To 'No Start':

If your car is not starting, and you have checked the distributor thoroughly, and all the wires, then check under the cap to see if your module (black somewhat boomerang in shape) is working or not. I have an 85, and after agonizing over what the cause was, I learned it was the module under the cap. To replace cost about $300.00.
Most Sincerely, Kristopher Gerbracht

Why preasure washer wont start


It requires Fuel, Spark and AIR. Check the Fuel and make sure it is getting into the Cylinder. Starting Fluid into the Carb will confirm Spark and this will help you Troubleshoot the problem.

I have 1985 cadillac fleetwood brougham that will not start. I replaced fuel pump and it still wont start. But if you spray starter fluid in caberator/fuel injector. It will start but one that runs out ,...


Did you change the fuel filter it maybe plugged. The fuel regulator maybe weak or not working as well. It is definitely a fuel problem. Is the engine carb or throttle body as I am not sure. If it is a carb the pump in the carb maybe weak or if it is a TBI then check and make sure the injectors are opening in key on position before start up. Hope this helps.

If fuse number 3 is a 15amp it should be for the cig lighter and I doubt it would have any effect on your no start problem.
If you have spark at the right time, fuel and compression, it should start. So something is missing or not right on the mark.
Have you tried spraying carb cleaner or starting fluid into the intake to boost the fuel supply ? Do the spark plugs look wet or dirty ?
If the coil is weak, it can fire a plug in mid-air but not under compression.

Engine has spark also appears to be fuel pressure but wont start .winds over ok partly fires but wont start .was running ok but just stopped and wont go.all fuses etc appear ok.no engine management light...


Recheck your spark and make sure you are getting spark at each cylinder. Check the fuel pressure by popping off one of the gas line and see how strong the flow is, if you have a weak flow your fuel pump isnt operating properly or you have a clogged fuel filter. Give that a try and let me know if that works if not I will take you to the next step.

Engine stalled out,would not start, pour gas in carb,cranks,keeps running,until idle falls below 12to1500rpm,than stalls out again and will not crank,repeat gas or starting fluid in carb,cranks runs and...


This truck is fuel injected, the problem sounds like a weak fuelpump, it runs when you pour gas into it until that gas runs out, the first thing is to test the fuel preasure, if the pump is weak it may run with gas poured into it but wont idle, also a common problem is the coolant temp sensor and the ground wires to thermostat housing bolt but i wont bet its the pump inside the fuel tank, if you put a fuel gauge on it there should be at least 55-61 psi if its a few pounds lower it can cause problems, you have everything else and it runs with gas poured so its a fuel problem check the preasure, theres a valve up top on the fuel line to connect a fuel gauge to it, start there hope this is helpful.

Just bought a 1984 mustang its not run for years and wont start it turns over getting gas to the carb and has fire not sure about wiring


Any time a car sits for a long period of time you should completely drain the gas tank. The gas is more then likely stale. Try pouring a little new gas into the carb or use starting fluid. If it starts you have found your problem and will more then likely have to drain and clean the tank and replace the fuel filter.
If it does not start with the new gas, it is either a compression or timing issue. If you have spark at the plugs, and GOOD fuel in the carb and it still wont start I would check the timing. If the timing is on, check compression. If the engine sat to long with no oil in the cylinders they can build up condensation and rust. Then when you try to start it with the rust in the cylinders it can destroy the rings and cause compression loss.

Check the piston rings clearance and also check the caliper may sure there is no loose compression.
