I have fuel, compression, spark and it doesn't even try to start. It has left me sit 3 times because it was running, but shut off. It now hasn't started since the last time. It crank, I see fuel spraying down the throttle body, I pulled different plugs and see a reddish spark, but the plugs seem wet with fuel. I've cleaned and dried the plugs and even tried another set. I'm using a Chiltons manual to troubleshoot, but I'm at the point it doesn't seem to tell me enough detail. Is it possible that the spark is not delivered at the right time? I'm used to non-computer controlled engines with mechnical timing. Does this engine need feedback from sensors at startup in order to kick over. Is this reddish spark enough to ignite the fuel? What test can I perform to troubleshoot further?
