Have someone help you, then using a can of starting fluid, spray some fluid in the intake while your friend tries to start the engine. If everything ELSE is working properly, and the engine starts briefly with the starting fluid, there is probably an issue with the fuel delivery. It could also be related to EGR valve, especially on a vehicle that is getting a little older. Sometimes a plugged EGR circuit can cause problems with the engine.

On an 1990 S15 GMC is not getting fuel from the injector?

If it is just one injector, it is a bad injector or a problem in the wiring harness or connector for that injector. If it is all of the injectors, it could be a fuse, the entire injector harness, a broken loose or unplugged connector on the injector harness, or the fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator.

Have 2000 Durango am getting code PO207 Switched injector 7 and 1 still get code PO207 What next?

Are you sure you are changing injector #7? Should be the injector closest to the firewall on the drivers side. If you are changing the correct injector, and the code remains, the problem is with the wiring from the injector to the pcm (computer) or the computer itself. You can check for correct battery voltage at the injector with a volt/ohm meter (how does the connector look at the injector?). This year of Durango/Dakota had trouble with computers too, although I have not heard of specific injector trouble being caused by the computer. Most likely a wiring problem. It may even be the TPS

Why my ingector 4 dont work on a 2.4 cavalier 1997?

If you mean the fuel injector for the #4 cylinder isn't working the answer is simple, either the injector is bad and needs replaced, or the connector has gone bad/ the wires are shorted out. Put an injector pulse tester on that injector (most people don't have these so you'll need to get it tested at a garage), if the injector doesn't fire when it's tested separatly you need an injector. If it does fire that means the plug/wire is the problem.
