MY CAR WILL CRANK BUT WILL NOT START,THE TANK IS FULL, I WAIT ONE DAY THEN THE NEXT DAY IT WILL START. I DROVE IT FOR A WEEK WITH NO PROBLEMS, THEN THE SAME THING HAPPEN AGAIN. I HAD THE FUEL PUMP REPLACE ABOUT 7 MONTH AGO. NEED HELP THANKS
Perhaps when the fuel pump was replaced, the filter was not replaced, or the dirt in the tank was not cleaned out. Sometimes these problems are a result of the filter getting clogged up and fuel is not able to reach the fuel rail. The car sits for a while, the sediment falls from the filter, it then starts and runs for a time, all the while, little by little, the sediment recollects and starves the fuel rail again.

The incline is apparently enough to have the feed from your tank exposed to air and not gas. If you can let the vehicle roll back and turn the wheel so your facing in the opposite direction before you attempt to start it again. This will allow the fuel to feed out of the tank like it is supposed to and should start fairly easily. Since the line is empty now, it make take a few seconds more than usual to prime with fuel and crank. Parking on inclines will get you if they're steep and your tank isn't full. Just remember this and next go round if you have to do this again, make sure your vehicle is parked in the opposite direction and the feed tube out of the tank will still be covered with gas.
could be anything from a crank sensor to a ignition module ,please call a local mechanic to have a look because its very difficult to diagnose this sort of fault without having my greasy hands under the bonnet ,
