I would look around for loose vaccum lines and to find out where the crank sensor is and make sure the drive belt is on right

I ran into this once also, and I remember that I just disconnected the battery for about half an hour.

Try that if you haven't already.

You cant reset it. So it cranks but wont start? V8? 6Cyl? You cant just guess and throw parts on it hoping you fix it. Have it towed to a shop and diagnosed.

Antifreeze leaking onto belts don't know where it is coming from. Is it the water pump or the water outlet? changed the hoses

What you need to do is pressurize the cooling system, then you should be able to see where the leak is coming from.....There is a tool that does this pressure test.

1999 mercury marquis wont start, turns over fine, think its the fuel pump, not sure.

Check the fuel pressure at the injector rail.Or hook it up to OBD II code reader, which should give the average fuel pressure.
Do you hear the fuel pump run for a second or two when you first turn the key to `ON' position? That means your fuel pump reset hasn't tripped(for collision purposes,but sometimes needs reset).
When all else fails, go to Ford and they will hook it up for 50-70 bucks and tell you what is wrong.
If you can give more details, post back and let us know. don-ohio (:^)

Drove truck to school everything great, i leave school and it dies and try to get it going and it acts like its got water in my gas or something .it starts then it wont drive i took of fuel filter and...

Sounds like the fuel pump has gone out. Test fuel pressure to see. Think it needs about 45 to run right.

Most people take the bed off to replace pump. Don't but an Airtex.. Best to buy GM OEM. I know from having to do several Airtex's twice.

2003 chevy suburban z71 shows car with padlock just changed fuel pump wont start

If you disconnected the battery to change the fuel pump and did not disable the anti-theft feature first, you now know why it wont start. Check the owners manual if you have it, or contact a GM dealer to get the system reset.

316 m reg, ran out fo fuel put some petrol in and now it will not start don't think the fuel pump is working is there a reset for the pump

Un firtunetly pumps with some age on them tend to lock up when ran dry. try hitting the bottom of the gas tank about in the center or where you think the pump may be. The vibration usually knocks them loose and they start pumping again. You might have to smack the tank 2 or 3 times. You will still need to replace the pump because they can continue to lock everytime you shut the car off. And eventually you wont be able to smack the tank to get it going.
