Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Battery damaged or nearly discharged, should have 12.5 volts.
4. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
6. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
7. Water or dirt in the carburetor.
8. Intake air leak.
9. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.
10. Choke valve inoperative.
11. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
12. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).

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.
