have you verified that your getting fuel to the rail?

Did you properly set the timing after installing the crank/cam position sensor(two in one sensor on back bank by intake tube)? Or has yours been converted to the two separate sensors under the timing belt cover?

Opps got my years wrong. Thanks Daniel for making me double check myself. Old fart here. Lol No need to adjust yours Sunshine unless yours has been changed over to the older style. On 91-92 the sensor(two sensors in one mounted to the intake cam of the back bank right by inlet tube of throttle body) are adjustable and if you changed the sensor it will need tweeking. The sensor has a slotted adjustment that is used to get the timing back adjusted. 93-99 has two separate sensors that bolt solid in one place and are not adjustable. Some tuners prefer the older sensors for the ability to retard their timing as needed.

Daniel I am getting fuel to the rail. After replacing the fuel pump and filter the car still didn't start so we replaced the crank shaft sensor and the car ran. I drove it for about 3 weeks before it started acting the same as it did before we replaced everything. Is there a way to test the crank shaft sensor to see if it is bad?

When the crank shaft sensor was replaced the harmonic balancer wasn't put on properly it was of balance. Could that have caused the crank shaft sensor to go bad?
