Engine Mechanical problem
1994 BMW 318 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 120000 miles

cranks but wont start. Replaced coil pack and there is plenty of spark. Looks like tons of fuel going in and seems flodded. Let it dry and took spark plugs out an dry up. Took fuse out for fuel pump and cranked until it dried up. Put all back together and still wont fire up.
seemed to back fired acouple of times.

car was running perfect then parked for two days and then this happened

Put a timing light on #1 and see if the spark is at the correct time, you may have a plausible crank or cam sensor failure.
