    IF you are sure it has PROPER SPARK and FUEL PRESSURE, unplug the throttle position sensor (TPS) and try to start. Possible stuck sensor causing a no injector pulse condition. Possible!!

    i put a light wire tester on the crank sensor wire and seems like there's no poss power coming. is there always suppose to be poss wire on every sensor? the timing is my last choice but i really dont thing its the timing
