I have a 96 Z28 5.7 LT1, My son was driving it, going about 20 MPH and it stalled and would not restart. Put the OBD 2 scanner on it and read Throttle Position Sensor low voltage and Bank 2 Sensor 1 faults. Installed new TPS sensor and still cranks but will not start, Fuel pressure is good and has spark. I have not installed the new O2 sensor yet, Will the o2 sensor cause it not to start? I dont think so, if anyone has a clue please reply, Thanks.

Nope, O2 will not prevent it from starting. In fact, OBDII is smart enough that the vehicle will usually start and run without you even knowing there is a problem with it.

Things that come to mind which would prevent a start are ignition module, fuel pump, crank position sensor, etc. I would expect a Haynes manual would have simple diagnostic procedures to check those things using a digital volt-ohm meter. The TPS can be diagnosed with a volt-ohm meter as well. Perhaps you have a broken wire or loose connection somewhere instead of a bad TPS.

i had the same problem with mine.when you turn the key on can you hear the fuel pump kick on and presure up.thats what wasnt working on mine but it turned out it was the vats system or anit theft.if you have a spare key try using that one.my resitor went bad in my key.

I still need some advice. I replaced ignition coil, ignition coil module and have spark but no fire. if I had a bad crank position sensor would that prevent a start and wouldn't it show up with a fault code the OBD II scanner. I'm trying to narrow this down and my experience with this setup is minimal.

as i said before you replaced the coil and module, ignition is probably not your problem...i would figure more like fuel...maybe a filter, pump, maf ,or map sensor,tps sensor, so on...the tps sensor in this car is adjustable, no???you cant just pop it in and expect it to read correctly...it needs to be zeroed out...(i believe)...check for injector pulse...there could be a bad ground at the injector rail making problems with your tps, and injector rail!!!definately look into the ground thing...you need to get a gm noid lite to test, but they can be gotten at autozone for cheap money, and you`ll be surprised hw often you can use them to diagnose a problem...

Eric...What is your measured fuel pressure at the service port?You should have 40 psi or more.remember the injectors still need to be pulsed to inject fuel.A noid light plugged into an injector connector while cranking will assist your diagnosis.The noid light should flash and will confirm that the ckt is complete and controlled by the PCM.Your ECT sensor should read engine temp also.If not the A/F may be lean or rich depending.

We think alike.lol.I am sure you have also seen little rodents this time of year that just love to nibble on wiring insulation on a cozy warm intake manifold.Something to look out for also.:thumbsup:
