I agree with George. Check the ignition module inside the left front fender. The heat sink actually provides an electrical connection to the chassis which delivers a ground signal to the ECM.
To make a log story short, corrosion can interfear with this connection and the car will crank but not start.
To test for this problem, connect a jumper wire from the ignition module heat sink to a good ground point on the alternator, or engine, and try starting. If this was the problem, it will start.
