03 mitsubishi spyder gts wont start. Sign In

The car was running fine a week ago but was parked for about a week. When i went out to start it up it wouldn't!

Starter is turning over, checked for spark and have it. Pulled a fuel line and it is getting fuel. I checked the forum and found stuff to check for what system may have the problem but I 'm not sure on how to check for compression. If I hold the key in start it almost sounds like it wants to go every couple turns but it just wont catch.

You need to do more accurate testing. You need to use a fuel pressure gauge to get an accurate pressure reading, use a noid light to test for injector pulse and if it passes all that, then get a compression test to test the compression.
