I have checked the speed sensor. Lines 2-3 reads 853 Ohms. 1-2 and 1-3 read OL (high resistance).
Could the problem be a fuel pressure regulator?
It will start to kick over at one point but will stutter and not be started, don't stop cranking until the rpm starts revving up or you've been cranking for a minute already.
Wait 5 minutes and try again if you crank for a minute and it doesn't start. It will smoke like crazy when it gets going DO NOT turn the car off until it gets up to operating temperaute.
Another suggestion is to remove the air intake boot to the intake and use starter fluid to get the car started. Then replace the intake boot and start the car on it's own holding the pedal down to keep it going until it clears the carbon out of the system. Always run it until it reaches operating temperature (radiator fan comes on or needle points to around 190 deg F) after doing these things so that it will burn off whatever is causing this problem.
If this helps let me know. Click Accept if you get her running this way.
