    Well back to basics.

    1. Do you have spark? (test with a simple spark tester) If YES, go to:

    2. Do you have adequate fuel pressure? (test with a fuel pressure gauge hooked up to the fuel rail)? If YES, go to:

    3. Do you have injector pulse (test with a NOID light, although on *some* cars if the tachometer needle moves while cranking, that would tell you that you have crank/cam sensors working) If YES

    4. Do you have compression?
