I replaced the motor in my 88 with a motor from an 86 and when i turn the key it barely wants to turn over it takes several turns from the key to get a full revolution. I replaced the coil because im not getting a spark to or from the distributor. I still dont have a spark and it barely wants to turn over.
Check battery connections at posts, frame ground, auxiliary ground, and starter. check starter. afriend of mine rebuilt his engine and it cranked over slow. before the starter was fine. starter was weak and he had a lot more compression

Hi does the motor turn with key but doesn't start?, If so take a spark plug out and replace it back into the spark plug lead and earth it onto a steel part of the body(make sure it's touching something steel). Have somebody turn the key to see if your getting spark. If you have spark then you have a fuel blockage but if you don't have spark but have new coils and battery then it could be a loose wire in the coil harness meaning electrical......
You say car does not crank over, If you mean you turn the key and motor doesn't turn then it's electrical, so no spark OR motor doesn't turn you're better off getting an auto electrician but if you have spark it's fuel problem and you need a mechanic... Sorry and good luck......
on any car always check ur fuses first... and ifthat does't work then check your distributor by taking out a spark plug from only one cylnder and put it in the plug and lay it on the block. then turn your key as if to crank it and c if ur getting a spark from the spark plug. if u aren't, then its either the distributor cap, a worn rotory button inside the distributor cap or it could be the moduel inside the distributor which would then mean youll have to replace the whole distributor
take a plug out and rest it on the bare metal of the engine with the plug lead connected, check for a spark when turning over the engine, repeat for all plugs and replace if no spark. also has the car been sitting for a while? put new fuel in and add redex, check fuel is getting to the engine.
It's either not getting fuel or spark. Have you checked to see if you are getting any spark to the plugs. Take one of the plug wires off its plug and place it close to the frame or engine. When you crank the engine you should be able to see a spark jump from the plug wire to the frame. if you do not see a spark you have a problem with the ignition system. If you do see a spark then the problem is with the fuel system.
