Default 96 Cirrus v6 No start, has spark & fuel

1996 cirrus lxi v6 160k. while driving the car began to die gradually but quickly. giving it gas didnt make it run harder, and when off the gas it just died down slowly until it was off. I have spark ( tested a plug wire) and fuel pump primes and theres fuel all the way up to the rail. crankshaft and camshaft sensors were replaced by pepboys last year. The cars cranks and cranks but wont run. starting fluid doesnt work, and i can see the lifters operate when i look through the oil cap, so i believe the timing belt is still working. had a mechanic double check, only extra information found is that the injector didnt have a ground. im thinking maybe the injectors died, and the slow death was the engine burning the last bit of fuel that was already pumped?

1 out of a million chance all 6 injectors die at the same time.
How did u check for spark? Why i ask because if U have spark and u sprayed starting fluid into the intake well it would at least make a fire of some sort.

i had my father and then a mechanic put a screw driver in the plug boot and held it to the chassis. both said that there was spark. and the mechanic checked the injector, but i dont believe he used a noid light. so maybe he got a false reading. today i replaced the crank sensor again, and still no crank.

the cam sensor was not replaced or u would have put in a new distributor they are built into each other not serviced separate. U get a spark tester which has a light one it and a good spark will be a bright light
