SOURCE: What coul be keeping my 1986 honda civic from

It cranks really good sputters a little and makes some loud pops but it will not turn over? FYI:Cranking and turning over are the same thing. When was the last time it ran. The gas could be bad. Did you get new plug wires as well. Try testing the distributor, remove a spark plug, plug it back into the wire, and touch the threads to ground and crank the engine. It should spark. Keep your fingers away, that's high voltage. Remove all spark plugs, spray some starting fluid in each cylinder, then crank the engine with the plugs out. This will clean any debris from the cylinders. Engines need backpressure to run properly, a major exhaust leak hence the popping, could cause it to not run. If you can get it started try to keep it going, full throttle, keep in the starting fluid, it could just need to get warm. I used to have one of them and they don't like it when they're cold.

My 98 4runner won't start it just clicks

The most common reasons are a faulty starter, starter relay, battery, or cable.
Someone would need to check to see if you have battery voltage at the starter when the key switch is in the start position.

Engine wont start sometimes

Probably the starter.
You would check for voltage at the starter with the key in the crank position. There is a neutral safety switch in that circuit that could fail, but it usually does not come and go. And you could crank it in neutral most times it the switch failed in park.

I have a 91 Toyota pickup 4x4 and the engine died while driving at normal speed

As with any no start condition, you will need to figure out if you are dealing with a fuel problem or spark problem. If the engine is cranking normally we will assume the timing belt is ok.
You can check for spark at the plugs, and try spraying carb cleaner into the intake hose.
Also check the computer for trouble codes and the fuel pressure at the injectors.

I have a 1984 f150 with a 302 it turns over but it cranks and cranks then starts. Almost to the point the batt. is dead or you spray starting fluid in carb after running for a while you go to start it...

sounds like you need to bump the timming just a hair. loosen the distributor bolt and turn the whole shaft to the left if that doesnt work go the other way

Toyota 4runner wil not start

Check the Spark plugs, starter, or the battery wires. It depends on if it is trying to turn over or if its not doing anything at all. If its trying to turn over then its most likely your starter or spark plugs or could simply be its getting too much air due to a leak. If Its not doing anything at all no clicking nothing then its probably a problem with the battery wires. If its just making a clicking noise then its yoru starter.
