My 96 volvo 850 gtl2.4L ENGINE CRANK OVER BUT WONT START I REPLACED THE INGNITION COIL \ POWER STAGE WITH NO RESULTS.PLEASE HELP


Reasons for engine turning over and not firing are simple. Spark or fuel. If you've changed the coil packs then chances are it's a fuel issue. Get in cab and turn ignition to second position whilst listening to back seat. You should hear the faint noise of the fuel pump working. If you can't, I suggest you firstly check your manual to find the fuse/relay for the fuel pump and check that. If they are fine, you need to replace fuel pump.

If you can hear it working and it still won't start, remove the fuel line going to injector rail and point into a jar whilst someone turns engine over. You should have fuel coming out. If this is fine, go back to ignition, remove a spark plug and turn engine over checking for a spark.

My bet is your fuel pump has packed-up. Good luck diagnosing.

1989 ford escort turns over but wont start


if all you did was this...and and put a new battery in and still wont start...if you have went thru your plugs..wires..distributor..ignition coil...made sure your getting spark..if not..check your relays and fuses..preferebly one that deals with spark and timing for injectors..if everything is fine to that point...then try a crankshaft position sensor...it tells the pcm timing for fuel injectors and fire to the ignition coil...hopefully this helps.

My 1993 volvo 940 has fire where should be, and gas flow where should, but still want crank can you give me solution this my problem


Ok. if you have made sure you have ignition spark at the spark plugs by turning over the engine with a spark plug wire off and held next to the block and you have also made sure your Fuel injection is pulsing and putting fuel into the engine, start from scratch.Pull out all your spark plugs,clean them off check the gap and let the cylinders dry out.The put them back,turn the key to on and make sure again that y our fuel injection is priming the system.Then spin the engine over.if you are still not getting the car to start,then you may need to check and make sure your camshaft is not broken by spinning the engine over and making sure you have spark at each plug.Try that and repost.Good luck.

My 1996 850 volvo wont start the engine turns over but wont crank


ok, turning over and cranking are the same thing, what your saying is it won't fire, so , 2 things make a motor fire, electric and fuel, so starting with the easiest remedy , remove the distributor cap, and inspect the rotor and connection points that are inside the cap, check for any debris built up , sometimes you can clean them good enough to get the car to fire up, if it does , normally you would replace them , ( not that expensive) remove the number one cylinder spark plug, and once out put the spark plug wire back on it, ( your going to need help with this step) with insulated pliers , hold the plug and place the bottom of the plug against a grounding point (any bolt on the motor will do,, but try and keep it away from the carb as its Hopefully going to spark) have someone try and turn the car over as if to start it, look for spark at the end of the plug, if you have spark,, replace the plug and try and start the car , if it won't,, move onto the fuel problem, you need to make sure that the car is getting fuel, remove the fuel line to the carb turn the key for a second, you should see fuel splashing out, if yes ,, you should be able to start the car , if no,, check the fuel filter first , then the fuel pump,

2004 gmc jimmy, tried to start fired twice didnt catch now just turns over,i can here fuel pump and smell gas.replaced ignition coil??? still wont fire


Check the ECM/BAT fuse. this fuse controls the ECM and the fuel injection circuit. If the fuse is ok, you need to check for voltage at the spark plug. Pull the #1 spark plug. If the cylinder is getting fuel the plug will be wet with gasoline. Put the spark plug wire back on the plug. Now crank the starter and look for a spark from the spark plug electrode. If you can let me know what you find from these tests, I can help you determine the next course of action.

1988 volvo 740 gle long time at garage cannot start lot of part been change e.g distributor.coil.fuel pump.filter.service air flow and devider but still cannot run the engine


hi, you need to take the spark plags out and clean them. the air filter must be taken off and pour an egg cup full of petrol into the carburetter, this is very important not to put too much as this will WET the spark plug and you will need to press the thottle full bore while turning the engine over. try this to test if fuel, spark plugs, points / electronic ignition, ignition, firing order (leads the wrong way around), mechanical parts, all other wiring correct, gerry

I have an 1989 ford Bronco II. We had the fuel pump replaced as well as the fuel lines. I started a few times but then stopped, wont start again. It turns over but wont fire. Could this be spark plugs or...


Well take a plug lead off any plug and the plug and put plug in lead and rest it on the engine with the thread resting on the metal block and then spin it over if a good blue spark then coil etc is all ok BUT if no spark then the coil could be faulty or condencer OR points need cleaning and regaping to 12thou
when all in good order start and test run .
Let me know how you get on Ron
