    If the inducer is running then I would check the pressure switch. Actually need a little more information from you.

    Check the differential pressures to see what the draft is running at. Check the length of run on the venting, are you near the edge of it's limit. Check gas pressure's to see if the unit is over fired. Check the burner's for damage, warping or cracking and alignment...Is the unit piped direct vent and if so is it clear...if not is there enough combustion air...

    This boiler might have the HSI that doubles as a flame sensor.
    As it ages it might still be a good HSI, but drops the ball as a flamer sensor. After the inducer fan proves it is next in line for ignition, which it may do. But not work as a flame sensor, fire and drop out and repeat.
