Q: Car won't start up.

A: It sounds like your car cranks but isn&#39;...

It sounds like your car cranks but isn's starting, if that's the case it's missing one of the three requirements for combustion; compression, fuel, ignition. If, while cranking, the car sounds like it always has and not much faster than usual you can rule out compression, which leaves fuel and spark. Have a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, test for spark and adequate fuel pressure.
