I have a 95 Z28. The engine turns over but will not start. There is a ticking sound that sounds like a spark arching. It had been ticking for a couple of days when starting but was ok when it started. The car has a new MSD 6AL ignition with a blaster coil. It isn't the starter or the battery. Also the voltmeter reads 8-9 volts when starting.

Have you checked the injectors? Check to see if you're getting fuel. Also check to see if you're getting spark.

I know i am getting fuel but I have not had a chance to check spark. I do know that the car started a few times even when the ticking could be heard. Could it be the ignition module? or maybe the MSD ignition is bad? I will check for spark tonight. I'm pretty sure that it is an ignition problem. If you have any ideas, I'm all ears. Thanx.
