You need to test the crank sensor if you are gettting a good signal from sensor the problem is probably the ignition module

Installed new fuel pump new filter I have spark I have gas but it still won't start

Hi Kevin:
Old Dude Wisdom:
- Spark at the plug - pull some plug(s), reconnect the lead, and check for spark at the electrode. Hot and Blue
- Fuel in the jug - Fuel injection or carb?
If plugs are wet, fuel but no spark
If plugs are dry, no fuel.

92 ciera wants to start but it sounds like it isn't getting any fuel

Hi Bradley:
Your engine needs 2 things:
1) Spark at the plugs
2) Fuel in the jugs

First thing I'd do would be to confirm that there is a hot blue spark at the tip (electrode) of the plugs.
Then I'd look for a fuel delivery problem.

Considering the age of the vehicle, if it had been running fine and then just stopped, and you have spark, I'd be suspicious of a bad fuel pump.

Car turns over but wont start

run the fault codes and fix the faulty sensor. use a code reader to reset the CPU from the battery change over.. Get a better mechanic because he should have known that if the engine cranks then the battery is good ( bought a battery for nothing) and the problem is else where ---like the immobiliser ---or key battery---- or cam/crank position sensor

1990 honda accord wont fire

Do you have spark, do you have fuel pressure? it is one of these or a camshaft timing problem. I would start with checking the spark at the plugs 1st.

My Mitsubushi Space Star Car won't Start. What can I try?

spark plugs are deep in the head yet you should get all the the old fuel out first, stale fuel wont ignite and will also clogg fuel filter. you need a mix of atleast 70% new fuel even then its not good for the injecters. If its a manual gearbox a tow start is a quick fix although no go for auto's. cant be much wrong if car was fine when parked, plugs-fuel-filter and possibly fuel pump for sure. If that doesnt fix take plug out put in lead and crank engine to be sure you have spark even just put any plug you know works in lead leaving your plugs in engine just to check for spark y turning over engine looking for spark on plug good spark will be blue but any spark is good.

Car was starting and running now and then battery is fine it getting gas has orange spark on plugs bt wont start?

The spark at the plugs should be almost white hot or blue. An orange spark is very weak and may not be enough to ignite the fuel mixture when subjected to the pressures inside the compression chamber. It would not hurt to do a thorough tune up with new spark plugs, wires and ignition control module. If your engine has a distributor, replace the cap and rotor.

Wont start.

If it will turn over check to see if its fuel or fire. To check for fuel, spray quick start for a few seconds into intake. If it starts and stops. its fuel. Change fuel filter and check fuel pump. If it does not start its fire, Could be distributor cap, rotor, coil, spark plug wires or spark plugs. If it does not turn over it could be battery or starter. Check battrey connections, ground strap from motor to body and ground wire from battery to motor and body.

Chk fuse box and see if there is a fuse for the fuel injectors. Sounds like the injectors are not spraying gas into cylnders.

Car wont start

If you are getting spark to the plugs, (and assuming nothing has happened to screw up the timing of the spark), the only thing that would cause the car not to start is that you are not getting fuel into the cylinders. You can check this by squirting some ether into the air intake of the engine. You can get some start spray at an auto parts store.
