You need to confirm that it is getting fuel to the fuel rail.
A "wild card" suggestion is...there is a safty switch in the trunck that shuts the fuel pump off if someone bumps the rear of your car. Look in the owners manual to find its location, and how to reset it. Other fuel problems could be the pump or fuel pressure regulator are not working

SOURCE: engine turns over fine, won't start

the fuel line is located along the passenger side of the frame, and there is several links/splices, including the fuel filter, located just behind the passenger door. check along those lines. My truck wouldn't start and I had a small leak, when I fixed the leak, it started and ran fine. hope this helps

Not sure which sensor you are referring to but I would check the crankshaft sensor which is located in the transmission bellhousing where it meet the engine. It is adjustable and it could have come loose. The sensor "reads" a tone wheel that is part of the flywheel. If the gap is to wide it cant read the tone wheel and output to the computer the proper signal to fire the coil.

Won't start


need to check a few things .is there spark and is the gas coming to the motor. turn the key and listen for a biz noise from the gas tank, if you got that then the fuel pump is working, you need to see if you have any spark to the spark plug. if there is no spark then you need a crank position sensor

Car turns over but won't start


Which engine?

I would first check the following:
Are you getting spark at the spark plugs? If not, check the ignition coil or coil pack.
Are you getting fuel to the engine? Make sure there is fuel in the tank, and that the fuel pump is working.
Check all your fuses to make sure they are OK. A blown fuse to any critical engine component (ECM, ignition, fuel supply) will prevent a vehicle from starting or running.

2003 kia Sedona won't. start


If this is a sudden occurrence and nothing suspicious happened prior, you most likely lost either gas or spark to the engine. You need to check for both.

Do you hear the fuel pump in the gas tank buzz on for a couple of seconds when you turn the ignition key to ON? Unless the fuel pump turns on and puts gas under high pressure at the fuel injectors, the engine cylinders won't get gas to start. Correct fuel pressure is crucial to know if you have a fuel pump (or fuel filter) problem. If the pressure is correct, it is probably not a fuel problem but a spark problem, although there are less common instances where a fuel injector circuit may malfunction.

The ignition system not producing spark at the spark plugs is the other common problem of no starts. Buy a cheap spark tester at a parts store, plug it into one of your spark plug wires, then crank the engine over and watch for a strong blue spark. You might need a helper to do this. If you see a consistent spark, the ignition system is probably good, although you should probably check more than just one plug wire-sometimes one bad ignition coil in a coil pack will cause no starting. Good luck.

My 1999 buick turns over but won't start I had the ignition module checked & it was ok it appears that i am getting spark any ideas why it won't start?


It could be that your fuel pump is not getting enough fuel to the engine to start it. Is your starter turning over or trying to start the engine.
