    hayward change your ignition coil under your cap that should solve your problem. David is your battery dead or does it crank? you may not be getting power to your fuel injectors. If thats the case check your fuses if they are good you need a cpu.

I had the same problem with mine. I have a 91 trans am, and My problem was a temp sensor on the motor. I put a new one on, and it fired right up. Hopefully that helps you out a bit.

91 firebird new battery just wont start


I agree, more information would be helpful and engine size too. Also, why did you replace the battery and what was it doing or not doing just prior to the battery change?

Hi there
Yes could be but also try getting a compression test on the cylinders as it could be a problem with engine lacking comp when hot so then wont get fuel and air mix correctly.

Problem with 91 Camaro RS


You have spend a lot of money on parts, have you invested in a Compression Tester or I believe you have Blown your Head Gasket, Cracked your Head. You are now getting Blow By and it is going into your System.

YOUR problem with your Raw Fuel getting into your Exhaust is due to the LAck of compression to Ignite the fuel.

It could also be a Bent or Swallowed Valve.

A Cylinder Leak Down Test will help you resolve this issue.

Good Luck

My 1994 Camry cranks but wont fully start


As you are finding out ....this is how you kill a car. You need fuel, spark, compression, and air to run an engine. Look for spark and fuel items to be working. A computer controls much of the spark part. They canbe sensitve electrically. If you are cranking ..starter sounds ok. Alt. will act up after you get started. concentrate on spark and spark control. Fuel and fuel control. This is what you need to start.

2001 ford taurus wont start


It could be bad plugs, plug wires, a bad ground will do this as well. Check to see if it has the three main things.

Spark
Air
Fuel

Anther common problem is the crank shaft speed sensor. It will cause it to not spark and not start.

1989 Firebird won't start unless gasoline is sprayed in throttle.


your electronic fuel injectors should have a similar connector as another make sure you didn't connect the wrong piece to you electronic fuel injection wires, the connection should be a 2 hole plug and should run from the coil to the intake

Car wont start


If you are getting spark to the plugs, (and assuming nothing has happened to screw up the timing of the spark), the only thing that would cause the car not to start is that you are not getting fuel into the cylinders. You can check this by squirting some ether into the air intake of the engine. You can get some start spray at an auto parts store.
