Try reseting the fuel shut off switch. It's in the back passenger side. Remove the access hole cover. Reach up in there. You will feel somthing in there. Feel for the top of the thing on there. Depress the button. It should stay down after you push it.
When you start your car. Don't press the accelerator peddle. Allow your car to start using its electronic fuel injection.

1988 jeep Cherokee Laredo won't start turns over ,has spark, gets fuel


no engine size stated, (so i toss coin, 4.0L) 5miilion strong.
the 1988 is the gawd awful French RENIX fuel injection.
i owned 2 of these pigs. (sure it runs) but sux.
why?, no CEL lamps , no flash codes, no OBD1 , no OBD ! anything.
only the very old and rare factory and dealer tools can scan this pig.
lets do this better?
in vivid details.
NO start 101: (order matters too)
  1. compression at spec, on all 6 cylinders? (old engines do die)
  2. spark at all 6 spark plugs good,? not just 1.
  3. car is tuned up. spark plugs.cap rotor, wires, and filters?
  4. the ign timing light on #1 wire, shows spark landing near TDC 0 degrees or under hood stated spec. (open hood look up )
  5. i now check for flooding, is it? spark tips , TALK to me.?
  6. yes, then check fuel pressure. next.
  7. no, then are they dry, you said wet. ('gets fuel means what"?)
  8. if flooding, i unplug the fuel pump relay and start car with test fuel if it runs for 3 seconds and stops, that is a PASS condition so but if not 1, to 7 above was skipped. lets say its flooding
  9. if flooding did you try cranking per opr guide wide open throttle? this CUTS all fuel and clears all flooding on all gas engines. and for sure all EFI. gas engines.
  10. my guess is its running now. right? if here?
  11. if not, check fuel pressure per the fsm cranking, and the MAP sensor. out put voltage key on, and cranking. and post that.
  12. good luck.

get the engine to run on test fuel first. this saves big time labor
down time, and wasted parts , guessed at)

doing a real tuneup , is not ever a waste.
a tuned up engine pays back in lower gas costs. big time.
fuel is expensive.

Engine flooding


Check the fuel pressure. The pressure regulator may have gone bad and is delivering too much pressure to the fuel rail, thereby flooding the engine.

I have a 1992 gmc jimmy s15....it will turn over and getting fuel and getting fire but will not crank. whats the problem? I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel relay, injectors,pressure regulator, dist.cap....


did you replace spark wire 1 by one,? if not bingo, you layed them down wrong.... (did car just die, by self or after a tune up?)
4.3L V6?

please stop throwing parts, you rich>? (60k tune up excepted always)
the EFI engines will not put out fuel if spark is dead.
what does getting fuel mean?
1: injectors squirt?
2: the cracked open rail plug dribbles?
what?
3;spark plug tips wet,
4: black smoke out tail. what/?
it's a no start, cranks perfect car, you keep saying no crank.
A car that can not crank and can never be started unless push started,
with a M/T STICK gear box.
ANSWER: ?
seems to me its flooding. , no>? soaking wet spark plug tips?
when EFI , floods a car , WOT cranking clears the flood.
Wide open throttle, its in you operator guide, RTM.
so if flooding, what i do us cut power to the fuel pump
the crank it dry. (black smoke out the tail, and then sputters an runs and stalls)
then, i try only test fuel. that is right,, no fuel pump power.
and make sure my engines sounds perfect with just test fuel.
if that is all true runs on test fuel,
then the problem is FUELING ONLY>
all in the span of 10mins work.

see scotty do that here.

2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara won't start engine


what engine, state engine size and country.
there can only be 3 ways, to fail.
bad engine (low compresssion, us the $20 tool at WOT and see over 170psi.
Bad spark
bad fueling.
just because spark coils (COPS?) work on other car , dont mean much.
what counts is your car , its a system.
the cops, have fast 5mS pulse when firing, you using a scope to see that?
Im so curious, why not to the time old test, use a real spark plug
attached to the COP end, spark plug shell grounded to engine metal
and crank, is spark good x4? or x6 if V6 (engine NOT STATED)
is it? then spark is good, leaving fueling.
do not touch the spark plug cranking, it can hit 100,000 volts.
I use a ground strap on the spark plug casing, hands free, or you can be hurt bad, by the spark or when you jump and cut arm backing off
on cars that flood, is it flooding?
I found my engine compression good, then found all 4 sparks fire good.
so i pull the fuel pump relay. killing fueling.
i then use "test fuel" to start engine (again, text book tests)
I use the new CRC brand of test fuel with top end oiling.
i spray it in the plenum, and it starts.
if the spark plugs are bad, (part oftune it up)
it may not start if flooded,
use WOT at the throttle (cuts fuel) and start any flooded engine.
if the spark tips are black and stink of raw fuel (wet with fuel)
that means flooding.
pull the fuel pump relay ,test fuel runs for 3 seconds. each time.
3 second spray max. each time.
if that works out, then find reason for flooding if flooding.
if not flooding, you find dry sparks.
then trouble shoot no fuel.
fuel pressure not near 30 PS?
fuel pressure too high say, 60, it will flood for ever.
there are only 3 tests.
and 4 counting wet /dry sparks.
the tests done, will put you on the correct path every time.
no guessing, no swapping parts to other cars.

Shut the explorer to put in gas tried to start it, it turns over but will not start


engine could have flooded could have leaking fuel injectors or clogged air filter.hold accelerator to floor to clear flood mode see if engine try to crank if not listen for fuel pump operation when you turn on ignition switch fuel pump should turn on for few seconds.if you dont hear fuel pump could have bad fuel pump fuse or relay.now if you ran out of fuel just getting to gas station could have damaged fuel pump.if getting fuel check for spark.could have faulty crankshaft position sensor or camshaft sensor.but have vechicle code scan first before buying new parts.

Engine died as I came to stop off hiway on off ramp, tried to start and engine would not turn over. Acted like it was flooded. left to get help and found oil cap off under hood latch area when I returned....


pumping the petal will not flood engine. Can u smell gas while trying to turn it over? can u pull a spark plug and smell fuel on it. You also do need to make sure you are getting fuel to the fuel rail first can u hear the pump come on when you turn key in the on position second with key on engine off see if fuel comes out of the port at the fuel rail careful contents under pressure.

Car died on road engine turn over but will not start


Try spraying starting fluid into the air intake, with the help of someone else starting the car. As they crank over the car, spray the starting fluid into the air intake. Do this for at least 15 seconds. If the car tries to start up the fuel pump has probably gone bad. When turning the key to the on position do you hear the fuel pump humming? If the pump is not humming the fuel pump is probably bad.

Eengine wont start has gas and spark?


Does it sound like its spinning or turning faster than normal? If so could just be flooded. Try cranking engine with excellerator 3/4 way down at 10 sec intervals with 2 min brake in between. These cars have always seemed to flood easy. And the air intake system is so enclosed it cant really dry out easy. I try that 3-4 times if it does seem like its trying to start or getting better than Id say tow to mechanic. Possible coil problems too? But seen alot of them flood out.
