Have changed to crankshaft sensor the oxygen sensor spark plugs and wire and wont start even when it is turning over


Borrow a fuel pressure tester from Auto Zone and test the fuel system. It could be that you have a bad fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator. It also could be a plugged fuel filter.

Changing fuel filter in 2001 pontiac sunfire gt 2.4 litre and changing plugs


You all really need to get more specific. You've just got a situation here, no question.
The fuel filter is integrated into the fuel pump, inside the fuel tank.
Spark plugs are easy.

First listen for the fuel pump. when you turn the ignition to "on" , just before start, you should hear the fuel pump whining. What you need to do is remove the fuel line going into your fuel rail. Get a small container and turn the pump on and off a few times to get some of that bad gas out. Reconnect fuel line and see if that works. If that doesnt work, Next would be to change the fuel filter which is just behind the rear axle. Other than that you could drain all of the fuel by disconnecting the fuel line to the filter and let it all drain. I dont see a lot of water getting into your port just by leaving the cap off. You might have bought bad gas.

I need to know where the fuel filter is and how to change it?


The fuel filter is located under the rear of the car, rearward of the fuel tank just above the rear axle.

I would check the codes first, with OBDII systems the codes will give you a good idea of what my be doing it, the ETS off is your Electronic Traction-control System, either you have the emergency brake pulled up or it is a seperate issue,

things that may cause your symptoms are,
bad fuel pump-check fuel pressure,
bad MAPS-running the codes should show you if it is but you can also do a diagnostic test
misfire-same as the MAPS, codes will let you know which cylinder then it would be a matter of replacing spark plug and wire(I can't stress enough on getting high quality plugs and wires), if that does not fix the misfire then a compression test is in order
bad coil pack(s)-misfires on two cylinders that are on the same pack, sorry but I do not remember which cylinders are fired by which pack but if you follow the plug wires over to the pack you will see,
vacuum leak-hard to identify but may also have something to do with your ETS light, check the booster vacuum hose for cracks
bad IAC-again the codes should tell you but they may not,


there is the points that I would start off with, I hope that I have been helpful
