I have a 98 Chevy Venture that has no spark what are some steps that I can take? There's the smell of gas coming from the engine it turns over but it's not getting any spark. What can I do about it?
I've already.
Tested the spark.
Check all the fuses.
Changed the fuel filter.

Did you check for primary voltage at the coil?

Primary voltage at the coil is a pink wire. Should go hot with the key on. Check ground, also. Your ignition module controls spark during cranking.

Check the fuse and fuse circuit for voltage. Elek ignition fuse--10 amp, underhood fuse block. If the fuse is blown, something caused it to blow, cant say a new fuse will fix it?

Did you check for voltage at the fuse circuit? Even if the fuse is good, if no voltage on the fuse circuit, the circuit is still dead. Maybe something wrong with wiring circuit?
