Engine is not fireing-up

I was having problem with the starter. I changed it, but when I tried to fire up the engine the engine does not fired. Seems like the alarm is not allowing electricity to go to the spark plugs. All fuses are good.

If you have a car alarm, it may have a starter kill feature that diables the starter. First you'll have to disable the alarm, then check and try starting the vehicle. You can always turn the alarm back on when your finished.

Why does it start, then starter disengages?

about the starter it sounds like the starter bendix is worn so I belive you should change the starter and it should work like it should, and since you changed the computer, you needs to do a relearn set-up

I have a 1989 Ford f150 xlt lariat 5.0L 4x4 can't figure out if it is high output usually it's stamped HO on motor but may have been changed seems to fire better with the high output firing order

Post the eight digit of your VIN NUMBER. Both E and T are listed for a Mustang GT HO 302, although the trucks may be coded differently .

Truck fires really well but wont start, seems like no fuel

Please define "fire power". Is this just the power from the battery swinging the engine, or did you check if there is a healthy spark on the plug wires? If an engine dies without warning, the chances are very good it is the crank angle sensor in which case there will not be any spark on the wires even though the starter will swing the engine quite lustily without starting.

Hi my 1995 200i Toyota Camry keeps stalling whilst driving and does not fire I have changed the petrol filter bypassed the factory fitted alarm and anti hichacking and still the problem is persisting after...

The proper Air to Fuel ratio must be attained. When too advanced or retarded, you will get a rough engine and either lots of smoke or back carbon output. This requires TEST EQUIPMEMT to balance the engine performance, thus if you do not have equipment, it needs to go to the service station.

04 Kia Serento 4X2. Won't start on a regular basis. Changed the starter but the problem still exists. Battery seems fine the car just won't "fire up"

If it turns over just fine and won't start "crank no fire" first spray some starter fluid into the throttle body, if no change in the situation then you know that fuel isn't the issue. Next take a spark plug out, replug it into the wire without putting it back into the engine, set it on the intake manifold have someone turn the engine over and look for a steady spark. "Do not hold it while it is being turned over." if you get steady spark then you know it is not the ignition system. repost findings and we'll get you fixed from there. I will respond within 24 hours of your response. I hope this helps.

Engine will not fire after battery died

Take the battery that is dead completely out and replace it with a good one and see if that resolves the problem.

I have changed the engine and there is no fire. Tried changed the distributor and the crank engine sensor but still no fire The starter is turning the engine over but when i take a look at the spark plugs...

I have heard of these horror stories about cutting the wires on the ecu and splicing them back together to get the new engine running. We just did a motor and thought we were going to have to do that but the thing fired right up and ran perfect. We couldn't believe it. Anyway, I would try the ignitor, check the fuses, check the oil? Check the immobilizer? How about the ?? There has to be something you are overlooking. Did you get a new ecu with the new motor? Is everything hooked back up? No wires left disconnected? Hope this helps.

yep definately sounds like the immoboliser, are you using the remote to disengage it? if not there should be a cut off switch for the system, try disengage it and check to see if it fixes the propblem.

De-activate immobilizer of 98 Toyota Corolla

Simple thing to do is have your coils checked.. You should have spark if they are good.. If you still dont then disconnect battery at least 20 - 25 mins see if it resets ecm and alarm. May begin to work properly again..
