ok here goes ill try to be as detailed as possible.
i have a 1990 toyota corolla gts. It has the 4age fuel injeted motor. The car sat for 4 yrs before i bought it.
when i bought it the engine wouldnt crank nothing would work. after finding out there was no spark i put in an msd ignition and coil. now i have hot spark.

Next i checked the Air flow meter, which turned out to be no good either. I have replaced this and it is working, even now that i had air and spark still the car would not run. next i checked the fuel pressure, it wasnt great so i replaced the fuel lines, pump, filter fuel pressure regulator, cold start injector, all fuel injectors and fuel rail.

Next just to be on the safe side i replaced all vacuum lines. with that being said i go to start the car she cranks and wont turn over. the weird part is if i spray starting fluid i can get the car running and if i continue spraying it continues running, but inside the car my battery light, ck engine light pretty much everything that goes on when the car is in the on position but isnt running. also the tach isnt showing any movement.

its like the car wants to run but the pictures not comin across to the inside of the car. ive been over almost everything in this car mechanically and i think ive come to the point where throwing new parts and guessing wont help. I need a fresh perspective someone PLEASE Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
if there is anything else n e one needs to know to help me please ask im so desperate rite now!

sounds like a dead ECU or maybe faulty wiring to the ECU making it malfunction; check into that if you can, I've heard the AE86 guys complain about ECUs malfunctioning so you never know, it could happen on the AE92s.
