Icon9 Car won't start replaced everything!!!!

I have a 93 si that ran great until the other night when I was driving home getting on the freeway I shifted into 4th and the car just bogged down and the gas light turned on and it died. Well I thought it was gas so while I was waiting for someone to bring me some I tried to start it and it started up but won't rev past 2100 rpm and runs like crap.I thought it was the knock sensor because it kinda sounded like marbles in a coffee can.Well I got it home and started replacing things one at a time and still nothing now I can't even get it to start at all. Timing is dead on,new cap and rotor on a new distributor,new coil,new grounds,new main relay,new knock sensor,I just can't figure it out it has spark it has fuel and timing but it just won't go.Any suggestions?

Re: Car won't start replaced everything!!!!

could be a fuel pump? does it sound like its priming when you turn the key to on (not all the way to start the car)

Re: Car won't start replaced everything!!!!

1.Check all your fuses
2.Can you hear a loud humming noise from your fuel pump?
3.Was it raining or do you have a CAI (cold air intake)
4.Notice any part of your wiring harness that seems to be melted/ in bad shape

Re: Car won't start replaced everything!!!!

Those are all good but the fuel pump primes and pushes out fuel,the grounds and wire harness all look great, and it's all stock with no intake or other mods.Ive used a volt meter and testlight all over and everything has power where it should.Oh and by the way 210 psi across all four cylinders no internal damage.I have had 3 mechanics take a look and the only thing left to check would be the ecu but it has never thrown any codes.

Re: Car won't start replaced everything!!!!
