CAR NOT STARTING

1992 Toyota Celica

1992 Toyota Celica

It turns over, but the car doesn't start. Sometimes it will act like it is going to start for a second, but then doesn't start, like it's not getting fuel.

What could cause this?
Troubleshooting tips?

Cranks and w/n start

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
