You didn't say if you checked spark.There is a aldl connector under your dash somewhere for checking codes.You'll just have to look around for it.Don't worry about that for now.Check basics.As long as the check engine light is on with key on engine off then ecm fuses are fine.Why are you calling this car metric?? Check for spark before you reply.

Got your e-mail.How are you checking fuel pressure? Spray some starting fluid into throttle body just to be sure it's not fuel related.

Cool

P.s checked the pressure with a thumb nail
it rebuilds each time i turn the key on
strong enough to hit the hood around 12 to 16 pds i would guess

This is port fuel injection right? you said you used your thumb nail so I assume your pushing the schrader valve??The pressure should be up in the 40 psi range with the key on engine off.Running it's a little lower maybe 36 psi. Go buy a gauge.You can get one from auto parts stores for around 40.00.If it would not start on the starting fluid you probably have a ignition problem.pull a wire off and hold it from ground about 1/4-1/2 inch.actually stick a screwdriver in the plug wire so it touches metal terminal and put the screwdriver near ground.look for a nice blue spark.Check that then get back to us.
