Check the timing and spark, chains and belts like jumping in the cold as everything is stiff and doesn't want to turn,if your timing has jumped or slipped that would cause it. so first check if you have spark when you crank the engine,some cars if you disconnect a plug wire it shuts off the spark,see what method your car has for checking for spark.. start there.

Fuel pressure spark car wont start


code p0341 refers to cam shaft position sensor(CMP)sensor A bank1---range/performance problem===causes--insecure sensor/ rotor---air gap---wiring---CMP sensor.. I would pay attention to the sensor and the possible causes as listed because the timing of the engine is related to the position of the cam shaft. Timing is computer controlled and will not be "off" unless the CPU cannot get a definite position of the piston to set the timing

You need to find out if the fuel pump is working, getting gas up to the engine.
If the pump is working and seen to have good fuel pressure, check ignition by checking for spark.. To work, the engine needs, you know, gas, air, spark, and compression. Why people say, check for gas, check for spark.

I have 1996 chevy blazer that turns over but wont start (no spark) ive sprayed ether in it and it tryes to start but no go help


Hi! littlesassys
Your in luck, as I own a 96 Jimmy, and have completed most of the upkeep in the last 12 years. If it tryed to start with ether, it probably has spark. You can disconnect one plug wire and connect it to a new plug, clamped to metal part of engine. You can then crank it over and see if there is any spark. Was it running and accelerating ok before it quit running?
What is the mileage? If you have a T12 driver, you can remove the distributor cap? I can then explane how to check the timing chain. Please check wireing harness and make sure every thing is pluged in and no wires are damaged. I suspect the fuel pump due to age, if you have a fuel pressure gauge you can check the fuel pressure at the port at the back of the engine on one of the fuel lines. A set of A/C gauges with the 3/8 SAE fitting. Fuel pressure should be around 26 psi. I can look this up if you need more spacific numbers. Hope to hear from you soon.

My 96 blazer wont start it just cranks but wont start?


A typical engine needs mostly just gas and spark to run (besides air of course)
Sounds like the engine is not getting one or the other.

Fuel goes from fuel pump, to filter, to fuel pressure regulator, to fuel rail, to injectors.
You can test for fuel pressure with key on, at the fuel rail. There will be a test port on the rail that you can put a rag on top and push in the valve to see if there is pressure. (or use pressure tester)
If there is no pressure, check that fuel pump relay is working. (you can use an ohmmeter on relay to see if there is resistance). You can also test power to relay and to the pump with a voltmeter to see if pump is getting power. Or turn key to ON position and listen to see if you hear the pump turn on.

If you have no spark to any cylcinders, the crank shaft position sensor may be faulty which is very common in GM vehicles.

You can use an ohmmeter to test the sensor itself.
You can also get a spark plug tester to see if there is spark to each cylinder.
You can also remove one spark plug, plug back into plug wire, lay on top of engine so spark plug diode is 1/4" away from metal surface. Have someone else turn engine over while you look for spark. Do this to each cylinder.

96 vw jetta 2.0l will turn over but will not start


I had a problem like this on a 1997 VW Jetta 2.0L. I suggest you obtain a multimeter, a gas pressure gauge, and a used injector from a junk yard. You need to find if the car has spark if it is getting gas and if the injector is firing. Plug a used spark plug into say # 4 spark plug wire and ground end against the manifold or other ground. Have someone crank the engine and see if there is spark. If there is spark then disconnect the electrical connector and plug in the used injector and hold in your hand. Have someone crank the engine and if it clicks as the engine revolves the injector is firing. Now if you have spark and an injector that clicks then put the pressure gauge in the upper line going to the injector manifold. Use a T so that the fuel can still flow into the manifold. If these three things check out. You need to also verify the engine is timed correctly and the timing belt did not slip a few teeth. I had a problem with my crankshaft sensor. I bought a new one and although I was getting about a .3 volt ac signal, I still had no spark at spark plugs. I wound up getting another new crankshaft sensor and read 3 volts ac from the new sensor. I then had good spark Hope this helps

96 toyota 4 runner won't start


Check the fuel pressure. A slight dip in pressure will keep the engine from starting. When is the last time you did a tune up? Even if you are getting some spark you might not have enough. New plugs, wires, distr. cap could solve this problem. Or try a new fuel filter. When diagnosing a car problem always do simple cheap things first, as this usually ends up being the cause.
