I've got a 1990 Buick Electra that won't start it turns over good but I'm not getting any fire to the sparkplugs. I checked the wires and fuses and they're ok and I've changed the crank sensor, but still not getting any fire, what should I check next? Thank you for your help!

Check your fuel pressure at rail. Should be 41-47 psi
