Spay some starting fluid into the air intake. See if it will fire up. If not, pull a couple of plugs and see if they appear to be black and fouled. You may have a bad Engine Coolant Temp sensor. If bad, they can cause too much fuel to be injected upon start up and flood the system. Get some MAF cleaner and give you Mass Air Flow a good cleaning also.

Thank you plugs are not black and fouled can I check anything else? Changed rotor and cap also

No codes so it's a tough call. Do you have anti theft? You might want to put a fuel pressure gauge and see what you have for pressure. May have a bad regulator.

If you are getting fire,do as reelin68 said,sound,s like fuel pump may not be pumping right.

if you have proper fuel pressure and spark then check that when you just turn key to run position that the check engine light does come on. If not check for a blown fuse. Check engine light should come on when key is first turned on. This is to let you know that the computer has power. If it does come on then try pressing down on the gas pedal a little while trying to start it. If it starts or try's to start then check your idle air control valve and or egr valve. Either could cause this. If still nothing then I would do a compression check to check for bent valves due to a timing belt issue. Might also want to check timing belt for proper alignment and while there check crank position sensor. Sometimes a bad belt has been known to damage the sensor causing a no start issue.

I have a 2001 eclipse that will start for a sec then die out i just replaced the fuel pump can it be a fuel pressure regulator or what please help no trouble codes shpw whem scanned
