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.

My Blazer wont start. It turns over and acts like it wants to so its not the starter or battery. I checked the fuel pump that seems to be working fine.. Any suggestions

When was the last time you changed your plugs, fuel and air filter? Also, got gas? Did you pumped gas at your usual place?

Car is turning over, but slow to start It acts like it wants to fire up and doesn't right off . it will starts, but takes about 7 to 10 seconds after turning the key and holding it . Have changed fuel...

I would check your coil pack is working correctly, then that your spark plug gaps are the right distance, then change your plug leads & check the points.....

I hope this helps....
