spread fuel in air intake
Expert:  Dan replied 9 months ago.

If you are sure spark is good and spraying fuel into intake didn't help next step would be a compression test. Let me know what compression readings are, thanks.

how do you a compression test
Expert:  Dan replied 9 months ago.

You remove fuel pump relay, remove spark plug, install compression tester in spark plug hole, then turn engine over for 2-4 seconds to check compression readings. Let me know how it goes, thanks.
