The fuel injection is not getting gas. Fix or buy a new fuel injection pumb.
Ford introduced the 4.6 liter engine in 1962 in the Ford Fairlane. It was a replacement engine for the 5.0 liter Windsor engine.
Engine rotates but will not start
WHITE SMOKE is engine coolant / antifreeze burning. That is due to a head gasket leaking on the 5.7L 350 engine.
The starter is out?
I had exactly the same problem with my 1996 Dodge Intrepid. The fuel pressure regulator was leaking which caused flooding of the engine if the engine were off for the right length of time. Too short and the engine did not have time to flood. Too long and the fuel evaporates and engine is no longer flooded. Just right and the engine is flooded and hard to start.
Keeping the plug wire out of the way, Start the engine. In a few minutes the engine pressure should push out the porcelain center from the plug. At this point you can use a tool called an easy out to remove the threaded part of the plug.
5 QTS. with a new filter. Some hold 6 qts. start with 5 first.
Your question is sort of backwards, perhaps you meant what causes engine failure? Engine failure causes...the engine to fail. If someone told me their engine failed I would take it to mean that it stopped running, or wouldn't start.
Timing needs adjustment is the most likely cause.
could be the fuel pump, numberous amounts of sensors, or your coil , first I would check the fire then see if its getting gas if it is its a sensor or timing chain or belt
The security is keeping it from starting which is what it is supposed to do.
At cylinder 1, should be labeled on distributor cap.
Maybe, but not likely.
Check the timing belt.
A. No fuel B. No spark
It's lean. You have to figure out why.
Check the battery and the connections to the engine.
You probably have a little oil seeping into the combustion chamber while the engine is off. Once you start the engine, this oil is burned and causes the smoke you see.
There is no such engine as a Cummins 2500 Diesel.
Starter won't crank over engine? Battery or battery connection issues. Starter cranks over engine but engine won't start? Being a GM product I would suspect fuel delivery problems (bad fuel pump).
The remote start is disabled when the check engine light is on. You need to have the system checked for codes with a scan tool to know possible causes.The remote start is disabled when the check engine light is on.

There isn't one set answer for this. It'll have to do with the displacement of the engine, the output of the starter required to get it to crank at enough speed to start, etc. Huge difference between, say, a 4.6 liter Land Rover V8 and a 12.0 liter Detroit Diesel 8V92 diesel V8.
Your 2000 GMC Sierra Vortec might be hard to start because the battery or the starter are worn or dead. The GMC Sierra might also be hard to start because of a clogged fuel filter.
The timing of the engine is off or the spark plug wires have been hooked up incorrectly.
