94 Buick Roadmaster cut off & won't start it turns over but won't start i replace optispark and ignition core star and fuel pump still kicking do you think you would be the camshaft position sensor


First you want to know if your ignition system is working, so have you checked for spark?
If the answer is no, go to a parts store and buy a calibrated spark tester, real simple and inexpensive. Hook it up to one of your spark plug wires, crank the engine over with the key (as if you were starting it) and see if you get a strong blue spark. You will need a helper to turn the key while you watch for spark on the tester. If you have good spark, you can assume the ignition system is working good, so that's not the problem, nor is the cam sensor a problem. If you have spark and still no start, it likely is a fueling problem- see if fuel pump is turning on, check injector circuit-things to do with the fuel.
If you find no spark when cranking, something in the ignition system is the problem. Not necessarily the cam sensor- that sensor is for the computer to synchronize fuel injector timing with the intake valves opening. For the computer to determine spark timing and advance, it uses the crankshaft position sensor. So that sensor is more tied with the ignition system, and is often at fault when spark is lost. Other things, too, like the ignition control module, but those are things to check when troubleshooting the ignition. A repair manual should have a troubleshooting flow chart, or at least some steps or procedure when troubleshooting the ignition. Good luck.

When engine warm, turns over awhile before starts. Fine when cold. Chevy garage unable to find problem. 100,000+ miles. They replaced fuel pump 2 months ago. Still happens.


It sounds like a mass air flow sensor or coolant temp sensor or maybe a crankshaft position sensor problem ! Need to have hooked up to a oscilloscope check for a glitch in the electrical wave form !

2001 maxima wont start after changing crank and cam sensors


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

My GMC Sierra turns over but will not crank, I've put a new distributor cap on, and a coil, still will not crank. Do this truck have a computer?


yes, it has a computer and the crankshaft sensor is a possible cause, but I recommend you do some standard troubleshooting before thinking about the computer--check for spark and fuel, etc.

Replace e. g. r. valve car started drove home turn off wont start


the erg valve sensor would not stop the engine from starting,so you still have the problem you started with,lets go back to the orginal problem which was?.[car wont start]so im sorry to say its very seldom a sensor will not let an engine,i think you have another problem and a good up to date analizer should pick it up .adrian,,,,
