My 2001 Saab 95 will not start. I have put a new fuel pump on it, charged the battery and our still will not crank. It's not getting any gas when I crank it. What could this be? Please help

If it's physically not getting fuel to the engine, it could be a plugged fuel filter. If it is getting fuel, check the DI (ignition cassette). If you have/know someone with a spare, try swapping that out first before spending 300-400 on a new one. Check the revision # as well. If it's 3.6 or older, it could very well be faulty. 3.7 and newer would possibly be ok still. If that's not the issue, try checking the CPS (crank position sensor)

Also, if the engine is not turning at all, there's a good chance it's the starter, or the battery is shot and won't hold a strong enough charge
