Alfa romeo 156 None starter

1.8 litre, none starter.

Drove fine the previous day, came to start the following day and just
cranks, and cranks and cranks but doesn't start.

It doesn't even sound like it's going to start.

Check for spark, and all have a strong spark.

Fuel is flowing.

Spark plugs are wet after cranking.

Tried push starting, still won't start.

Tried 2 keys

No warning lights on when cranking.

I first thought the belt might have snapped, but removed cover and belt is fine, turned the crank by hand, cams move.

Started the car in gear and it jumps forward like normal.

What else can I check?

Do you have an 'electronic' throttle? Is it working?

Alfa 156 JTD

Crankshaft sensor failed? - just happened to me this week, but mine went as I slowed down for a motorway roundabout. I really thought it could be cam belt gone, but it turned over in gear to get out of the way. Cheapish to get - interesting to change!!!!
