Crank over eliminates a dead battery, switch, starter, etc.

How do you know it gets fuel? It is clearly the air/fuel mixture and ignition system that is failing. If those work but it died or stalled it would be a fuel system issue, such as bad MAP sensor, etc.

Fuel injection or not? Fuel injector do get dirty, I use Gumouts Complete Fuel System Cleaner to clean the whole fuel pathway but it may be too late for that this time. Anyhow, they need cleaning and they still use spark plugs to light the gas and those will get corroded over time but can easily be brushed clean. I've never had to clean my fuel injectors, try YouTube for those instructions.

2000 ford 4.0 explorer cranks but fails to start. It acts like it starts after sitting all night but then only cranks, what is wrong?

Check for spark to the sparkplug. Try a shot of starting fluid as having gas pumping and having the fuel injectors opening are 2 different things. If you have spark, then the fuel injectors may not be working. Quick diagnosis is to use starting fluid and see if engine tries to run. This indicates problem is not lack of spark but lack of fuel getting into cylinders.

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.

98 ford ranger, cranks, but does not start sometimes

With intermittent issues, have to do testing when problem is ongoing. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs, if spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?

You will want to find out if you are not getting spark or not getting fuel.
If no fuel, then bad fuel pump, plugged fuel filter, or bad fuel pressure regulator, or bad fuel pump relay.

If no spark, then bad crank sensor, or ignition module, or coil packs.
