Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are several things that can cause a no start condition and it will take some testing to know exactly what you have going on. You could have a bad fuel pump or a loss of power or ground to it, you may have a bad crank sensor, the problem could be cam timing if the engine cranks fast and freely now.

Does the fuel pump run when the key is turned on?
Have you checked for fault codes?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
the fuel pump runs with the ignition on and it starts when starter fluid us sprayed Inge TBI.
