    the engine turns over when the key is turned but the engine wont fire as there seems to be no spark at all. It is an old car and has a mechanical fuel pump and fuel is not the problemas it can be seen in the carby when the throttle is moved, there is just no spark to the plugs.

2000 kia sephia cranks but engine wont run


The fuel pump may have died. Can you hear it turn on briefly, by turning the key to "on"? You may have to stand by the gas tank while someone turns the key to on. It should turn on for about 2 seconds and then stop, after pressurizing the fuel system. If you don't hear it, then check the fuel pump fuse. If the fuse is good, and the pump won't run, one needs to check that the fuel pump wire at the tank connector has battery voltage on it when the engine is cranking-then, you can assume the pump needs replacing.
If the pump is working and you have gas up to the engine, you would next check the ignition system. Start that by checking for spark on one of the spark plug wires.

I turned off the motor and five minutes later I wanted to start it up again. The engine turns but doesn't start. I noticed the fuel pump doesn't kick in before I tried to restart. What can the...


Bad relay. Bad fuel pump. You can go to the fuse/relay panel under the hood and swap relays with another one like the A/C relay and try it.
Then the pump may have gone. One common cause is driving with 1/4 or less tank of fuel. Fuel in the tank is very important now days as it keeps the pump thatis inside the tank cool.
Also if you turn the key and don't hear the pump, wait a few seconds before turning it again. If you turn the key off and on too fast the system does not respond that fast.

Wont start unless i use starting fluid then wont stay running


with some one turning the key and some one at the fill tube where you put gas in. With your ear close to the fill tube the other person turn the key on you should hear a loud humm. If you dont hear the humm i would probally guess on it being the fuel pump in the tank. A another way to check to see is locate the fuel rail and on the fuel rail there is going to be a tire valve stem cap unscrew that turn the key on and see if there is pressure by pushing the center and see if there is pressure . Now there is gas in the line and if there is pressure it is going to come out pretty fast so be careful.So that is the two ways to check to see if you are getting fuel to the engine.

Turn key wont start- it cranks


check plug for fuel pump in harness near gas tank for corrosion and it may also have seoerated wire where it comes out of connecter the seperation may be from pulling on wires when pump replaced insulation may look alright because it streaches.

Car wont start


THere is no gas in the fuel rail at the time gas is running out. WHen you fill the tank, it needs to pump for a while so fuel can fill up the rail then the Fuel distributor so it can build up pressure for the injectors to work properly. It need to continue cranking at least 2 minutes. However you don't want to run out the battery, so can just turn on the key to hear the sound of the fuel pump stops, then turn key off turn key on again. Repeat this for 6 times then start the engine. The reason for it is that every time the key is on it turns on the fuel pump to prime the line then turns pump off after a specific time, then it turns on again only when key is at ignition position. By doing this you help to pump gas into the fuel rail instead of the starter continue cranking draining down battery fast. Cheers.

If you turn on the key, and hear the sound of the pump for a few sec then stop before turning the key to ignition position, then fuel pump is still working. However, you need some one hear the pump running while you starting the car. The pump is located below the rear seat on passenger side. If no sound heard while you start then there is a problem with the Fuel relay switch behind the battery and firewall. If there is sound from the pump then the car needs to have fuel delivery rate checked and fuel filter for possible replacement.

1997GMC Sonoma 4x4 engine cranks but wont start


sounds like a fuel pump problem. take off gas cap and have someone sit in the truck and turn iginition key to on. (do not turn key as if you were starting but to "on only") you should hear the fuel pump engage. if you dont hear the fuel pump then check the fuel pump relay. it is located behind the glove compartment. hope this helps...

92 honda civic turns over fine but doesnt start


ok, this is a commom problem with this 92 hondas,

it may be the pump fuel relay, which is under the dash on the driver side by the fuse panel.

here is a way to determine that.

when you turn the key on the on position

do you hear the fuel pump running while the engine light is on, and does the pump stop running afteer the engine light goes off?

if you do hear the pump running then it means that fuel pump is working fine ( since it way just replaced), but if you don't hear it running while the check engine light is on ( about 2 seconds) chances are the fuel pump relay is not working as it should.


also there are clicks that have to be heard on the starting process.

1 when you turn key to on possition

2 when the check engine light goes off( a click has to be heard just after it goes off)

3 after the car starts

If you don't hear this clicks, try to get your ear close the location of the fuel pump relay( near the fuse panel under the dash).


the fuse relay is just a bunch of circuits soldered, so you can get it to someone who knows how to solder and fix it.

or just get a replacement one at any junkyard. ( cheapp)

Turn key 4x to build pressure, on 4th try complete Start seq.


is the engine actually cranking when it doesnt start or do you hear just one "click" each time you turn the key? if the engine is cranking, i would suspect a fuel problem, possibly fuel filter if it wasnt changed when the fuel pump was done. if it is not cranking and you hear one "click" upon turning the key, i would suspect faulty starter or connection problem.
