Question 2002 Sedona will not start

I bought a 2002 Sedona at an auction, no key, so I went to the dealer, they told me that a coded key was not required and gave me the key cut code, went to locksmith and cut a new key. Before I tried to start - charged the battery, checked all fluids and belts...there is gas in the tank... all looked good. Odometer reads ~ 250,000 km. (must be a lot of highway miles)

OK tried to start.... turns over fine but will not run.... it seams as though it wants to start but does not. unhooked the air intake and squirted some gas directly in.... still no start

Have been doing lots of reading... no apparent answers... crank position sensor? Immobilizer .... is there one on a 2002 without a coded key?

Would any of you experts have a step by step troubleshooting list that I should follow to find the problem. What the most common?

There is 3 coil packs but I find it hard to believe that all would go at once. Fuses all appear good but I'm going to pull them all one at a time to be sure.

The first thing to look at would probably be to check the timing to make sure that the crank and valve timing marks are lining up correctly. The car may have had a timing belt slip and alter the timing. It is a good idea to replace the timing belt on any car you don't know the history of any way.

Question 2002 won't start

Timing is good .... van sat for ~ 2 weeks, T turned the key on and it started right away, then stopped afer ~ 10 seconds ... would not start after that. I talked to a mechanic and he thought it might be that the fuel might be too rich... He told me to hold my foot to the floor with the gas pedal, then try to start it... apparently this turns off the injectors??? ... The the next time I start it it should be good...

I'll give that a try tonight

fingers crossed

that didn't work

Someone Emailed me and said there is a Fuel Shut-off on the 2002? I don't see anything mentioned in the owners manual. Does anyone know if there is one? and if there is .... where might I find it? Is there any chance this somehopw needs a coded key.. how would I check for this? with the serial # ?

any ideas?

thks
