If you have spark, try changing the fuel filter. If you don't have spark, get back to me.

SOURCE: no spark

Here are a couple of ideas. However, I think you've already covered most of them.

1. Remove the distributor cap and crank the car. If the rotor turns you're ok. If it doesn't turn then that's you're problem and you will probably need to change a timing belt/chain. (already done this)
2. Check the spark from the ignition coil by pulling the coil wire from the center of the distributor. Use an alligator clip to attach a short wire to the coil wire contact. Bare the other end of this short wire and set it up so it's sitting very close to the engine block. Turn off the lights and try to start the car. You should see a spark jump from this wire to the block. If you don't see a spark it's likely your ignition module (already changed) or ignition coil (could this be it?)is bad.
3. If you have a spark maybe it's not getting to the plugs. You may need to replace the distributor cap and rotor. (already done this) You can test if the plugs are sparking by pulling one, re-attaching the spark plug wire and seeing if you get a spark when you try to start the engine in the dark. Please note, the metal threads of the spark plug need to be shorted to the engine block to complete the circuit during this test.

Find out if there's gas going into your carburetor.
Your fuel lines could be stacked up.

You don't say if the parking lights and/or tail lights come on. If the rest of the lights are working. Try replacing the dimmer switch on the floor. It's relatively simple to do and cost about $15.00 depending on where you are

So i have a 1981 cadillac eldorado biarritz with a 368 cid i changed spark plug wires dis and rotor ig coil fuel pump fuel filter ecm and still not runing right idk what else to do the check engine lite is...


From your description it sounds as if you have insufficient current to support the electronics and lights . Check the condition and of the alternator drive belt. Have the alternator output checked . If you have continual jump starts then unless it is done correctly there is a chance that the ECM is damaged . But everything points to a low out put from the alternator

How about timing chain being worn & gears stripped ?

Put a timing light on it, then put the pick up on a wire
half way thru the firing order & see if they timing is
the same.
