Check the fuel filter. There is a black rubber hose going to the carborater and should be a plastic filter take it off and replace it and see what happens.

Truck wont start engine turns but wont fire

If the trucks turns over and does not seem like the battery is dead I would assume it is spark or fuel. Check spark plugs to make sure they spark. Pull one plug at a time hold it against side of engine and have someone turn the truck over for you. You should see bright spark from all spark plugs. If you do see spark then check your Fuel Pump to make sure it is getting power and is opperating correctly also check your fuel filter to make sure it is not plugged. Good luck, Hope this helps.

You need to ck for spark . Pull one spark plug wire off at the spark plug end . insert a new spark plug into the wire and set the spark plug on the valve cover watch the new plug while some one try's to start the engine and see if their is spark if their is you have a fuel deliverery problem or a possible timing problem ,the alternator should not make it not start.

Car turns over but seems no fuel getting through from pump to filter

You need to find out if the fuel is reaching the cylinders and if the spark plugs are firing. Pull the spark plug wire off one plug. Insert a phillips head screwdriver into the end of the spark plug wire and ground it against a metal engine part. Try to start the car while observing the screwdriver. There should be a spark jumping from the screwdriver to the engine. If there is no spark, you will need to do further troubleshooting to find out why. Now, remove the spark plug that the wire cam from and check it for wet fuel. If the engine is getting fuel the plug will be wet with gasoline. If the plug is dry, Then either your fuel pump is not working or the fuel filter is plugged up. Let me know what you find and I will help you with further troubleshooting.

The engine cranks fine, but it will not turn over

Pull the spark plug and test it for spark or replace the plug and see if it will start. You need three things to occur for any engine to run; Spark,Fuel and air. It seems the air factor is ok, not sure of the fuel factor based on the info provided and spark needs to be verified.

Turn key to start-engine turns and i have spark wont start

I would check fuel pressure so you can rule out pump. I had a bad pump right out of the box before. Also you may want to change fuel filter so you can rule out plugged filter. You have spark, sure seems like still no fuel.

2001 santa fe will not start. was running fine. Fuel pump seems to be working all fuses good. engine turns over. ????

since the engine turns over, it can't be the starter.
Since the fuel pump seems to be working, it is not likely the fuel, but still could be. If you are getting fuel, the plugs should be wet by now. If they are not, then try spraying some starting fluid.
It it sputters at all, then it is a fuel problem still.
Which could be lots of things.
If it does not even sputter or the plugs are wet, then it is spark.
Verify by attaching one of the spark plug wires to a spare plug that is grounded. See it spark. If not, check for ignition power to the coil. If power, then suspect either distributer pick up or coil/control unit, all of which can be checked for free at a place like Autozone, if you bring in the parts.

Engine wont start

The spark plugs if they are blackish it means rich on mixture and thus they have fouled up and will give you hard start. If they are brownish whitish tht means they are ok, and if they are whitish means the engine is running lean.
Since you checked the the fuel pump and after removing the pipe fuel gushed out it proves tht the pump is functioning.
Getting back to spark plugs....remove one of the spark plugs and earth it on the cylinder head somewhere and fix the lead head to it and thn crank start the engine and see if theres good bluish sparks at the spark plug.
I would recommend you first to examine the spark plugs , replace them if necessary and try to start it.
Hope this helps!
