I came out to start my car and it will just crank but won't start. I have already replaced the ignition module and the crankshaft position sensor, but to no avail. There was no hint of any problem the last time I drove it, and now it won't start at all. Any ideas?
Do you
have the same problem?

Do below and see what happens then comeback

Get a carb cleaner and spray into the carb or the throttle body on an EFI. Did it start and die? If not 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 problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light.

Fuel pump and Injector/s checks out-start checking the ignition system-power to coil, coil/s itself, distributor pick-up, control module, Cam and Crankshaft sensors.

If both fuel and spark is present-check the valve and ignition timing, this will lead you to problems with compression and valves opening and closing at the wrong time

There is no spark at all. As far as I know, the ignition coil is receiving power, but it's not being passed on. I can stick a screwdriver in any of the coil/plug wire holes and not get a thing. The fuel pressure is fine.

Inspect and test the coil's primary and secondary resistances/camshaft and crankshaft sensors.

How would I test those? I already replaced the crankshaft sensor as it seems that those are fairly likely the cause. The ignition module is a little different than what I'm used to, it has no rotor/distributor and the lay out is a bit different.

Could be the coil packs/igntion control module/Crankshaft sensor wiring problem or the computer is just not telling the ignition control module to fire the coil/s.
