Just because you have fuel present at rail dosent mean its going threw injectors.there is a fuel pump in gas tank.If this pump is not putting out the right amount of pressure the fuel will not pressurise and spray out of injectors.I would do a fuel pressure check and you might find out you need a fuel pump.I would also check for clogged fuel filter.Dont rule out that this could also be an ignition problem.Check for spark.These few things should help you out.Thats why when you bring to dealer they plug car into computer and analize all the things so the dont change anything the dont have to.As a home mechanic you have to go by process of elimination.But somtimes this can get real costly,never mind very aggervating.Keep your cool and keep going,you have come this far but if i were to guess, id say its your fuel pump and filter.Good luck.

97 oldsmobile achieva wont fire changed coil pack spark plugs cam sensor still wont start

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
If you having a problem with more than one system, I want to check for rpm signal, that usually comes from the crank sensor. Not sure why you replaced cam sensor? I always want to check sensor wiring circuits before replacing anything. Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.

Mitsubishi endeavor 2004 coil pack burnt out changed and turns over but no start spark plugs wet from fuel but not starting

There are so many possibilities, fuse, command module, crank signal? Is the module getting 12 volts. It is rarely a whole ignition coil pack goes out unless of a short. Was the unit burned up? If not, it could have a bad crank position signal. The cam sensor is mainly for fuel and crank sensor is mainly for spark.

Have 94 grand dam change fuel pump change presure regulater and relay pump stays runnig and car wont start

If by cranking you mean the engine starts then you are having fuel issues. If the car starts with starting fluid then you either don't have fuel pressure or the injectors are not opening. After starting with starting fluid does it continue to run until you shut it off or does it shut off on its own?

Either way you will need to install a fuel pressure gauge to make sure you have enough fuel pressure. If you do have fuel pressure then you will need to make sure the injectors are firing. There is a tool available called a noid light or injector pulse light. You will need to unplug one of the injectors and plug this tester into the connector. If the light flashes while cranking then the injector is being companded to fire. If the light does not flash then you either have a bad engine computer or a control module. More than likely it is the control module. The control module uses the input from the crankshaft position sensor to fire the coil and the injectors the module may be loosing the signal for the injector.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

The dis fuse kept blowing so changed the coils that stoped but it still wont start

Check that fuel or starting fluid introduced to the intake starts or doesn't start the engine when cranking. If it does start, for a few seconds, and then quits, then the fuel pump is not delivering fuel to the engine, or the crankshaft sensor isn't sensing movement and calling for the computer to deliver fuel to the engine.

One can also pressure check the fuel rail to see if fuel pressure is present. Check that you hear or sense a ticking from the fuel injectors as the engine rotates. If no ticking present, or the a noid light for the injectors connected to the injector harness is not blinking, then the computer may be bad.

If the engine doesn't start after introducing gas or starting fluid to the intake, then there is a possible ignition problem which can be caused by a bad module for the coil packs, that the coil packs sit on.

Check the air gap on the crank shaft sensor, if it does not have a .50 gap it will not send signal to fire coil pack repy to this post if you need more help.
