The coil pack would be a first guess as I had that fail in my 94 explorer---follow the trail back to the pack---you may have to do what I did and replace it. You are getting fuel and no error codes?

Have a look at the coil and its supply lead, standard it has a 9v coil and a resistor wire in the harness, this gives trouble ar resistor wire is odd and will not solder or weld and its expansion when hot loosens crimps! If you put 12 volts into a 9v coil it overwhelms (magneticly) the windings and gives a poor spark, also burns the points.

SOunds like the timing belt has broke. To check you can take off distributor cap and turn over engine and see if the rotor turns. If not you have a busted timing belt. Please rate this a fixya if this helps.Thanks!!!

This happend to me before. Go back and check the firing order and make sure the spark plug wires are in the right place. A Chilton auto repair book for your vehicle, available at many auto part stores are really helpful. Check the rotor and distributor cap also and make sure they seat properly. Assuming the distributor itself has not been removed it should start. If the distributor was removed from the vehicle and not installed in the exact position it was before (maybe a couple of notches off) you will have to find top dead center on the compression stroke on plug #1 and check to see if the rotor is pointing at the at plug wire #1 on the distributor cap. The distributor itself can be adjusted by loosening the locking nut and turning it slowly clokwise or counter clokwise to ****** or advance the spark. make sure all your vacume lines are in the right place also. All these procedures can be found in the book.

SOURCE: engine turns over but will not start

Check the distributor and timing order to make sure it has not jumped at all from a timing malfunction.

2000 ford 4.0 explorer cranks but fails to start. It acts like it starts after sitting all night but then only cranks, what is wrong?

Check for spark to the sparkplug. Try a shot of starting fluid as having gas pumping and having the fuel injectors opening are 2 different things. If you have spark, then the fuel injectors may not be working. Quick diagnosis is to use starting fluid and see if engine tries to run. This indicates problem is not lack of spark but lack of fuel getting into cylinders.

Cranks but dont start

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

From start to end troubleshooting these problems I suggest you to check the help link below and follow its procedure: -----

My 92 Acura Legend was cranking fine, until my boyfriend put spark plugs in it. Now my Acura will not crank. When changing the plugs he noticed 2 of the plugs had oil on it. Please help me find out...

first check he put the right plugs back in your car,,,,then check the plug leads are all on the right plugs,,if there not the engine will try to kick back when trying to start and if it did start the engine would jump about and missfire also you would not have any power from it,,,if you find any thing wrong under the hood
,go get a big stick and beet him with it till he gets it right!!!
then throw him out in the street,,and buy a puppy insted!!!!
as for the oily plugs,,,so what??? its an old car,, if its not pumping out blue smoke and burning engine oil dont worry about it,,,its likely to run on for years,,,longer than he may?

Engine will not run but is turning over .

Ck your MAF sensor. first sendor in duct coming out of air filter. Starting fluid can split a piston. Take heed in its use. Good luck. If spark is a question, ck the crank position sensor, at the crank pully. ensure a good clean, connection.
