Check the compression. If the compression is low the vehicle will be difficult to start. If that's not it you probably have something wrong with the injectors. Check the temperature sensor, air flow sensor and anything else that might be involved. If you can find a code scanner that works with your vehicle, that could be a big help in finding the problem.
Bad coil? Bad coil wire?
check and see if u have a hole in your muffler
Check the coil and replace if bad. Should fix the problem.
no spark to plugs
ccheck the crank position senson and coil pack's
Remove all spark plugs, turn the engine by hand and get the #1 spark plug at TDC on the compression stroke. Install the distributor so the rotor is pointing to the # 1 plug position on distributor cap. Start the engine and set the time it with a timing light.Remove all spark plugs, turn the engine by hand and get the #1 spark plug at TDC on the compression stroke.

Check to see if it getting spark/fuel Check rotor
Absolutely. Worn plugs or carbon-fouled plugs can cause an engine to not start.
Check/replace Rotor Check for spark at plugs
Start with a good tune up, new plugs, wires, dist cap and rotor, fuel and air filter. Clean the idle air control and inside the throtle body, and run some injector cleaner through it.
try to get a new ignition rotor
could use a tune up, plugs, rotor cap, wiring, etc. Use hi octane fuel..
if throttle body is flooding engine how can i fix .4.3engine on 88 Chevy blazer motor was running great on morning wont start. new gas tank plugs wires ,sending unit.and throttle body.motor turns over wants to start ,there is fire to plugs and fuel to throttle body,also new rotor button
What did the check engine light codes say was bad?
depends on the type of engine, general rules are remove the spark plugs, squirt in a few ozs oil, turn the engine over for 1 minute, replace plugs, then start it..
check the ignition module, it's in or around the rotor
It can be a number of things. Start with the basics. Plugs, plug wires, rotor, distributor cap, resistor, vacuum leak, are all suspect.
It sounds like no spark on your plugs check the power going to your coil if you have that then it could be the ignition module under the rotor,assuming you do have gas in it :)
Could be a bad fuel pump.
Did you replace the FUEL FILTER when you replaced the fuel pump?
if its turning over but not firing make sure you have the right firing order, i had that happen to me onve, i replaced everything and then turned out i had two cylinders backwards
I'd definitely try they cao and rotor. If I have a bad distributor and rotor in my Z28, it will almost never kick over.
no The starter should engage whether the plugs are fouled or not. However, the engine may not start if enough plugs are fouled. If you feel that you have flooded the engine or fouled the plugs you may need to clean them before it will start. If you have caused the carburetor float level or other settings to be significantly changed, the engine will flood and it will not start.
Depending on model, this engine may not have glow plugs. In engines with glow plugs, they are located next to the injectors on the top of the engine, under the plastic cover.
if the injector is getting fuel, check for spark at the plugs, it might be the plug wires, bad plugs, rotor, pick up, or coil
