SOURCE: 93 firebird formula wont start

A hall effect sensor senses a magnetic cylinder inside of a piston and sends an electronic signal to a processor. These are widely used in food/product packaging. I have a '93 formula myself and am unaware of any of these sensors on the car/engine.
Only thing I can think of is my firebird went through about 3 distributors in five years. So far the one in there now is running well. But you'll experience hard starts and stalls if this is tanking on ya.

Sound like a lack of fuel. Since you have replaced most of the ignition parts, I would look at the fuel system next.
Could be a clogged fuel filter, weak fuel pump, or pump relay.

Looks like you're engine's skipping and it could use a good tune-up, spark plug and wires, distributer cap and rotor, air and fuel filters and you should be in bisness.

check if you have a drain plug in your fuel tank, if none, then there is no easy way but to bring down the whole tank and remove the old fuel. be careful in handling fuel.
