CRANKS BUT DON'T START, IT'S GETTING FIRE, I WAS TOLD IT COULD BE THE OXYGEN SENSOR, I THOUGHT MAYBE THE FUEL FILTER BECAUSE MY DAUGHTER DRIVES IT ON EMPTY ALL THE TIME

Do below and tell me what happend

Get a starting fluid or ether and spray into the carb or the throttle body on an EFI. Did it start and die? If not disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors- Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
