Exclamation 1988 Escort Turns Over, But Won't Start

This morning, I went out to my car to go to school~ My car usually starts ALL of the time, and the battery is perfectly fine, because it turns over and at a speedy rate, but won't start! If I hold the key, it will turn over for as long as I hold it or until the battery dies~ What can I do to get it to finally start? It is also raining out~

yes it will start if u use starter fluid. The reason it wont start is because something's wrong with your fuel pump.. i know because im having that same problem.

if it doesn't start with fluid it's probably the TFI module in the distributor
