So, I have a Crank no start issue but everything is a okay (I've checked everything.) I've tried Starter fluid but I couldn't get the throttle body to open up so I basically sprayed it in the air tube, behind the air sensor so as not to mess with that. I held down the gas pedal but to no avail I don't think the throttle body even opened up. Is there another way I could inject the starter fluid into the system?

Is the fuel pump definitely running when you turn the key on? Are the spark plugs definitely firing? Spark, fuel, compression...in that order.

If the tension is bad on the timing belt, it could slip and cause bad things to happen. Wouldn't hurt to check timing. All you need to do is pull the upper cover(s), and check the timing marks on the accessory belt drive pulley, and cam gear(s) then you can eliminate that as an option

What all tests have you done? Because spraying in quick start doesn't really sound like a good idea, nor something that should ever be required

Make sure the entire intake system is back together! If air isn’t passin through that sensor the car won’t start. I replaced the valves on mine awhile back and thought I’d give her a start before doingthenlast little bit and then got frustrated when it wouldn’t start and sat there for another 3 weeks tryin to figure it out when it was simply the face that I didn’t finish putting the intake system together. Hopefully it’s something stupid like that for u as well
