1993 Suzuki: starting starter..alternator is ok..wiring

Resolved Question:

Have a 1993 Suzuki Sierra Jimny. Lately having starting issues. Been through new starter, battery, alternator is ok, ignition wiring etc. Sounds like wants to start, all systems go, but will not "fire". Last two places have said it's fine (because it's currently starting!).

Is it cranking over at the correct speed?Is fuel pressure and spark and compression good?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I think so, has recently had revving adjusted as was over-revving - i.e 1500 rpm in park. Lately more often in shop than on the road. Sparks done last year.

Ok try this .Disconnect the battery and clean the throttle body and throttle plate really well .Then reconnect the battery and see if you still have this issue.If there is still an issue then have the coolant temperature sensor checked next.these would be the next steps.Hoped this helped.Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
