My 1987 300zx cranks but wont start.

My 300zx cranks but wont start. I checked the fuel pump it works, the filter isnt clogged either. I changed the distributor cap and the ignition coil still wont start. There are 2 wires going into the ignition coil a blue one which has power and a green and white one that for some reason doesnt and should it goes alot of places and i know it has a fuse somewhere but i cant find it?

I had the same problem last year mine turned out to be a crank sensor I don't know if that is your problem for sure mine wouldn't send any spark from the coil to the spark plug replaced crank sensor inside distributor and fired right up the dealership called it a cam sensor my book called it a crank sensor either way its in the distributor

Be sure your fuel filter isnt clogged also check the fueses if both of these are ok check the crank sensor it sends information to the pcm telling it you are trying to start the engine it then sends a signal to the injectors to spray fuel but if the crank sensor is bad then the pcm doesnt know you are trying to start the engine and therefore never sends the signal to the injectors to spray fuel.

My 2000 ford contour wont start. Engine cranks, but seems no spark. I checked plugs and coil. Fuel pump kicks on and shuts off after primed. It just got harder and harder to start, finally it wont start.


Have you changed the fuel filter.

Your pump may be priming but the pressure could be against a clogged filter.

You might want to check the fuel pressur at the rail.
It might be a fuel pressure regulator problem

Bmw 1988 325is engine stops running sometimes - not lack of fuel or battery, new fuel pump. Sometimes wont start, starter motor working well, good battery. Replaced fuel pump - same deal.


The number one problem with these cars is with clogged fuel filters. They must be changed regularly. When you say it won't start, do you mean it cranks but won't fire? That could be a fuel pressure problem due to a clogged filter.

Car wont go


check the fuel filter. If it is clogged it will do just as you are saying. has enough presure to run car however when you press gas the filter isnt letting full pressure go through filter because it is clogged. If any questions email me. Good luck. Change filter.

Crank position sensor bad?
Are you sure the fuel pump is working? Might be the sending unit in the fuel pump that is bad. Clogged lines, clogged fuel injectors, clogged fuel filter, all things that could be checked.
