I had similar problem some months ago it turned out to be the pipe under wheel arch (corroded) where cap filler is.
my problem was solved by replacing pipe which is connected to rubber pipe fixed to tank and filler hose from filler cap.
tools neede llong large cross head screwdriver, small socket set ( 12 mm , 13mm , 14mm) 150 mm extension bar. to remove bracket bolts
possibly some new pipe clips as others may be corroded.
you will need to jack up car and remove wheel to gain access.
took me about 1 hr, somebody with competent DIY skills should be able to deal in couple of hrs
check with dealer as there are two different pipes on different models one is longer.
my one was the one with the piggybacked overflow pipe.
small hands are advantage

hi there, try changing out your starter, and see if that works, usually if it wont turn over that is the cause.....if that does not solve it, it could be a eletrical problem...the battery cables might be loose in there conection to the battery or there housing spot......hope this helps...if nothing works you'll need to take it to a shop.... shia

did you ground the spark plug when testing for spark? Try replacing ignition coil or check the resistance on the the plug wires.
