There are a couple possibilities to look at first. Sometimes it's just a little air and fuel is not getting through yet, if that's the case, try a little starting fluid to get the engine running for a few seconds. While a helper is cranking the engine, give the air intake a couple short, 1 second sprays of starting fluid. When the engine starts, just use enough starting fluid to keep it going. IF it's just an air bubble it should work it's way out within a few seconds. On the other hand, sometimes when a vehicle runs out of fuel some of the sediment and grit from the bottom of the tank works it's way into places you don't want. There is a screen around the fuel pump in the fuel tank. If the screen gets plugged from sediment, you won't be driving until you get it cleaned out. The sediment can sometimes work past the screen and into the fuel filter. If the filter is plugged you'll need to take care of that before you can drive. Then there is always the possibility that it didn't REALLY run out of fuel, was just low and something else is wrong... hope that isn't the case.
An engine which cranks but will not start is not receiving enough fuel or has no spark. A clogged fuel filter or bad spark plugs often cause this problem.
Engine cranks but doesn't start.
Check engine compression Check engine timing
No, The compression test is done as the starter cranks the engine

i hit he curb and put a hole in the oil pan ,i replace the oil pan now the engine cranks but doent start. what could be the problem
Diagnosis: Engine Won't Start or RunCheck related link below
For some reason it is not getting EITHER fuel OR spark , so it cranks but doesn't start
it could possibly be a bad coil, crank shaft sensor, or cam shaft sensor.
Valve timing off, timing chain jump.
Cuz wyotech blows
kanotter valve clogged
The most common would be engine cranks but does not start.
In a sense, motors do have cranks installed. It is the starter that acts as a crank to turn the engine in order to create a spark and start it. Any device, whether manual or electrical, used to rotate the motor in order for it to start, is called a crank.
main fuel relay, under dash. re-solder points or replace unit.
Is the ecm seeing engine speed. Does the check engine light come on. Do you have at least 12 volts to ecm.
A 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee engine that cranks but is not starting and has no dash gauges is experiencing an electrical system failure. This can be a result of a faulty ignition switch or damaged wiring.
do you mean it cranks, but will not start?
