Pull one of the plug wires and rest it where a chassis ground is near and then look for spark. If there is none, the coil or 'power pack' may be bad or the pulse pickup in the distributor has failed, If it is the former, you must have an ohmmeter at least and measure at the spark output lead or contact to any other contact you find and it should be between 7,000 and ~12,000 Ohms. On the primary side you need at least one contact and a case ground; this should measure close to nothing; that is, about the same as shorting the meter leads together.
Chekcing the pulse pickup is tougher since they can vary a bunch but shouldn't be less than ~ 1,000 Ohms and in no case infinite (off the highest scale).
Things not likely are sparkplugs and the sparkplug wires; eithr of these would only affect one or two cylinders, not all.
If you smell gasoline, try pushing the accelerator slowly to the floor and keep it there while you crank the engine.  Sometimes, the plugs get wet and will then not fire and allowing maximum air to enter the engine and not pumping the gas pedal, will dry them and allow the engine to start again.

Car won't start 2003 Dodge Stratus sxt coupe cranks but won't start what could b the problem? I tried spraying starting fluid in the air system but it still won't start!


i would check and see if spark pluges are firing. you can take one out and plug into spark plug wire then let the bottom of the plug sit on engine and get someone to try to start while you look at the plug to see if there is any fire. if you have no fire or fuel it would be the crankshaft sencer. it could be the timing belt but the motor would sound different turning over then it used to.

2000 nissan maxima won't fire when trying to start. it turns over but won't fire. it started once and ran but won't start again


sounds like it might be flooded. Try and remove the fuel pump fuse from the fuse block that is just in front of your left knee. While it is out crank the car and see if it wants to start and hold down the gas pedal all the way and then relase it and back and forth and once you get it to run have the fuse ready in your hand and in front of the spot to install it. and then keep the rpm's up with the gas pedal until the smoke clears out behind the car.
