I think your car has a standard type ignition coil. You did not say that you have checked this. Many people will tell you that the coil never goes bad, but I have replaced three in different cars in the last 2 years and in each case fixed my problem. If you have a test lamp or meter, check that you have voltage coming to the coil, and if so, swap in a known good coil to test with. Problem solved?

97 oldsmobile achieva wont fire changed coil pack spark plugs cam sensor still wont start


Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
If you having a problem with more than one system, I want to check for rpm signal, that usually comes from the crank sensor. Not sure why you replaced cam sensor? I always want to check sensor wiring circuits before replacing anything. Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.

2006 nissan x terra. spins over, wont start. replaced fuel pump assembly, crank sensor, left side cam sensor. not getting any cranking rpm from scanner. HELP !


This already sounds all kinds of bad.
Lets start with spark. Did you verify it can make 30kv at all plugs while cranking? f you havent...start there. Do you have any codes in any modules? Engine, theft, trans, body?
Do you have vacuum cranking, do you have MAF reading cranking? do we know if its mechanically still in time? Did you do a cranking compression test? If you have spark, and you remove the fuel pump relay...does it start when it isnt flooding? What is your system and reference voltage...what is cranking vacuum? And what tests did you run that inspired changing all that stuff? Check the c ranking rpm in Generic mode just rpm onscreen, some OEM software doesnt update well during cranking, with one pid selected, solus should update better than 10x a sec, If you still have no signal...you need to measure the crank sensor wires or verify the crank sensor ring is even turning,

I have 88 chevrolet corsica. No spark at the plug wire put new coils / module on still no spark can the crankshaft position sensor stop it from getting spark and i checked all te fuses Bill


Yes the cam sensor could fail to send a signal to the ignition module, but a V6 engine does not use a cam sensor.
It does use a crank sensor.
You would need to know that the ignition module and coils have battery voltage, then you would need a book to give you the test procedures for the computer and crank sensor.

It turns but it wont start,it has gas and power


Pull off the coil ignition cable at the distributor and check for spark coming out of coil when cranking engine over. Use a heavy rag or glove to hold the wire 1/4 inch from a metal ground. Should see a strong blue spark when cranking to verify ignition is good. If no spark, check for battery voltage to coil on the coil primary. If you have current to the coil, suspect a bad coil, ignition module, crank position sensor, or cam position sensor, or pcm. The coil, ignition module, and sensors can be tested before replacing.

No spark to spark plugs it just quit


it could be onne of three things, a crank sensor or a control module or possible coil packs, i would start by having the control module tested, if you remove it and take it to napa auto parts they will test it for free, if its good then put a crank sensor in it that should solve that problem, if the module is bed then replace it. hope this is helpful.

02 caviler.. cranks but will not start.. have replaced crank sensor,fuel relay sensor.ignition module as well as spark plug module... and replaced battery


Squirt starting fluid in intake and try to start if it starts and then dies you have a fuel delivery problem. Make sure you check the fuses for a blown fuse namely fuel pump or fuelpump relay. If it doesnt start after squirting starting fluid in the intake check for spark at the plug wires and coil.

'99 Saturn SC1 with intermittant check engine light P0341


a p0341 code mean cam reference performance, really it means you have a secondary ignition problem,,,,like a bad ignition module
a bad crank sensor
a high resistance spark plugs,do not use bosch platinum plugs in these cars
high resistance spark plug wires,,,i work at the dealer and the first thing we do is replace the spark plugs and wires if that dont work we replace the crank sensor,if thatdont work we reaplce the ignition mondule,and by then your fixed and you started with the cheapest items first,,,i would try plugs and wires and a crank sensor,,,,wires $50 plugs $14 crank sensor $37

No spark


Could be many issues: cam sensor, crank sensor, ECU. wiring ect...
I'dI start by checking/replacing the crank or cam sensor if ok I'd proceed from there. What car, year and engine?

Thanks,

1999 Chevy tahoe will not start


check the crank sensor. no signal from the crank sensor causes a no spark condition. best way to check is to put a scanner on and check for rpms.
the crank sensor is differnt from the cam sensor
