The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

ENG TURNS OVER BUT DON'T START


Need to check for fuel pressure. There is a schrader valve on the fuel rail on the belt side of the motor under the upper intake. Really common for those vehicles' fuel pumps to **** out. If you have fuel check for spark. You can do that by removing a spark plug then connecting the wire back to it and leaving the plug tip near unpainted metal on the motor. Step back DO NOT TOUCH THE PLUG WHILE THE MOTOR IS BEING CRANKED and have someone else try to start the car. You will see a blue or white spark at the tip if you're getting spark. An orange or red spark indicates a weak ignition coil.

Turns over but will not start. It has gas in it.


first off you need to make sure they fuel is getting presure at the fuel rail, look for the shrader valve, it looks like the air stem on your tire, turn the key on and off a few times with out trying to start it this will give you an idea if there is fuel presure in the lines, this is not a fuel presure test and your presure could be low and causing the no start, also get a spark tester and put in on each spark plug wire and make sure you have spark also, if you are laking any of the above you should test accordingly

Hello. I can assist you. You need to get your truck on a scanner. You can have this done at a dealership or at many autoparts stores, often auto zone [for instance]. the scan will isolate the problem so that it can be solved.

2004 tahoe. Worked fine two days ago. Wont start but turns over. replaced fuel filter,now what?


check for spark and fuel at the motor! take one of the spark plug wires off and remove the spark plug and put the wire back on it and rest the spark plug on a negitive ground point and have someone try to start it and see if the is spark. to check to see if fuel is getting up there locate the fuel presure relief valve on the fuel rail that the injectors are connected to and while someone it trying to start it depress the valve and see if fuel squirt out.

My mazda tribute 04 want start it trys


there is a fuel rail on your motor in the fuel rail you will find a cap it looks like a tire valve cap
some cars black plastic some light silver metal
find the cap and take it off push down on the schrader valve to see if you have fuel preasure b4 you start changing parts
if it has fuel but it isnt a huge amount
check the fuel presure reg

by having a friend turn on the ignition and while they do that push the valve down if huge fule ammount or huge presure then start looking at the FPR
if it has good or a lot of presure then start by checking the spark
if you can borrow an obd2 tester canadian tire loan a tool and you can borow eithor cheep or free from them
remember you have friends too so dont for get to ask if they have or hnow anyony who might have that you can borrow it

hi how are you?just because you hear the fuel pump running does not mean that it is pumping enough preasuer to the motor to open the injectors. you need 48 lbs with key on engine off and with the vacume line off the presure regulator.if you have enough presure then you will have to check for a good blue spark.the fuel presure test port is located just under the thermostat housing on the steel fuel rail.
