05 Altima cranks but wont start, new cam and crank sensor, new battery, fuel line is ok???

If the car sat, would bet all the money in my pockets that it's bad gas. Adding fresh gas won't solve the problem. You need to add a fuel stabilizer ( purchased for under $10 at Autozone) that you just add directly to the tank.
It could also be the case that the coil wires are dry and cracked from sitting, cause sparks to ground out.

Whenever your car won't start it is always one of three things-- fuel, spark or air. I hear you saying fuel is coming in, but to be sure you could try spraying a quick spray of carb cleaner or better yet starter fluid into the air intake and see if it briefly starts. If it does, then shuts down immediately, it's a fuel issue.

If not, then it is likely spark (air is usually not restricted but you may as well check the air filter and throttle body and make sure they aren't clogged. )

Check the spark in each cylinder. The problem could be a bad coil or fouled plugs.

If fuel, air and spark all check out, then the problem could be timing but this is highly unlikely.

My 95 Pathfinder has sat idle for a couple months and now it won't start.

letting a vehicle sit idle for months is not good !!! now you need to do some work, so get out your check book ! replace both air & fuel filters, replace spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap & rotor, add fresh fuel & fuel injector cleaner to tank @ same time. why are you going from accessory to run, that doesn't make any sense, stop it, please ! now get to work, good luck !

My 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo had the upstream O2 sensors go bad. I didn't get them replaced for a long time and the vehicle just sat parked. I just replaced them. I had to charge the battery and...

depending on how long it sat, and also on if you had the code cleared when you replaced the o2 sensors could be why the light is lit, Now for the not starting, again depending on how long it sat ,, check the fuel pressure, you need a constant 6 lbs of pressure , also check for fire, pull one of the plugs,, reattach the plug wire to it,, hold it with a pair of insulated pliers, and ground the bottom of the plug to ground, any bolt attached to the motor ( as long as its a metal surface) will do, have someone crank the motor , Look for a nice blue spark arching across the tip of the plug, if it does, you have spark, put the plug back in, if it doesn't, you need to back track the electrical system,, follow the wire back to the dist cap,, remove the cap, check for any burn marks or charred or eroded contact terminals inside the cap,, also check the rotor tip, and contact rotor button in the center of the cap,

1995 AUDI 90 CS - Hard to start... spark & fuel OK

Have you tried replacing the starter? I know starters can go bad if the car is not started or run for a long time.

I am getting the same car, with the same issue.. it sat for 2 yrs and won't start.

My mechanic told me it is probably a starter.
