Default Re: 1998 saturn won't start

I pulled the two wires off of the coil and had my son crank the car over. Had plenty of spark between the two terminals. I went ahead and replaced the CPS and the ECTS anyway. The coolant sensor was cracked.
We then pulled all the plugs. The were wet with fuel. They all have good spark while cranking the engine over. Put the plugs back in, then cleaned the coil towers. They looked good but I cleaned them anyway.
The car still won't start. It will hit just a little about every 2 seconds but won't start. The battery is kind of dragging, don't know if that would affect it or not. I put some booster cables on it and cranked it but had the same results even thou it did crank faster.
Any other ideas ?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
