Check fuel pump relay and or fuel pump pressure.
If you can take some starting fluid and spray some into the breather and it starts then look at fuel pump and or fuel pressure and or relay.

I have a 1996 mercury sable that wont srat i pulled up at home about 2 hours later tried o leave and it did not start, i checked the coil pack for a spark and it gave no fire, so i replaced the coil pack...

Probably the crank sensor, do you hear the fuel pump 'buzz' when you turn on the key (not cranking the engine, just key on)? If you do hear the fuel pump (only lasts about 2 seconds), it may be the ignition module, otherwise it is probably the crank sensor.

Geting fire but wont start

You bang on the fuel tank with a broom stick or a 2x4 and some one cranks the engine, if the car starts that means you need a fuel pump if it dosent then you need a cam sensor.

1997 , wont crank

if starter will engage and engine can turn over quickly it should start.

however.. i dont know how you are verifying it has fuel as its a high-pressure FI system.

these systems by GM are VERY finicky and unless within spec precisely it will NOT run. i suspect fuel pump is putting out less than 57# which is min for these.

fuel pump known failure part. if replaced you MUST also replace wire harness at tank as they usually fail internally w/melted wires you cant see through wire sheath. low voltage will KILL the new pump.

also you didnt note engine size and family...

Engine wont start seems to be a fuel injector problem ,not fuel pump,has fire to coil and plugs.5.2 v-8

It is the VATS system (vehicle anti theft system). The codes need to be cleared out and lock and unlock the drivers door from the outside with the key. This is most likley the problem if the injectors are not geting pulse or check the crank sensor with a scan tool in datastream, it will show RPMs if it is getting crank signal.

95 tbird want crank. replaced fuel pump still want crank

Hey Poochbear,

I had this prob with my Avenger where it would keeping cranking and turning over and wouldnt start, turned out my distributor and crank sensor went out. Once i got those parts replaced, it fired right up. Also check to see if your car has an ignition module. But 9xs out of ten its usually the 1st of the 2 that i mentioned.

Hope that helps.
