First check power to the coil. Pull the connector off and probe the connector terminal from the pink wire with a 12 volt test light. Connect the test light clip to a ground point/bolt on the engine. The test light should come on when the ignition switch is on. If not, suspect the ECM-1 fuse is bad or the ignition switch is bad.
If there is power to the coil, next test the coil. Run a jumper from the battery positive terminal to the pink terminal on the coil itself. Pull the coil wire off the distributor and place the wire close (within 1/4 inch) to a ground point on the engine. Then, briefly touch a jumper from the black/white coil terminal to engine ground. The coil should release a spark. If not, replace the coil.
If the coil is good, suspect the crankshaft position sensor is bad or loose. I'm assuming your engine light is off, but the sensor can fail without setting the engine light. If the engine light is on, see if you can get a scan to see if a crankshaft sensor trouble code is set.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

BE WARNED!!! i was a GM mechanic for years, i personally found out for myself, that many if those pumps bought from parts stores auto zone, orielly's, napa, etc... have the possibility of being bad from the factory, i once worked on a 98 silverado, the customer had replaced the pump 3 times with an auto zone pump, every time the pump would either not even start the truck or it would loose pressure within a week or two. after we installed a new GM pump he no longer had an issue, sometimes its worth it to pay a little bit more and buy a pump from a dealer, plus if you buy a GM part, it comes with a 5 year 100,000 mile warranty, even if you buy it over the counter and install it yourself.

This starting issue sounds like either the ignition timing is way off, or the cam timing is, the whinning sounds like the timing chain may have been replaced with a non silent type chain (plastic cam gear teeth), maybe the onwer got this wrong when he installed it and the cam timing is off.

one of two reasons:
1- the part of the shaft which comes in contact with the lip of the seal has a groove in it
2- there is a brass bushing behind the seal in the tail of the trans which is meant to hold the shaft steady; if it is worn, then the shaft is moving out of range of the seals' ability to remain in contact with it.

You do not have any rear daytime running lights.
