2000 9.5 running fine I stoped and it wont start is cranking fine wants to start but wont

First step is check fuel pressure. There should be a port on the fuel rail that you can uncap and put a gauge. (if you don't have a gauge you can push in and see if there is pressure. The fuel will squirt. Turn key on and push in like you would to remove air from a tire.) IF there is no pressure, you begin checking fuel pump. Start with fuse, if fuse is good and you find power at the connection to the pump then suspect bad pump. Most of the cars I have towed in over the years that needed a fuel pump said exactly what you said. "Ran fine, (I stopped to get gas, parked it, etc.) and when I went out the next time it would not start."

Spark is a second think, but rarely when you have a direct coil pack. Check the fuse for the coil pack.

1991 dodge dackota got no fire no gas just turns over

what about the fuel filter? its usually located under the brake booster where you put the brake fluid in its either under or around that erea somtimes the fuel filter will be clogged also check to see if its getting spark usually you can take the plug out they have a tester for this that you can buy at autozone or checkers or oriellys auto parts store and make sure your getting spark if not it could be bad distributor or cap and rotor check the cap to make sure all the points are there should be 4 or 6 make sure not broken also check the rotar for breakage or rust if its good and is getting spark possible fuel problem with the filter plugged up or possible fuel rail plugged or if you just recently tuned up maybe you have the wrong fireing order need to get a diagram of the spark plug wires if this is all good possible timing belt broke check to make sure the timing belt is good probably do this first so you dont ruin the engine if it is broke

Timing belt may have slipped. Check valve timing. If good, valves may be damaged. If bad, valves may also be damaged. Fix belt first and recheck compression. If compression still bad, remove head for repair.

1997 crown victoria is haveing a hard time starting/ stalls... rev up stalls... could it be coil packs? or fuel pump? once it is started and been running for the day it will usually start without problem.

its not likley to be coil packs or it would not start and run at all,, it could be fuel pump, or its letting the fuel run back to the tank when its been standing so when you try starting its running on whats in the carb untill the pump brings up more fuel all the way from the tank??? have a look at the fuel tank is the vent blocked???? try leaving the tank filler cap off? naughty yes! but if the vents blocked the car will run just fine after doing this,,, have a look at the fule pipes any holes in them witch would also let fuel run back to the tank and also let in air so the pump is pushing air as well as fuel and working twice as hard as it need to,,i cant think of any more right now,
hope this helps you out

We have changed the crank shaft sensor and the cam shaft sensor and plugs and cadlac convertor and fuel pump and our car still misses real bad every now and then it might straight out for few min you have...

Well, it sounds more like a timing belt issue than a coil pack. When you have gas applied and the engine running a little higher than idle RPM it seems fine because the belt is under tension and holding the timing when you back off the gas the belt gets loose and it runs like it is out of time. If it runs fine at first and starts acting up when it gets warm it could be the coil pack but I would check the timing and see if it is erradict when idling to make sure you don't have a timing belt issue. If that breaks while you are driving you will have to repair the head as well as replace the timing belt.
