I would guess that the ECM may have stored something that might help you to figure this out. Do a compression test. If the timing is off you may see it because the valves are opening and closing at the wrong time.
Check the level of the oil and the anti-freeze.
With the sensors and all, without a scan-tool it will take much longer to figure out if this has to do with something controlled or monitored by the ECM.

Wont start


Are you getting spark to the plugs ?
Is the fuel pressure in the normal range ?
Any chance the timing belt has jumped a tooth or two ?
Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a long list of possible issues. You'll have to narrow it down to fuel or spark to proceed.

How to fix a1998 buick century to start fuel filter new and airfilter turning over but not starting gets gas


Did you check for spark? It sounds like you're not getting spark. Check for spark. If you are not getting spark then it sounds like you might have to replace the coil packs. Is it running a L4 engine? If its running a standard chevy L4 its probably the coil packs. Try to replace them check again for spark.

Engine cutoff while driving . Wont start acts like it is not getting fuel.


As per the problem it indicates that its a fuel problem.Get the fuel pressure checked.If its low then this problem is related to faulty fuel pump and also the clogged fuel filter.Also there are other possibilities,that has to be checked.

A car that cranks over but doesn't start, in many cases will be due to a bad fuel pump, a broken timing belt, an inoperative cam sensor or crank sensor. Also this problems are related to faulty spark plug. Check the spark at spark plugs when you start the car. Do you notice any spark. Actually you should see. If in case there is no spark then it's a spark plug problem. Also the coil pack gives power to spark plug. So check the voltage at coil pack. It will show 12 volt.If there is no voltage noticed at coil pack then its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced.If all the possible options checked out ok then check the car starter. The starter gets power from battery to start the care. If the starter is faulty then it will not let the car to start. Also check and confirm that there is fuel in the car. If it very low fuel then in some cases this causes the problem. Also check and confirm that fuel pump is functioning properly and the fuel filter is not clogged. One of the easiest ways to check for a fuel pump related problem is to spray a little starting fluid into the air intake while trying to start the car. If the car starts momentarily, then there's a good chance the fuel pump is not working or the car is out of gas. You can also listen for the fuel pump's humming sound when the key is first turned on. Also if a inoperative fuel pump is suspected, a good technician will always check to verify there is power and ground being supplied to the pump, to eliminate the possibility of a bad relay or electrical issue. Fuel pressure can be checked with a pressure gage and if there is pressure, pulse can be checked at the fuel injectors in several ways including the most common, with the use of noid lights. If the injectors don't have pulse the engine won't start. ---------- This troubleshooting tips will help you to solve the problem.Thanks.Helpmech.
