Remove the wire from the distributor and rest it
on top of the engine near metal so it can be
grounded,crank your engine and see if you are
getting spark from the coil! to the grounded part
on the other end.

ps/stay away from the spark it can be dangerous

Why am I not getting fuel threw the injector fuel pump is pumping

The diagram is for fuel injectors, the top wire is voltage, goes hot with the key on, any voltage? The bottom wire from injector is ground, controlled by computer. If no ground have to check for rpm signal. Engine cranking, you have spark at the plugs and proper fuel pressure?

#1 spark plug not firing on 1993 chevy lumina

IF the spark plug is new
test the wire itself with an ohm meter
test the coil with an ohm meter

If spark plug is not new, try switching it with another cylinder to see if it is the plug

Should be able to isolate it
Best regards

I have a 1993 chevy lumina. will not start, has good fuel pressure, good spark, it will start if i put fuel in the throttle body then dies when the fuel burns up cant figure it out

check for injection pulses at the injectors.
Each injector has two wires, one is a supply (12Volt) and the other is grounded by the engine management unit. The switching is very fast so you would not detect it with a test light. Try a multimeter set to frequency. If you check the supply to the injectors, disconnect ALL of them at once. You should have power to only one wire at each injector plug. If no power is present, check the fuel system relays and fuses.

1993 lumina stalling

Free things to try: Take it to Auto Zone or some auto parts store and they can check the battery, alternator, and hook the thing to their computer to look for trouble codes for you.

Things you have to pay for: Take it to the auto shop and have them check the timing, spark plugs, and they can translate the trouble codes into language you understand.
