Is the cel on? Try the coolant temp sensor. Could also be the MAF sensor. If you hold the gas pedal to the floor when you're trying to start it and it starts it's probably the MAF.

If this is the case then the wiring is at fault somewhere. Check the pressure sensor connector for proper power and ground. OBDI codes should not be present unless the sensor is damaged or not getting proper power and ground.

As for the no spark issue, test for proper power and ground at various ignition components such as the ignition relay, iginter, coil pack and see if you can come up with anything.

Lots of ground points. Sometimes the coolant temp sensor won't throw a code but is bad. What is code 45?
