Vehicle will not start. Had a problem with the harmonic

Customer Question

Vehicle will not start. Had a problem with the harmonic balancer and the crankshaft position sensor and changed them out. Just put a new fuel filter on and I'm getting fuel but the engine just won't fire up
JA: Does the vehicle stall at low speeds? Does it sputter?
Customer: It stalled a couple times before I changed the sensor and balancer and then before I changed the filter. I just got I back together today and it started right up one but sputtered out and died now I can't get it to fire up again
JA: What is the make/model/year of your car?
Customer: 1992 Buick Regal 3.8l
JA: Are you fixing your Regal yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: so far I have been doing the repairs myself. I had taken it to a local mechanic but they were unable to diagnose it because they said they weren't that familiar with obd 1 vehicles. Like I said I changed the harmonic balancer and crank positiong sensor because they were shot. I also changed the fuel filter, mass air sensor and the alternator
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No mam there is nothing else I can think of
