This car started shaking when taking off, when I got up to speed it ran fine, untill I slowed down and it died. Since then I replaced the computer under the driver seat, the spark plugs and wires, the ignition coil. Its getting gas to the fuel rail.I checked the fuel pump shut off switch. I got a new battry.I did a spark test on the new plugs and coil, and it had good spark. I sprayed starting fluid into the throttle body and it did nothing. Seems that the injectors are not letting the fuel or starting fluid come through to the cylinders. What could this be? Could it be the crank, or cam sensor? If so where are they located?

With starting fluid it shoudl at least sputter if its gettng compression and spark even if the cam sensor was bad.

If you can get ahold of a noid light and hook it up to the injector harness and crank it. It should flash. If it does your getting a cam refrence. If not well need to test that.

Let me know what you find.
