this could be many things . it could be a bad distributor cap a bad rotor or the ignition module bad ! TAKE THE CAP OFF AND MAKE SURE THE ROTOR TURNS WHEN YOU CRANK IT ! if it does not move then it is a timing belt that is bad.

NOTE:

This engine does NOT have a Distributor, or Conventional Coil,...so there is no Distributor Cap, nor Rotor.

sounds like your ignition coil or control module are shot. Either can cause this problem.

If all plug wires are dead, no spark, and the module has power and ground suspect crank angle sensor. Of course sensor will break opon removal from engine block 4Cyl but in VA NAPA sells the sensor for $9.00. On the distribitorless system the crank sensor, module, and coils are all piggybacked in the same location, back of engine and is very difficult to service. When I was working as a auto tech we had allot of trouble with crank sensors and ign coils.

Before you jump to any conclusions. If your starter is cranking the engine at a normal speed(use your judgment), and you preformed all test for spark, such as pulling wire off spark plug and connecting positive end of volt meter into plug, and negative end to ground, you should see a definite deflection on an analog meter. All test and still no spark. DON'T forget to check your fuses and fuseable links in the starting and charging system. THIS must be done first. 50% chance, this is where your problem lies.

You have replaced the throttle sensor map sensor oxygen sensor and crank shaft sensor in our 91 Chevy cavalier and it is still hard to start and jerks a lot and dies what is the problem?

I would say you have to check your coil packs, and ignition module to see if they are firing on all cylinders, and have the correct spark. Anything but a bright blue spark means a weak coil. The ignition module can be tested at some parts stores.
