CHEVROLET ASTRO SPARK PROBLEM

2001 Chevrolet Astro • 98,000 miles

What could be the problem with my astro van---it cranks good but won't start, dosen't even hint at trying to start. I'm suspecting the fuel pump. But it wouldn't start even with spraying starting fluid in the intake of the carb.

Check fuel pressure and spark. Let us know which is missing

Have you checked to see if you are getting spark? You're right. If it doesn't start with starting fluid, it's not the fuel pump. My guess is you don't have spark. Maybe a crank sensor.
