel into the throttle body while cranking it over, if it tries to start but doesn't try to start on its own without squirting fuel in it then the fuel pump is bad. How many miles on it? Possibly the cam timing is off. Maybe take a compression check and see if the cam is out of time.

Has a mist in motor


A miss or mist? If it is mist, possibly radiator hose, heater hose, oil sending unit. What kind of fluid is it? If it is a miss then first thing would be change the spark plugs if they haven't been changed in a while. If it keeps missing after that try pulling the spark plug wires one at a time with some spark plug wire pliers. If you pull one and it doesn't make a difference then that is the cylinder that isn't working. Put a spark plug in that wire and see if it is firing by grounding the base of spark plug and watching it. If it doesn't fire first try putting on a spark plug wire, if that doesn't fix it, you must have a bad coil pack. If you have spark when doing the test above then maybe an injector that isn't working. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.
