Hi welcome to JA.com.I will answer your question the best I can,

If you ave spark and fuel ,then i suggest you check the compression and timing belt .

If you are sure you have spark then try spraying start helper spray down the throttle body
when cranking the car if the car starts then you have a fuel problem ,eg. you could have fuel pressure but the injectors might no be opening .

If the car does not start with the spray then check the compression and timing belt as said above.

If you need further assistance please let me know.

I have checked the injectors,I have sprayed it with help start timing belt and timing is right

but the engine won't start.It sounds like the engines fireing timing and injector is not correct.Can it be the crank sensor and if it is how can I test it.
