The car ran great and then shut of to go shopping and came back out and car was dragging. I realized the A/C Compressor pulley froze up. Took home to the garage and took the belt off and confirmed the a/c was seized up. The belt is now off after I replaced the battery and starter and even put new plugs in it. The engine cranks over but won't run. I have spark and I have fuel 45 psi as the manual stated. I can't figure out what else it could be. I even replaced the fuse for the anti-theft. What else could it be?

Hi:
Do you get a good hot blue spark? Also, if you remove the plugs, are they wet with gas?

If you have fuel and spark, the engine should run unless it's out of time or it's lacking compression. But that doesn't follow through with what happened.

Have you checked timing or compression? Have you checked if the injectors are getting power? I believe the injector plug is on the intake and you can check there for a pulse to the injectors.
