Hello,
So I loaded up the family this morning but didn't get out of the drive way as the Espace is on strike.  It's a 2001 with 2.0l 16V petrol and manual transmission.  The engine cranks strongly and I can hear the fuel pump prime when I put the key to 'run'.  While cranking, it doesn't sound like it's running on any cylinders as if there's a complete lack of fuel or spark.  The fuel pump and filter are less than a year old.  It ran well yesterday and has never had issues starting in the past. 

I'm going to start with checking for fuel pressure and spark.  Since it ran just fine yesterday, I suspect something like the immobilizer is broken or a sensor (cam, crank?) is out.  Any suggestions for weak links that could cause this condition would be appreciated.

Thanks,
David

So I found the connector to the crank sensor was held on with a zip tie as the housing to the sensor is broken.  After cleaning it up and refitting the sensor, it fired up.  I'm glad access to the CPS is really easy. 

Cheers,
David
