Cranks-fuel, available behind injectors valves, cranks- electrically ok- spark?- Good spark during cranking. Compression?
Fuel pump not running. You have pressure so try squirting some gas in(tiny bit). The engine controller is the injector driver, both in crank, and run key positions. Maybe the wiring going to the interior engine controller is bad somewhere, or the controller is bad. The fuel pump relay has two windings, one generates a field coil and acts as a magnet, and the other gets pulled in by the magnet and if it has ground it sends the voltage through the fuel pump. Whats the compression? It uses a airflow sensor for running. It uses other sensors but the airflow sensor is the controllers chief of command. If this sensor for any reason does not report to the controller, no nothing. Also, if you have no injector pulse, the controller is either not being told to act, or it hasn't ground or power from even a small fuse in different locations under the hood(1) or in the interior(fuse box). The most problems they had were timing belts(affects airflow sensor and compression, or fuses and circuitry(wiring problems including connections. Its an old engine, probably a 1.5. Those cars were great, and I owned two myself. 77's but I did play with quite a few, from 83 to 99, successfully. Do you hear the pump running ok? It may be a supply for injector driver, distributor(on some) or airflowsensor problem. I really hope you can get it. It bugs me when I know any car has problems. Your so welcome, I love answering, but I'm not an expert, just never, ever give up, unless of course, it is fixed, and I said 'down the road". Lol I'll always give you as much help as I can. Good day.
