I have a 97 dodge stratus. It won't start. Tried

Make sure it's getting fuel. Try using some ether or starting fluid. If it rumbles to life but doesn't stay running then there's a problem with the fuel delivery system. i.e.... Fuel pump, clogged filter, pressure regulator.... If the ether doesn't change the results you are getting now then it's a fire or sensor problem. Ignition coil, relays, sensors not signaling, PCM... I wish you luck. Let us know how it turns out

1999 Buick Lesabre Custom will turn over but won't start.

sounds like it could be your crank sencer or being a 99 does it have a distributor or a coil over plug ignistion system called a DIS [distributorless ignistion system] , if it has a distributor it could be cap and rotor that you need. best bet is to get a diognostic systems check but if no codes detected then you need to check all in line fuseable links for a dead short,a fried brain box ,or a bad pron in your ecm [electronic control module ]

2000 infiniti QX4 3.3L (engine has a distributer) stalls out especially when revved from idle. Also won't start or very difficult to start, haven't been able to get it to start for a couple days...

pull one ignition cable out of cap just enough to see the tip of connector and crank it, a spark should jump from cap to tip of wire. no spark means you need the whole distributor replaced. buy it from nissan or infiniti dealer, it comes with cap rotor installed and 12 mo 12k mile warranty, no matter who installs it. dont waste time with aftermarket rebuilt distributor, those are not reliable.

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.

1995 Galant won't start

if it turn over, its not anything to do with the anti-theft system, neutral/safety switch or clutch switch. If your going to start it by pulling out the ignition switch and turning it with a screwdriver, remember that the steering wheel will lock if you try to turn. you can either drill out the tumblers from the key cylinder and turn it with a screwdriver or drill out the breakaway bolts that secure the wheel lock to the steering column.
First check for spark. if your getting spark, check the firing order.


the distributor houses a built in ignition coil and ignition power transistor. so if either goes bad you need to change the distributor. to check the coil measure the resistance between the two terminals of the distributor. it should be 0.9–1.2 ohms. then measure the resistance between the secondary ignition coil terminal on top of the distributor cap and each of the 2 pins. 20–29K ohms.f53ce6e.jpg
