Wow no year , impossible to help really , save generics.
what engine, name it, what country, some countries have other engines and other EFI controls.?
is spark good to ALL cylinders ,not just one?
if yes, are spark plugs relics or fresh, and are they dry or soaking wet (tips) with fuel>?
getting fuel means zero if where is not said, spark tips?
it only takes 3 things. to start. most skip compression , id never do.
but yes, a bad engine WILL not start.
150PSI on all cylinder W.O.T , not 80, if
good spark on all cyl. and timed to spec, "timing light time)
last is fuel ,never 1st or second.
last , is sparks are wet its flooding, (lots of tests ask)
last if spark tips are dry , then introduce test fuel
run of 3 second and stall now, (ask for how to preceed.)
all this is called BASICS. we can peel the onion as deep as you want
ask.

2001 Jimmy had fuel pump problems. Replaced fuel pump with after market and fired right up. Week later I stop run into house, then back out completely dead at the key. Replace starter, fires right


I'm a little lost here, but if it will start on starting fluid, the ignition system is working.
Most V-6 GM trucks take at least 65psi of fuel pressure to start. Most aftermarket pumps don't do the job.
I would check the fuel pressure with a gauge next.

I have spark fuel but no fire without starting fluid


Backfiring and hard starting is almost always the result of bad engine timing. You don't say what model it is, but various causes are

- timing belt stretched and jumped a tooth (can't readily be seen)
- distributor drive gear replaced one tooth out (easy to do)
- spark plug wire misplaced on plugs

Take it easy with that starting fluid, you don't want blowback in your face

Turns over and won't start, replaced fuel filter and just turns over and almost fires


Almost fires? Do you mean it does fire some, that you know the plugs are getting spark? If so, then you probably need to have your fuel pressure tested to see if pump is working properly. Can you hear the pump buzz on briefly when you turn key to on? It should come on for a couple of seconds to pressurize the lines. If you don't hear it, then your pump may be bad, or something not turning pump on. Good luck.

Does a toyota hilux surf 1995 diesel have spark plugs and points as in the days of yore??


Diesel engines don't have spark plugs. They use compression and heat to fire the diesel. Most diesel engines have glow plugs which are designed to preheat the combustion chamber to help burn the diesel fuel when you start it up. Hope this helps.

I have a Mercedes 2003 C230. Checked my Fuel line, Fire to Ignition, and Change Camshaft Position Sensors. Car Cranks but still does not start. What else should I look at?


Turn the key and listen for a hum (keep doors closed but a window down and radio off). Don't turn the key all the way to try to crank it, just the turn to get all the lights in the dash on. If you hear a slight hum or buzz that last a second or two that is your fuel pump. If you don't hear it, check your fuse for the fuel pump, if that is not blown, your fuel pump may have gone out.

It turns over but will not start people have looked at it have thought altenator, or battery, or fuel pump...just don;t know


not alternator or battery, maybe fuel pump. You will need to troubleshoot--are you willing?

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.
