The first place to look is on your battery cables . look at the negitive cable at the battery you will see the main cable coming out and also a smaller black wire. this is your ground for the computer. if it has a bad connection it will not start. this is the most common problem to start with let me know how you do.

I have nisssan frontier o6 4 cylinder, I put a fuel pump , crank sensor, spark plug, still no start, engine spin over.

I would first check fuses. Second, check for any codes in the system. To make a motor run you need air, fuel, and spark. Pull a spark plug and use a spark plug tester while cranking the motor to determine if you have spark. If no spark, and you have replaced crank sensor I would suspect ignition control module unless you have coil over plugs. Also, when you turn the key on, listen for the injectors squirting fuel. Hard to diagnose with such little info. Just know your are missing one or more elements causing it not to start. If there is a mechanical issue inside the motor this could also cause a no start condition.

I have a 2004 geand am. the motor turns over but wont start. I changed the fuel pump, the ignition is good, fuses are all good but it will not start

Check for spark (pull a spark plug and arc it to a grounded surface) and check for fuel to the engine (can be done through the spark plug hole opened by removing the spark plug)

Need to check for fuel pressure. There is a schrader valve on the fuel rail on the belt side of the motor under the upper intake. Really common for those vehicles' fuel pumps to **** out. If you have fuel check for spark. You can do that by removing a spark plug then connecting the wire back to it and leaving the plug tip near unpainted metal on the motor. Step back DO NOT TOUCH THE PLUG WHILE THE MOTOR IS BEING CRANKED and have someone else try to start the car. You will see a blue or white spark at the tip if you're getting spark. An orange or red spark indicates a weak ignition coil.

Engine turns over but wont start? it has spark! and fuel!

Pull out # 1 spark plug and put back into plug wire, rest on motor block so that end of electrode is against metal. turn motor over and have a finger or compression gauge in # 1 cylinder, check to see if spark occur at same time as compression (compression will blow air past finger or raise gauge). When you say it has fuel do you mean gas tank has fuel? Are you sure fuel is getting to the cylinders? are plugs wet with fuel? Does it turn over but kinda thumps or backfire (Caugh)? Check the spark and compression first. if they don't happen at same time, the timing skipped or belt broke. if all is good pull plugs and inspect, could be flooded (WET) from fuel. either replace or spray with starting fluid and compressed air to dry them. spray starting fluid into air intake if starts then stalls, try again, if same thing happens then you have a fuel problem. try these suggestions first 1/2 hr time table, hopefully sucess, if not it sure indicates fuel.

Where is the fuel pump on a 1973 winnebago dodge 318? It will turn over, but will not start. Do you think its the fuel pump or something else? It has not been started for several years. Thank you so much...

Try putting a little gas in the top of the carb. Then try to start, if it starts then it's a fuel problem, clogged filter, lines, carb or fuel pump. If it doen't start with the gas then check for spark, disconnect a spark plug wire put on a spare spark plug, ground plug threads to motor and have someone turn over motor. You should see a spark between plug and electrode. Also you could check compression of engine, rings could be siezed and no compression will mean no start. If low or no compression, pour wd-40 or other lubricant into spark plug holes and let sit for a couple of days. Hopefully that would unsieze rings.

Wont start.

If it will turn over check to see if its fuel or fire. To check for fuel, spray quick start for a few seconds into intake. If it starts and stops. its fuel. Change fuel filter and check fuel pump. If it does not start its fire, Could be distributor cap, rotor, coil, spark plug wires or spark plugs. If it does not turn over it could be battery or starter. Check battrey connections, ground strap from motor to body and ground wire from battery to motor and body.
