I have been trying to start my car since Saturday and it just wont turn on. It makes a effort to start but it turns right back off. The radio and light turn on. We tried giving the car a jump but that didn't work either. I don't know what to do next.

Be sure that you haven't run out of gas. If there's fuel in the tank, the next thing would be to check for spark and fuel into the cylinders. Check for compression. Also, the timing belt needs to be checked to be sure that the engine's in time. Sorry, but you haven't given me much to go on. Maybe find a Toyota specialist.

Could be your starter if it never starts the engine, otherwise, I can't tell from only this information.

Recently replaced a broken ignition switch,battery,alternator and starter.I can smell fuel if I pump the gas pedal when trying to start.It tries to start but wont turn over completely.My wife runs ...
The motor turns over, great battery power. After waiting several minutes the car will start and then chokes out. Could it be the crank sensor?
RAV4 started running hot - radiator was changed - several months later - ran hot again - head gasket replacement recommended but another mechanic found no leaks and said all cylinders were in spec....
