I have a 1998 gmc jimmy 4.3 6cylinder 4x4 I blew

What I've seen done to test an injector is to pull it, and swap it for another cylinder. If the miss moves, then the injector is bad. If the miss stays on #5, then the problem isn't the injector.

I have a 1998 dodge avenger se 6 cyl,, an it wont start its not the battery or the Fuel Pump not the Starter it just dont have any spark it acts like its out of gas but has a haf tank all looks good an...

when you turn on key, do you hear the fuel pump run for a couple of seconds ? check fuses, & fuel pump relay,(it has a fuse also). fuel pump cannot be ruled out. next, your coil provides spark to plug wires, with an assistant, in drivers seat, pull off a spark plug wire from a spark plug, use a paper clip, insert into end of wire, with the helper turnning the key to crank engine, hold the wire w/clip about an 1/8 " from clean metal, to see if a spark occurs, wear gloves, or you may get jolted, if you know what I mean. if no spark, replace coil, I would replace plug wires also. remove spark plugs , if worn, replace. just do it !!! you need spark correct ? well then ! whens the last time you replaced fuel filter ? do it ! a new air filter will help also. air, fuel, spark all work together. go to parts store, if you can, see if they can pull any trouble codes . if you can't do the work mentioned above, it just might be your problem . now get to work , make it happen !!!!

1998 avenger crank no start!

I don't have experience with the avenger itself, but i've been wrenching on cars for longer then i care to admit and age myself... LOL.... but from what your describing i would almost suspect a ECU problem, but that doesn't make sense since you have injector pulses and spark. If you have fuel, air, and spark... The only thing i could suggest is recheck all electrical connections and possibly do a compression test to rule out anything that might have failed with the relearn test drive. A quick google search through some dodge forums didn't really turn up any common avenger issues, sounds like a hair pulling problem!

I changed my headgasket on my 1999 dodge avenger and water pump spark plugs even the hydraulic timing belt tensionerand it is still misfiring

Why did you change the head gasket Patrick,
Was the engine missing before you did this,or did you over heat the engine from low coolant?
If the miss was there before you may have burnt a valve,

your engine is running very lean. you may have a vacum leak, bad injectors, fuel pump, mass airflow sensor ect. do not continue to run the engine or sever damage will result
