WON'T START

1997 SAAB 900

Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Saab 900 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 113000 miles

My SAAB has been very reliable (not without issues, but non engine related). After a short trip - less than 10 miles - it will not start
It wil crank, but not fire
Can you help?

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
