Engine cranks but won't start sounds like it wants to start but is lacking that last little bit needed to. In trying to get car to start have replaced the crankshaft sensor, both ignition coils, spark plugs and the ignition control module, and car still won't start have sprayed ether and nothing that didn't even get it to start for a few seconds. Car is getting spark and fuel. Have no clue what else could cause car to not start. Please help!

Yes 4cyl. The 2.2 model. Only just started, had parked the car cause the radiator got a whole in it, so stoped using while trying to find/order one. When got it and put it in the car wouldn't start.
