    not sure will check it today. I am assuming so as I checked all the fuseab links and the fuse box all checked out good. I will crawl under it again today and test each wire to see if I have any hot lines with the key on.

Crank position sensor would be my guess.
Its located the center, rear engine area, mounted in the block below the ignition coil pack and DIS module.My guess is that's your culprit.

2005 cavalier turns over wont start plugs were no good put new plugs in used dielectric grade on plugs still won't start could I have put to much dielectric grease on plug wires


Trying to start the vehicle is there spark ? Your vehicle has plugs under center of valve cover .Pull the coil pack out , get plug wire cable set and use a spark tester . Check for spark . If plugs were no good you probably fried the ICM - ignition control module . Do you know what and where ICM is ?

No spark on cyl 3 and 4


What engine ? 2.2 l or 2.4 L. You don't say if any codes are set. no P0303 - P0304 cylinder's 3 & 4 misfire ? or any other ? No the cam sensor wouldn't cause just two cylinders to misfire. The PCM triggers the ICM to turn on an off coil's to build up an collapse the primary voltage inducing the secondary voltage . This engine is equipped with a non-distributor ignition system called the electronic ignition (EI) system. The primary circuit of the EI system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Two separate ignition coils

?€¢
An electronic ignition control module (ICM)

?€¢
A crankshaft position (CKP) sensor

?€¢
Related connecting wires

?€¢
The ignition control (IC) portion of the powertrain control module (PCM)
Important: The camshaft position (CMP) sensor is only used for a misfire detection. It is not part of the ignition system. !

There is no spark thus car won't start. the battery is fine, it turns over good, it is not flooded, the spark plugs are new, the ignition coil was just replaced, what else controls the spark


The Crankshaft Position Sensor and the Ignition Control Module also control the spark. It depends on whether your vehicle is equipped with the 2.2L engine or the 2.4L engine as to where these components are located and what they look like.

1993 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 not firing on 2 cylinders


you can test it but removing wires on the coil. they should have same strength as 1 and 4. if they are weaker then you have a bad coil. if nothing happens your have a bad module.
if you want put the 1,4 coil on the suspected bad tabs on the module and see if spark is same strength.that should do it. you pretty much did the right thing is swaping with what testing equipment you have to work with.
its most likely a bad module though. very common. when you test something always have someone explain how its tested and how it works.

1993 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 not firing on 2 cylinders


The reason I'm asking this is because a dual coil fires BOTH plugs at the same time. If one plug doesn't fire right, the other won't either, even to a point that neither does. Kepp the coils where they are and swap the plugs and wires and see if you have a change. Let me know

No spark cylider #2 & #3


First things first, is your check engine light on and have you had the codes read off of it? The problem most likely is the module but it could be other things too. It is always better to do all the diagnosis you can before just throwing parts at it. At least pick up a manual for the car that should tell you how to diagnose different parts.
