2003 trailblazer 5.3 no fire change cam & crank sensor

if its got no fire and you changed your cam and crank sensor try replacing the ignition Coil then if it doesn't work replace the distributor cap and spark plugs and wires if that doesn't work then take the distributor cap off and replace the distributor Rotor if it still doesn't work replace the wires to the rotor if still i dosent work check your fuses but i assure you that should fix it.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

We have replaced the motor on a 1995 blazer with a rebuilt long block. The engine will now turn over but not start. It has been suggested that we replace the cam sensor. Plugs fire and it's getting gas?...

It has to be in the timing, you either have the wires in the wrong place with the firing order, or there is something wrong with the Dist.If it is sparking and getting gas, it should fire up. Does it back fire? Order no. 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2, with electronic ignition, number one at 5:30, I would check the distributor, make sure the number one is at 5:30 with the number one at tdc. Hope this helps.

Nissan 2001 eterra want fire up after i ranout of gas

sounds like your not getting fire! I would check to the distributor, the coil is inside the distributor. If you have acess to a good used distributor, then switch them out real quick. It's very easy and it might solve your problem. Just mark where the rotor inside the distributor is pointing, and when you drop the distributor in make sure to align the rotor button in the exact position. If it still doesn't fire then you'll know that's it's not the dist. I hope this helps!
