An electrically shorted air flow sensor can cause a crank-no start condition. Diagnosis may show that ignition spark is normal, and there are no trouble codes stored.

    Engine cranks but does not start. When used some starting fluid at air intake it starts or tries to start for a while before stopping. Checked the fuel filter it was clean, but surprisingly there was not fuel in the lines, everything was totally dry. Filled more gas in the tank, but the situation does not change, no fuel in the lines. I am pretty sure that the gas is locked in the tank either pump or some kind of safety valve. Will appreciate if some one can help

    Cranks won't start. Starts after about 15 mins of trying. Will periodically chug and die. Restarts after 15 mins of sitting. No check engine light.
