might be flooded. you could try a clear flood by keeping the gas pedal to the flood and try to start it. Are the spark plugs wet when you take them out? (sign of not enough spark of flooded condition) You say you have spark but how strong is your spark? when you crank the engine over does it sound like it normally does or does it seem to spin faster than normal?

bad coils are common, spark shoud be blue-white and be able to jump like a half inch or so. (Look like lightning) yellow is not a strong spark

also went and crossed te1 and e1 and got 24 code Intake Air Temperature Sensor signal would this cause the engine to NOT start ?

lets start with the basics. do you get spark out of the coil when you are cranking the engine over? If you do, then check for fuel pressure then for injector pulse. You need to verify each one of those thing before you can go any further.

Ok here it goes After having problems of car not starting , I replaced the fuel pump and filter , replaced plugs and plug wires distributor cap and rotor , checked the OBD and had 1 code (42 I believe or 24 ) air intake temp sensor . Had spark from plugs .

So here was the problem , the oil pump pulley or gear had broken causing the timing belt to slip a couple of teeth and be out of time
from what the dealer says this pulley, gear malfunctions quite often replaced the pulley, gear reset timing belt and car runs great .
Hope this might help someone else with similar problems .... Thanks carriedi for all your input :D

that's great that you have it fixed now. Usually when the timing belt jumps enough to make so a vehicle won't start you can listen to the motor as it is cranking over and it will sound different. Because a normal engine cranking over builds up compression you can hear the starter drag as each cylinder comes up to TDC. When the valve timing moves away from normal so does your compression. So the sound of the starter will become more monotone. instead of RRRrrRRRrrRRRrrRRRrr you just get rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr , worst case senario, the starter will spin the crank and you won't hear the engine build up any compression
