No I dint replace the rotor. Today I changed plugs, sprayed oil in cylenders, and just looked over the engine as a whole. I pulled on the trottle and I looked down in to the Throttle Body, there is a large pool of gas in the botton of the Throttle body. So the car is not getting gas to the cylenders, right?

It has compression and timming. So if gas isnot getting out of body than its not getting to cylenders so ya I need help.

Do you
have the same problem?

But would that prevent gas getting in to the cylenders?

Oh true, ya it dont pop off at all. And one more thing, that gas has been sitting in there over this weekend, do you think if I turn it over a bunch with the plug pulled for the injector it would use that fuel up than pop off?

Sorry I dint give you all the details, ill start from the beginning. A few years ago it stopped getting gas and would not run. Me and dad poured gas in the throttle body and it would run. I replaced the pump, fuel filter, injector, fuel pump relay, wires. It still did not work so me and my friend hauled it to school. There we replaced the oil pressure switch. Still no gas than we hot wired the pump and replaced the ignition module. Than we got a injector pulse and gas, it would now inject. We than tried to start it but it wouldn't start so we sprayed ether in the throttle body and it wouldn't start so we checked for spark, it does get spark. We than called my dad to help us out and he noticed the pool of gas. The thing is it ran before we replaced the ignition module and that was only 2 weeks ago

Check the fuel pressure if its within specs and also if the injectors are pulsing and getting spark again-start again

Ok, it seems good, like it all lines up when it is spose to. I dont think its the timming it has to be in the gas system from the TBI to the intake valves.

Ok it is not getting gas in cylenders, the timing checked out ok. ( Shop teacher is telling me that) so from what I understand the gas just pools in the intake insted of coming into the cylenders. What could cause this? The air idler valve?
