Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
06 Scion XB. New battery, new fuel filter, new plugs, MAF/ATI cleaned. Fuel pump works (I can hear it buzz). All electrical gauges and lights work, so I don't think it's a battery/connectivity issue. Can smell gas when I open the airbox, so the fuel pump and injectors are working. Can someone point me in a helpful direction on this? I've been chasing gremlins for three days now, and I'm getting tired of it! Thanks!
Smelling gas like you are is a bad thing, engine must turn over to fire injector. sounds like flooding ( possible ECM/power computer bad ). Before condemning the computer pull all spark plugs, disable ignition coils, then try cranking to see if engine will turn over. Be carful if hydro locked gas will be pushed out the spark plug hole/s

Testimonial: "Hydro-locked? I don't think there's any water in the cylinders, unless you're using that term in a more general way and you're referring to the potential flooded gas as the hydro-locking fluid. I'll give that a try. If it does crank without the plugs/coils, what does that tell me? If it doesn't crank without the plugs/coils, what does that tell me? Sorry for the relatively stupid questions - I can change parts (brakes, sensors, fuel pump/filter, etc), but my diagnostic skills start and end with "it makes a bad sound"."

your pick up coil or parts inside the distributor have failed you may have to check and replace some parts or maybe your whole distributor. sorry.

check for a good spark first, if there is none look at ignition circuits its more likley this part,
it could also be the car alarm the immobiliser shutting of the ignition ""stops it getting nicked?"
try resetting the alarm if you take off pipe to carb and there is fule pumping out!!! fule filter is "ok" for starting up on!!! take care working with fule!
