Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a problem with a 2003 mazada protege getting it to start.  It will crank ,  you hear
the cyl fire but quickly stops.  Do it again and it stops firing.  I hooked a fuel pressure
gage up on the return line after the pressure regulator,  got 63 psi. There is new coils,new
sparkplug wires new sparkplugs,  the cam sensor wasreplaced the crank shaft sensor.
Was replaced,  a valve job was done on the head.i wonder why it wont start? Do you have
any ideas what i can look for.? Thanks. Jesse
