WILL NOT START

2003 Suzuki Aerio

Electrical problem
2003 Suzuki Aerio 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 77000 miles

Car had lost coolant due to rotted radiator hose. When this happened, car slowly lost acceleration power and would not accelerate past 45 mph. When car was brought to a stop, it would not restart. Initial troubleshooting determines that spark is getting to the plugs. It almost appears as if it is not getting fuel to the injectors. I pulled the fuel hose near the injectors and it would pump fuel when key turned on. It does not ever sound like it is firing when attempting to start.
