Before you go for anything, try the following: 1) check if there is any spark goes from distributor or coil to leads .
2) check if your car fitted with injection system,if the injectors are spraying correct or are not. If not means that too much fuel in the combustion chamber and kill the spark.
3)remove the spark plugs - after you start for couple of times - if are dry or wet. if are wet probably you have problem with the injector or spark lead,coil or distributor.
4) blocked catalytic converter.
5) ECU ( Electronic Control Unit.) faulty.

Sounds like the timing belt broke. Unfortunately this vehicle was not equiped with no contact valves so if that is the case you will need to have the engine and Head rebuilt. If the crank position sensor can't sense the position of the crank it should shutdown the electrical to keep you from damaging your engine.

Crank sensor


let vechicle sit for a while could be flooded fuel injectors leaking.when fuel injectors become dirty clogged they will leak when you turn off the engine.see if engine restart if its sits while.if car still dont crank check for spark.no spark could be faulty ignition module or crankshaft position sensor and camshaft sensor.have vechicle code scan first before buying new parts.meant to say bad engine coolant temperature sensor will cause no start hot engine and clogged air filter.

Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

My 1989 Camry had the belts changed and had a valve cover gasket and when I went to Kmart it wouldn't start so my mechanic had it tow back to the shop he told me that my fuel pump needed to be replace...


Hello, obviously the fuel pump is not the problem and this mechanic sounds like he has no clue what is going on, he needs to recheck on the work he did because it sounds like something happened to cause this problem while he was working on it. Maybe some wires were pinched at the valve cover area or the wires for the crankshaft sensor were damaged.

1996 Saturn won't start- engine turns over


OK I don't know if this is your problem but my 92 sl2 is kinda the same way. my sl2s ECTS went out and it dose the same this is what it looks like4c01145.jpg you will have to remove the air duct to get to it and this is were it's located keep in mind there are two of them you want to unplug the one with two wires it is lower on the block. but do not remove it.

after unpluging it try starting your car if it starts them you will have to get a new ECTS Coolant Temp Sensor. btw don't drive around with it unpluged just becouse it runs dosen't mean you should use it like that.
