I would start with checking the battery, belts and fuses. Some places like Autozone will check the battery under a load for free. If all that checks out, then move on to fuel and spark. That will give you a good indicator of where to go from there. If you have no spark then you are moving on to your coil, distributor, etc. If you have no fuel then you would check your filter, injectors pump etc. Keep in mind that a broken timing chain/belt will cause a no start condition as well, as will a faulty neutral safety switch, so if nothing else seems to add up you might check those as well. good luck

Loss of power


do you mean you replaced the spark plugs and wires or the fuel pump plugs have power but not as much? if you meant spark plugs then did you replace the fuel filter that is the major cause of fuel pump failure if you did replace the filter then did you use correct plugs and did you gap the plugsalso check the firing order of the plug wires again make sure that they are right in order.if all is good you have forced some dirt past the filter before it went bad and the injectors may be plugging up i would then use a bottle of techron fuel injector cleaner see if that helps

You've already eliminated the spark plug & wireset, distributor cap & rotor.
Sounds like your car needs a tune-up, specifically, the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve, and/of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.

Components checked/replaced during a tune-up are:
air filter
motor oil
motor oil filter
breather filter
fuel filter(s)
fuel strainer
PCV valve
EGR valve
spark plugs
spark plug wires
ECM or distributor cap & rotor
cabin air filter
transmission oil filter
transmission oil
engine coolant
check all vacuum hoses and lines

My mitsubishi eclipse 95 gs wont start and theres no light on my dash bored it will cranck but wont start at all i need help asap


Since the engine cranks, the battery, starter motor/starter motor solenoid are most likely
good, so suspect everything else on the list. When you narrow it down, re-post with a
more specific question about that particular component, since 100s of components must operate
nearly perfectly for a vehicle to actually start.

Priority Action Part Type -- Cause
1 Inspect Battery -- Battery Discharged or Faulty.
2 Inspect Battery Cable -- Corroded, Broken, Shorted or Poorly Connected Battery Cable.
3 Inspect Battery Cable Connector -- Broken/Corroded/Loose.
4 Inspect Fuel Filter -- Clogged or Dirty Fuel Filter.
5 Inspect Ignition Coil -- Faulty Ignition Coil.
6 Inspect Wireset (aka Spark Plug Wires) -- Worn, Damaged or Faulty Spark Plug Wire(s).
7 Inspect Spark Plug -- Incorrectly Gapped or Fouled Spark Plug(s).
8 Inspect Starter -- Starter Motor Faulty.
9 Inspect Fuel Pump -- Low Fuel Pressure.
10 Inspect Solenoid Switch -- Faulty Starter Solenoid Switch.
11 Inspect Fuel Pump Relay -- Faulty Fuel Pump Relay.
12 Inspect Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator -- Faulty Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator.
13 Inspect Ignition Switch -- Improperly Connected or Faulty Ignition Switch.

My Kia Sorento will start and then it won't start, replaced the fuel pump, but did not replace the fuel filter can this be the problem


When the fuel pump was replaced it is important that you install a new fuel filter as it is necessary to have a clean filtered fuel into the pump. Also check the injectors and the spark plugs.
If the spark intensity is low check the HT COILS and the ignition system triggers to the HT coils.
If spark is good then the fuel pressure and calibration must solve the issue.
Take help for consensus.
Thank you for using fixya.

The pin on the back side of the key may be sheared or the "push" lever may not be moving. Lower your steering column to check.

The fuel injectors


the first thing you should check if your car doesnt start is compression, then ignition, then fuel, in that order, even if you got spark and fuel without compression your going no where
