Ok so we still need to see how much fuel pressure u have to see if its enough to run. So u have spark for sure?The best way to check for spark is to remove two wires off the coil and have someone crank it over while u watch for spark and then put those wires back on and take the other two off and do the same thing to make sure u have spark on both coils. Is ur oil full?Let me know.

Oil level is good, and I checked for spark again and I have fire. Shouldnt the spark be bright blue? If so mine are an orangeish blue. I will try to get a fuel pressure gauge tommorw and let u know the pressure. My service light has been on since I bought the car if that helps

Ur spark sounds ok did u know u can rent tools at auto zone for free.U just pay retail value when u rent it and when u return it u get ur money back they have all kinds of tools fuel pressure gauges and if u dont live in california I think u can rent a scan tool. If u can rent a scan tool get one that can do whats called datastream and we will see if u have codes and we can look at some sensor values. Let me know what u find.
