Re: EF Not starting

If it turns over and doesnt start then its either not delivering fuel properly, or it is not sparking properly. Things that could be wrong might be - fuel pump, filter, regulator, coil pack, computer.

I would check for spark and proper fuel pressure and go from there.

Also could be something mechanical like a broken timing chain, but you would have noticed if that had snapped.
