Attention Saturn Vue XR won't start. VIDEO IN POST!

Tried the battery at first, that wasn't it.
Then replaced starter.
That wasn't it.
Please watch video and let me know if you have any ideas.
Last time the car was driven, everything went just fine. Shut the car off, and the following day it started doing this.

The video is hard to hear... maybe get someone else to start while you record from the engine.

Is the check engine light on? Always a good starting point.

If it sounds like it starts to combust then dies, try spraying a little starting fluid into the throttle and see if it'll run that way.

Here's me doing a fuel pressure test on it earlier today.
After the starter tested good, my next guess was fuel pump or something in the fuel delivery system. Getting around 55psi.

Any ideas?

I'm gonna check air and spark next.

What gets me is this car was running fine when stopped.
Then the next day it wouldn't start.
Only thing of note was it was 10 degrees out the day it wouldn't start. We've had warmer days, up into the mid-30s, but have had the same issue.

Default Re: Saturn Vue XR won't start. VIDEO IN POST!

Why would you replace the battery and starter if it cranks OK?
It appears to have plenty of fuel pressure. Being that is does somewhat start but will not run right or for long points to maybe a timing issue. Possibly when you shut it down the last time when it was running good, the timing belt jumped a tooth or two.
