ENGINE TURNS OVER BUT WON'T START. I

1995 Chrysler Cirrus • 16,500 miles

I have a 1995 Chrysler Cirrus, the car turns over but won't start. I am not getting any spark. I have changed out the distributor, and the computer and still nothing. What else could it be?

Alot, you shold scan for codes when it first broke down to see what sensor may have gone bad. Check your cam an dcrank sensors for resistance

There were no error codes coming up, can it still be crank or cam sensor?

Yes but it needs to be checked. A scanner won't do you much good now as you have replaced the computer. Check your fuel presure too it may be low an dnot allowing a start

Will low fuel pressure keep me from getting a spark? Anyway fuel pressure is fine.

Did you check compression and the timing belt?

Compression is good and so is the timing belt

What is the compression?

After changing out everything I said before and now changing out the crankshaft sensor the car finally started but now the timing seems to be off, any suggestions?

Thats why we asked for the compression. If the belt moved a tooth off it will give you a power issue

the timing is not adjustable on these anymore.

Compression, timing, is all ok with car. Now car is running rich slugish (I'm thinking oxygen sensor) and none of my gauges are working. Could something have shorted out that caused all these problems?
