Hello, this car has a 3.5 doc. I changed the fuel pump and filter and pump relay. Also changed crank and cam sensors and asd relay. Fuel pump pressure while cranking is 40psi. Compression on all but one cylinder is good. The one bad cylinder on drivers side front has about half of the others, ( about 65psi). I ohmed the coil pack and its ok with plenty of spark while cranking. Pulled the plugs and they come out wet, so injectors must be working. Also used starting fluid just in case. The timing belt was done about 6 mo. Ago but checked to see if both cams are turning. They are. Still no start! HELP! I'm about to blow it up for revenge!

Try this have helper crank engine over and listen to the injector/s whether its clicking-are they clicking if so-check the fuel pressure and comeback with the readings.

I'll be waiting for the readings in order to proceed-standing by.

Hello and thank you for your time. I listened to an injector with a stethescope and yes I hear the clicking. The fuel pressure is the same at 38psi. I checked the new timing belt and it has good tension. Could the belt have slipped anyway? How can I tell?

Lets check one more time for spark making sure it still there before we go into valve and igntion timing. Is this been down 6 mos ago or few days ago?

I will check spark again tomorrow. The car has been down for a week now, so timing belt was done six months ago. Started just fine a week ago then just died. Good night.

Checked spark ok, fuel pressure ok. Checked timing belt tension and teeth ok. Listened to all injectors ok. Stumped! What can I do?

Its weird all right-okay lets verify the valve and ignition timing-pull out no.1 plug crank engine in burst while you have an index finger in the opening till you feel pressure-now manually turn crankshaft over and verify that the piston on no.1 is at the highest point/TDC-now look at the damper and timing marks are they lined-up?
