Sounds like you've done the basics, so lets try some more advanced tests.
Remove one spark plug, and reconnect the wire to it. Lay the park plug on the engine, in such a way that you can see the gap, and so that the threads touch metal. Take a step back from the engine and have someone turn the key to try and start it. Watch the little gap for a spark. This is not always easy to see in the day light, but the spark should be visible. If you do not see a spark, just to be sure, try another spark plug. If you still don't see a spark, move on. If you do have spark, get yourself a can of starting fluid, and spray a blast in each cylinder. To do this, you will have to remove the spark plug, spray a little, then replace each spark plug. Do it one at a time so that you don't accidentally get them out of order. No try and start the car. If you have spark, and you sprayed starting fluid, it should fire up, or at least kick over on its own a few times. It won't stay running however. This just proves that it is not getting fuel. Since you hear the fuel pump running, you should focus on checking the wiring to the fuel injectors. After inspecting that, ensure you do have fuel pressure. On the fuel rail (follow the fuel injectors backwards) you will see a schrader valve. It will look like the valve stem on your tire where you fill it with air. It may have a cap on it like you have on the tire valve. With a cold engine (to prevent fire), turn the key on so you hear the fuel pump. Place a rag over this valve and push it in. This will release a spray of fuel, but that should be contained by the rag. You will dump fuel on the ground, but this can't be helped. The fuel on the engine will evaporate quickly enough. Keep pushing the valve down to make sure it maintains pressure. If you have fuel pressure and spark, but no ignition, then you've pretty much moved out of the easy to test realm of problems, and the paths to go are to numerous.

If you did not have spark in the first place, then work your way backwards. You can buy new spark plugs to be sure, but not spark on multiple cylinders usually means the coil pack is bad. If you have the 2.0, or 2.4, then you have a single coil pack. It's right on top of the engine and you can follow the short spark plug wires to it. Make sure the wiring harness is connected solidly. It's cheap, and not to hard to replace. It just takes patients to get the bolts out. On the other hand, if you have the 2.5 engine with the V6, then you have a distributor that has likely gone bad. It's actually really hard to get to. You can follow the spark plug wires to it, and at least pop off the cap. Inspect the cap and the roter underneath. Do not remove and wires from the cap until you've labeled them and made yourself a diagram to reattach them. The cap and rotor are cheap enough that you can try and replace them to see if that's the source of your no-ignition problem. However, if you replace them and still have no spark, then you distributor is bad. It's not easy to replace, and requires that you be able to adjust the timing on the car afterward. If it's your problem, it's best left to a mechanic.

Hope this helps.

1996 Isuzu Rodeo won't crank is getting fire to the coil but not from the coil sometimes. It will run and then die

If it wont crank. Check your battery make sure it has voltage to start vehicle and check also when cranking and while running. Inspect spark plugs and coil wires for any exposed wires. Makes sure spark plug gaps are within spec. If everything is ok check fuel pressure with pressure gauge could be filter or pump and or regulator if fuel pressure fails. But most likely be your distributor

My 2003 toyota echo crank but, wont start

There are other problems if you could get it to autozone some how there are error codes that could be read from the ECU Are you getting fuel to the fuel rail? You could try some gas on the air filter and see if it would fire. That would confirm a fuel system problem.

Turns over but wont start

Start by checking all the fuses for fuel pumps, ignition, etc... CHECK ALL FUSES. Next you can check the spark by removing one spark plug and looking to see if there is any sign of gas/ wetness on it... Meaning if you're getting fuel or not to fire the engine. Reconnect the spark plug wire and set it on a metal surface, preferably the motor block or exhaust manifold. Have one person crank the motor over and the other person check to see if the spark plug is firing (sparking). Or to make QUICK diagnosis grab some "starting fluid" and spray into the intake for a second or two, then crank it over, if it sputters or starts then it's a fuel problem, if it does absolutely nothing then It's an ignition problem.

93 talon tsi getting fuel and spark car cranks but wont start

I would try making sure spark plug wires are put on in the correct firing order. This is a common mistake in tune ups. Most intake manifolds have the firinging order cast in. Plug gaps correct? I cant come too far away.

2003 Nissan Altima won't start?

A car needs 3 things to start. Air, fuel, and spark. Check that it can get air by removing the air cleaner and inspecting it. Leave the air cleaner off for now. Try a squirt of starting fluid into the carburetor (not a lot mind you, just a quick squirt). Be prepared to quench a flame if the engine backfires through the carburetor (have a wet towel handy). Crank the engine. If it fires, you have spark. If it does not fire, you have ignition problems. If it fires and stalls out quickly, you have fuel problems.
For fuel problems: Be sure you have gas! (I know it is obvious, but check the tank!). If the car has not been used for awhile, the gas may have gummed up the carburetor. While it is possible for the weekend mechanic to take a carburetor apart and clean it, it is probably best left to a professional mechanic. Verify that you are getting gas to the carburetor by detaching the rubber gasoline hose at the carburetor. Most cars today have electric fuel pumps, so turning on the ignition should result in a stream of fuel from the gasoline hose. If not, crank the engine and see if a mechanical fuel pump moves the gas. If you get no gas, find out why or your car will never start. If you get gas, the carb is probably gummed up. It is best to conduct this last test into a mason jar to catch the gas, and it is best to postpone the cigarette break until after the test is complete.
If you suspect the ignition, pull a spark plug. It should look clean and whitish to light coffee color. If it is filled with carbon and oil, you have other engine problems. You can look for an ignition spark by laying the plug case against the engine while it is attached to the distributor wire. Crank the engine and you should see a spark jump the gap at the spark plug tip. This spark is often small and hard to see in sunlight. Do not perform the spark plug test in the temporal vicinity of the fuel test. A hot spark with gasoline nearby is dangerous.

A car that turns over means that at least the battery is good. Try next to insure it has air, gas, and spark.

Wont start

your first need to figure out if it is a fuel problem or a electrical problem. when you try to start it does it click? or does it does it crank and sound like it wants to start but doesnt fire up. check your fuel pump fuel filter and fuel relay switch. then check yourterminals on your battery for corosion then check and see if your spark plugs are getting spark.

I have a 2003 civic Honda .engine cranking but wont start.Fuel and Ignition were check already no problem was found. Is it maybe because I have change the original alarm of my car to a new alarm? Do I need...

I would check your firing order, and all the stuff with the distributor, no loose connections and stuff, check the condition of all your plugs, make sure they are gapped correctly, check everything, maybe your injectors are clogged or broken? (unlikely but still check it out) then at last check for compression. All you need is fuel, spark and compression to fire. Check all cylinders to make sure they are ok on everything.

Get your tools (for removing a spark plug) ready. Try to start the engine, pumping the accelerator a little while you crank. Take a spark plug out. Is the spark plug wet with gas (smell fuel)? If so, you are getting fuel. Hook the spark plug you just took out up to the coil, lay it on the engine where it will be grounded to the metal. Get someone to crank the engine, and check for spark at the end of the plug. If there is a good spark, that eliminates another problem (don't crank the engine, or let it run too long with the plug out). If you have spark, and fuel, either the timing is way off (broken, slipped timing belt/chain), or you have no compression (internal engine).

Do you have a "Check Engine" light, or any other warning light on? Recently you make any work there or disconnected the battery? Are you thniking in Theft, Immobilizer or Passlock security alarm? Is this occurrs and the keys isn't work, its need to re-programmed, for this need to visit your Honda dealer.

Keep us updated.

Turns over but wont start

first check fuel, then check to see if it is fireing at the spark plug. if it is fireing at plug, check to make sure it is getting fuel. ( should be able to smell fuel on the electrode end of spark pug). If it is getting fuel, and spark, you may try removeing all spark plugs, then shoot some oil into each spark plug hole. Replace plugs, and try to start. If it still wont try to start, may be out of time. Does it pop, backfire when you are cranking the engine?

TIP.A quick check for spark.........give it a spray of starting fluid....if it've got spark.
No spark usually means......a bad coil or ignition module on the 3.9.
No fuel is usually caused by a bad fuel pump.
