Do you have spark? fuel pressure? could be a number of things need to narrow it down.

Changing the plugs and wires isn't necessary to get it started. Was it okey before you worked on it? You need spark and fuel,preferably at the correct time. What have you checked out and what tests have you done.

Enige cranck but will not start

So after all that time and money, do you see fuel spray from the injectors when you crank the engine ?
If you have spark at the plugs and fuel spray, the gas may have water in it.

I have a 1.8l zetec, '96 Mondeo. Problem started with the engine occasionally staling while my foot off the accelerator. Now I can cranck it (makes a monotone continuous sound) and it starts if I insist...

It could be the pump. Have the pressure checked. If it is within limits then I would do a tune up on it. PLugs, wires, airfilter, fuel filter.

Running fine. Died and wont start. Cranks fine

can you hear the fuel pump kick on when you turn the key on but without crancking the engine? Generally the fuel pump will prime for about two to three seconds when you first turn the key on. if you don't hear it that's probably the culprit. If you do hear it it may be a bad pump. also should check to see if you have spark. You can do this by removing a plug wire and using another spark plug. Ground the plug to somthing metal and have someone crank the engine (making sure you are not touching the plug or metal) You should see a spark while cranking. Good luck

1995 Honda accord does not start when car sit for a while

Check your compression. If you don't have a compression checker, take the plugs out, shoot a squirt of oil in each cylinder, replace plugs and crank engine. If engine starts, you are probably looking at a bad set of rings.
