Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 Ford explorer xlt sport and it won't start.It ran fine until one night I put gas in,parked it,got up the next morning and it wouldn't start.It acts like it wants to,but won't.So far we have changed plugs and wires,Cam crank sensor,fuel pump and filter,reset pump safety switch also the anti theft switch,still won't run.What else can it be?
Also it is titled as a 2005 but was actually built in 2004.

when you put the key in and turn it to the 'on' position, can you hear the fuel pump circulating fuel through the fuel rail?

Yes,we also changed the coil

NO sputter? no sign of life? if you've got power to the coil pack or packs am going to suggest the engine timing is off....do you have over 100,000 miles on this motor?

It trys to start,just won't.My Explorer has 140,000 on the engine.

okay there are two things that you should do...assure there is a spark by unscrewing a sparkplug and have someone turn the key while you look for spark.....when that's okay have someone put a compression tester in there to see if our valve timing is still okay~
