Car will not start

  • 4 CYL
I have a 1996 chevy corsica which starts no and then. It turns over, I thought it might be a flue problem, had a flue pressure check, that was fine, then I was told a number 600 came up when scanned, something about the emc, ecm, whatever. Now after $600 I am told it requires a computor. I am tired of spending money I don't have. It has stopped twice on me and wouldn't restart till the next day. The person working on it said by taping on the computor he was able to come to this conculsion replace the computor. Not the crankshaft, some one said the wires. Any ideas?

Next time if it refuses to start do below to determine if its fuel or spark problem

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if so, 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, cap and rotor, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing
