Answer . \nI would say the car is not getting any fuel. you could try replacing the fuel filter which is cheap. It could also be the fuel pump which is probably in the tank.(try tapping the gas tank with a hammer lightly) If the car starts then it is probably the pump. The last thing i think it c…ould be is that is isn't getting any spark. Take the spark plug wire off the plug itself and put a screwdriver in the hole and make sure it is touching the metal part of the plug. Have someone try to start the car and hold the screwdriver near a piece of metal, if you see a blue spark then the car is getting spark, if you see nothing then you probably have a bad coil. \n Answer \n. \nCheck all the plugs most of time one of the points is not making contact and no spark will hit on newer vehicles if all cylinders are not getting spark your engine will turn until the battery is dead..if points are not clean 1 cylinder will not fire and it will not start check points and plugs and it will fire right up (MORE)
Answer . \nI can't say for certain but I think that year has a crank sensor which could be bad also it could be a fuel problem or even an ignition problem
I think I understand the question. If you are talking about it not starting after you have drove the car and it is hot. If that's the case, it probably means the timing is off.
Answer 1 . There are probably severable possible reasons, but I can only think of a few at the moment. Some of the reasons include:\n. \n1. Misalignment of the starter when installed, which allows the teeth on the starter gear to bind with the the teeth on the flywheel, thus preventing diseng…agement after the engine starts.\n. \n2. A defective starter solenoid, which remains [stuck] in the start/engaged postion.\n. \n3. A defective ignition/starter switch in which the circuit providing current to the starter solenoid winding coil does not "open" as it should when the key is released and thus be allowed to return to the "run" position.j3h.

Fuel pump replaced twice only way to start Chevy silverado 2000 v6 is unplugging battery for a few minutes then it cranks up whats the problem?
Answer . \nThere might be a sensor that is shorted or bad. Whenever you unplugged your battery you are resetting the car's computer data that are use for reference to run the car. When the computer is reset it start to relearn all the data from the sensor from the vehicle. The will run but at it… minimun performance. When all data are collected, the computer can operate the vehicle in the maximum performance. However, if there is a bad sensor the computer will be instructed to the vehicle to run in a limp mode or safety mode to avoid potential damages to the vehicle. An example would be if the car overheats the computer will shut the vehicle down by killing fuel line and thus prevent fire. My suggestion is to scan the car computer with a scanner and see for any failure codes. Good Luck (MORE)
will run a few seconds if gas is dumbed in throttle body 57 fuel pressure.Key on engine off, pump running, fuel pressure should be 60-66. Probably a faulty fuel pump.
The engine needs fuel, compression and spark to run. You are missing one of those. Year, make, model and engine size would help us help you.
Answer . is the floor wet under the seats??? if the sir (air bag module) get wet and and crusty....it drags down the uart data line.....(the line that all the computers talk to each other)to ground.....look at that
Cranks but won't start: In a situation like that I always tell people to go back to the basics: Spark, fuel and Compression. If you have all three, it should start. The spark has to be at the correct timing, but if the vehicle was running and suddenly stopped, there isn't much reason to believe that… the timing changed. The fuel has to be delivered in an approximately correct quantity for the engine to run right but it should at least pop and attempt to start. So... Start with fuel. Using starting fluid, spray in the throat of the throttle body while a friend attempts to start the engine. If the engine runs while you're spraying, you probably have a fuel problem. Check the fuel line for pressure. If you don't have any it's probably the fuel pump. It's in the tank and you'll have to drop the tank in a suburban to get to the fuel pump. It isn't as bad as it sounds. Disconnect the battery first. Siphon out as much as you can get easily, disconnect the fuel fill pipe from the tank, using a floor jack, support the tank while you remove the straps. There are usually only two. Once the straps are disconnected, lower the tank and remove the fuel line and the wires to operate the fuel pump and fuel gague. You'll have to clean the top of the tank so that you don't get debris inside, then remove the screws and work the pump assembly out of the tank. On the other hand... if you have fuel pressure and the engine doesn't start when you use the starter fluid, you probably have a problem with ignition. Pull one spark plug wire, then using a spare plug from some other source, attach the wire to the spare plug and lay the plug on a metal part of the engine, then crank the engine and watch the plug. If you have spark it might be something else. If there is no spark, find out why. It could be the pickup coil, electronic ignition module, high voltage coil or even a bad rotor in the distributor. It's all a process of elimination. Remember the words of Sherlock Holms, "When all other possibilities have been eliminated..." Could be flooded (especially if carbureted), you could have a wire disconnected if you've been messing around under the hood, or there could be humidity in the distributor. A common fault is the Crank Position Sensor (CPS). This is an induction coil mounted just above the crank pulley. If the tachometer does not register at all during cranking, the CPS has probably failed. (MORE)
Answer . The problem is in spark, or fuel. Rarely the Crank angle sensor. ECU could be going bad too.
The engine needs fuel, compression and spark to run, it is missing one of those.
What might be the reason for a 1998 Prelude to have a knocking sound in the engine when running but a lot of trouble starting or cranking if it starts or cranks at all?
Have you been getting regular oil changes? Always keeping up on your oil changes are extremely important, and failing to do so severe engine problems like these. I could ask if you are using premium gasoline which is required for Preludes, but they have knock sensors so you don't have to worry about… that. (MORE)
Does it turn over real free and easy? Then could be a broken timing belt. If not that then spark and fuel. Spark issues could be a bad coil, ignition module and fuel issues could be bad fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator etc. Hope this helps.
Its the cold start fuel sensor giving you troubles. Its flooding the engine with fuel.
If a 1998 mountaineer crank will not start, check for faulty spark.This can be done by removing a spark plug wire or coil pack fromone of the spark plugs. Then insert an extra spark plug into thewire or coil.
dead battery, no spark / bad coil, bad plugs bad wires. no fuel / bad fuel pump / fuel rail.
There could be several reasons a car will crank but not start theengine. One reason for this issue could be the spark plugs are notfiring. The car may needs a tune up. A mechanic can fully diagnosethe issue concerning the engine not starting.
I can give you COULD BE answers without actually seeing the engine.. COULD BE a bad starter. COULD BE a bad selenoind. COULD BE a bad starter drive. COULD BE a couple of teeth missing off the flywheel, not allowing the starter to engage.
It COULD be low initial fuel pressure. Test that hypotheisis by turning the key to "on" for a few seconds, then turn it off then start it. If it starts right up you are probably leaking down while the engine is off. It could be the fuel pressure regulator or the fuel pump. Either way, if that's what… you discover, you have to decide if it's worth the expense. (MORE)
An engine which cranks but will not start is not receiving enoughfuel or has no spark. A clogged fuel filter or bad spark plugsoften cause this problem.
you need a new battery A Different Answer If the engine cranks, then the battery is not the problem. Inspect the spark plug and clean/replace and gap to specs. If the spark plug is okay and has a good "fat" spark, then the problem lies in the fuel system. The fuel filter may be clogged and no…t allowing the fuel to reach the combustion chamber, or the fuel float may be stuck closed. (MORE)
It either has no fuel going into the cylinders (no pressure from fuel pump), no spark, or depending on it's age and if it sounds like it has some life in the motor, bad timing chain. I had a similar issue with my 1992 B250. After replacing hundreds of dollars worth of parts, I found the problem was …a blown fuse link(white 22ga wire) right next to the power brake booster. Bought some wire and rosin core solder at Radio Shack for $11.00 total, replaced the link and it fired right up. Google images has a pic of the Haynes manual page on repairing fusible links on Dodge vans. Just as a heads up, the insulation was intact on my broken fuse link, which caused me to overlook it initially, but I went through them all and gave them a tug and the bad one just stretched like a rubber band.

try pressing the fuel reset button located under the dash on the passenger side Lack of fuel or spark is the cause. You must determine which one is the problem and proceed from there.
no gas. no spark. no compression. no timing. dump a cap full of gas down the carb and if it fires you have spark, meaning you have a fuel problem. if it doesnt fire, then you have a spark problem. try a new coil or distributor cap, clean or change the points, clean or change the plugs/wires.. …if that doesnt work you need to check compression. a simple thumb over the spark plug hole works, or use a guage. fixing this problem involves a rebuild.. if your distributor cap is on wrong or the shaft is in wrong or the cam is 180 off, these things will all affect the spark of your engine. (MORE)
If your check engine light is on replace your camshaft sensor if your check engine light isn't on it could mean theres a fuel problem you may have a clogged injector or a fuel pump going bad
Gasoline engines need three things to run - air and fuel (in the proper proportion), and a spark (at the right time).. The first thing you must do is figure out which you are missing.. air - throttle linkage? valves not opening (cam and valvetrain)?. fuel - gas in the tank? fuel filter? fuel pump…? carburetor or injectors? computer dead?. spark - plugs? wires? coil pack? distributor? pickup or crank trigger? computer dead?. You need to know how, or learn how to check these things. It's tough to impart enough knowledge in a couple of paragraphs but that's a start. (MORE)
Probably however the oil is usually only in the petrol with a two stroke motor.
Could be a number of things but if it was starting O.K. one minute and then started acting up, Crankshaft sensor, down by the air conditioning compressor, Cam sensor, behind the power steering filler upper. Or also could be the fuel pump or fuel pump relay .
turn the key to the on position but do not crank the engine. Leave the key in that position until the light goes off or stops flashing(I cant remember which) it will take a few minutes. after this occurs turn the key off. this will reset the theft system which has most likely been activated. the veh…icle should start at this point. This is as good as I can remember from when this happened to my car, (MORE)
I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY CONTOUR AND IT ENDED UP BEING THAT THE FUEL INJECTORS WERE LEAKING DOWN INTO MY CYLINDER THEREFOR "FLOODING IT OUT"
2002 Diamante Engine cranks slowly then starts Sometimes won't crank and radio loses presets Jump start engine cranks normally and starts every time?
You need a battery. There's a very small chance it could be something else, but from the symptoms you describe it is more than likely a bad battery.
What are the three elements needed in order to make an engine run. You need air, fuel and spark, minus one from this equation and you get nothing. So, with that said go through your check list for your electrical and fuel system.
cvheck the fuel pump.if that dont fix it check to see you have spark by touching the spark plug wire to the block if it has spark then that ain't it. otherwise take it to thne dealership and have them put in on a diaognosdtic machine if it has the check engine light on
\n. \nThere are a couple reasons that your escort will crank but not start. The first is that the engine is getting no fuel. This could be caused by the fuel pump failing or a block in the line. If you turn your key forward to the click right before it turns over, and the fuel pump is operating,… you should be able to hear a faint humming coming from your gas tank or somewhere between the fuel tank and engine. Another reason could be that it is getting no spark. This could be caused by a faulty wire or a faulty ignition coil, ingnition relay, or loose distributor cap. Another reason your car would crank but not start would be no compression. Caused by a leaky gasket or head being cracked. (MORE)
For some reason it is not getting EITHER fuel OR spark , so it cranks but doesn't start
To test for fuel: . Ensure fuses are good . ensure there is fuel pressure via shreder valve with fuel pressure test gauge. . ensure injectors are getting pulse, with noid light . Has recent work been done?
I had same problem. Take apart the distributor and there is a coil or component that looks like one of those portable batteries for hand tools. Its beneath the rotor assemble which all unscrews. Its towatd the bottom of distributor. I replaced coil package? if that was the correct name for $20.00 us…ed and it started right up. (MORE)
I crank the engine 3 to 4 times before its start..?so what is the problem of my car dodge caravan 2001...
Any number of different reasons. Most likely the starter in the Miata needs to be replaced. Search on here for how to do it; I posted the instructions already, and it's very easy for one person to do. Please Re read question, if its cranking I assume the starter is functioning......
there are many things that could be wrong, check all fuses and relays dealing with ignition and fuel, make sure fuel pump is turning on, remove a spark plug(keeping on the wire), ground it and crank and see if it sparks; beyond this you may need to have a professional take a look at it
There can be several things wrong. How many miles is on the car?? Most cases if a vehicle will not start but does crank over then ethier there is no spark or no fuel. You need to trouble shoot the problem so you will not end up replacing parts that you do not need. There is a simple test to eliminat…e it is a spark or fuel problem. If you have starting fluid, have someone crank over the engine while you spray a little starting fluid in the throttle body. If the car starts but shuts down right away then you have a fuel problem. If it does not start then you have a spark problem and it could anything from a simple tune up to the coil packs went bad. Also, there is a electronic control module underneath the distributer cap. They do go bad every 30,000 miles and it costs about 30 dollars. If it is the coil packs they also cost about 30 dollars a piece and there are 2 of them. (MORE)
The engine needs compression, fuel and spark to run. You are missing one of those, probably fuel. The fuel pump is probably the most common component to fail. Spray a little starting fluid into the engine air intake and try to start it. If you get a response the fuel pump is your culprit.
check the spark plugs or cylinders. you also may want to test the battery to see how much juice is in them. another possibility is gasoline not getting to the engine so I'd check the gas line as well.
bmw 316i 1993 petrol car will crank but wont startthe wire is somewhere disconnected how do i findout where is the electric wire disconnected. ( the rats have chewed the wire from somewhere) . please help
Why would 2000 Mazda protege shuts down in motion and does hard start when hot and engine cranks but will only start when allowed to cool-there are no DTCS from diagnosis and crank sensors changed?
I am having the same problem with my 1.6 L but i think i have isolated it to the MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR / AIR INTAKE SENSOR. Did you get yours fixed? What did you end up replacing?
it could be the gas line or even the ignition,, id take it to a good mechanic who is very firmiliar with Honda because it is a foreign car..
Is the ecm seeing engine speed. Does the check engine light come on. Do you have at least 12 volts to ecm.
Your Caterpillar 3406 diesel engine might crank over but not startbecause of a lack of fuel. The fuel filter may be plug or the fueltank may be empty.
1997 Chevy S10 engine will crank no start - have fuel but no spark I have replaced the ignition coil ignition control module and crackshaft position sensor and still nothing new?
In case you haven't done so allready, check all the fuses under the hood and in the dash.
