Car wont start if driven a distance and turned off, have to open hood to cool it acura 98 tl 2.5

hot soak failures, (im good at those, my specialty (electronics)
1: lost spark that first thing to do failed is check for spark.
if spark bad,? 1998 ( ill post for NOT FLOODING and tuned up,)
do this and the ECU will tell you why !!!
1: connect any scan tool to the 16pin DLC port. next to knees
2: crank for 5seconds.
3: release key, do not turn of key
see those DTC errors. that IS the cause.
p0340 ,355? or any codes, they will tell you if
CMP fails, CKP failed, or just spark.

the ecu makes spark, so if CMP/CMP fails, it sees that fast.
if CMP/CKP are bad, it will throw bad spark codes. for bad coil.

92 toyota 4X4, 4 cyl. Turns over, getting fire, wont crank, even sprayed either in the efi still nothing. Im thinkin - jumped time, how can i tell for sure, b4 i take the front of engine off. Please...

Set the crank at the zero degrees point on the pointer scale. look at rotor under the dist. cap. (If on number 4 plug tower, turn crank one revolution and back to zero degrees.) If timing has not jumped, rotor will be directly pointing to number one spark plug tower.

Car will not turn over and not getting any spark

When you say that it wont turn over, that means you turn the key and nothing happens. IS that really the case?

It was sputtering from time to time... Had to give it a little gas this morning to get it to turn over... Came back from work...wont start cranking fine... just wont turn over 91 lebaron

well first off you want to make sure your getting fuel and if you are getting fuel then check the pressure to make sure it is were it should be you can rent them from autozone for free it got a deposit but you get it back when you return it . if fuel is good check your spark pull out spark plug have someone try to start car look at the plug if you have bright blue spark in all your plugs spark is fine if orangeish color spark change ignition rotor and distibutor cap and wires you might as well do it all if spark and gas are both good

check crankshaft postion sensor as hard starts and on most cars if there bad they wont start also check camshaft position sensor they both tell your cars pc when to fire spark and to what cylinder to fire it to

Car wont start

being 94' im sure it has high miles, cam and crank sensor common to fail over time do to wear and heat exposure. check the basic, make sure you getting fuel and sparks. fuel pump only work as long the engine is turning over due to the crank sensor sense the flywheel turning. crank sensor may be faulty. no sparks, check coil make sure is good and putting out 12v, auto zone can test it for free. good coil, than check cam sensor, cam sensor senses the cam turning and tell the ecu to tell the coil to disperse the sparks to the plugs. cam and crank sensors, there no way of testing it but replacing the unit unless you have the special equipment to test it; both is fairly cheap to replace, check ebay.

1999 ford Explorer 4.0 v6 4x4 will cranck but not start has spark

Honestly it's probably just dirty spark plugs. Did you pull any of the spark plugs and inspect the tips for build up? A couple things to remember:

1.) If the timing chain broke, the valves wouldn't be opening so you wouldn't have any air coming out of the exhaust during crank. You said it smells like you're getting fuel, so I'm assuming that means you're smelling the exhaust fumes, right?

2.) The crank sensor tells the ignition system when to send a spark to the plugs. If you're getting good spark, it's unlikely that the crank sensor is faulty.

If it's too soon for spark plugs to need replacing, check your sensors. A faulty oxygen sensor for example could cause your engine to run 'rich', resulting in faster crud build up on spark plug tips.

It could be the crank sensor, if it cannot see it it will diable the coils and fuel, try turning over the engine taking out the plugs if they are wet then it is your crank sensor.
