Engine codes, have you checked them? Are ALL your connections good to ALL your sensors? AND to the ECU?
Crank positon sensor can cause this...but no guarantee it's the problem...
Now, that said, check for spark, pull a plug, ground it, and see if it sparks when you're turning it over...If not, check the timing belt...easy way, take the top two bolts off the front cover and pull it back, and watch it while cranking...or look under the oil cap at the cams while cranking.
If no all is turning, and looks good, pull a fuel line, preferably the one coming from the pump. Upon cranking does fuel come out? If not, bad pump or other blockage. Replace pump.
If you have good fuel flow, time for compression test
I have the exact same problem right now.. I noticed fuel on the exhaust manifold though, I believe there is a broken fuel line/return line somewhere.. check to see if you can see any fuel anywhere. good compression???
Does that mean it's your timing belt?... or are you just repeating what people are saying.
I would pull the distributor cap to watch the rotor spin rather than watch the cams through the oil cap.
If your timing belt isn't actually broken and you just decided to repeat people's responses... does it sound like it wants to start? Have you tried massaging the throttle? Floor the throttle? Etc while cranking?
