Question about Mitsubishi L200
Was working fine then went to start up engine but just turns over without fireing up help!!!!
Check and make sure you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail, Then make sure you have spark at the plugs. If you have both spark at the plugs and fuel pressure at the fuel rail I would look at the pick-up in the distributor.

if you have a pd engine and you say that it miss fires i would change the wire loom to the injectors if it persists the air flow meter is on the blink, has you car ever gone into a limp mode status were you couldn't rev then check your turbo ,this may sound strange but just had a 150bhp tdi which was remapped with a very simular problem

SOURCE: Engine won't start
The fact the engine rotates indicates a good battery, that's eliminated from the search.
The problem is of Main/Auxiliary Power Supply. Trace the Main Battery cacle from the Starter, if it has more than 1 Power cable attached, looking for a connector break running back to the Power Box. If the Starter has only 1 supply cable, then look for a loose joint on that Battery to Power Box Connector Block, or broken 'Spade' connector. If again all appears ok, by using the "Idiot" diagram, on the Power Box and Fuse Box, pull each Maxi and Service Fuse and Relay in turn, looking for a Failure. Should this not detect the fault come back to me again.

First of all, never... and i mean NEVER, use starting fluid on a gas engine. You will blow intake gaskets, possibly head gaskets, and even warp the valves, and worse yet, blow your head off. Starting fluid is meant for diesel engines, and nothing else.
The first thing you have to do is listen when you first turn on the key, to hear if the fuel pump is running in the gas tank. If you can't hear it, check fuses and wiring. Make sure there is power to the pump by using a test light. If there is power, and it doesn't work, replace the pump.
Check for spark using a timing light. If there is no spark, check the coil, fuses, distributor, wiring, etc. Aim your timing light at the crank mark, if you have spark, and make sure the mark is staying in one place. If it is jumping around, your timing chain has likely jumped, and will need to be replaced.
If there is an engine light on, you are best off to borrow a scanner if you don't have one, and see what it says. Hit and miss can end up costing much more than the price of a scanner. Good luck.
