I had a similar problem, getting fuel, no spark... new coil pak, new sensors, still wouldnt start... no trouble codes. After about two months of racking my brains I finally just bit the bullet and purchased a refurbished ECM (PCM, ECC) from Autozone. Apparently there were two made for that year, had to re-order the right one. After I put it in and turned the key, there was a loud backfire and it started right up. Been running great ever since.

97 oldsmobile achieva wont fire changed coil pack spark plugs cam sensor still wont start

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
If you having a problem with more than one system, I want to check for rpm signal, that usually comes from the crank sensor. Not sure why you replaced cam sensor? I always want to check sensor wiring circuits before replacing anything. Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.

Could be crankshaft or camshaft position censer or distributor, or coil pack, it will be a matter of trouble shooting. Hope this helps a little and good luck.

Try testing both the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors.Usually it turns out to be the camshaft sensor.No signal equals no spark and no start.
