LATECH Possible bad crank sensor, or a wiring connector , either open circuit or shorted.
Could be an antitheft problem, depends on antitheft system.
Some disable cranking, some disable injector pulse or spark or both. It is designed to keep the crook busy long enough for th fuzz to show up.

Camaro. I went to look at it. snapped a timing light on it & for some reason it started right up ! now, starts every time. I "passed" on it, ( a little "rougher" than I want). But what would cause it to not run for 3 months, then just fix itself ?

non start 97 3.8

"another" non start problem. 1997 3.8/auto. the engine turns over but the injectors won't inject ! the "Rail" is pressurized, but the injectors get no "pulse" to inject the gas. The Present owner already put in a new computer. I'm thinking of buying the car, but I don't want to Buy a Non fixable headache. I've seen posts saying" maybe it's the anti theft in the key switch", Would THAT let the car "Crank" but get no fuel, or would that just stop it from cranking ??? any Ideas Welcome Thanks
