What do you by "turn completely over"?

Is the starter and/or solenoid making any noise at all when the key is turned to start?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is no noise coming from the starter. The truck will crank but it will not start. The truck was running perfect last night.
Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 year ago.

Ok, not start. Is there gas in the tank and does the fuel pump run when you first turn the key to run?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There's a full tank of gas. And the fuel pump does come on.

Do you have any starting fluid? If so, see if the engine will start for a few seconds after spraying a couple small shots into the throttle body. If you don't have any starting fluid, check the fuses for the fuel injectors and ignition, then if nothing found wrong, check for spark from a spark plug wire.

Ok. Buying starter fluid now.
