Car will just not start but turns over. I have replaced the fuel filter fuel pump starter alternator battery and it's still doing the same thing. What else should I try?
Do you

I would try starting fluid to see if it starts for a second. If not, it sounds like the crankshaft angle sensor went out. Here is a guide that can help as well:

Can you please shoot a quick video with your phone so I can hear the engine crank over? That way I can tell for sure what's going on. You can upload it here with your response. Check out the images (below). Please let us know how it goes.

Thanks for the video. Unfortunately, it sounds like the engine lost the timing chain so it may have bent valves, to be sure we can do a compression test.

New problem. I tried to remove the coil pack and the rubber coils didn't come out with it. And when I tried to see the problem I seen they were screwed into the spark plug/
