I would not jump to the conclusion that this is a starter problem. This is more of an ignition problem. Check ignition circuit for open. Make sure the fuel delivery system is working (fuel pump etc). Check your engine management system for error diagnosis using some type of OBD II device.

Check fuel pressure. check crankshaft position sensor,cam shaft position sensor. you can use a ODBII diganostic tester to simplifythe task of extracting the trouble codes

No grounding of fuel pump in 1996 eldorado


The pump relay is grounded by the computer.
The actual pump is grounded thru the harness coming out of the tank.
The computer grounds the pump relay for three seconds when the engine is cranked and more if it sees oil pressure or RPM.
If the engine does not start, the relay gets no ground signal.

Northstar Engine


First NORTHSTAR ( 1992 ) engines were quite troublesome, from faulty starters ( in the middle of the engine ) to loss of oil pressure.
