New crank sensor, two new camshaft sensors, six new spark plugs and new battery. There is over a quarter tank of gas. I need help.

Hi,

It is really hard to read the scan tool. Can you let me know what the actual codes are? Also, have you checked for spark and fuel to the engine? One is likely missing. If we determine which one it is, then we can focus on that circuit.

Let me know the codes. Also, take a look through this link. It explains the most common causes of a crank no start.

Also, if you haven't checked for fuel and spark, see if it will start for a couple of seconds using starting fluid. If it starts and then stalls, we know it's fuel-related. If it still does nothing, chances are it is ignition-related.

Here are two more links that explain how to check fuel pressure and ignition spark:

Let me know what you find. Also, let me know the specific codes.

Take care,

Joe
