Check for spark.. pull one spark plug out set it on bare metal(away from cyl hole fuel could light from spark) turn vehicle over and look for spark should be a nice lightning bolt looking spark... blue spark is weak spark.. and see if it's getting spark...,, if not,,."try new plugs.,wires,distributor cap&rotor " also first.spray a little starting fluid down the injection system turn it over and see if it fires.if it does then it's a fuel issue prob not electrical... try that.hope it helps

To be sure it's getting fuel, do a double check by buying a can of starting fluid and give a heavy 5 second spray into the air cleaner intake, then attempt to start.

Check the timing chain. You are sure that fuel is reaching the cylinders? spray starting fluid into the air intake and see if it fires up.

Testimonial: "timing chain is fine. after trying to start it plugs are dry. getting fuel from lines separated at fuel rail. not sure what pressure. but it sprays like hell. getting a pulse at injs"

    Use the comment link please. If the plugs are dry then fuel is not getting to the cylinders. So you must be incorrect about the injectors. Like I said get a can of spray starting fluid and see if it fires up and stalls out.

I doubt it.
If the engine is cranking, the starter is working.
If the engine will not start, you need to know if you have spark at the plugs, fuel pressure at the injectors, and normal compression.

If you live in a cold climate your gas line may be frozen or you may have water in your gas adding gas line antifreeze may help.
