Did you check the injectors for pulsing? Try some starting fluids.
Have you checked the compression pressure?
Was anything done prior to it not starting?

When you crank it, it acts like its starting and then its stop. Spark is ok, fuel is ok.I don't know if the cam and crank sensors working.

If it is crank or cam sensor problem most likely trouble codes would be stored in PCM. You would most likely not have any sparks or injector pulsing.

Check the engine compression.
Was any repairs carried prior to this occurring?
Did engine overheated?

No repair was carried prior to this occurring.
But owner said that check engine light did come on.
But the problem is this the battry was removed from the car therefore,
there is no code stored in the PCM.

If you try cranking the engine for prolonged periods, if there are any trouble codes, they might betriggerred.

If vehicle had been idle for extended periods, check the engine compression. They can drop resulting in non starting.
