the above sentence is true, it's not the most likely problem, in my
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
If you get a click but no turning, the starter isn't getting

undercharged battery, lousy battery connections (corroded cables

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,
If you get absolutely nothing, the battery connections may be
