I just want to add the vehicle dit started ones but it had a timing ping when driving, but after it did not start.

Check if you are getting spark at the plugs .

check fuel pump is energizing and fuel is getting to the

injectors .

Quick test is to spray ether down the throttle body when cranking over the engine,

if engine starts you have spark but no fuel no start check for spark .

What work has just been done on this engine if any .

Check this then please get back to me .

Okay spray ether (EZ start ) down the throttle body when trying to start .

If she starts check fuel pump and pressure .

if fuel is good do a engine cylinder compression test .
