HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

The ignition coil needs to be tested with ohmmeter for proper resistance and replaced if out of specs

Primary resistance ............................................. 0.4 - 0.5 ohms Secondary resistance ........................................... 10 - 14 K ohms

And even though there is fuel at the injectors, if pressure is too low it wont start, so fuel pressure should also be tested

Fuel Pressure Vacuum to pressure regulator ................. 33 - 37 psi (226 - 265 kPa)

No vacuum to pressure regulator .......... 40.8 - 41.7 psi (281 - 287 kPa)

If both ok, we will go from there
