1997 xk8's are known for flooding and not starting.
First you need to make sure you do have fuel as it could be a fuel pump, if you do have fuel then spray starter fluid into the butter fly, just a small amount and crank the car with your foot all the way down on the gas, you should be able to get it running like this, I would not replace the injectors...
Although you may need to remove the coil packs and clean the plugs also.

Engine turns over but my Saab 900i s won't start, and fuel not getting into engine, but, I have nearly half a tank, can the crank sensor stop the injectors from sending fuel into engine?


Yes, it will. The crank sensor sends pulses to the vehicle computer, which uses them to synchronize the firing of the injectors with the rotation of the engine. If there is no input from the crank sensor, there will be no injector pulse and no spark pulse.

I have a 1991 Buick skylar the injectors are not pulsating but it start if I use starting fluid


It sounds like a weak fuel pump. When you stated that the car with start off ether. Did you mean that it would start and stall or that it would stay running. If it starts and then dies you will need to look at a lot more components. Including: (The fuel filter, fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel injectors, fuel pressure regulator, oil sending unit, Cam sensor, ignition module, or coil) Your engine needs fuel and spark to run, check to see if you have both. Please write back with any findings or questions. Be as specific as you can. Good luck.

  • Engine fuel temperature sensor which measures the pressure of the fuel near the fuel injectors. This signal is used by the PCM to adjust the fuel injector pulsewidth and meter fuel to each engine combustion cylinder.

    Fuel injectders ,not opening up


    1 : If the engine is hard to start when hot, check fuel pressure and check the injector for leaks.

    2: If the injector does not operate when the engine that is hard to start is cranked, the following as well
    as the injector itself may be responsible.
    (1) Faulty power supply circuit to the engine control unit, faulty ground circuit
    (2) Faulty MFI relay
    (3) Faulty crankshaft position sensor, camshaft position sensor

    3. If there is any cylinder whose idle state remains unchanged when the fuel injection of injectors is cut
    one after another during idling, make following checks about such cylinder.
    (1) Injector and harness check
    (2) Ignition plug and high tension cable check
    (3) Compression pressure check

    4: If the injector harness and individual part checked good but the injector drive time is out of
    specification, the following troubles are suspected.
    (1) Poor combustion in the cylinder (faulty ignition plug, ignition coil, compression pressure, etc.)
    (2) Loose EGR valve seating
    (3) High engine resistance
