    1991 Park ave does not have a distributor. Found the problem to be the crank shaft positioning senser.

This happened to my 91 lesabre and it was the ignition module. Some of the parts houses can test it for you prior to purchasing. About 100 bucks. good luck Jim

If the car cranks and your fuel pump works with no fire to the plugs then you've got yourself an electical problem. the first thing i would check is the condition of the distributor. does is spin when you crank the engine? if it does the mechanics of your distributor is fine. next make sure all cables on the distributor is properly connected to all distributor ports as well as the battery connection as well.

1991 eagle talon will crank, but won't start up. 2 days ago I was driving home from work when i turned around in a parking lot and went to my parents house. about a half an hour there i needed to move...

That sounds like the fuel pump may have lost it's prime. Does it have fuel injection, or a carburetor on the engine? How much gas was in the tank while it was parked on an incline? Have you tried any starting fluid sprayed into the air intake hose, toward the engine? Warning! Don't use much starting fluid! Perhaps a one or two second burst, and have someone crank it immediately after you have stepped back at least 6 feet from the engine. If it fires, then it is definitely a fuel delivery problem! But it won't run long like that unless the fuel pump starts working again ... which is most likely when the engine is cold!

1991 Camaro RS v-6 will start but dies almost immediately

Keep it simple and replace the fuel filter first, if thr fiiler has not been replaced within 30,000 miles or 1 year. Then it's a good chance that it's going to be the fuel filter.

1991 buick park ave. after warm, headlights won't shut off

It's probably a malfunctioning lighting control module .The daytime running lamps are controlled by the (LCM) also , by suppling B+ voltage through a resistor to the low beam headlamp circuit after the dimmer switch . Looking at a wiring diagram help's determine as to possible problem's . Not guessing ! Free wiring diagram here Enter vehicle info. Year , make , model and engine size . Under system click on lighting ,then under subsystem click on headlamps . Click the search button then the blue link. If you look at the diagram you will see everything is connected to the (LCM) . Rather then replacing a bunch of parts ( that still may not fix it ) Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop.

Won't start

Check fuel pump but also how long has it been since you've had a tune-up? Could be distributor wiring or rotor button.
