97 oldsmobile achieva wont fire changed coil pack spark plugs cam sensor still wont start

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
If you having a problem with more than one system, I want to check for rpm signal, that usually comes from the crank sensor. Not sure why you replaced cam sensor? I always want to check sensor wiring circuits before replacing anything. Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.

Engine turns over but wont start no spark in plugs

Check the IGn fuses.
At the ignition coils check for power on the BLK/RED wires with the ignition switch ON.
Check for ground on the BLK wires on both coils.

2003 gmc savanna, wont start, new fuel pump and ignition cylinder, I turned key to on position, let sit for 15 min and still wont start just turns over

Find fuel test valve in fuel rail on top of engine. Take cap off valve. Turn key on. Push down valve with screw driver. fuel should squirt out. If not check fuse fuel pressure relay and bad wires. If fuel does come out, remove a spark plug from engine. Connect plug wire to plug. Ground plug against engine. Crank over engine and look for spark.

00 bravada turns over but wont start. Just had tune up fuel filter change. They said they checked fuel pressure and was good. Could it be coil?

If you want to check to see if you are getting spark - remove a spark plug and reconnect the plug wire. Be sure the plug is grounded to a good ground on the engine and try to start the eng. If there is spark seen at the electrode of the spark plug then it is not your ignition system (as far as spark goes) If you do not see spark it could be your coil or possible your ignition module (in distributor) I'm guessing you have an ignition mod - you do not mention the eng you have.

The mechanic should check the entire electrical parts of the car .Because of electrical problem , check the wires , the fuses , the ignition switch , the alternator solenoid,the ignition coil ,the battery , the distributor assembly , the spark plug ,spark plug cables , and the bulb lights .check if there are worn out or burned or destroyed wires or spare parts of the car. You have to replace theme if cannot be repaired .And also check if there are grounded wires because these may give worn out or burned spare parts or wires .after checking look for loose wires then re connect them so that electricity will flow to the car .The over heat of the car is caused of grounded wires or spare parts malfunctioned.

Wont start

Do you have fuel pressure?? There should be a service port located on rear of engine fuel rail.

Weak spark + 1988 ford bronco

check the voltage of the b+ terminal of the ignition coil (primary side) with a cheap multimeter while cranking. low voltage to the primary will cause low voltage on the secondary. also recheck all ground paths from the ignition module. ensure good connection from coil to module. note: new parts are not "known good parts" until it runs.--> IG.MOD.
