Spark plug must be grounded against the engine to be checked. If it is truly a no/spark condition, then the next thing to check is the "dead-man" switch if it is on a pushmower and then check the ignition module air-gap. That is the distance in between the legs of the coil and the magnets in the flywheel. Different engine applications (you did not say) are set a few thousandths different but a good rule of thumb is closer is better. Set the air gap at .008"-012" or about the thickness of a standard sized business card. If this doesn't produce a spark, then the ignition module is possibly bad.

And changed gear from neutral to park and tried starting. but it won't start again when i tried. is it ignition box problem or anything else ?

You can check the ignition module by pulling a spark plug wire and inserting an old spark plug. Any plug should do, just make sure to rest the base of the plug to a good ground source. Crank the engine while someone looks at the plug for spark.

After changing plugs, air Filter , oil filter and fuel filter, I tried starting it and now its misfiring.

You most likely need new Spark Plug Wires. When you change your Spark Plugs, it is always a good idea to throw some New Spark Plug Wires in with them.

Have a 1985 buick centruy with a 2.5 seems like its loading up with to much fuel wont start.I have spark timing is good, compression good, and changed the temp sensor. tried a different maf sensor(used)...

If you have spark, and the timing is good, you are either not getting enough fuel or there is not enough compression. If you checked the spark from the spark plug wires and got a spark, try changing the spark plugs. The spark from the plugs may be too weak to ignite the fuel.

Have you changed your fuel filter? This is a very common cause of a no start condition. Have your fuel pressure tested to ensure you are getting the correct amount of fuel. Also, you could try replacing your Fuel Pressure Regulator.

If a defective spark plug was found, it can destroy the secondary winding in the coil pack for that plug. Change the plug wires too.
