Not trying to be funny! It could be almost anything! If you have an Auto Zone any place around you. See if you can get it their somehow and the will run a diagnostic scan at no charge. That should at least get you headed in the right direction. If you have spark, fuel, and air, and it will not start, the timing is off. ==Additionaly,== the other factor in this formula is compression. In order for the car to fire, you need all of the above + compression. If your head gasket has gone south, that can contribute to your problem.

You could be having a problem with your spark plugs and your dashboard is alerting you. You should have a mechanic check it out.
Four plugs, one per cylinder.
Um, ALL cars/trucks/SUV's have spark plugs. What a stupid question.
The spark plug gap for the 2003 Pontiac Sunfire 2.2 liter 4-cylinder is .043 (in thousandths). The '03 Sunfire gets up to 25 miles per gallon in the city and 33 mph on the highway.Ê
You could have a fuel pressure problem, lack of spark, malfunctioning computer, or internal engine damage.
The gap for the 2.4L is .060in. Other engines will likely be different.
Provides a high voltage to the spark-plugs so that the fuel ignites in the cylinders.
The plugs on 2.3L and 2.4L OHC engines the gap should be at 0.050 in.
oh its for a Pontiac sunfire
im not sure but if you follow the spark plug wires they will take you to the coil packs
all Sunfires are 4 cylinder engines, so 4.
Um... Only internal combustion engines have spark plugs. But I could be wrong so check next to your halogen fluid reservoir. If that does not help I would recommend replacing your muffler bearings
I think that in all of the Sunfire engines, the plugs are in a row across the front of the engine. Try locating and following the plug wires to help you. FriPilot
Your Sunfire has two coil packs, located on the back side of the engine as viewed from the front of the car. Find a spark plug wire and follow it back.
To change the spark coil pack on a 1998 Pontiac Sunfire with a 2.4 engine, first disconnect the battery. Then remove the coil pack and spark plug. The spark plug should also be replaced with the new coil pack for best performance. Insert the new spark plug, then the new coil pack being careful not to bump any of the many other electronic parts. Then reconnect the battery.
It depends on what engine you have. On some you have to remove the housing on the top of the engine which contains the coils etc.
There is either a crack in the head gasket or some other part of the engine that is allowing the coolant to leak out through the tailpipe. Take the spark plugs out one at a time, turn the engine on and see if anything (like water) comes out of the spark plug holes. Also check to see if the spark plugs themselves are wet.
Depends on the motor, 4cyl or V6, but it could be the ignition module, or the crank sensor
under the cover in the middle of the motor. take the 4 bolts out of the cover and you'll see them down in the valley
pull out # 1 spark plug and look down in the cylinder and see the top of the piston then you know your right on tdc..
Sunfire spark plugs cost about eight dollars per plug. They can be purchased at almost any auto supply store in the United States.
