Have you checked it for a broken timing belt?

Belts ok, new 2k miles ago, but I checked it again to make sure. I pulled a fuel injector out and cranked it, fuel leaked in and it fired up, put it back and didnt fire. Changed the crank and cam angle sensors, still wont fire

Did the fuel spray out or just kinda dribble? If it didn't spray out with some pressure you either have a fuel restriction or a bad fuel pump. Do you have more info you would like to share that may be helpful? Let us know

Not sure, how much gas flowed/trickled I was by myself, so I couldnt see how much fuel was going in when I cranked the key. But when I pulled out the injector it sprayed all over me. And when I disconnected the line on the outgoing side of the filter it had a lot of pressure on it, again sprayed all over me :)

Test the fuel system for proper pressure and volume/flow

I remembered the old adage, check the easy things first. I cranked the engine over with the fuel line off, nothing. So I ripped the dash apart to check the pump relay, then I pulled the pump out, took it in the garage to hook it up to a battery charger to test it, nothing. So I rubbed the two leads together and you can guess the rest, pouff the oil pan under the pump caught fire so I ran it outside. Then I knew the pump was bad.

Thanks for the help!
