My engine is cranking but not turning over? I do have fuel.

Customer Question
My engine is cranking...

My engine is cranking but not turning over?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuel supply? And are all the spark plugs working?

I do have fuel. How do I know if my spark plugs are working?..... This happened to me back in August. I had a bad fuel pump and took my car to Firestone. They replaced my fuel pump. Could it be this again???

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

2005 Mazda Tribute

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tribute yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I am not fixing it myself. I reallty haven't tried much so far. I'm kind of hoping its the fuel pump as mine is under warranty

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I don't think so
