Default Replaced coil packs and it still doesn't start!! (93 SSE)

I had the ignition module checked and it was fine. So I went ahead and replaced the coil packs. It still won't start. I don't have a clue now what the hell is wrong with this thing. The guy told me he was 99% sure it was the packs too. He said since we were trying to start it and pumping on the gas it might be flooded. He told me to wait alittle and try again. I went out and it'* been about an hour and it still won't start.

Let'* have the rundown again. It cranks (turns over) but doesn't catch?

All 3 coil packs won't fail at once. Return them if you can. Have you verified you're getting spark at all 6 cylinders yet?

This was the same symptoms I had with my car but it was the crank sensor. Have you checked for codes yet?

Str8, can you link us to the previous post you made, or copy your comments there? I've completely lost track of what you've done so far. And you should pull codes before ANY work on the car. Especially before spending any money.

Ok! When I first posted I said that I went to move my car and it wouldn't start. If I put my foot on the gas it would try to start but then die if I let off. I talked to my sisters friend and told him about the situation and had him check it out. He tried starting it and said it'* either coil packs or fuel compression. So I went and picked up three new coil packs in which he said he was about 99% sure it was the packs. We had the module tested and it was ok. So he changed them and it still won't start. He told me that the car could be flooded from trying to start it before we changed them because I was pumping the gas and holding it down to the floor. He told me to wait about an hour or so and try to start, in which I did and it still won't start. Now that the new packs are installed when I press the gas it won't even try to start. Did I flood the car? I heard that you can'tr flood a fuel injected car. I haven't tried to start it for awhile but it probally won't. That'* where stand now. He said that'* it'* getting spark because it starts to fire but just doesn't start all the way.

Brainstorming here.....what if the FPR is leaking past and flooding? So the throttle plate had to be partially open to get it to start?

Use the procedure in Techinfo ASAP. We've got the gearheads working on this. After pulling codes, check for spark at all 6 wires with the old coils and the new.
