    Ok.

    CAR NO WORKIE!

    1) Fuel
    - Is it getting fuel to the filter?
    - Is it getting fuel to the fuel rail?

    2) Spark
    - Do you have Spark at your spark plugs while cranking?

    As long as you get fuel and spark then you should fire. Most anything else would just make it run like shit once its fired up.
