THE ENGINE WAS OVERHAUL AFTER THAT IT FAILING TO START JUST CRANKING BUT PROMISING ,THE SPARK IS THERE WHY PUTTING MORE FUEL ON THE PLUGS


Did you check for spark at more than one or two spark plugs? The spark is there, and the spark plugs are wet with gas? Is it flooded? Or is it getting too much gas? For a flooded engine, you know to open the intake valve wide open by holding the gas pedal to the floor, and cranking for up to 15 seconds? This will let a lot of air in and clear out most of the excess gas. Or have you tried this already?
Spark, gas, and compression: that is all that the cylinders need to run. In a well-timed engine, that is. A little gas/air mixture, then compression, then a spark is delivered and it runs. One of those three things is not right or missing for your engine not to start. Or you will have to recheck timing.

Turns over will not start


Depending upon your level of expertise I would say pull a spark plug and look for a spark.

Any gas combustion engine requires a fuel mixture and spark to "fire" If you know your spark plugs are firing, then the problem is most likely going to be fuel flow.

If it doesn't fire AT ALL. and you are sure you have a good spark, then its probably going to be a computer controlled fuel flow issue.

Are you getting any "service engine soon" lights? Got a really good charge on the battery? Is the engine cold like below freezing? And I gotta ask.... are your sure there is enough gas in the tank? If its low and sitting on a hill its possible its not getting any gas.

If it turns, then the battery is OK. Either spark plugs are not firing in proper order (wrong firing order), no power to spark plugs, or no fuel because of fuel restrictions (dirty fuel filter). Inspect the air filter to ascertain its not clogged air. If you smell gas, then you saturated the spark plugs, which is why it refuses to run.
Let it sit for half hour to let spark plugs dry. Inspect to ascertain its not dirty spark plugs, which will also prevent engine from running. After ascertaining its proper firing order, spark plugs are clean, and there's power to distributor cap, ascertain there's fuel in fuel lines by squirting half second (short squirt) of starting fluid into air filter. Close the air filter housing to trap flammable starting fluid gas. Turn engine without giving throttle. Let starting fluid be ignited by spark plugs. If it won't start, then spark plugs are not firing to ignite starting fluid gas. If it starts briefly, but won't run when you give throttle, but catches when a 2nd person squirts more starting fluid into air filter just before engine stalls, then its a fuel restriction issue or no fuel in fuel lines.

My 2000 Chrysler 300m wont start it turns over but wont fire its getting gas but wont fire


Are you certain it's getting gas, does it smell flooded?
Pull one of the plugs, see if its wet after cranking.
Ground plug and check for spark, if no spark, problem could be crank sensor or coil packs.

My 1993 lx mustang will trun over but will not start. gets gas got fire, what next?


If it has fuel, spark and compression it has to fire even if it won't start did it jump timing? the belt or timing chain it would still backfire. Have a fire extinguisher
handy After you crank the engine put a rag over the schrader valve and push the pin down like on a bike tire gas will shoot into the rag if it doesn't you are not getting fuel. pick up an inline spark checker and see if it sparks every time the engine cranks over

WONT START AND TRIES TO TURN OVER BUT BACK FIRES


AWESOME a real camaro problem.
backfire.
strong odor of gas because the gas isn't getting burned
caused from backfire. backfiring because the spark isnt sparking when its supposed to.
problems could be bad spark plug wires , bad plugs , bad ignition parts.
your gonna need to check wires for bad spots, check ignition coils and stuff like that. if all that stuff is ok, then your problems have to do with inside the engine. jumped time etc.

Motor turns over but will not start, seems to be getting gas, & spark


I don't have enough info to give you a specific answer so I've listed a bunch of possible problem that could cause your engine to roll over but not start.
Check the battery and connections, a weak battery or bad connections can cause a weak spark and stop the engine from firing.
Fuel pump or fuel filter, low gas pressure can cause to lean of a air/fuel mixture for the engine to start.
Bad gas, old gas or water in the gas can stop the engine from firing.
Bad or fouled spark plugs, could be caused by bad gas.
Ignition wiring problems, can cause weak or unreliable spark.
Bad, poorly connected or misconnected spark plug wires. Even 2 wire out of order can stop the engine from firing.
Oily spark plug wires, can cause the spark to fire at the wrong cylinder or misfire.
Worn, damaged or wet ignition components.
