Where did you check for spark? Unplug the coil wire from the distributer cap and check there by placing the end of the wire near something like a ground wire or head bolt while cranking the engine. Don't hold it in your hand. If you have spark comming from the coil wire but not from the cylinder wires then I agree with stevevpb. Very possibly the cap and rotor. A word of advice. If you decide to replace the cap and rotor and/or possibly the iginition wire set as well, use only OEM parts. Yes they are more expensive but many aftermarket ignition parts wind up costing you a lot more in the long run. I've learned that the hard way. An OEM cap will probably run you about 50 bucks; rotor, 20 bucks; wire set, 150 bucks. What a rip but hey, it is what it is.

Signs of a Bad Fuel Pressure Regulator
the vehicle will not start, if a bad regulator. Usually, this is a problem that is encountered in the morning when you start your vehicle. Many a times, the engine starts, but stalls shortly after starting. check the fuse and relay for pump. also remove line to fuel pressure regulator and if fuel in line, replace fuel pressure regulator. check for spark and also the timing belt. its one sign of not starting. if car runs fine on spray, I would not say its the timing belt or chain.

Change the fuel pump and still won't start on a 2002 chevy avalanche

Check for spark to the spark plugs, while cranking the engine. If no spark, you could have a bad ignition module, or a bad crankshaft position sensor. The crank sensor sends a signal to the computer, to start the fuel pump and signals the ignition module to start firing the spark plugs. It also drives the tachometer through the computer (PCM) Powertrain control module. The ignition module can be removed and taken to a parts store to have it tested. The crank position sensor is not as easy to test. Easier to just replace it. Good Luck. But wait, I have seen people replace the fuel pump, checked the fuel pump harness for power, and all was good. However, if the fuel pump does not have a GROUND, it will still not operate. Might want to check that. Have fun.

I've got a 2005 chrysler 300 and it won't start I have changed fuel pump, camshaft and the crankshaft sensor coils and spark plugs and i still wont start what could be causing it not to start?

Try to determine if it is fuel or ignition related.
Turn key to on, do you hear the fuel pump turn on for a couple of seconds? It should come on briefly to pressurize the lines and fuel rail on the engine. Do you have fuel at the engine under pressure? Easiest and preferred way is to check fuel pressure with a pressure gauge at the test port on the fuel rail. With key on, pressure on mpfi systems should be 40-50 psi.
If there is gas in the fuel rail, test ignition by checking for spark on the end of a plug wire, with the engine cranking over. If you have a blue snapping spark, then ignition is probably good-may want to check more than one plug wire. Hold the metal terminal end of plug wire 1/4 inch from a ground on the engine, the engine block or a bolt or metal bracket. Verify a blue snapping spark, repeatedly, as the engine cranks. An orange spark, intermittent spark, or no spark points to an ignition problem. One thing you haven't changed is the ignition control module. This module, when signaled by the pcm, is what cuts the primary current to the coils for spark to be generated.

If you have both gas and spark, check the fuel injector circuit. Post back if you need help with that. There should be an injector fuse that needs checked. Also a fuse for the fuel pump, if no pump action, besides the fuel pump relay.

Car is cranking fine but will not start

the easy way to find out the problem is get some starting fluid and take the mass airflow sensor out and spray some in there and it will got to your throttle body or you could just spray in the body and if it starts and then dies you know that you have lost fuel but if it doesnt start then you lost spark if your car has a fuel rail and the car starts and then stops you can check to see if you have fuel pressure on the fuel rail there is a big bolt on the rail crack open a hair and have someone turn the over to energize the pump not on but over if fuel sprays out then you have pressure but if it still doesnt start then change your fuel filter chances are that its clogged but if its spark change your spark plugs and wires and if that doesnt do it then change the distributor or if you have coil on coil then change all the spark plug coils

This sounds like you may have fuel at the rails, but do you know if the injectors are opening? You can assumed that the cam position sensors are working to fire the plugs and should work the injectors. There is a light test unit which may be borrowed to insert in the injector harness to determine if each connector is firing.

The throttle position sensor may be bad. You can check the connector end of this part with an ohmmeter to see if you have resistence when the throttle is moved.

Thats all I have for now.

Why won't my 1997 Saturn SL start?

you have spark at the plugs ..thats something

spray stay you mug
into the throttle body see if the motor will cough

tank needs draining and have fresh fuel
fuel pump has a filter and fuel relay

crack the fuel line connection to the rail to see if there is fuel reaching the rail and correct pressure

if sitting 6 years.. not being run regularly
do a compression test
lifters may be stuck
rings may have lost tension

1997 mazda 626 won't start.

Are the plugs wet with fuel?
Check for spark. No spark? it may be the ignition module.

Plugs dry and spark present? No fuel?Spray a little starting fluid and see if it will run on that.
Then check pump fuses and for fuel pump noise.
