Is there no power to the coil or no spark???

Disconnect the wires from both ends of the coil. Use an ohm meter to test the resistance of the primary winding in the coils. Put the meter's function switch in OHMS, R X 1. Touch one meter lead to each of the small terminals on the coil. Your meter should read 2-3 ohms. If this is correct, connect the "HOT" wires (the pink ones I think) to the coil. On the other side, take a length of regular wire and strip the insulation from each end. Connect one end of this wire to the empty terminal of the coil. Put an extra set of spark plugs in the spark plug wires and ground them on the engine so that you can see them. Turn the ignition switch on, and MOMENTARILY touch the bare end of the jumper wire to the engine case. When you take the wire away from the engine case, the coil should fire and you should see a spark at the plugs. If no spark or the resistance reads other than between two and three ohms, the coil is bad. If the coil checks good, I'd suspect the pickup in the timer cavity on the right side of the engine.

Thank Steve for this

1992 vortec v6 motor getting spark and strong fuel pressure to motor but wont start, crank sensor is good ,motor tries to start when fuel poured into throttle body

the probem is probably in the injector assembly whichis under the intake plenum.after removing it you will se the plastic tubes and ijector popit valves unlike actual individual injectors.this whole contraption must be replaced as an can get repair manuals from this site or go to you may actually be flooding as these had problems with leaking fuel pressure regulators which i think are also only part of the whole assembly.
