Trying to jump start but will not start, it took a jump one time
THE ENGINE IS TRYING TO TURMOVER BUT NOTHING HAPPENS CAN THE FUEL PUMP BE SHOT SEEMS LIKE THE CAR WANTS TO TURN OVER, BUT NOTHING IS HAPPENING. CAN YOU GIVE ME SOME CLUES DO THESE CARS HAVE ELECTRONIC EGNITION, THIS IS MY DAUGHTERS CAR, SO RIGHT NOW I AM ALITTLE CONFUSEDD ON WHY IT WON'T START

take a rubber or cowhide hammer and rap the bottom of the tank several times and then turn the key forward and listen for the fuel pump sound. If rapping on the tank allows the pump to run then the pump itself is going bad so change the pump if that is so.
If the Starter isn't turning the engine over, but you hear a clicking sound, you may have a bad Starter. If the Starter is turning the engine over, but you are getting no Spark, you may have a failed Camshaft or Crankshaft Position Sensor, or your Timing Belt may have jumped or broken(common on the neons). If the Starter is turning the engine over, but you are getting Spark, you may have a failed fuel pump, fuel pump relay, or fuel pressure regulator.
Before you start replacing sensor, double check the Timing belt to ensure it hasn't broken or jumped, and check to see if you are getting a spark or not.
There are several causes that might lead to such a problem.
A dead fuel pump (could be the pump, pump relay or wiring circuit);A plugged fuel filter;Low fuel pressure (weak pump or restricted line); or No pulse signal to injectors (bad injector relay or PCM driver circuit).
One of the first things to check is the fuel pump. Then you carry out these tests,
Run a test on this components and you should be able to detect where the problem is from. Static Fuel Pressure Test, Residual Fuel Pressure Test, Running Fuel Pressure Test, Dead Head Pressure, Fuel Volume Test, Fuel Pressure Regulator Test, Fuel Pressure Drop Test, Scope Tests. After carrying out these tests, you will be able to tell what component is faulty and how to solve the problem. Take care and good luck
Fuel Filter-clogged. Fuel Pump binding mechaniclly or low volume. Are you sure you have no stored codes and do you really know from a very technical description what diagnostic work was done by your guy? Is it under warranty, I assume not ,if you r Dealer wasn't involved
If your sure its a fueling issue I would go to the wires that go to the fuel pump and check for power and ground. When the key is turned on the pump will run for about three seconds if you do not start the engine. If nothing happens then try cranking the engine and see if you have power. If you have power you will need a fuel pump. The pump is most likely in the fuel tank as is the filter. If you do not have power at the wires the you have a blown fuse of broken wire somewhere. Be aware the fuel pump is computer controlled and if the crank sensor is bad the fuel pump will not turn on. Easiest way to check for a bad crank sensor is crank the engine and check for a RPM signal. If you have a RPM gauge on the dash most of the time you cannot crank fast enough to get it ti move. Checking the RPM may need a timing light. Also a timing light will blink if the crank sensor is ok. If you have no RPM signal you most likely dont have fuel or spark., Easiest way to check for if you only have a fueling issue is spray a little brake clean into the throttle body. If it starts and stays running while adding very little spray of brake clean then you know its just a fuel issue. Also if the timing belt has stretched or jumped teeth this would cause a no start.
My 92 Bird with the 3.1 did the same thing after it sat for about 2 months. The car had aways started right away before. I had to jump start it and I thought it would never start.Same as yours after it started. Seem to get better after I ran it awhile. It was getting good spark and was getting fuel. I checked fuel pressure, it seemed to be within specs.then it started to sputter and the pressure dropped to almost nothing. Seems that the fuel pump was going bad, but still would pump enough fuel at times to run. When the car was parked the fuel pressure would bleed off, and when I tried to start it the pump had trouble pumping enough fuel to pressure the system.Long story short! Replace the fuel pump, and filter.....
see if the fuel pump primes the car when u put the key forward listen towards the gas tank do you hear a buzzing sound? if not u need to replace the fuel pump.. replacing the spark plugs on the motor is not fun at all i bet u guys had a real good time doing that haha..
