fireing order may be wrong or the dist. is in wrong. Although the above sentence is true, it's not the most likely problem, in my experience.

When you say "won't turn over," do you get a "click" from the engine when you turn the key to the start position? Or do you get absolutely nothing?

If you get a click but no turning, the starter isn't getting enough current or is frozen. That could be caused by an undercharged battery, lousy battery connections (corroded cables etc), or poor connections on the starter cable (less likely).

If you get a click and a little bit of turning but then a "jam," I might suspect the firing order or distributor being wrong as above, but you also could have a hydro-lock from gasoline in a cylinder from a stuck open injector. This should be rare, though.

If you get absolutely nothing, the battery connections may be extremely poor (or even reversed, if you just put in a new battery), or a fuse may be blown. Check the fuse box on the driver's side under the hood.

If the engine turns over (vigorously), but still won't start, that's a different issue.
