CAR TURNS OVER BUT DOESN'T FIRE. HA

1987 Cadillac Fleetwood

Engine Mechanical problem
1987 Cadillac Fleetwood V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 300000 miles

my 1987 cadillac fleetwood d'elegance has had electrical problems. We've learnt to live with them but now it won't start. The distributer has been changed and I also changed the fuel fillter. I've heard it could be the gas line, or pump. I need help!

The first thing you need to do is Make sure you have spark. You can do this a couple different ways I perfer to remove the coil wire if applicable then attach a good plug to it and have someone crank the motor as you look for spark. (Be careful sparkplug ignition will shock you, be sure the plug is grounded in a spot so that you dont have to touch it.) If there is spark then move to a plug wire. If you have spark it may be a fuel problem.
