It turns but it wont start,it has gas and power

Pull off the coil ignition cable at the distributor and check for spark coming out of coil when cranking engine over. Use a heavy rag or glove to hold the wire 1/4 inch from a metal ground. Should see a strong blue spark when cranking to verify ignition is good. If no spark, check for battery voltage to coil on the coil primary. If you have current to the coil, suspect a bad coil, ignition module, crank position sensor, or cam position sensor, or pcm. The coil, ignition module, and sensors can be tested before replacing.

Pu t in new coil and distrubtor cap and rotor put in new electronic module not firing wont start

No spark at the spark plug? It may be the pick-up coil inside the distributor. This is the sensor that tells the computer the engine's crank position.
If the ignition switch is good, you should have power at the coil's + terminal when key is on. You might check for that.

Only the frame of the coil should be grounded. The wire coming out of the coil is the kill wire. If it gets grounded the engine stops or wont start. This wire usually goes to the ignition switch and another wire from the ignition goes to ground. You have to use an ohmeter to see which wire in the ignition is grounded when the tractor is off.

Just installed new moter and it wont start how do

I'm not sure if you have 1 or more coil packs, but if you get a Chilton manual, it'll tell you how to check primary and secondary circuits on each of the coils. You can also take the coils out and take them to Autozone and they can check them for you. A quick and easy way would be to take the spark plug end of one spark plug wire off, hold the electrode with a pair of WELL INSULATED pliers,( Only touch the insulated handle, not the metal on the pliers) hold it about 1/4 inch from a good metal ground, then have someone try to turn the engine over. If you're getting spark, you'll definitely see the sparking from the electrode to the ground. FYI Only take one plug wire off at a time to prevent mixing them up and make sure you keep your hands and other body parts away from anything that could hurt you. There is also a control module that, if bad, can make it so the car won't start. This can also be checked at Autozone for free.

Saab 95 1998 - wont start

The most common problem is the Direct ignition cassette, followed by the crankshaft position sensor. I am assuming that it cranks, but won't start.
