There are many things that can cause an engine not to run. DON'T JUST REPLACE PARTS HOPING TO CURE IT. Take it to a garage and have it diagnoised properly. When you turn the ignition key to the ON position (without starting the car), you should be able to hear the fuel pump (a buzzing type sound coming from the back of the car). It will run for approx 2 secs, then shut off. If no sound, one of the things you can check is the fuel pump cutoff switch. Sometimes the switch has tripped and needs to be reset by pushing the push button on it. The switch is about 2" by 2", has wires on one side and a red push button on the other side. The owners manual should show where this is located. It's usually in the trunk area somewhere behind the carpeting.
