Start with the basics. Check for fuel, spark, then compression. All three need to be present for it to run. HTH. -Jim

my 06 is doing the same thing, ran hot and now wont crank,. Fuel and start works but i havent checked the compression. Where do i start with on compression


I cannot understand why you would replace parts without knowing they were bad. Js08016 is right - check the basics. First I would check for spark. If it's there, I always try a shot of starting fluid if the engine cranks but won't start. If it starts, you know you have a fuel problem - filter, pump, injector, throttle body, in that order.
