Is the engine getting fuel and spark?

Try to put a few teaspoons of gas in the throttle body to see if it starts up. If it doesn't then the engine's spark plugs may not getting spark.

A possible coil may be the root of the above problem.

If it does start and run for a few seconds then the spark is good, but the fuel pump may not be pressurizing (bad fuel pump) or the fuel injectors are not firing (possible PCM or Powertrain Control Module).

A crankshaft position sensor can also cause a no start condition.
It is located near the Crankshaft of the engine.

Here's more information about the crankshaft position sensor which if bad, can cause a no start or no run condition.
Crankshaft Position Sensor Engine speed is a very important input to the Engine Management System (EMS). Crankshaft speed and position are the basis for many calculations made by the computer. Crankshaft position values are transmitted to the computer by pickup coils also known as Permanent Magnet (P/M) generators, hall-effect sensors or optical sensors. The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) also known as engine speed sensor is located in close proximity to the crankshaft.
In addition, the EMS uses minute variations in the CKP sensor data to determine engine misfire. The EMS uses this information in conjunction with the camshaft position sensor to perform misfire diagnostics.
Related Symptoms No Start / Intermittent Start Condition – Can be caused by a faulty crankshaft position sensor due to loose connections, bad grounds, high resistance in the circuit, or opens in the circuit. (See also Engine Mechanical)
---
These are just a few possibilities, and if one takes it to the dealer to have the engine diagnosed, that might be a good place to continue of the above doesn't isolate the problem sufficiently for repair of the no start condition.

Have you checked your fuel filter and fuel pump to be sure that they are functioning correctly? That is the first place you should start.

Don't let the car run out of gas. Fill the tank and run until the tank is half empty. Again fill the tank.
By driving until you run out of gas, you are letting sediments/dirt collected in the bottom of the tank to enter the engine. Rather they will block the fuel filter. Then gas will not reach the engine.
Clean the gas filter and your car will run fine.
The same advice again. Don't drive until the tank becomes empty.

With all this hot weather everywhere you are now member of a growing club. That is the clogged fuel filter and worn out fuel pump club. You are experiencing "vapor lock". Cooler weather lets most restricted fuel systems go unnoticed. Start by replacing the fuel filter. Usually located under car on drivers side, in front of rear axle.

Turn the key forward and listen for the fuel pump to prime. It should sound like a low humming noise comming from the fuel tank area. If you don't hear anything. . . it's most likely your fuel pump or possibly the fuel pump relay.

Car won't stay started


When gasoline sits for that length of time it turns into a varnish like substance. It gets the consistancy of something like real sticky warm creamy peanut butter. (basically turns to thick sticky muck). Which plugs the pick-up screen on the fuel pump, the fuel injectors and can even plug the fuel lines. Fuel injectors are designed to "spray" the fuel into the intake in a very fine mist. I believe the reason it starts then dies is because even though the injectors are plugged they will "drip" fuel because of the pressure that fuel injection works on. The "drip" is just enough to fire the engine and then die.
What you can do to confirm that the problem is actually fuel related is, using a can of carbuerater cleaner (in a spray can) start the engine while spraying into the air intake. If the engine keeps running as long as you keep spraying, the problem IS fuel related. If the engine doesn't stay running when sprayed. Then the problem is NOT fuel related. I don't recommend using "brake clean" to do this because some brands of "brake clean" are non-flammable. I hope I wrote this so that you understand what to do. Good luck.

Lite poped on for gas filled it and now wont stay going


You got a tank of bad gas. You need to drain the tank and refill with good gas. If that doesn't resolve issue you need to check fuel pressure to see if the fuel pump gave up on you.
