we checked every single fuse...swapped the ASD with another fuse to be sure that wasn't it...nothing. Didn't have a pressure test on it....fuel pump is running, fuel at the rail is good and when sprayed with started fluid we got nothing. Ill have a Chrysler computer here Tues and a pressure tester along with test light. Limited tools at my place and limited knowledge on my end with this stuff....doing my best to run out and check what's being told...some is beyond my grasp, some I can do.....

What is the actual number? Without this, offering advice is pointless.

It is common that a fuel pump can run but not deliver enough pressure to start or run. I am a professional mechanic and I diagnose problems like this systematically. If you don't have a proper diagnostics you will just piss more money away than you need to. If you get the fuel pressure, I will compare it to spec and see where you stand. If good, I will instruct you as to what and how to check the next item that may be causing you problems.

Ruining it out of fuel could make the injectors stick shut

Pull the coil rail off and plug a spark plug into it and lay it on the head to ground. wear rubber gloves if you're going to hold onto it while doing it. The kind you women folk use while cleaning the shitter

Don't pull any plugs obviously. You don't need to make any explosions

If she is spraying in ether and it still won't fire. That points to a timing or ignition problem. Not fuel delivery issue.
