MERCURY TRACER SENSOR PROBLEM

1997 Mercury Tracer • 160,000 miles

Car has spark, fuel, timing belt in time, no check engine light, no error codes. Turns over like it should, just wont fire up. When the ingnition is turned on I can hear the fuel pump prime, but there's a buzzing from what I think might be the throttle position sensor. I could be wrong on the exact sensor name. Like I said though, no error codes present

You may hear the pump, but are you sure it is producing enough pressure? Also, are you getting a good hot blue snapping spark at the plugs? Are the fuel injectors getting power?
