There are a lot of potential causes for your problem. The pattern is similar to a fuel pump failure I had in a 1992 Buick, but before embarking on a fuel pump replacement, there are a few tests you can do.

Check fuel pump operation: Open the fuel filler cap and listen to it while an assistant turns the key to the "On" position. If the fuel pump is working you should hear it running clearly by listening to the top of the fuel filler tube. The reason you need an assistant to turn on the key is that if it's working correctly, your fuel pump will only run for a few seconds.

Check ignition system (only applicable to gasoline engine): Remove one spark plug (doesn't matter which) and connect the plug wire to it. Place the plug in a secure location on the engine touching something metal and away from explosive vapors (that can come from the battery or blow out the now open spark-plug hole) Stand back where you can see the plug clearly and ask your assistant to crank the engine (turn the key to "start") If the ignition system is working properly you should see sparks jump between the contacts on the spark plug. This test is best performed in low light so the sparks are more easily seen.

SOURCE: 04 mitsubishi galant won't start..started off

Sounds like your Timing Chain or Belt Are Damaged and Caused your Ignition Timing to Jump out of Time, Also check your Distributor Cap and rotor NOTE: if you have a Distributor ,Some are Distributorless. Pull your Spark Plugs out BEFORE you Do Locate #1 Plug its in Front of your Engine.And Trace the Wire to the Distributor Cap. If you have a 4 Cylinder #1 is in the First Plug in front of vehicle, if its a V-6 #1 Plug is on Left side first plug in Front. Depending on which engine you have will determine if your wires go into the Distributor cap Clockwise or Counter Clockwise. So BEST to Simply Mark them to get them back in same order.You'll need to Get the Enging to crank over and have a Buddy Put a Compression Gauge in #1 Cylinder and Bring it up to TDC (Top Dead Center) thats when the piston is up and gets the Gauge to Move up then your on the Compression Stroke, Then check distributor rotor to see if its pointed to where your #1 Spark Plug wire came off or at least close to it.Just hit the Ignition Switch off and on Until you have it showing compression on Gauge. JUST ON and OFF that Fast. If the Rotor is pointing To a different Spark Plug Wire in the Cap, Sounds like timing Jumped. Hope this will help you solve your problem or at least find it. If you don't have or not sure on How to do this i recommend you have a Qualified Mechanic Shop run the Tests. Thanks and Good Luck

1997 Nissan Sentra GXE: The engine is turning over okay, but won't start

Check for spark, check for fuel delivery, check air filter.
A petrol engine always requires air, fuel and spark. The issue will be with one of these, so diagnose which system is faulty, and then report if you can't readily repair the faulty system.

1988 toyota camry 2.0 turns over but won't start. Car has been driving like a champ and one morning wouldn't start. Turns over fine but won't fire. Tested for spark by removing spark plugs...

Fuel pressure at idle is normally 30-35psi. Start by taking the gas cap off, and putting it back on. That will De-pressurize the fuel system. Also, make sure you have gas in the car. I have seen gauges on these cars read wrong. I hope this helps.

My Spark 2004 800cc only start when engine is hot in the morning or at night when the engine is cold the car don't start but if the car start after several attemps you can smell petrol as if the car...

check the coolant temp. sensor for the Engine ECU as it might be faulty and gives wrong information about the engine temp. so if it feel the car is cold it'll ask the Engine ECU to give command to the fuel injectors to flow more fuel into the firing chamber and then it'll be fluded and won't start easily..
