98 grand marquis that will not start. i know its not the battery or starter, plus i check to see if its getting gas and has a spark. my whole steering wheel assembly has been replaced i wonder if that has...

It likely is the place to start looking. Does the engine crank over but wont start, or nothing from the starter? If nothing, check for power on the small wire at the starter solenoid, when key is held in crank position. If no power, diagnose start wire from ignition switch to the starter solenoid. If power is at the small wire, but no starter action, recheck battery and starter connections, or have the starter tested.
If the starter works, but car won't run, recheck for spark at the sparkplugs. Have the fuel pressure tested-pressure is critical for injectors to work. If you still can't find the problem, your car needs shop time for diagnosis.

1995 Oldsmobile Aurora will start sometimes and other times it won't, I replaced the starter and still the same.

If the engine cranks but won't start, the battery and starter are out of the picture.
When it won't start, someone will need to check fuel pressure and for spark at the plugs to proceed.

97 gmc jimmy cranks but won't start, have replaced everything possible but still won't start, most of the time the brake lights won't work, or the gauges goes crazy. I have changed relays,...

There are two basic reasons for not starting - no spark or no fuel, both of which are controlled by the ECM. You need to check error codes and these items - for the spark, test it at the cylinder 1 sparkplug; for the fuel check the pressure (if too high or low, problem!).

I have a 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer ES 2.0L that has a problem starting. Battery is fine & if you push start it it'll start 4-5 times with the key then not start. Replaced starter and the problem remains

When you start the Lancer, does it actually turn over and start? Or does it sputter while you're pressing the start button?

This is what I would start with. First, I'd find your fuel regulator and follow the vacuum line that leads to the engine - then unplug that. Find some extra tubing or rag that you can replace that plug with to keep it sealed. Then, if you're car starts running, you'll know its just a bad regulator.

If that doesnt work, the second thing I'd try is pulling off the air-intake and spray some brake cleaner in there to see if it will start. If that works, then you have a fuel leak or clog somewhere thats preventing your fuel from reaching the sparkplugs.

Hope this helps-

My chevy monte carlo 2000 3.4 won't start it makes a sound similar to a drill ... I took out the starter and tested it and it passed but it definitaley sounds like the starter I don't know what it...

With the starter removed, have someone slowly turn the engine with a wrench (you may need to remove sparkplugs) while you check the condition of the ring gear around the flywheel. You may have teeth missing from it which would just let the starter free-wheel. Also check the starter's gear if you didn't do it before.
If those both check out OK, you may just have a corroded cable or clamp in the path to the starter. It draws 100-150 amps when loaded with the engine and any tiny bit of resistance will drop so much voltage that the starter won't fully engage.

Car won't crank after running through water

If it wont crank the engine then its probable that water has gotten into the starter or engine fuse bay and and damaged either of these. You can try leaving the hood open for a day or two to let the engine bay dry out and see if the car will start but with water damage its best to get it into a dealership or shop right away and to call your insurance company.
