Most likely cause of this problem on GM vehicles with a distributor, is the ignition module.
To replace the ignition module. Remove distributor cap and rotor. Remove the two screws that hold the module to the distributor. Once removed you will need to clean the surface of the distributor where the module was sitting. There will be a small packet of dielectric grease with the new module. Apply an even coating to the backside of the module (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT). If you do not put it on the back of the module you will be buying a new module very shortly, as this one will burn up. Install module, distributor rotor and distributor cap. Plug in the module connector and start the vehicle. Hope this is helpful. Good luck.

Truck wont start engine turns but wont fire

If the trucks turns over and does not seem like the battery is dead I would assume it is spark or fuel. Check spark plugs to make sure they spark. Pull one plug at a time hold it against side of engine and have someone turn the truck over for you. You should see bright spark from all spark plugs. If you do see spark then check your Fuel Pump to make sure it is getting power and is opperating correctly also check your fuel filter to make sure it is not plugged. Good luck, Hope this helps.

My 2003 Ford truck turns over but wont fire up what could be the problem

check spark/fuel. easy way to check if there is no spark is remove a spark plug. If it is wet with fuel-no spark. To check spark, you can get a spark plug tester at any auto parts store. If no fuel, check the fuel pump relay, should be in the engine bay fuse box. Post back with your findings

There is no spark at all

If there is no spark at the spark plugs, check for spark coming out of the coil. If there is spark coming out of the coil, replace your distributor cap, rotor and spark plugs, and spark plug wires. (Do a tune up)
If there is no spark at the coil, the most likely cause would be the crank sensor or the ignition control module.

I have a 1998 gmc jimmy I have spark i have 61-66 psi of fuel pressure but it will not start

OK, you have spark at the spark plugs, right? You have more than adequate fuel pressure. Do you have fuel in the cylinders? Pull a spark plug to see if they are wet with gas. If you have spark at the plug and fuel in the cylinder, it should start. Is this a recent problem, or has the truck been sitting for a while.?

My truck is a 1996 1/2ton there is gas getting to the engine and there is spark in the spark plugs we fixed the distributor cap and checked all the spark plug wires, the truck will turn over but it will...

Hmm, This sounds like a timing problem.

Best way to do this easily is that:

Take out the #1 spark plug crank/tap motor over until air comes out of spark plug hole--compression stroke(this is "TDC"---Top Dead Center)

Remove Distrubutor cap and check and see if rotor points to #1 spark plug wire on cap----if not move the #1 spark plug wire to that position on cap---then install rest of spark plug wires according to the firing order from the #1 plug wire.

Install #1 spark plug and start truck---you may have to rotate distributor a little bit to get best performance.

Engine turns over butdoes not fire

check step by step to find the problem. You mean the spark plug has no spark, ok, remove the spark plug no.1 into a cable and try to spark between spark plug and the cable, and if no spark, remove the spark plug cable from the ignition coil, and spark between the cable and the ignition coil, if there's no spark, replace your ignition coil, because probably is dead. ok
