CAR WAS HAVING TROUBLE STARTING FROM TIME TO TIME. WOULD FINIAL START UP AFTER FLOODING GAS PEDDLE. WOULD ALSO RANDOMLY INCREASE ENGINE SPEED. THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE A SENSOR SO I LOOKED AT AND TOOK OFF THE CAMSHAFT SENSOR. AFTER PUTTING IT BACK THE CAR STARTED UP, BUT I FEW MINUTES LATTER THE CAR TURN OVER AND WOULDN'T START AND THEN NOTHING. THE LIGHT WHEN ON BUT NOTHING WOULD TURN OVER NOT A SOUND. CAN ANY ONE HELP.
May have killed the battery causing the 'nothing would turn over...'.
if started with gas pedal, then cam sensor is not problem. things that prevent a start on that year, and fuel related is coolant temp sensor, map sensor, tps, possible egr. randomly increase engine speed is pointing to egr. Just some advice, but no means should you buy parts based on this advice.

Fuel injected engines don't need to be pumped before starting, if you do flooding can occur. Make a conscious effort NOT to touch the pedal until after you turn the key to the start position and the engine actually starts.
try cleaning the throttle body out first...check engine light on?..possible coolant temp sensor...some problems have multiple causes and are hard to diagnose without actually seeing the vehicle...if you have to hold gas peddle to floor it usually means car is flooded (too much fuel) ...check fuel pressure to see if it bleeds off when not running...could be an indication of leaky injectors or fuel pressure regulator
I had the same problem with mine about two years ago. The problem drove me nuts for six months. The solution was replacing the purge valve on the intake of the engine. With the purge Valve hung open when refueling raw gas vaper is washed into the engine causing the engine to become flooded after fueling. Hope this helps and good luck.
you need to check see if it is getting fuel sounds like a clogged fuel filter and when you pump the fuel peddle you are puttting it clear flood mood which may also be leaking fuel injectors and flooding the cylinders with fuel but most likely is a clogged fuel filter try spraying starter fluid in throttle body and if starts its clogged fuel filter
was it very cold if so the engine could flooded .The gas will wash the oil of the cylinder walls if flooded. try holding gas peddle to the floor wile trying to start.this cuts the fuel of to the engine.or your timing chain stretches hope this helps
try this, if the car wont start push the pedal all the way to the floor and hold it ther while you crank. It sounds like you are flooding the car some how. Pushing the pedal to the floor puts the car into clear flood mode and it shuts off the fuel flow. try and see just a suggestion
