2002 kia sedona will not start, new starter , sounds like not getting gas or maybe flooding any ideas


If you smell gas it is getting gas, if not check the fuel filter. Next thing to check is to see if there is a spark. Remove the spark plug from the engine. Have someone crank the engine with the spark plug grounded, see if there is a spark. Also check for the smell of gas in the spark plug hole.

Will not start in cold weather


Gas engines don't have glow plugs. You have got a problem with the fuel injection system or ECM. You will to have shop plug in the diagnostic code reader to find the failed part or just start replacing parts and hope you find it. First thing I would try is disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes or so to give the ECM time to reset it's self, they try it. Do not touch the gas peddle before starting. It's all in the ECM.

Hello you will need to replace the spark plugs you quoted it is getting lots of gas so your spark plugs are wet.disconnect your battery while your replacing your spark plugs once finished replacing the spark plugs reconnect the battery now try to start it should start up.

1993 volvo 760 getting gas and spark,but still wont start.


Its easy enough to check for spark but how are you checking that you are really getting gas. Are the spark plugs new. If so the check that you have the right ones. It is not uncommon for a parts guy to give you the wrong plugs . If the plugs are not new and the car was running fine with those plugs before all this happened and the plugs look fine now, no bad, black carbon deposits then lets move on . Did you just put gas in the car. sometimes you can get a load of bad gas, I mean water in the gas when I say bad. Been lots of rain lately and this does happen. Pull the plugs on the car and spray some starter fluid down the cylenders. Replace the plugs and turn the engine over. If it fire up for a second or two and then quits, I would start looking at the fuel system. The fuel solinoid relay, which would supply power to the fuel pump could be a problem. Be sure you are getting fuel in the cylenders.

Crank no start ,got fuel got spark, when trying to start spark plugs get wet ,changed plug pinched fuel line shut try srarting flud wont start???


You pinched the fuel line????
If you crank for too long to start the car, the engine will "flood", this is why the plug was wet. It had too much gas and wouldn't start.
Pull out ALL plugs and dry them off.
Install them.
HOLD your gas pedal to the floor and crank.
This will stop gas from entering the engine.
you need to get that extra gas out beofre it will start.
If you have so much gas in there you can do damage to your engine!!
Now after a few crnaking attempts with your foot to the floor, take your foot of the gas pedal and try to start it again.
But remember if it doesn't start in 3 tries, you need to do the pedal to the floor once or twice to remove the excess gas.
When you crank the car to start it sprays gas into the engine, even if it won't start. So it very easy to "flood" the engine, and then you'll have a hard time to get it going!

Car wont stART.TURNSOVER BUT WONT start


Pull a spark plug after trying to start it, and sniff the plug. If it smells like gas, you are getting fuel. Then check for spark. First leave the gas to dry off the plug. Then with heavy gloves on, or holding the metal body of the plug to the engine block with it plugged into the plug wire, have someone crank it while you look for a bright bluish spark between the electrodes on the plug. If nothing, your problem is ignition rather than fuel. Good luck. Again, make sure the gas has dried from the plug before you try this, and make sure to hold the plug and wire with something insulated. It will give you a serious shock if you don't!

1994 s 10 will not start


check your oil. pull the dipstick and smell the end of it. find out if you can smell gas in the oil. If so the car won't start because it is fuel fowled. change the plugs. be aware this will only solve the problem until enouph gas gets back through and fowles them again....... have it checked to find out why you gas is getting to your plugs.
