Check to see if there is an ignition module...they look like a box with a heatsink and a transistor on it...usually have a 4-5 pin connector that looks like a pentagon shape and is usually mounted to firewall....another possibility is the pickup inside the distributor...the pickup can be tested with an ohmmeter..The meter should show continuity between the leads of pickup...follow these leads back to the ignition module... Ignition module in not very expensive for this year of car...ECU usually will not cause this prob.

Well i had ignition module replaced new, plugs , wires, and cleared all codes and ran okay but if you kicked in really hard it would cut out like pushing a clutch in. Drove out one night drove ok and ran...


There is a fuel inertia switch..that is the law.. It is located either outside by the connections to the fuel pump or on the pump itself. I doubt that is the problem as you say the pump is pressurizing. May be a security system issue or pcm issue.. GM cars are very sensitive to voltage changes of any type...Take it back to the mechanic.

no not a fuel filter problem, that just causes a lack of power, u have the symptoms of a failing ignition control module (located on the outside of the distributor) and distributor pickup ( located on the inside of the distributor)

Start at Changing your sparkplugs wires (if you are performing this on your own replace one by one to prevent mix-up). If problem still persists, have coil pack checked or replaced. Hopefully this helps!!

I think you should check your battery and alternator.If they both check good you may have a battery draw,something draining the battery over night.Check your doors make sure they are closing like they should.

Engine cranks, but does not start


My suggestion to this is to check the basics. Check fuel pressure and check spark during crank. There is no quick answer for a no start condition. You always have to start by checking the basics. An engine with no spark or fuel will not start every time.
