I have a 99 escort that when you try to start it it turns over but doesnt start it doesnt even sound like it is getting gas but everything has been checked we hooked a code reader up and didnt get a code wondering if the computer is faulty. Any advice?

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.

Verify the fuel pressure if its within specs and the injectors are pulsing
