Time to make some lemonade. I recommend you search the forums to find the answer, because I can only imagine how many other threads are out there that detail every possible reason your car won't start.

Work your way down the list and find out what's wrong. That or hope the car wasn't sold to you "as is"

Does it turn over at all? More details will help. Could be flooded, bad coils, plugs, starter, etc.

I love how every forum is the same. A new user, granted that's not an excuse, comes in and asks a question and 50% of the replies are, "SEARCH!" or something along those lines. Just help the guy out. Not everyone spends all their time on the forums like we do.
