Welcome to just answer.com. I'm here to help you and your 100% satisfaction is my goal. Let's make sure that the engine room we'll move on and we haven't run into a timing problem. Using supplemental fuel such as starting fluid spray some into the air intake and tell me if the engine runs momentarily. If it does then we know the engine is in good running condition and we have good spark

Sounds good this is probably a faulty fuel pump using a mechanical fuel pressure test gauge tell me what the fuel pressure reading is while cranking the engine

Sounds good this is probably a faulty fuel pump using a mechanical fuel pressure test gauge tell me what the fuel pressure reading is while cranking the engine, this is either going to be a lack of fuel pressure or a lack of fuel injector pulse coming from the PC M
