Question about 1992 Mitsubishi Pajero
Petrol was low filled it up car started okay then next morning would not start was water in fuel but now okay but still won't fire.
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.

Starter sounds like a good place to start.
Make sure battery is in good condition and fully charged, as wellas the battery cables and wiring to the starter(no corrision,0r looseness).

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
