Both cold or warm

So does it crank over but just doesn't start, right? Can you hear the fuel pump prime when you turn the key?

Geno Severs

Yes I can hear the fuel pump and it cranks over good just won't start it will start with 20 or 30 trys

Tom Demyan

Next I would check for spark/ignition system.
