Would not hurt to put a set of plugs and wire,s in it just to see if that is your issue,if not,next would be the fuel filter,and check the fuel pump by removing the filter and cut car on,be carefull not to get fuel on you,this is best done by someone that has done it before,or a mechanic,it is probably one of these issues,but if not come back here and post your finding,s and me or one of my guru buddys will help you.


Possible leaking injectors...

If you have no spark, very possible it is ignition control module under the coil packs if the 93 has one. Had to replace it on my 90 buick with 3.3 engine.
