    Cranking but no start. Replaced fuel filter, ignition coil to and I do get a good spark at the #2 plug, but no start. Some people are saying replace the mass airflow, others are saying fuel pressure regulator...I have a working pump ( I can hear it), also I am getting fuel up the lines- the needle valve in rear of the motor shoots gas with key turned "on"...I suspect I have dirty injectors. Advice?

I had this problem with my 97 Jimmy. It is your ignition switch. The switch that touches the tumbler gets wore down. You'll have to tear the steering column apart to get to it and you will need a really small torx driver (not sure what size). Good Luck.

What could keep my coil from firing ? I have the Ignition control signal and 12v. while cranking over engine at the top primary wiring of coil. Can you help me get spark?


Sounds like the security system is causing your problem. Is the "security" light flashing? If it is, turn the key on, leave the key in the ON position for 10 minutes. The light will stop flashing. Now, turn OFF the key, turn it back to ON, and then crank it. It should start. If the security light starts flashing again, go through the process again until it starts. This is resetting the security system after the battery has died, battery has been changed, radio was changed, instrument cluster was removed and replaced, etc. Hope this works for you.

if its got no fire and you changed your cam and crank sensor try replacing the ignition Coil then if it doesn't work replace the distributor cap and spark plugs and wires if that doesn't work then take the distributor cap off and replace the distributor Rotor if it still doesn't work replace the wires to the rotor if still i dosent work check your fuses but i assure you that should fix it.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

I would be thinking that there is a good chance that you need to be checking out replacing the computer, if you aren't getting any communication with the proper scan tool then the computer isn't communicating with anything in the vehicle...... I would have guessed first off that the ignition control module might be bad but that is obviously part of the computer also, I would be looking in that direction.

95 dodge caravan with no start problem.


Connect a timing light to the number one plug wire and crank the engine. Does the light flash indicating that the Number one is firing? Look at the distributor. If you have a distributor cap and rotor assembly remove the distributor cap and crank the engine. If the rotor turns check the rotor to make sure there is a good contact point and check the distributor cap to ensure there are good contacts. If either is damaged or worn replace them both. If the rotor does not turn you have a broken timing belt or one of the timing belt/chain guides has jammed and the engine needs to be rebuilt.

Car won't start. It died on me on my way to work. Just started to load up, drop rpms and then died. I towed it home and have been trying to diagnose it all morning. the check engine light has been on...


the igniter... if you have no spark 9/10 times it's the problem take Distributor cover off.. turn the crank until you can take the small screw off the rotor.. take the rotor off. and you should be able to see the igniter.. its a small box looking think with 2 or 3 phillips screws going to it with wires.. if there is a burn mark on it.. like it's got hot... it's bad i've replaced hundreds of those for the same problem. but while your in there make sure the rotor and cap is good too..

Car cranks but won't start. Diagnostic code says


I changed all the parts I mentioned and finally I decided to try the crank shaft sensor and if that didn't work I was going to replace the cam shaft sensor. Luckily the crank shaft sensor worked but only after I replaced all the other parts. But at least now it finally started.

Thsank you.

2001 chrysler voyager no spark wont start


. Make sure that the distributor rotor is moving when it cranks. check the cap and rotor for cranks. If all is well then change your module inside your distributor.
