Test and see if you have spark and fuel preasure, you may have bad feul pump, common problem is the fuel pump goes bad, but check before replacing.

It would be beneficial to know the year, as 2003 for instance has known issues with the wiring harness to the ABS, Cam Position Sensor and the Crankshaft Position Sensor. On my 2003 I had the same symptoms and had no spark. I replaced the Crankshaft position Sensor ($72) and connector ($28 in 2012 money) and spent 10 minutes connecting it. 90% of the time, as reported to me personally by Goodwrench, the crank or cam sensor and/or the connector is the problem.

Is there a check engine light on? Check for codes. If it's the mass air flow it will put out a code. Otherwise it is probably a clogged catalytic converter thats clogged. It will do the same thing. Turn your car on and check the pressure coming out of the back.

Wont start unless I spray starting fluid into air cleaner. run great after that but if you turn it off you have to use starting fluid again . have put new wires plugs rotor cap distb. capand K&N...


A poor spray pattern in the injectors can cause starting issues. Have you tried a good (read not really cheap) fuel injector cleaner like Chevron Techron or Valvoline Synpower fuel system cleaner? A weak ignition system (worn spark plugs, leaking wires) can cause starting issues. You mentioned that it has a K&N filter on it. These filters use an oil in a cotton media to filter out dirt. Sometimes that oil can get out of the filter and contaminate the mass air-flow sensor. Follow the air tube after the filter box and you'll find a sensor in the tube with several wires running from it. It is made from aluminum and the wire housing is plastic. Remove it from the tube and clean it with a mass air-flow sensor cleaner. You HAVE to use a mass air-flow sensor cleaner specifically made for mass air sensors. Don't use anything else like carb, brake, or throttle body cleaner. Those cleaners will leave a residue on the sensor and just cause you more issues.

As for your fuel pressure, the system pressure with the key on, engine off is 60-66 psi. Do you really think you could visually tell the difference between 60 psi and 40 psi? I know I couldn't. You'll have to use a fuel pressure gauge to verify the pressure. For my money, I think your pressure is low. But, cleaning the MAF is much easier then putting a tester in, and it wouldn't hurt, so I would do that first.
