Here are two possible options, One you should check on the flywheel and make sure there is a tiny block of metal alongthe rim of it generally on the top but it does move, this is the Crank Sensor Pin and if it doesnt have that then theres no way its going to start, Second, you might need to replace the Speed reference sensor, Its the grey sensor on top of the block, because those combined with the crank pin wont let it start, another one you might want to check even though you say it cranks, is check the Ignition coil

If you have any questions email me, and I can try to help (Had these same problems with more.) The.Squall1@gmail.com

2003 chevy silverado 5.3 will crank but not start and has no power to the pcm1 fuse


What make vehicle ? You need to find a power distribution chart an see where that fuse gets it power . Some vehicles have a relay that powers up the vehicle . ford has power hold relay , gm on some models has a run / crank relay , Chrysler has ASD - auto shut down relay , Asian vehicles have a main relay etc... But as long as there is no power to the PCM it's not going to start !

05 c240 turns over won't start


most likely you have a bad crank sensor or fuel problem you need to check fuel pressure ,if you have enough pressure ,most likely you need crank position sensor,if you don`t have fuel pressure ,it might be your fuel pump relay or the pump, i would start with the relay first very unexpensive. you can also hear the pump if it`s working by cranking the engine and listening rear of the car for a humming sound .
good luck

1995 CRYSLER LHS,WONT START AT ALL,TRIED CHANGING SENSORS,FEUL PUMP,COIL PACKS AND COMPUTER BOXES,JUST WONT START?ANY IDEA?


If it is cranking with out turning over I would check the fuel pump and ignition relay, crank and cam sensors.
Basically you need to figure out if you have a spark issue or a fuel issue. (as long as you didn't have a serious overheating problem). One way to help you figure this out is by spraying in some starting fluid while cranking the engine. If it starts you have a fuel problem, if nothing then you have a spark problem (assuming you didn't blow the head gasket from overheating and was running normally before this happened).
Based on what you've already done here are my recommendations:
No spark: check ignition relay
No fuel: check fuel pump relay (aka shutoff relay, aka fuel pump shutoff relay), crank and cam position sensors, fuel filter.
There is also one other possibility, that the timing belt snapped. You would need to remove the timing cover to check this.

93 honda del sol will turn over but wont start. It has a new time belt, distrib, and the main relay works.


Is it not getting spark or gas? It needs both to run. Both main source. If no spark in any cylinder, then ignition module or crank sensor is likely faulty. If no gas, then fuel pressure regulator or fuel pump or fuel pump relay is bad.

Got s,reg nissan mirca turns over but wont start never had prob before any ideas what might be wrong batt fine ,spark good


fuel pump, fuel pump relay or fuse, or crank sensor.

the crank sensor is located near or behind the main bottom pulley on the front of the engine. it is a very likely problem and is usually an easy replacement, but the fuel pump and its fuse & relay could be the next most likely problem.

I have a 1991 740 volvo, was driving down he street and it died,after i pulled over it wouldn't start


Check if you still getting fuel and sparks, two items need to keep the car running. Check fuses and fuel pump relay, if needing new relays go to the junk yard and get couple of them for nothing. Checking making sure you getting fuel and fuel pump working properly, unplug the the main coil wire to distributor so the car wont start we just want the engine just to turn over. under the hood, locate fuel filter, disconnect the line to or from it, wrap the bottom of the hose with old clothe firmly and to remember to point the house downward away from your face so it wont splash at you. and have a friend turn ignition over just like starting, see if the fuel come out with good pressure. if fuses and relay check out, your crank sensor may be bad, being 91' strong possibility. crank sensor send info to computer telling to send fuel to your injectors. For sparks, make sure you plug the main wire to distributor back. pull one plug wire and get spare plug, plug it and ground the plug and have a friend turn the engine over and see if you getting sparks, do not touch the plug, big shock. No sparks, check the coil if you getting 12v, if yes, than your cam sensor is faulty. The cam sensor work just like the crank sensor but telling the computer to send sparks to the distributor. Common for older European cars, crank and cam sensor tend to become faulty after years of service due to age and heat abuse.

you may have bent the flex plate ring.so it might be to far away from the crank sensor air gap.
