I'm trying to think of other things to look at if the fuel pressure is good. I guess if the cat is clogged bad enough it could prevent the car from starting. Try shaking or kicking the cat & see if it rattles. If it rattles then the cat is bad. Can anyone else think of something to check while he'* there?

After all that, it was a retarded brother. Checked the injectors myself this time and nothing. Turns out the Injector fuse was blown. Thanks for the help guys.

Glad you double checked that & got it going. I took a quick look at some wiring diagrams & couldn't find anything that shares the circuit with the fuel injectors. You'd better carry some spare fuses just in case. If it happens again you might find yourself in a situation where it keeps blowing fuses. If so then you'll have to unplug all the injectors, change the fuse & then reconnect 1 injector, crank it over for a second or two then check the fuse. If the fuse is still good add another injector & retest. If it blows a fuse leave that injector unplugged & run it on 5 cylinders to the nearest auto parts store.

I think it might have been caused by having the wrong fuse in place. I checked the book and it says it requires a 10 amp fuse for the injectors, but the blown fuse was 7.5 amps. I'm not an electrician, but I'm guessing that was the problem. Drove the car all the way home (30 miles) with no trouble after I put in the 10 amp fuse.
