You'll first need to find out if you are lacking fuel or spark to know where to go next. Do a basic test for fuel pressure with a gauge and spark at the plugs when it fails to start.

I have 95 cadillac deville with 4.9 i have changed plugs, wires,fuel filter,distributor cap,button,isc,new battery,pcv valve and still my car want start think next would be fuel regulator and fuel pump not...

Hi stop buying parts till you do a couple of checks.
The problem is either Spark or fuel.
We are going old school here.
1. Remove a plug wire from spark plug, with a gloved hand or insulated pliers stick the old spark plug or stick a phillips screwdriver about the same size as the top of a spark plug into the wire
2. hold the bottom of the plug or screwdriver about 1/4 inch from metal on engine block anywhere. Have someone try to start it and watch for a good spark to shoot across the 1/4 inch opening. If so you have spark.

3. Fuel D/C a fuel line somewhere on the fuel rail.
Put a rag over the end and have someone give a SHORT crank . Rag covered in fuel it's OK.

Once you find out if it's spark or fuel the you can troubleshoot the right system.

I would check n replace the fuel filter if needed. Also, it could be one of the spark plugs. Was it running before? Can you think of anything that happened or changed recently?

Mercedes Benz 2002 - C240 - wont start.

Most parts stores will have a fuel pressure tester available. This is the best place to start, as presence of fuel at schrader valve does not tell you if pressure is correct. Hate to say it, but without proper test equipment you will have bad luck trying to troubleshoot newer cars. For spark, use a timing light, or a cheap inductive spark checker pen. I got my last one for less than $5.

I changed the spark plugs and wires ive double check firing order , still wont start i also arc the a arm w starter just for a sec , ive checked fueses

Does it crank? If yes, do you have fuel pressure? Needs 55-62 psi of pressure.(Blazers eat fuel pumps like candy, and this one is inside the fuel tank) Is the check engine light on? May have a cam or crank sensor fault. Need to be certain before throwing parts at it. The fuel pressure test port is right on top of the intake manifold. There may be a factory security system that's been activated, do you have the key fob?

1996 gmc yukon giving p0300 code ive changed spark plugs and ignition rotor still misfiring checked for vacuum leaks and there was none

I would suggest replacing fuel filter and maybe having a pressure test on fuel system and if pressure is low this would indicate fuel pump is weak and may need to be replaced..hope this helps and Please rate my post and good luck.

96 model hyundai excel stalls while driving my 97 hyundai is stalling after driving for 10 min ive changed the coil spark plug leads and plugs the fuel pump still work ive pulled it out and tested it...

we had a hyundai once, that stopped and started for no apparent reason , after much looking at and mechanics it turned out to be some butterfly or non return valves leading from the fuel pump to the engine. they were closing up and stopping fuel from passing through , might be the same kind of thing . hope this helps
