2004 GMC Envoy SLT 4.2L no spark at spark plugs boots why?

This is most likely the crankshaft sensor, It tells the ECM when to fire the plugs. The sensor is on the block visible on the drivers side through the wheel well of from under the truck

What causes the spark controller to burn out?

Either engine computer (ecu) or ignition control module. It may have different names like power transistor unit, ICM, ECM etc. Power runs from engine computer to ignition module then that powers the coilpack/coils. Also check the ground connections as they corrode over time. If you replace any units make sure the make a great connection and use any heatsink paste required

I can't get my 1992 Chev S10 2.5 liter to fire. What could be the problem?

It could be alot of things but I would try one thing at a time starting with the coil wire, then the cap and rotor. It could be the coil itself. If you havent worked on it before it happened then it is probably the ignition module inside the cap. It has a spark control and a knock sensor among other things that have alot to do with the spark. Theres a pick-up coil in the distributer that sometimes shorts out. But vary rarely. If you have a multi meter and some time there are tests to check out everything. You need to go in a line backwards so that you can run the problem down. Pull a plug and plug it in to the wire and set the bottom of the plug on something metal on the engine, spin the engine over and look for it to spark against the metal. Just be super careful because a spark needs a drop of gas , to BOOM you get to learn how to stop a fire. That kinda tells you if the plug is good. Then pull the plug off and stick a nail in the wire and ground the nail and spin it and see if you get a spark if not then move up to the coil wire. And so on and so on until you find a spark. If you have a test light check to see if you get power to the distributer , if you do and it wont spark then its most likely the ignition modual.

Ive had my from about 2 years its a 1.8 litre and i cannot get a spark Ive replace the coil and distributor and all the spark plugs and leads is there anything else that could cause this problem it over...

Have a look at the ignition module. Cars of that vintage had a pretty basic electronic ignition system with an exterior module that worked in conjunction with the distributor. The ignition contacts on the key switch could be a problem and also the distribution of the spark plug leads. The firing order is 1 3 4 2 . Also check that you are firing on # 1 TDC compression and not # 4.

I'm not gettin power through my ignition or to my distributer therefore I'm not getting spark why is this?

Need to look at ignition module since it provides power to primary terminal of ignition coil. If there is no power to the primary coil, then no power to the second coil. If there is no power on the secondary terminal of ignition coil connecting to the distributor then there is no spark at spark plugs. Good luck
