CHEVROLET CAVALIER ENGINE PROBLEM

1998 Chevrolet Cavalier • 210,000 miles

Car cranks but wont start-will not fire at all, I checked the fuel pressure and there is power to the injectors, tested the coil packs they work -good blue spark, I sprayed starting fluid into the throttle body but the car still will not fire at all

If you have good spark and the engine won't start with starting fluid, either the engine is out of time or you have compression that is too low to run the engine. Double check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail to confirm it is within spec. If it is and you have good spark, check timing and then engine compression.
