Timin chain and fuel pump has been replace after coil pack and cranshaft car turns but wont start.

if the engine is being turn'd over by the starter then the starter is fine. you say the fuel pump was changed have you checked it is pumping. and no air in the line. as an air bubble will stop fuel getting to the engine. also the coil pack was change was it for the same year as your car as there are meany types been made for different ecu types and if it is the a matching pair it will not spark. same with sensors they need to be paired to the right engine cam/crank... all these will make the engine not run. a pone looking there are 2 types of coil packs. and 2 types off sensor packs for different engine years check with the old part hopfully you still have them to the parts you have put on and make sur they match.

when cranking does it turn over smoothly or kind of lumpy? How many miles on it and has it ever had timing belt? You can test fuel pump, disconnect fuel hose in engine compartment and have someone turn key to on see if fuel comes out of line - that'll answer if pumps bad.

Have you checked the injector wiring? Each has only 2 wires you can check. If no power, test the injector power control module.

Car wont start

being 94' im sure it has high miles, cam and crank sensor common to fail over time do to wear and heat exposure. check the basic, make sure you getting fuel and sparks. fuel pump only work as long the engine is turning over due to the crank sensor sense the flywheel turning. crank sensor may be faulty. no sparks, check coil make sure is good and putting out 12v, auto zone can test it for free. good coil, than check cam sensor, cam sensor senses the cam turning and tell the ecu to tell the coil to disperse the sparks to the plugs. cam and crank sensors, there no way of testing it but replacing the unit unless you have the special equipment to test it; both is fairly cheap to replace, check ebay.

Car wont start, think its the fuel pump.

It sounds like you are getting air in your fuel line. Maybe not much, yet, but air none the less. The way to check this is to disconnect the fuel line from your fuel rail and put into a large coffee can or something similar. Then have have someone crank the car and if the fuel stream is not steady your fuel pump is going bad. If this is not the problem then you could be having a vapor lock problem caused by a bad charcoal canister.

Car wont start. turns over but wont catch.

The fuel pumpmay have failed. Try having someone turn the key to the ON position while you listen under the car near the fuel tank for the fuel pumo to hum. If it does not, or it sounds like it is grinding, then it may have failed. A pressure test with a gauge would be need to check for proper pressure.

First, look for broken or loose wires in the ignition circuit, and the coil wires. Then try fuel filter. Then, ignition module, coil, and timing. It could also be dirty or clogged injectors.

Sporadicly the car won't start , or it takes three cranks atleast to get it to turn over..i think its not getting fuel but i need help,,anyone?!?

Most likely your fuel pump is giving out. Im not 100% sure but I think the Fuel Pump and the Fuel Filter are located inside the fuel tank. Could be a tough job to take on by yourself.
