1991 Lexus ES 250 Ignition Problem - Won't start

I'm trying to fix a 1991 Lexus ES 250 that someone gave me. They said that their wife was driving it and the car just suddenly quit. Since then the car hasn't started. It tries to turn over but doesn't start. The battery is good, spark is good, ECM has been replaced with no effect, everything seems to be good, but it just won't start. Any suggestions?

    I've checked the timing belt and it appears to be in good condition. I've also checked the fuel pump and filter using the methods described in my repair manual, and both are fine. I just can't figure this out.

    Are you getting fuel?  Have you checked the fuel pump and filter?

try a cheap fix... buy a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze and put them in the tank either right away or at your next fill up of gas. it sounds like water in your gas.
