Exclamation 89 325i WON'T START HELP PLEASE!!!!

My bmw does not start. it has had problems with the starter in the past but this problem is totally new. it will turn over and seem to just about crank, sputter a few seconds then nothing. each time it sounds like it's about to crank but it won't. I just replaced the ignition coil and the crank sensor, but it did not help. Does anybody know whats going on.

Do you have a spark at all?
Plenty of fuel in the tank?

The fuel pump is most likely in the tank under the back seat.

make sure you dont have any holes in your intake and check to see if the mass airflow is dirty. if you clean it use mas cleaner not a qtip or somthing. you can take the the fuel hose off and to check to see if your fuel pump is working
