Question Answered: 

When a vehicle cranks over, but doesn't start, there are several things that can cause this. You need to check for the appropriate fuel pressure and make sure the injectors are firing properly. The ignition system needs to be checked to see if the spark plugs are firing, and that the timing is correct. In addition to these things, the engine timing needs to be checked. You can start by checking trouble codes and see if any are stored as this may help direct you to the cause of the problem.

It's important to see if any of the pulleys are out of alignment, if so, they will need to be corrected. If all the pulleys are aligned correctly, then look at the condition of the belt, if it has cracks, then it should be replaced. If the belt appears OK, then it may be glazed or contaminated, or you may have a bearing in one of the pulleys that is starting to fail.

If the engine is shutting off instantly, then it sounds like you may have an electrical component that is shutting off. This could be a relay that controls the fuel pump, the fuel pump, or an ignition related component. It's unlikely related to the fuel filter, or the charging system. Have a shop check the trouble codes for you and see if any codes are stored, this is a good place to start.

You'll have to have the codes read out to determine the cause. Could be a low battery voltage, bad ABS sensor or a bad control module, but without the codes, these are all just guesses!
