Did you just buy regular spark plugs? If not then it may just be that the wires you have now are not capable of delivering. If you bought higher performance spark plugs you may want to look into upgrading your spark plug wires. I'd suggest 9mm racing wires if they are high performance spark plugs. If they aren't, I really cant think of anything else that you could do. It sounds like you've done everything ( that I can think of ) . I'll ask around and try to find out what else it could be.

Every part including spark plugs were factory ordered, boots too! That is why we are now thinking a wire has been crossed. My brother in-law set the timing and I am wondering about that as well. I do believe the car can start if the timing is off and wouldn't have anything to do with not having a spark...but not positive about that! Thanks for responding...Let me know if you have anymore idea's. I am getting ready to have it put on a machine.

I Have Offer To Buy A 1998 Grand Am From Frends mom. Dealer Maintained Hwy Miles (220,000) Only thing is that about every 90-100 miles it would die. asking 1600. for it. other than that is a great sound and clean car. should i buy or run. im concerned because my young grandbabies will be in car at times.

With that many miles I would keep away. Even if it looks good on the outside that mileage means your looking at some potential large repair bills, more than it is worth.

First of all there is no way your brother set the timing on this car so Don't pat him in the back, your car could have a intake manifold leak check and tighten all bolts on intake, also check all vaccuum line for cracks or leaks, also check your idle control system having it scaned it should tell if faulty, Here's a way you can bring the codes up yourself, on your data link connector run a jumper wire between A and B terminal, turn on key Do not start just turn key onl ook at service engine light it will blink a code 12 three times and then it will start blinking your trouble codes if you know someone who knows how to count these codes that would help. write down the code numbers then look up the numbers in a shop manual or I think they mite even be in your owners manual. good luck. Idle air code is 35
