When you say it won't start, do you mean it doesn't crank or it cranks but won't start?

When it cranks does it sound normal? Or does the engine sound like its spinning faster than normal? Does it sound like Rrrr Rrrrr Rrrr Or more like Rrrrrrrrrrr? I know hard to spell out noises. My point is, if it spins faster than normal, could be a timing belt, I've seen them break when you shut the car off or when you start it up. If it cranks normal, we'll have to look at other possibilities CarsInc

If I were diagnosing it, I would take and spray some carb cleaner in the throttle body or in thru a vacuum line in the intake plenum then put the air tube back on if removed to spray carb clean then try to start. If it starts then you have a fuel delivery issue. If not, you may not have spark. Lemme know

I have a 2010 with a full tank of gas and it wont start but cranks. Sounds right . There is a check engine light on but I don't know if Its just coming on when I try to start it and lights up when all the other lights do or if its on. A few months back it wouldn't start all the sudden for me. My husband got irritated and went and made it start and it blew a ton of black fumes out the back end. I'm guessing that the problem now is some of the same. Probably needs a tune up and fluids checked and a diagnosis done to determine what is wrong with it
