Engine turns over but won't start

Vehicle was running fine, backed out of a parking lot, put it in drive, went to go forward and it died. Hasn't run since. Engine turns over but won't start. Have replaced the fuel filter, fuel regulator, and replaced the coils.

    You will have to either buy a tester for the OBD 2 emission control system or take it to the shop

    Have you run a test for computer trouble codes?

  • Anonymous Mar 28, 2014

    Engine code P0001, I o=put in a new fuel pump, filter/ regulator, fuel relay switch. My vehicle loses power big time when I floor it to pass, starts to shake and engine light starts flashing. When in park and I rev it out it starts to lose power. At first I could only get 80kilometers out of it. If I gradually depress the gas pedal I can accelerate to 110 or better. I'm stumped

The codes will only lead the technician in the right direction to fix whatever part has failed, it won't be the fix, just wanted to make sure you understand that.

How to pinpoint and fix electrical disturbance in 1998 expedition?


Could be the ignition switch itself. Under the hood where all the wires go into the fusebox in the cab is a good pkace to start. You need to take the bolt/nut off and pull the box and wires apart. I have seen fuse blocks heavily corroded and cause problems as you are haveing. Also could be the ecm (aka)computer in your car is going bad. You can get a remanufactured one cheap. And it is simple and strait forward

1998 expedition yesturday was low on fuel got gas drove with headlights on got 4 miles down road vehicle died thought was bad gas 3hrs later vehicle would run but abs light and brake light would flash


There is a problem in the electrics of the vehicle. First place to start is to check the alternator drive belt for condition and tension. Next place is the battery terminals and condition and tension . Third place is to have a load test done on the battery as it may have an internal short and drawing all the current from the alternator. In effect when you add power requirements ( park lights then brake lights then headlights) you are actually using more current than the alternator can supply to keep the engine system running.

Won t start


run the fault codes and look for faulty cam/ crank position sensor as this is indicated by the backfire/hard start and lower idle RPM. Check that battery terminals are clean and tight..

2000 Ford Escort, engine runs fine but the car will not drive


It really sounds like one of the cv joints has failed. Even though boots are intact joint could be broke inside-just double check.

Dying 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited


I wouldn't think catalytic converter, without it giving some indication that it was going bad, but without testing it is hard to say.
When it cranks and won't start, check for battery voltage to the coil on the dark green wire, with key ON. If you have power at the coil, it might be a bad coil. If no power to the coil, it could be a Crank Position Sensor or the Cam Position Sensor inside the distributor. If one of those is bad, it can stop the computer from sending power to the coil.
Good luck.

In park the engine dies; only will run if given gas


It sounds like there is a problem with the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. Its job is to open and let air into the manifold when the throttle is closed at idle. If it does not open, the engine dies at idle. The IAC is mounted on the throttle body. Possibly the valve is clogged or stuck, in which case it could be ok again if it is removed and cleaned. Or it is broken, and needs to be replaced. Or, there is a problem with its electrical connection, that needs to be traced. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.
