Good god people!
Glow plugs means not gasoline being burned, you will truly ever find spark to be the problem; I will only credit one of the answer guys for even being awake and on point enough to have a clue, the answer involving the coolant temp is the right one, I however will suggest another angle on living with this symptom: spill about two tablespoons of gasoline onto a clean rag and hold that over the air intake, crank it it will start. This will not harm anything and will confirm you have a faulty glow plug timing issue, and for the love of sanity buy the shop manual and follow the troubleshooting flow chart, the best answer will be there.

If the car has over 100,000 miles on it, you may need to replace the distributer. I don't think the bad gas caused this issue I think it may just be a coincdence. But if you already changed the plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor, I would definetly check the distributor.

I have same problem either glow plug circuit relay or power signal from main computer faulty. Could also be bad wireing harness they are notorious for this. We put a larger battery (higher cca) in to compinsate for excessive cranking a year later were changing the starter it seems summer comes and we blow it off till its noticable again. If you fix exact problem please let me know what it was if possible. GOOD LUCK and Thanks!

I don't have the solution but a possible help in diagnosing. If you remove the water temperature sensor connector from the sensor, the glow plug light should stay on when you go to start the car. Try leaving it on for 15 seconds and then start the car. If it starts right away, it is your sensor. If it doesn't, the good luck.
The sensor is located on the right side of the engine near the top, at the back. It is in the coolant fitting directly behind the hose from the rad, just left of the thermostat. Be careful to disconnect the wires, and not remove the sensor, or you will loose a lot of coolant. The sensor is held in by a separate plastic clip, and the harness just has a little built in clip on the side. Hope you have small hands...

sounds like a security issue they installed a factory security system which will prevent the vehicle from running unless its reset go to passenger door lock turn key twice it worked for me after chasing other problems for a few hours

U are going to have to pull the gas tank out and replace the fuel pump inside the tank, this is common when you run the gas completely out, the pump is cooled by the gas it runs in, if u run it low allot it burns out the pump bearings very quickly.
