This sounds like a timing problem, try turning your distributor a little bit and the other thing to try is adjusting your ful mixture, but I would adjust the timing ( distibutor ) first.
Good luck and I hope that you take the time to rate this site.

Engine will not start


I hope you aren't using starting fluid on a petrol engine! You risk a backfire and an explosion of the vapour. Tell us what you have done in each step to arrive at where you are. Give all details of engine/vehicle etc.

My 97 bmw28is wont start everyting was working fine.batterry is full ibut cae r wont start


wont crank?
or cranks robustly (the crankshaft spins fast) but wont start.
all cars that dont start one, all ran when new. etc.
what counts is the now. only.
you need to do the tests. all covered in the FSM or at alldata.com
i cant help you because you . cuz did not say crank or start? so......

1: test all fuses. (not just gandering, use a meter)
2: check battery voltage 12.6vdc rested.
3: if not cranking, wiggle the shilter (a/t) or clutch if m/T
if a/t? try cranking in Neutral. cranks now? bingo.
4: cranks ok, and fast so check spark/

ill end there, due to vast number of tests and no clear stated
symptoms.
ever give it a full tuneup (60,000 mile service schedule?) or this DECADE. if not why ask the spark plug question.

2000 318 ram van wont start new ecm sensors got spark gas


If you are getting spark to the plugs and fuel spray, and you have compression and the spark is at the right time, you should have explosion.
Is it possible the valve timing is off - timing chain issues ?
Are the new plugs fuel-fouled ?

Just R&R a motor in a 2002 pontiac grand prix GTP-Supercharged. started up after a few cranks and a shot of ether. But idles very high and when we test drove it shifted fine on the first run but wont...


To fix the high idle, replace the top oxygen sensor. I would drop the transmission pan and change the transmission filter. You can then check the old fluid for contamination and metal filings. Metal filings will clog the transmission filter and lead to low pressure that would cause delayed shifts

Car wont crank 1994 plymouth acclaim


Not sure what yor experiencing . Do you have crank no start or no crank no start? No crank no start is battery and cables issue. Crank no start is ignition , plugs, and fuel.

Won't start or crank after wreck.


this is probably a safety. no explosion, shut down. check to make sure no wires were cut/damaged and look in the trunk for an emergency shut off. there might also be a shut down relay onboard. if there is it's under the hood in the relay box.
