99 Escort ZX2 has spark but no start
I am considering buying this car, but at the moment it wont start.it has about 125k miles on it. 5 speed. It's getting spark, and the guy said when he changed the injectors there was fuel coming out of the lines (so there is pressure).. but it just wont start, he said even with starting fluid it wont start.. could it be the cam or crank sensor? or would it be out of time? also, when I pulled the 1st spark plug (passenger side, im assuming its #1) there was motor oil on the outside of the boot is this just the valve cover gasket?. He said he drove it 300 miles home parked it and then it wouldnt start. I got the guy down to $400, do you think it is worth it? It has some rust on the bottom of the doors and under the doors, but the interior is spotless and the rest of the body looks clean.
