Engine Performance problem
1996 Chevy Corsica 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles

the car cranks and won't start. I sprayed fuel into the throttle body, nothing happened, I checked for spark and it has got good spark. Fuel pump turns on. The battery is good and clean. All fuses are good. I don't suspect the timing chain because the car ran fine, then it was parked then all of a sudden wouldn't start. Please help me out and what could the problem be?

Priming it won't make it kick-good spark, timing chain intact-fuel pressure unknown-but should fire up when primed-

Check the engine's compression and report back

Getting fuel? Check fuel pressure regulator

I checked the compression on the cylinders and it pulled 90 psi. What does that mean?

Are they all 90? That is real low. Did you check spark on all 4 cylinders?
