Question about 1992 Chevrolet Camaro
Where I come from... An engine cranking and an engine turning over mean/are doing the same thing. In your case me thinks you mean it's turning over (rotating when you turn the key...) but it's not starting (to RUN/rotate under its own power.)
If that's the case, check for fuel pressure at the Fuel Pressure test valve. It's like a valve stem on a tire but made of metal, including the cap, and is also slightly larger. It's generally found in a part of the Fuel Rail Assembly where the injectors are physically connected. To make this test, turn the ignition switch to on for 5 seconds and then turn it off. Next; Poke the stem inside the valve and some fuel should squirt out. Use great CAUTION! Your fuel is explosive and can start a fire!!!
If it no squirty out some gas, your fuel pump most likely has failed (again) or the relay that turns it on has given up the ghost. BTW: Pumps used in these injection system will often kill themselves if the tank runs dry. Seems they can't handle it if there is not gas to pump. Maybe they feel rejected or something.
If gas DOES squirt out then, well.... the pump ain't the problem.
My '96 V8 would, at times, fail to start when it was suffering from a poor Engine Coolant Temperature sensor connector problem.. I don't know where the ECT sensor is on your block but, keep the idea in mind if nothing else shows up as your problems cause.
This might also be a good time to get the error code from your engines control computer. That's why the Check Engine light is flashing. A very inexpensive tool or one you can borrow from your auto parts store will allow you to get and translate the error codes for your make and model. Actually; I think you can trick your 'puter into revealing the information with a well positioned paper clip or piece of wire stuck into the connector under your dashboard. I don't remember which pins to jump (that force it to flash the code number via the Check Engine light) and I don't recommend poking around in that connector making guesses.
