Your coil is inside the distributor cap. Remnove the cap and work on the bench....it is easier. Just make sure you mark the position of the ignition wires so you don't mix them up when putting them back on.
There are four screws that hold the cover on the cap or sometimes just a push back clip. Remove those and then remove the four screws that hold the coil in place.
Remove the coil, replace the rubber washer and spring/button under it with the new one you got with the coil. Replace the four screws, check the underside of the cap to make sure none of the screws went through the cap (don't over-tighten them or sometimes that can happen). After that, just put the cover back on and put the cap back on the distributor, plug everything back in and you are finished.

SOURCE: no gas, no spark, 1991 chevy cavalier 2.2l 4cyl

This is an all too common problem with the Cavalier and other GM J-body cars. Usually it is because of the crankshaft position sensor or the harness going between it and the DIS (aka ignition module). Without the DIS seeing a signal from the crank sensor, it doesn't know when to trigger fuel and spark.

Sometimes this can also be caused by a faulty ignition switch. The switch will allow you to "crank" the car, but it doesn't make the proper connections for the ignition system, so the car never actually runs.

The previously indicated oil pressure switch could also be causing the problem, but if you hear your fuel pump run then it's OK.

Hopefully this helps. If not, your Cavalier is as messed up as mine and probably not worth fixing.

Are you getting power to the coil ?
It could be the stator-pickup in the distributor or a lack of voltage to the ignition system.
Is the check engine light on when you turn the key on ?

The ignition modulator may have to be replaced, you can pick one up at Auto Zone and it's still pretty expensive so you may want to try the Salvage yards. The ignition modulator's are common interchangeable part for the GM line so you can get one from a newer car then your 89 cavalier. Good luck and hope this helps. I believe Auto Zone can also test the ignition modulator too, the modulator is what the coils sit on.

No spark on 1987 chevy cavalier


Crank position sensor would be my guess.
Its located the center, rear engine area, mounted in the block below the ignition coil pack and DIS module.My guess is that's your culprit.
