Hello,

You say you have good spark, what color is the spark it should be bluish/white. If it is an orangish color you have a weak spark and in most cases the vehicle will not start.

Have your check the Timing? Bring the #1 cylinder to top on compression stroke, remove cap and make sure the rotor it pointing at the #1 plug tower.

Sorry, I am drawing a blank for some reason.

Does the vehicle have a security system and/or a chip set in the key and lock cylinder? If has chip in key and you have a spare have you tried the spare key?

Ok,

Have you checked the injector harnesses? If injector harnesses check ok. Then check the injector resistance it should be.

4.3L Vin - Z Turbo --- 2.0 ohms

All others - 1.3 ohms
