I have changed the spark plugs and wires. I know that there is spark as I have check that out. I also change the plugs one at a time so they are in correct firing order. The car was running fine before I made these changes. I have also went back to the auto store to make sure they sold me the correct plugs and wires. The car turns over but will not start!

Any suggestions where to start from here!
Thanks for your efforts.

Well. Have it towed to a shop and have them look at it. And next time, have the experts do it. No offensive.

Or actually, now that I think about it. Check to make sure all the cables are plugged in fully and correctly.

No offense taken and I appreciate your reply!
However. I have done what you suggested and traced back over the necessary steps to make sure they were accurate! Never came accross this type of issue before while changing plugs or wires!
Thanks,

Casperl,

I actually will look into that this evening and let you know. Last night I tried to start the car after pumping the gas peddle two times, I could not smell gas from the intake.

Thanks, TR

I think there is something wrong with the fuel line if you cannot smell gas at the intake. Maybe you crossed something and gas isnt getting through the line. Or this problem could have resulted from something else that has nothing to do with what you did. Not sure - let me know what you find out.

I appreciate your help!

Here is the latest after last night.
There is gas getting to the fuel injectors! I check everything out on this! Fuel Filter, Fuel Pump, Etc.
I check one of the spark plugs to see if it was getting fire.( IT IS NOT FIRING ) so I double check all the connections, plugs, gaps, wires, firing order, fuses Etc. Still no fire getting to the plugs?

Any suggestions?
Thanks.

Make sure the pice that turns to hit each one in the firing order, is spinning properly. Let me know.
