How do you check your coils is there a photo that shows you how? or a video, web site

Its part of the electrical system. Check plugs, wires, gaps, and coil packs (on top of the engine, will have 3 cylindrical things with 6 wire (two from each) coming off of them) Is one plug not getting a spark? or are a few of them not getting a spark. if its one or two of them, see if they lead to the same coil, if so, its the coil pack (not sure if you can replace one coil, or if the whole pack is bad) look for messed up wires and corroded plugs/wire boots.

Lifters/car not starting


Do you have the 2.2 liter Ecotec 4-cylinder engine, the 3.5 liter V6, or the 3.9 liter V6 engine? If you have the 2.2 liter engine, there may be a camshaft/timing chain issue if you skipped a tooth when you put the chain back on the cams. If it's a 3.5 or a 3.9 liter V6, you may have incorrectly installed the push rods back into the engine. 3.5 liter intake push rods are approx 5 3/4" long, while the exhaust push rods are approx 6" long.
The 3.9 liter intake push rods are approx 5.81" long, while the exhaust push rods are approx 6.1" long. If you mix the two lengths up when you put them back in the engine, you're going to have problems.

Sounds like a plugged fuel filter. You might have dislogged some "crud" when removing the lines, etc... Can't be 100% sure without doing a test on the fuel system.
Good Luck.

sounds like the head or head gasket is blown. your cylinders may be getting coolant in them which will not only cause the motor to lockup, but also cause bent rods and valves. check your oil dipstick and transmission dipstick to see if it looks like water or coolant is presant, also check the coolant to see if it smells like gas or has any kind of oil in it, if so, your head is likely blown.
