MY Orion '91 with just 43,00 miles on it won't start. I didn't use it
for a week and when I started it it won't start. The starter turns but
it won't crank the engine. I checked the high tension wires going into
the spark plugs and there seems to be no current going to the spark
plugs. I changed the ignition coil, high tension wire, spark plugs and
cleaned all the ground connections, it still won't start. Waht seems to
be the problem, please help.
That means is that either the starter drive is stuck and not engaging,
or you have some teeth stripped from the flywheel. But I suspect that
what you really meant is that the engine cranks, but won't start. If
that's the case...
...please confirm that after changing the ignition parts there is still
no spark. If no spark, check for a bad ignition module. If there is a
spark, then you need to check for fuel delivery.
Hopefully, someone who knows that car will be along shortly, but if
everything from the plugs back to the module has been replaced, then I
expect the next likely culprit would be something like a crankshaft
position sensor -- whatever is pulsing the module, probably via the ECU,
