1991 Chevy Lumina Euro 3.1liter will not start - no spark. Solution?

    Mileage is about 100,000. There is no spark from any of the three coils. It is fuel injected, and a slight gas odor is smelled by the tail pipe (so it evidently is getting fuel, but no spark). Can the ignition module and/or the crank sensor be tested?

    You were correct - it was the ignition module. Thanks!

This could be caused by a number of factors; Ignition coil, ignition module and/or defective plug wires. How many miles are on the vehicle???

    Are you getting any engine codes or engine light on??? There may be a delay in my responding to your answer. If no codes or engine light, replace the ignition module.

While driving down the highway my 1991 chevy lumina euro died so I coasted to the side of the road and tried to restart it and all it would do is crank over and not start.had to have it towed thanks

three thing make an engine run---air---fuel---spark any one of these are missing---engine will not run---if you have a timing belt, it may have give up the ghost but you need to check these things out to determine the issue---no magic wand here just facts---GL

Check that you're getting spark to your plugs and fuel to your injectors. If so, my first guess would be to check your timing belt.
