Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Galant
If it is true that you have fuel and fire then the compression is the only other system to look at. A leakdown tester like what you can buy at www.arcolawn.com would do the trick. Otherwise jump the car and have someone crank while you put the palm of your hand over the oil fill. You should feel a good vacuum created by the displacement of the pistons. If not you have compression issues.
Questions I would ask:
Has the engine ingested dirt in the past?
Has the oil ever run extremely low?
Has the coolant been low?
This should help you find the cause of your problem.
Check with the adjustable style spark tester that you have at least 12,000 volts at the plug.
