I had this issue, and racked my brain trying to figure it out. Replace spark plugs but most of all replace rotor in distributor. The leads do get worn.
Aside from that you can also assure that there is gas getting to the carb. But the rotor was the primary issue with me.

My 2000 f 250 super duty want start, I changed both batteries, Cam sensor, Solenoid And it still want start


Won't start ? does the engine crank ? , meaning when you turn the key to the start position does the starter do anything ! A crank -no start VS a no crank - no start ! What engine does it have ? gas or diesel ? Does the check engine light come on when you turn the key to on ? Does the anti-theft light in the middle top of instrument panel flash fast when trying to start the vehicle ? PATS - passive anti-theft system problem !

My s10 when turn key on it makes couple clicking sounds then everything goes dead. Tried few times an wont start what may be the problem


The "clicking" is usually the starter solenoid chattering. This can be caused by:
  1. Bad Starter Solenoid
  2. Bad Starter
  3. Weak battery not supplying enough current to engage starter.
Turn on the interior dome light. When you crank the engine, if the light dims slightly, the battery is probably OK. If it goes out, or blinks at the rate of the clicking noises, have the battery tested.

Auto shut down relay chatters -no power to fuel pump. Replaced relay -still have same problem on 1993 Wrangler


If the check engine light does NOT come on when cranking, at the times when it won't start, and the relays are clicking and buzzing, then your ECU is in need of repair. The engine will only start after the check engine light comes on and the ecu is what controls that. ECU is likely going bad, causing the delayed start problem typical of early 90's jeeps. Reasonably priced repair or replacement services for your jeep ECU are available on ebay.

I was trying to start my car tonight, and it woouldnt turn over. I have all my lights so I know that it is not the alternator or the battery, could it be my starter?


Could be low battery. Did you hear a chattering sound when you tried to start it? Normal battery voltage fully charged is actually over 13 volts. Try to jump start it. If you don't get a response out of it, then check your fuses. Check engine bay fuses (under the hood) and interior fuses (inside the car-drivers side) Also could be starting relay. have a second person turn the key and you listen for a relay under the hood. If the IGN relay does not pull in, hten you either have a bad fuse, or bad relay or bad ignition keyswitch or bad transmission neutral position switch. if relay pulls in and then chatters, it does not have enough voltage to stay pulled in and attempt to run the starter motor at the same time, which is why it will make that fast clicky-clicky noise. if it does pull in and nothing happens then your starter is either bad or not connected electrically.

Won't start worked this morning now won't start... lights and everything work....tried to jump start nothing...


When you turn the engine over, do the lights dim significantly? Does the engine turn over or do you just get a clicking? Despite the lights working this could still be a bad battery. Starting a car draws a lot of current and if the battery is bad then this situation can arise. Jumping might also not work in this case. If the engine turns over then its something else. Check the coil/plugs for a spark and check for fuel.

Try having one person turn the key to the start position and hold it there, while someone else taps on the starter with a hammer. If tapping on it makes it work, you need a starter. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Service Engine Soon Light comes on but doesn not stay on.


If your battery starts turns the engine over, it is doing it's job well. It sounds like your engine computer is not liking the cold engine. If it has been a while since a tune up, it would not hurt to go ahead and do it, but if it runs ok after it warms up, I sould not worry about it a whole lot. When the engine is cold, the egr valve and other things that are made to limit polution tend to stick and give the computer bad readings. A serious tune up may fix it, and I think should, but you MAY still be in the same boat! That does not FIX it for you, but should ease your mind on the light.
