Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. Have you checked for spark and fuel while cranking? What size engine do you have? Can I start by getting your VIN? Thank you!

Expert:  AMEDEE replied 6 months ago.

Thank you! Does the check engine light come on with the key on? Does it go off while cranking?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Shouldn't I smell fuel if I press on the gas pedal I mean by the engine . I've flooded it before and could smell it but nothing now
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 6 months ago.

It is possible.. if you have fuel but no spark, then yes, you might smell fuel. I would verify that the check engine light comes on with the key on and that it goes off while cranking. This will verify that the computer is awake with the key on and it recognizes engine rpm.

Check engine stays on
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 6 months ago.

If it stays on while cranking, then you might just have a bad crankshaft position sensor..

How do you test and where's it licated
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 6 months ago.

With the key on, start by checking the red/light green wire for battery voltage. If that checks out good, then check the signal out of the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor using a scope or voltmeter. The CKP signal wire is the Gray/Orange (GY/OG) wire at the 4-wire sensor connector. Leave the sensor connected and back probe the wire, looking for a 0-12 V square wave signal when the engine is turning. The crankshaft position sensor is located LH Side Of. Engine, Near DIS Module
