Turn key to start-engine turns and i have spark wont start

I would check fuel pressure so you can rule out pump. I had a bad pump right out of the box before. Also you may want to change fuel filter so you can rule out plugged filter. You have spark, sure seems like still no fuel.

Turns over wont start. Changed fuel filter has

If youve ran through everything as in the spark if its getting fuel, if it has compression remove number one place a finger over the hole and have someone turn it over if it tries to push your finger out then it has compression be careful dont stick you finger in if you dont have to it can push it out with lots of forced air. If it is none of those it might also be the timing a slight bump to the distributer and knock off the timing on some models(keep plug in boot for number one cylinder place plug against metal on engine have someone turn it over if thats sparking timing might be ok. So if you have fuel getting to it, spark and compession it might also be this little bugger known as an inertia switch usually found on the right passenger side it depends on the vehicle as to where exactly and if it is equipt with one. press the little button to reset the ball bearing to reestablish contact

Disconnect the fuel lines at the fuel rail, turn on the key and observe if the fuel pump is sending fuel thru. If it is, then the problem is probably electrical. Remove a spark plug wire from the spark plug and hold it close to the engine block while someone cranks the engine. If you observe the spark jumping to the engine block, the problem is probably fuel related. Just begin isolating the problems eliminating each as you test.

My 94 jeep cherokee started ran for a minute or 2 and stopped

i would suggest checking to see if you are getting fuel by disconnecting the fuel line at the fuel rail and turn key if no fuel then its either fuel pump or fuel filter. if you get fuel then it would be the spark

Turns over but wont start

If you don't hear it then it is probably not working.  One way you can check is to take a fuel line apart and see if fuel comes out when you turn the key.  The best place to do that is at the fuel filter.  Just make sure you have a small cup to catch the fuel if it comes out.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Check the fuel pump when you turn the key forward but dont crank it and see if you hear the fuel pump engaging. I hope this helps.

Car wont start

If you are getting spark to the plugs, (and assuming nothing has happened to screw up the timing of the spark), the only thing that would cause the car not to start is that you are not getting fuel into the cylinders. You can check this by squirting some ether into the air intake of the engine. You can get some start spray at an auto parts store.
