EGR diaphragms get stuck and cause problems. Also test compression in the cylinders, neutral safety switch, and catalytic converter.

SOURCE: BMW X5 2000 problem

There can be many causes for the car not starting. Generally it is usually a fuel or a distribution problem. Many fuel problems of this kind are related to electronic injection and ECU. This kind of troubles often need special equipment, and can be fixed only at a well equipped garage, where they can test fuel flow pressure and volume in monitoring ECU feedback at the same time.
Simple things you can do are
Checking and eventually replacing fuel filter.
Checking and eventually replacing air filter.
Check that there is no oil on top of new spark plugs.
In last case try to listen if car is running on three cylinders, this can leave uncombusted oil on cylinder, and mean there are troubles with distribution or camshaft.
It is useless replacing one of the sensors without testing them, and when a sensor is gone you usually get some additional light on your instrument panel. At a garage they will connect straight to the computer and get an error message in return, in case one of the sensors is bad.

Sounds like the fuel pump, as the levels of the fuel tank drop, there's less natural pressure on the fuel, which would definitely make it harder to start with a weak fuel stream from a bad pump.

SOURCE: 2001 volvo s80 no fuel pressure. cranks but

Most likely there is an issue in the fuel delivery system. Probably a fuel pump, however i would check out things like fuel filters, pressure regulators, or pinched or damaged fuel lines before going to the expense and awkward and timly task of replacing the fuel pump which more than likely involves removing the fuel tank. About a 10 hour job if your a DIY, a mechanic in a professional atmosphere can do the job in about 3 hours. Hope this helped!

2000 Volvo s80 sparks but doesn't start??? Help!

do you have fuel pressure? Check schreader valve on fuel rail for fuel pressure (push little pin in and see if fuel squirts out) If not, your pump is not working. if you do, you may have a cam or crank position sensor that is not working.

Fuel pump or fuel filter.

fuel pump or crank camshaft sensor ,if no codes most likely fuel pump in the tank ,if check engine light on check the codes and expect crank cam sensor usualy crank sensor will cause it to cease running ,when that happens check the spark by removing one wire and watching for spark close to the ground or spray some fuel like carb cleaner or starting fluid into the air filter and see if it starts

Engine turns over but won't start. plugs and wires changed

A diagnostic check of the vehicle will pinpoint your no starting problem,but if that isn't an option for you and you want to do the work yourself, follow these step's:
Check for spark WHILE TRYING TO CRANK THE ENGINE. If no spark is present,check to see if there is power coming from the switch during cranking. If you have spark,check to see if you are getting fuel. If you aren't getting fuel,check your fuel filter(it coud be clogged) and check ALL fuse's. If you aren't getting spark AND fuel,then check the crank sensor as it is the controller for spark and fuel delivery.

Stopped while driving replaced fuel filter and pump and crank shaft senor

I suspect you have a bad camshaft sensor. It is part of the distributor. To check, remove distributor cap and rotor (1 screw for rotor) and check for brown dust. If yes, remove slotted wheel and clean optical sensor. If car starts, you need a distributor.

Crank sensor has no affect on system. It is used for back up only.

Can you hear pump run for 5 seconds when you turn key on?
