Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

Do you have injector pulse? Have you checked compression?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I have a pulse and the compression is good
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

Fuel, spark, compression, timing. One is missing if you have a no start.

Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

Try spraying starting fluid in the carb, will it run?

Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

In the throttle body, not carb.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I also changed my plugs twice because they keep getting wet with gas.
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

So you are not getting spark then it sounds like.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I sprayed the throttle no start

is there a main relay under the dash on that year?
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

The PGM Fi main relay is under the hood

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I checked all the relays and fuses
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

Have you checked fuel pressure?

Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

Do you have any codes? Do you have a scan tool that can read live data?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I havn't checked for fuel pressure yet ,my battery was dead so I don't have a code but I do have a code reader
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

Also if the plugs are soaked with gas, then they could be fouled

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
it seems like the injectors are spraying too much gas
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

This could happen if the injectors were stuck open, but for all of them to do this is rare.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
what if my spark is not strong enough?
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

This is tough to diagnose without being there to see the spark you are getting.
