You're going to have to give us a lot more information than that.

What is your trim level? Is your car supercharged? What troubleshooting steps have you already taken? Is your check engine light on?

It'* a good idea to add your year and trim level to your signature.

The basics:

Got spark? Got fuel?

Lift each plug wire from its post on the coil- hold it just far enough away so you can see a spark jump. Have someone crank the engine. Repeat for all 6 wires.
Got spark?

Turn key to run (not start) for 5 seconds. Turn key off. Remove cap from schrader valve on fuel rail and depress valve stem while covering with a rag. Some gasoline should squirt from the valve. (Be careful!) Got gas?

You can have a good spark on all six wires, and gas in the fuel rail, and still not start, but this information will tell us where else to look.

Better description of problem = better diagnosis.

Actually...one thing before the test Bill above says.

What is the security light doing? A solid light means you have upset the VATS gods and they are keeping you from starting.

Once a few of these questions have been answered, you will have tons of info and people to help you.

Also..mention where you are located. We have tons of members willing to meet new people and help out on their cars.
