    Failure to start

    '94 Seville. Bought this car at auction, so no history is known. Would take over a minute of cranking to get it to fire when cold. Afterward, it would fire almost instantly.
    Now it won't start. Period. It coughs and sputters out the exhaust and throttle body, like the timing's way off. Ether doesn't help. I suspect crank sensors. Fuel pressure is around 30#, engine off. Any other suggestions?

    30 psi is rather low fuel pressure. It should be up around 45 as I recall. Any Codes?
