OLDSMOBILE 88 SPARK PROBLEM

1993 Oldsmobile 88 • 140,000 miles

I changed the crankshaft position sensor due to the vehicle only getting spark when it wanted to. Now I am getting spark and fuel but the engine still wont start. My brother was cranking the car on a daily basis while it was not getting spark. Maybe he fowled the plugs or what else could it be. Dont think it is a timing issue.

Could be an engine compression problem and also valve/ignition timing issue-also check fuel pressure if its within specification-get back when ready to continue-
