Check for spark on more than 1 plug wire,fuel pressure with a guage and injector pulse then post your findings.Those cars were bad for modules,coil and coil wires going bad.If you have sprayed starting fluid in the intake and it doesn't at least backfire I have a hard time believing you have spark.

You would need to remove an electrical connector from a fuel injector and place a noid light across the connector and crank the engine.If it blinks you have pulse if not you don't have pulse.I would check for spark and fuel pressure on that car first as it is easier.Remove the coil wire and see if it's corroded also.
