SOURCE: crank no start ,got fuel got spark, when trying to

You pinched the fuel line????
If you crank for too long to start the car, the engine will "flood", this is why the plug was wet. It had too much gas and wouldn't start.
Pull out ALL plugs and dry them off.
Install them.
HOLD your gas pedal to the floor and crank.
This will stop gas from entering the engine.
you need to get that extra gas out beofre it will start.
If you have so much gas in there you can do damage to your engine!!
Now after a few crnaking attempts with your foot to the floor, take your foot of the gas pedal and try to start it again.
But remember if it doesn't start in 3 tries, you need to do the pedal to the floor once or twice to remove the excess gas.
When you crank the car to start it sprays gas into the engine, even if it won't start. So it very easy to "flood" the engine, and then you'll have a hard time to get it going!

Why won't it start?

You say that but something is wrong!! If the engine is catching then the fault may not be major. I am assuming the vehicle is gas rather than diesel... Check the sparl plugs are clean and undamaged and correctly adjusted. Check they all give a good spark. Uou say that fuel is present, it has to coincide with the introduction of the spark in the combustion chamber...if it does not the vehicle will not work.
If all plugs give a very good spark check the fuel supply is adequate and then the timing.
If the plugs give a weak spark at the electrode replace the wires also check that the distributor cap is in god condition. A weak spark might also be associated with a failing coil/coils

Ensure your battery is full of electrolyte and is fully charged

1992 mx-3 v6 won't start. will hit sparaticly as if about to start but just won't catch. checked crank pos. sensor. need suggestions on how to proceed.

Check for a blue snapping spark on 2 or 3 plug wires(or all of them). If you get good spark, then ignition is likely not the problem. A weak or sporadic spark could be a bad coil or coil pack, or a bad ignition module (the ignitor).Check the coils with a volt-ohmmeter per the specs for your car. The ignitor can be tested at a parts store.
If spark is good, check fuel filter, fuel pressure, check timing marks on crank pulley and cam marks, Try a little starting fluid in the air intake and see if it runs for a moment. If so, then it's likely a fuel delivery problem. If no change, then it's likely an ignition circuit problem.
Good luck.

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.

Heavy rain, stalled a couple of times. Now barely starts, sounds muffled when it does start, low power when driving, engine light keeps blinking, won't stay started once take foot off gas, started...

Pull distributor cap and dry it off. Dry the wires. Not fixed? Change the spark plug wires.This rotary is wet at a source in ignition circuit.

Driving just fine on expressway, suddenly it quits. When trying to restart, tries to turn over... getting spark, seems to be fuel related. Is it possible for a fuel pump to go out with no symptoms at all?...

Sounds like its probably your fuel pump. Some electric pumps have automatic shut-offs in case you are in a collision. This could also have tripped. It is usually reset by a button on the fuel pump.

My mazda protege died in middle of driving. i changed the fuel pump, it drove properly for less than an hour. then it started loosing power where it would go up and down in speed. over the course of 3...

Probably your spark plug get wet (water get into your spark plug), so it doesn't work quite well to give high voltage spark to burn fuel.
Clean your spark plug by removing spark plugs of 4 cylinders and clean, start engine to blow out the residue water in spark plug socket. And install spark plug into 4 cylinders

The truck will turn over, but won't start

Check the throttle. Make sure it isn't sticking shut preventing air from getting in the cylinders.
Are you getting spark? If the spark plugs aren't new, pull one out and look to see if it is bad. If it looks pretty crummy, replace them and try again. Check to make sure the distributor and wiring harness to the spark plugs aren't falling apart or disconnected.
Check the compression in your cylinders.
Check the gas flow
You need spark, gas, and compression (involving air) to get a turning over vehicle to fire up. Check all connected with these, testing with each change, to try to isolate the problem. Those listed above would be my starting point. It looks like a relatively new vehicle, so i would start with checking the spark plugs to see if there is anything awry with your cylinders (this spark plug diagnostic chart could help )

Driving and the car shuts off automatically

Hondas have problem with ignitor in distributor that overheats and shuts off spark momentarily. then car will restart and shut off some time later.

Wouldn't hurt to change wires anyway if old, especially if new plugs were installed. Get the most out of gas mileage that way!!!!!!!!
