Default 97 SL2 died, wont start

97 SL2. Started up to move, died 20 seconds later, wont start, Cranks just fine.
Pulled plug (#1) lots of gas on plug.
Checked spark on #1, Spark is fine.

Car is auto and has 80K+ miles

Suspect Crank sensor, Map sensor, and ECTS.

Question: Will those sensors listed above not allow the engine to start?

Does the engine have a cold start valve or does the ECTS perform that function?



Thanks all.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Spark rules out the crank sensor. Replace your ECTS. Check the ECTS connector for corrosion.
