Check the Camshaft Position Sensor or the Crankshaft Position Sensor. Those are the modern day Distributor Caps of the 21st Century, if neither of them are working the ECM (Computer) does not know what position the Crankshaft is in so it will not be able to start your motor.,

Car ran fine driving down the road lost and died wohld not restart but cranked until battery went dead jump start still crank no start where should i look first


Check your fuel filter. If it has not been changed for awhile, it may be plugged. The car would then be starved for fuel and quit. After sitting for awhile, enough fuel may get through, but after running a short time it will die again for lack of fuel.
Another thing to check is your ability to get spark to the spark plugs. You coil(s) may have died and need to be replaced.
You could also have a crack in your distributor cap if you have one and the spark is shorting to ground. You may also have faulty spark plug wires that need to be replaced. You could also have a blown fuse to feeds battery power to the spark coil. You could also have an open ballast resistor in line with your spark coil and it needs to be replaced. Gas or Spark, but how the spark is generated really depends a lot on the car. Here's a test you can run to check for whether your car is starved for gas: Get a can of starter fuel and spray a couple of puffs (small amount) into your air cleaner. Once the battery is charged, try starting it. If it starts running and then dies, you can be pretty sure you have a gas problem.
One last possibility is that your exhaust is totally plugged. Do you feel or can an assistant feel any puffs or unburned exhaust coming out of the tail pipe? If no vapors come out, it could be plugged.
Oh, one other thing it could be. Your plugs may be flooded, especially if you pumped the gas pedal and it is a new model car. If it smells strongly of gas, your spark plugs may be wet (flooded) with gas. In that case, remove all spark plugs, disconnect your spark system, turn the engine over to blow out excess fuel, dry your spark plugs and reinstall them.

first things first you should stop just throwing parts at a broken car its a waiste of your money...
first things first, check to make sure you have spark, then check the fuel pressure, can you hear the fuel pump working when you first turnthe key one with out starting the engine, also verify that you have power to the fuel pump. 90% of all fuel pumps replaced are missdiagnosis's. most of the time its the fuel pump relay. so check these things first before replacing anything else.

You either have a bad starter or ignigtion switch. When you turn the key on does everything else come on? I would check the starter first if you have power to everything.

Battery went died got new battery now wont turn over


Can the truck start up with a jump?

If the truck can start with a jump then check the voltage at the battery posts.

After warm up (10 minutes), it should read 13.8-14.6V

===
Some part store can do a diode check on the alternator for internal defect/short/bad diode/ripple voltage.

Check for spark on the plugs.

With key on (do not turn),listen for the fuel pump rotation noise.

Check the fuel pump relay or security system fuel cut off

1992 ford ranger will not start


I would check the timing of the engine.
The timing may have skipped .
I would check the fuel pressure. The fuel pump could have took a dump.

Can you hear the fuel pump coming on when you turn the ignition key but do not turn it over to start.
IF you do not hear the fuel pump coming on replace it.
