Urgent 1998 Acura 3.0 CL

  • 1998 ACURA CL
I have a 1998 acura 3.0 cl. It will not turn over. It sounds like it wants to but makes a fast clicking sound and wont ignite to start. I have tried replacing the fuses and the fuel filter, starter and fuel pump, battery you name it I have probably replaced unless you name something I have not replaced. Any ideas on what it might be?

**Cranks but no start condition:

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 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, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
