Many possible causes. Spark plugs, HT wires, Distributor cap or rotor, Stale fuel, Ignition coil or a fuel clog somewhere.

fuel and fire, charge the battery, turn on ignition and listen for the fuel pump to pressurize the fuel lines. If you ran out of gas you may have fried the fuel pump.

Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?
Someone will need to check for spark on all cylinders and fuel pressure.
You might try spraying carb cleaner or starting fluid into the throttle body to boost fuel supply and see if it helps. If it does that would tell you its a fuel problem.

1991 eagle talon will crank, but won't start up. 2 days ago I was driving home from work when i turned around in a parking lot and went to my parents house. about a half an hour there i needed to move...

That sounds like the fuel pump may have lost it's prime. Does it have fuel injection, or a carburetor on the engine? How much gas was in the tank while it was parked on an incline? Have you tried any starting fluid sprayed into the air intake hose, toward the engine? Warning! Don't use much starting fluid! Perhaps a one or two second burst, and have someone crank it immediately after you have stepped back at least 6 feet from the engine. If it fires, then it is definitely a fuel delivery problem! But it won't run long like that unless the fuel pump starts working again ... which is most likely when the engine is cold!

Hi Shansa, I would suggest you take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan. That will determine and pin point the problem. I would think that if the vehicle is fitted with the constant injection type of system, the problem could be flooding. If that is the case it will be better for a new fuel distributor to be fitted. If someone has tried to adjust the unit, it needs to be taken to a technician to reset the delivery valve setting, if not, its probably showing signs of wear. The symptoms you describe are common to flooding and what would happen if the fuel is wetting the plugs and stopping ignition. The time elapse you relate would give enough time for the fuel to evaporate and then allow the engine to start. Regards Johngee10

Not starting up just turning over

I don't have a solution, but I have the same problem. My 2000 jaguar set for about 2 weeks and when I tried to start it, the engine turns over but won't fire or start.
