Does it run well once it's roll-started? Anyway, my first guess is a fuel delivery issue.

Thats got to be a fuel pump problem, as the fuel pump even though electric does not pump until the engine is turning even if you sit with the ignition on it does'nt pump until you turn thr engine, so by towing the engine its turning mega time and the petrol is being pumped through.

Thanks guy,s but there is a strong smell of fuel when you try to start the car as if it is flooding can it then still be the fuel pump?

Ok we tested the fuel pressure and it,s ok...We took out on plug wire and tested it there is no spark, so maybe you can help me to look where may the problem be as crank sensor seems ok?thanks

The ignition coil(s) and the distributor (if it has one) and the plug wiring may all need a look.
