If you are hearing a click and starter does not move the engine.
most likely the New battery has lost its charge due to a short to ground somewhere. It may also mean that you have a bad
solenoid on the starter even though you replaced the starter (this
seems to be a frequent problem). You may have bad connections (corroded terminals on the battery) and similar corrosion on other critical connections. Double check all of the connections you changed, its possible one is loose, or not connected, or in the wrong place. Make sure all connections are cleaned, sanded or scraped to bright metal. The inside of the battery cable clamps.
can make the difference between a start and not, also will interfere with proper charging by the new alternator.

You have a lot going on here , let's clarify a little ! The engine cranks over when you turn the key ? You sure have been busy replacing parts ! If it cranks over did you check for spark at the spark plugs ? An did you test for fuel pressure ? an does it have compression ? No Start Diagnostic Basics EricTheCarGuy

You've already eliminated the spark plug & wireset, distributor cap & rotor.
Sounds like your car needs a tune-up, specifically, the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve, and/of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.

Components checked/replaced during a tune-up are:
air filter
motor oil
motor oil filter
breather filter
fuel filter(s)
fuel strainer
PCV valve
EGR valve
spark plugs
spark plug wires
ECM or distributor cap & rotor
cabin air filter
transmission oil filter
transmission oil
engine coolant
check all vacuum hoses and lines

Troubleshooting the no-start condition - from the 1990 Mitsu Mighty Max Repair Manual:

Priority Action Part Type -- Cause
1 Inspect Battery -- Battery Discharged or Faulty.
2 Inspect Battery Cable -- Corroded, Broken, Shorted or Poorly Connected Battery Cable.
3 Inspect Distributor Cap -- Distributor Cap Cracked or Burned.
3 Inspect Fuel Filter -- Clogged or Dirty Fuel Filter.
5 Inspect Ignition Coil -- Faulty Ignition Coil.
6 Inspect Wireset -- Worn, Damaged or Faulty Spark Plug Wire(s).
7 Inspect Spark Plug -- Incorrectly Gapped or Fouled Spark Plug(s).
8 Inspect Starter -- Starter Motor Faulty.
9 Inspect Fuel Pump -- Low Fuel Pressure.
10 Inspect Solenoid Switch -- Faulty Starter Solenoid Switch.
11 Inspect Fuel Pump Relay -- Faulty Fuel Pump Relay.
12 Inspect Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator -- Faulty Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator.
13 Inspect Ignition Switch -- Improperly Connected or Faulty Ignition Switch.
14 Inspect Starter Drive -- Faulty Starter Drive.
15 Inspect Fuel Injector -- Dirty or Worn Fuel Injectors.
16 Inspect Fuel Pump Strainer -- Clogged or Dirty Fuel Pump Strainerat.
17 Inspect Engine Control Computer -- Incorrect Operating Information Being Delivered and Sent From The EEC.
18 Inspect Fuel Tank -- Fuel Tank Empty.
19 Inspect Carburetor -- Carburetor Flooded or Faulty Choke.
20 Inspect Distributor -- Worn, Loose, or Incorrectly Installed Distributor.

My car wont start and i already put a new batterie and a new starter what else could be the problem?


With this tiny bit of info, it is really hard to tell. Will it fire? Will it even turn over? Is it getting fuel? Are the plugs in good shape? Are the plug wires in good shape? I would change the plugs, the plug wires, check to make sure your fuel pump is functioning, and change your fuel filter. Also, if you have an old style cap and rotor distributor, check the copper points. If they are corroded, you need to clean them. If you have a distributor block, you might need to replace a coil. Also, on late model Toyotas, inside the distributor cap, there is an ignition coil. My Toyota Camry 1992 died driving down the road. I changed the ignition coil and had to rotate the distributor cap and it finally started. All things mentioned could be the culprit. Trial and error, I'm afraid, is the best way to go. Start with the cheapest stuff and then progress forward.

93 jeep cherokee , iv got spark at the coil but not at the plug just replced cap, roter, wires, but still notheing got any ides ?


Coil may be producing low voltage (KVs) to where it makes enough energy to snap out of the coil tower but then supressed as it travels down the high tension leads finally to the plug. Incidentally spark plug leads should have about 10k ohms of resistance per foot.I good coil will jump spark at least a half inch if you pull the wire off the cap and produce this much air gap
