Question about 1999 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Car will not start

Wife was driving car and it cut off on her! It tries to start but won't turn over. I tested to see if the spark plugs were getting a spark and they weren't. I replaced all plugs, wires, distributer cap, ignition switch, rotor, and ignition distributer. I am still not getting a spark from the plugs. PLEASE HELP!! 95,000 miles timing belt changed a year ago.

All the things you replaced were a great place to start. I would suspect the ignition coil. approx. 119.00 for OEM a lot less at the parts store.

    Well my final thought would be the crank or cam position sensor either will cause the identical complaint. I hope this helps

My car cranks but does not start

The starter system will not affect the engine starting. Only cranking.
Someone would need to figure out if you are missing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors to proceed.

1995 ford contour cranks but won't start, change fuel filter, fuel pump, and spark plugs. Not getting any spark.

Have you ever heard of testing before replacing parts ? Fuel pressure an flow tesing , testing the electrical circuit for the fuel pump , amp draw testing , voltage drop testing etc... Thier are no magical fixes in auto repair . No spark ! check B+ voltage an ground circuits for the ignition system , Ignition System Designs Operation and Testing an SD Premium video

As for it cutting off i would take the mass air flow sensor off and clean it with a non-chlronated brake cleaner then let dry for 15 minutes and re-install.As for engine not cranking overmost likely its the starter solenoid that is bad.

I was driving and the car cut off. It won't start but it cranks and won't turn over.It is a 1995 Olds Cutlass Ciera SL, 6 Cylinder.

your terminology is wrong.if it cranks its turning over what you mean is it won`t start(fire up) as you said at the beginning.anyways it sounds like you could have a fuel pump problem that stop working.this happens should check for spark at the plugs to make sure its not an ignition problem.did you notice a check engine light on when it was running.if so there will be a code in the ecm and may be the cause of your problem.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

The car starts and run but some when you cut it off it won`t start back for 30 min or more. It turns over but will not catch, as if it is straving for fuel.

You have to determine if it is fuel delivery problem, or a lack of spark problem.
To determine fuel delivery, after it cuts off on you and won't start, spray starting fluid into the intake as someone else cranks it over. You have to remove the top of the filter housing and filter to access a spot to spray.
If it starts on that, then you know fuel delivery is the issue.
If not, then move on to the spark test.
To do this, you will need an extra spark plug, don't pull the one out of the engine, get a new one and pull off the spark plug wire from your #1 cylinder (far left)
Put the top of the spark plug into the wire boot, and ground the threads on the other end to chassis.
have a second person crank over the motor. Do you see a spark? It should be brilliant blue, and snap audibly. If it is yellow or orange, then you have to check all the other cylinders one by one.
Let me know the results of your testing and I will be glad to guide you on what to do next to further narrow this down, and eventually get you back on the road, confident that your car will start up every time you turn the key.

Test at the spark plug if you are getting current there with a cheap spark plug tester, if not, it could be the spark box. ( it used to be an ignition coil on older cars ) double check the computer for codes which may lead to a cam sensor not giving the PCM information.
