Try spraying some quick start in the intake, if it runs for a bit, it's a fuel problem. Iff it still doesn't run, check spark at the plugs

Could be crank sensor.

I tried spraying starting fluid and still didn't spark. I checked the plugs for spark and it had spark

Which crank sensor would it be . the one in distributor or the one by crank pulley. Cuz the car has problems with rough idle and starting problems

Crank sensor is the one by pulley but if u sprayed starting fluid and still didn't start and u said u have spark, it's something else. If injectors are not opening it would've started by spraying starting fluid in the intake anyway bacause ur bypassing injectors. It might be ur catalytic converter plugged up or evap system

Try replacing crank sensor first, it's cheaper and easier

The catalytic converter is new with new exhaust. When I had it running before it wud run like crappie and hesitate when I accelerate hard . I have everything new since the build . Only thing wud be the crank sensor

My b18c1 motor don't have a crank sensor on oil pump

I was looking this up and yours has the crank sensor inside the distributor I would replace the entire distributor unit

Alright thanks . IL try that

I got my distributor today and I installed it and now it backfires when I crank over. I tried turning the piece that goes in cam and still nothing
