Alright, I checked fuses, replaced fuel pump and fuel filter with new, checked starter, checked to see if I was getting spark, and spark was good, starter was good, timing belt wasn't broken, and fuses where good. I am at a stand still right now, I don't know what else to check for. Can't seem to figure out the problem. She spins just won't engage. Acts like it is a fuel problem. Pulled the fuel rail and only got gas sprayed out from one injector. I'm thinking maybe my injectors are bad, 3 out of 4 went out at once that is crazy right? Doesn't seem too crazy though stranger things have happened. So any idea on why it won't engage?
Do you

Welcome to 2CarPros.

Hi Chris. Listen, what I need you to do is check for an injector pulse at each of the injectors. There could be a wiring issue, they could be plugged, or the pump may not be working.

The easiest way to confirm a fuel related issue is to see if it starts for a couple seconds if you use starting fluid. If it does and then stalls, you'll know if it is fuel related.

Here is a link that explains how to check injectors:

Take a look through it and let me know if you have questions. Also, when you replaced the fuel pump, did you also replace the fuel filter and make sure the pump is running?

Let me know.
