I've purchased an OBD I&II tester for my 1995 Firebird. It has multiple connections but still not one for my car. My car cranks but will not turn over and I've tested or checked plugs, wires, fuel filter/pump, battery.
Can I buy a special connector for this tester?
Can anyone help?

Yes, I've done that and there is a spark.

I also hear the fuel pump whinning each time I turn the key to crank the car.

Try the fuel and air filters, also check for faulty distributer, timing chain fracture, and donate to get a pro's help. A few bucks will do. You have a lot of miles and this is out of my capibilitties.
