If this were M.net, I would just tell you how, and a little part of me would die inside.

This is not M.net.

put my front springs and shocks on today, looks nice, tried to fire her up again, cleaned out the spark plugs for now...i turned the key it just wouldn't turn over, like when you try to start a car and it keeps going urrr urrr urrr, ect and wouldn't fire up. Is it because my starter is shot because i have been trying to start it to much or to i have to mess with my cranking PW's it was 5 deg outside today not that cold.

You cranking PWs are the amount of fuel being injected. Has nothing to do with the ability of your car being able to turn over when trying to start it. Sounds like you have a dead battery.

if it was the battery would it not just be a clicking noise? Not keep turning over and not starting?

Alright, i checked if i was getting spark (20 years later lol), and yes i am getting spark from all 4 wires, so my coil packs good. It still wouldn't fire up, battery's fine, getting spark, getting fuel because i can hear the pump when i put the key to on. I still dont know if its my igniter but would that be the reason why its not firing up?

Just because you can hear the pump prime doesn't mean your injectors are firing. Take a screwdriver, place it on one of the injectors, put the other end to your ear, and have a friend crank the car. You should be able to hear the injector clicking as it fires.

Are the plugs soaking wet with fuel, or are they dry?

yes lol i believe so, and i even rewired them the other way again today to see if that was it but im 99.9% sure they are plugged in lol. Why did your car not start because they weren't clipped in all the way?

Miataz, dunno if you have seen this thread but this may help you out:

I remember seeing a video where you though your car was running on 2 cylinders or something a few weeks back. Looks to be of the same issue. Just something to double check.

Checked it out today after finishing installing the DDM gauge/radio panel(get pics after), timing belt is fine, i am getting fuel because i looked at the bottom of the plugs and they were wet, and i sprayed gas inside the throttle body just to make sure and it dint start. Im thinking its either that my timing is so off that it wont start or that im getting spark but not a strong enough spark. Would those be possibilities?
