My first guess would be a crank or cam sensor is disconnected.
Or damaged.
Have you checked the computer for trouble codes ?

Wont start spark plug is wet . has good compresion

Possibly magneto problem.
Remove sparkplug and whilst wearing a thick rubber glove hold side of plug against engine head. Pull start cord and watch to see if there is any spark. If not replace spark plug first. If that doesn't solve it replace magneto. If there is a spark then the plug may need cleaning and the gap may need adjusting, fuel mixture may be too rich

I have a 1991 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme. I have just rebuilt the top part of the engine, I had to put on 2 new head gaskets. I got the engine back together and now the car will not start, it will turn...

did you get the spark plug wires to the correct cyls? Remember that an engine needs three things to start, 1: fuel, make sure your getting gas, 2: spark, make sure you have spark and you have it at the right time,3: compression, if anything went wrong when you replaced the gasket you could be losing compresion, an engine missing one of the three will not run, and any engine with all three will always run, not always well but will at least run.

I found oil on 2 spark plugs telling me the head gasket is blown. Ive never replaced one before what can you tell me?

Oil on the plug does not indicate a head gasket.
It could be a bad ring, valve guide or valve seal.
A leak down test will comfirm a head gasket leak
A compresion test will confirm a ring problem.
Oil consumption and smoke indicate ring and valve problems.
If it smokes on stat up, most likely valve guide or seal.
If if smokes when you drive and let off the gas quickly from speed, then most likely a ring or cylinder wall problem.

Good Luck

Car will not start. It is getting fuel and has spark. It does turn over and tries to start but will not start.

If it is getting fuel (with good fuel pressure) and spark (blue), then your problem is either timing related which could come from a snapped timing belt, or compression related which could be due to a blown head gasket. In which case you would replace the timing belt or replace the head gasket respectively.

Engine overheated & shut down i let it cool down for 12 hrs. bled fuel system added water installed new coil engine turns over freely but no fire on 3 cylinders?

The fact that it needed water and you know have you no fire on a cylinder means you prabably blew a head gasket. Does it blow out steam when you start it from cold now. You will need to check compression on all cylinders and do a chemical block test for fuel in the coolant first in order to rule this out or in.

Bought a kx250f 05mod with a bend rod and destroyed cylinder head. bought everything new, and now it would not start,i have spark, and it is fuel on the spark plug. what can be wrong?

Chances are the flywheel key is partially sheared or fully sheared off causing the spark to be out of time.. The crankshaft could be misaligned due to the top end blowup.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

Dead front cylinder

3 things to check 1 / check for fuel at cylinder is spark plug wet with fuel if so go to 2 . if not check carbs butterfly / jets etc ?.
2/ compression .. remove spark plug and fit compression tester should attain between 120 t0 150 psi or be in green for none numbered meters .. if not suspect valve seatings or cylinder head gasket ?. or compresion rings . if ok
2 check for spark at plug place plug in cap and place on side of engine turn over and look for good spark ( some plugs spark when out of cylinder but break down under preassure I am sumising you tried a new plug first ) if no spark check ignition /distributor cap and rotor arm clean and refit or replace . if all fails then can only suggest that you take to garage and have a tune test performed .. hope this helps..
