I was driving and all of a sudden the car stalled. after coming to a stop I tried starting the car and it just turns over but dose not start. checked timing belt, checked for spark and the fuel pump seems to be priming when I turn the key.I also replaced the ignition control module and replaced the fuel filter. I also sprayed starter fluid down the intake manafold and still nothing. It just turns over and dose not fire up. Any suggestions on why it still will not start?

It would seem that if you had spark, the starter fluid would have lit off for a second or two. Are you sure you're getting spark to the plugs?
lawrenceg, I'm sure I'm getting spark , because I pulled a plug out and kept it connected to the spark plug wire and set it close to some metal. I then turned it over and saw good strong spark. Could this be a computer problem?

As long as the spark is strong, then the ignition sounds ok. If you pull a plug after cranking the engine, is the plug wet with fuel? What is the fuel pressure? Are the injectors opening? Do you have any trouble codes stored? Sorry far all the questions but it's important to get all the info before replacing any other parts.
The plugs are dry when I pull them out after trying to start it. I do not know what the fuel pressure is reading. I do not have a guage. I did not check for any codes because the car can not move. it's at my house. If the plugs are dry dose that mean it is not getting any fuel?
