Hi, just a random idea: are all the cables to the plugs okay? If there is no ignition, the problem could be there.

SOURCE: Car will not start.Engine turns over but spark plugs willnot fire

I would say replace ignition coil, that might me the problem, otherwise it can be the ecu, which might have some electrical problems not allowing the car to stay running. Good luck.

Does it have the 2.3l Quad 4 engine? If so replace the plastic piece that the coils go into, they go bad and leak spark to the cam towers and then you get a nice one or multiple cylinder misfire.

I got a opel kadett 1.4 patrol. I change distributor, coil pack and module but still no spark

If you have a distributor, it means you have a points ignition?? This is really old school, so check the point gap and the condenser. What model is this car?

I've got an opel kadett cub 1991 model,it seems to struggle in a hill and when its hot it switches its self,and I have to wait for it to cool down and start it again. What might be the problem

check the timing, improper would cause loss of power and relate to heating. make sure you do not have a brake dragging. Coils (spark generator) often quit when they get hot if going bad. sometimes you can feel if it is heating up excessively by touching it after it is on for awhile. check coolant, oil, and compression for leakage or mixing= head gasket problem.

Opel kadett 160is 1995 engin light comes on but goes off afte some time

Why would you replace all that, was the car missing or running bad..Sounds like a possible oxygen sensor, after it gets warm then it starts working correctly, or a maf sensor maybe the cone filter is interfering with the readings from it

Check the tank vent hoses on the filler pipe in the wheel arch, if the show hair cracks replace the lot up and down the tank, very common problem with the Kadett.

please specify the actual year of this vehicle as the opel kadett was stopped in about 93 and the astra introduced ,in europe anyway so please state the exact year and build country as this can vary as well ,been caught out on this before with ford escort ,and a californian model that bears no resembelence to a europeon model of the same year
