need a mechanics tech help

i know this thread might be in a different area but looking for quick response. if moved i understand. already posted in tech area.

no prior issues with car only leaking clutch master which i fill once a month. changed plugs(copper), wires(taylor),air(k&n) and fuel filter(ford) 1 year ago to date.

car wont start (run)

-----i drove my car into the driveway yesterday friday to remove my bumper and right side skirt to get painted.
-----today saturday i went to put eveything back and went to start car and no start (run).
-----turn key hear buzz from pump
-----turn key starter cranks
-----first engine turnover car burbles like want to start then after, couple more turnover engine just cranking, no more burble.
-----timing belt good, fuel switch pressed
-----sprayed starter fluid down throttle to see if get anything. same results, just cranking.
-----checked spark by removing each wire one at a time from distributor. visually seen getting spark to wires. didnt check to plugs figuring wont be able to see spark.
-----so getting air obviously
-----not seeing any irregular lights on dash
-----dont have meter to check voltage but doubt batt to be issue because cranking seems strong. slows down a little (little) with continuous hold of key. sure might need new batt, but considering problem dont think batt is issue.
-----visually checked eng compt for any loose wires didnot see any.

what could my issue be?

getting toms tune in mail next week, would predator help my in diagnoses.

Yes the pred would help because you would be able to check the fuel psi , The I would pull a plug wire and see with an old plug if it is firing , If you have fire and fuel then check the compression

i guess i will change plug with old if i find one. i think engine is getting fuel because i smell a little in exhaust. faintly thou. and when predator comes i will use that in diagnoses. another advice given was ignition relay or fuse, i will check that.

yeah check your fuel fuse, doesn't sound like it should be happening, but also check your fuel filter for contamination. its been a year, but you should check your fuel filter every 8k.

havent checked relay or fuse yet but dawned on me as i said already checked spark by removing each wire one at a time from coil pack. visually seen getting spark to wires. didnt check to plugs figuring wont be able to see spark. but i guess going to have to pull plug and jump to ground to see if getting spark.
------do coil packs just go or can they work but not put out enuff volts for spark
