Has fuel pressure and spark, but I would say that you have a bad sensor, maybe cam or crank.
The best way to tell is to have a scan tool hooked up and find the code(s) and please let me know what you find.

I have replaced the head gasket on my 2000 sephia. Had the head surfaced and valves seated and checked, after haveing all that done i get it put back togather and all the wireing checked, now it wont start...

No fire at the plugs means no power to the coil/coils or the coil/coils are bad. You say it won't start, I'll take that it does crank over and won't fire. You have to have power from the switch to the coil, coil to distributor, and cranking sends fire to plugs. With a test light, check that there IS power from the switch and ongoing. This is a must do.

dear friend-to me it sounds like you have a intermmitend spark,it could be that your plug lead sparkplug or coil pack can be at fault,fuel gets injected into the cylinder but only ignites every second time around meaning two injections one spark in an overfueled cylinder,please be careful the back fire will damage the airflow sensor
