Turns over but wont start

(1995 Ford Explorer)
in Sumter, SC on October 02, 2010
I parked my truck for 10 minutes, went back to start it up, but it turns over but wont start. Checked to see if I heard the fuel pump engage and it did what else could be the problem?

Even if the fuel pump buzzes when you turn the key on, you could have low or no fuel pressure. I would suggest a fuel pressure check. Even checking your inertia switch to see if it needs depressed.

You could also have an ignition system issue. Need to check the basics and go from there.
