Icon5 1994 4.0 Turns over but won't crank

I am pretty much in desperation mode at this point. Here are my symptoms:

- The truck will turn over very nicely, but wll not crank.
- Checked the fuel filter by blowing through it. No obstructions.
- Cranked the truck with fuel filter out and the pump pumped gas onto the ground.
- Replaced crankshaft position sensor
- Replaced ignition control module
- Replaced ignition coil
- Getting a voltage too big for my meter in plug wires

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Maybe a better way to say it is that it cranks, but won't start? No problem turning over, but it will not run at all.

so it cranks like it tries to start but doesn't, yeah you should check you oil to see if your head gasket is good, generaly when you blow a head gasket you get coolant in the oil, bad fuel injectors or regulator, you could check the psi of the fuel system, did you try playing with the throttle when you tried to turn it over

sounds like you have a loss of compression. Do a compression test. Check for signs of a blown head gasket. oil in coolant.

Have you checked ALL the fuses ?
Will it fire if you spray a small amount of starting fluid into the intake ?

Checked fuses and relays - all good.

Sprayed starting fluid and it still did not crank.
