Try disconnecting the battery negative cable for a few minutes, this will reset the ECM, with all you have replaced it needs a reset. Then try to start it, if it won't start check if you have spark from the ignition coil, if you don't change the ignition module and distributor pickup coil.


i disconnect the battery and checked for spark and it still wont start up it will crank and a split second it will sound like it will start but keeps on cranking. i even checked to see if fuel is getting to it and it is.


Try spraying a little starting fluid into the intake tube, if it starts then you have a fuel delivery problem.


if it is a fuel delivery problem what can i do to fix it?


Find out why delivery is so poor. Could be a bad fuel pressure caused by either a plugged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump, or no injector pulse or no injector power, plugged injectors.


now it wont start unless i have my foot on the pedal and when it does start it will die. does that mean its a fuel problem?


Still could be. Did you try the starting fluid?


yea i tried it but it didnt start. the only time it will is if i have my foot on the pedal
