Engine Mechanical problem
1993 Ford Escort 4 cyl Automatic 171490 miles

After checking and resetting the inertia switch to include replacing the fuel filter in my 1993 Ford escort wagon with a 1.9 L engine, the motorcar still will not start. The vehicle has a new starter, alternator, cooling system, spark pluges and wires, and oil change. What could be stopping it from starting?

Cranks but no start condition:

Fuel and Spark:
Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -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, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
