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.

Car is turning over but wont start seems like gas problem


Listen for the 2 second hum or buzz from the gas tank, when you turn the key to on, not start. The pump should run for about 2 seconds to put pressure in the lines and up to the fuel rail. If you don't hear it, first check the fuel pump fuse, usually in the under hood fuse/relay center. Or you could check for fuel pressure at the testing port-shrader valve- on the fuel rail. If you punch the center valve down with a small screwdriver, gas should try to spurt out. If no pressure, the pump is bad or the wiring to it needs to be investigated. Power flows from the battery to the fuse to the fuel pump relay and then to the gas tank. The relay is turned on by the pcm and allows the relay to pass power on to the pump.

Many parts stores rent or loan fuel pressure gauges to check your fuel pressure. The correct pressure is critical for the injectors to work right. If the car won't start, check fuel pressure and check for spark. Usually gas or spark is the problem.

Car wont start just keeps turning it started for about 3 seconds then sputtered and shut off now wont start


Gas or spark, one is probably lost. Have your fuel pressure checked, to see if the pump is still working good. If you have fuel pressure, check for spark on a plug wire. If you have a strong, blue, snapping spark at the plug wire ends (check more than just one, ideally all of them), then the ignition is probably good.

Also, always check for any trouble codes from the engine computer (the PCM), when you are having engine problems.

Car wont start


could be few different problems first u need to check for fuel pressure and spark
hook a fuel pressure gauge up and see if ur getting any fuel pressure if you have no fuel pressure u either have bad pump or out of gas (don't laugh i had cars come in shop for a no start that where just out gas)
if u have fuel pressure
then check for spark
take one spark plug wire of a spark plug and hold wire about 1/4 inch away from either the spark plug or engine block if u see a spark or hear one
if you have no spark your looking at a few different possibles Bad coil, ignition module, crank sensor, etc
if you have fuel pressure and spark but still no start u need to check for injector pluse (basically computer telling fuel injectors to open)
but now i think I'm getting over your head let me know if this helps and i try to walk u threw other things if this dont help

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.

You should actually check the fuel pressure with a gauge, you can probably borrow one from AutoZone. I would think you should have around 40 PSI. There should be a test port on the fuel rail (chrome tube on top of the engine). It could be a plugged fuel filter or frozen gas line if you're in a cold climate.

93 honda del sol will turn over but wont start. It has a new time belt, distrib, and the main relay works.


Is it not getting spark or gas? It needs both to run. Both main source. If no spark in any cylinder, then ignition module or crank sensor is likely faulty. If no gas, then fuel pressure regulator or fuel pump or fuel pump relay is bad.

"Cranks, but won't start". Replaced fuel pump, CKP, ICM & nothing


If the engine cranks over normally when you attempt to start you car, but the engine does not start, the problem may be NO FUEL, NO SPARK or NO COMPRESSION. The engine needs adequate fuel pressure, a properly timed spark and normal compression to start.


1) To find why the engine won't start, remove the air inlet tube from the throttle body, push the throttle open and spray a small amount of aerosol starting fluid into the engine. Crank the engine. If it has spark and compression but NO FUEL, it will start and run a few seconds before dying. If it does NOT start, it probably has NO SPARK.

2)Another method to check for spark is to pull a spark plug wire off of a spark plug (if it has plug wires, coil-on-plug ignitions do not) and place the open end of the plug wire near a metal surface on the engine. Have a helper crank the engine while you watch for a spark. DO NOT hold the wire while doing this as it can shock you. If you see a spark, the problem is not spark, but most likely NO FUEL or NO COMPRESSION. If you do not see a spark, the problem is in the IGNITION CIRCUIT.

3)Proper fuel pressure is critical for fuel injected engines to start and run. You should hear the fuel pump inside the fuel tank buzz for a couple of seconds when the ignition is turned on (no buzz means the pump is not running and the engine is not getting fuel). You can smell the tailpipe for gasoline vapors after cranking the engine. If you smell gas, the problem is likely not fuel but NO SPARK. You can also remove the plastic cap and press the schraeder valve test fitting on the fuel rail to see if there is any fuel pressure to the engine (not a very accurate test because fuel pressure must be at a certain level for the engine to start, for that you need a gauge). Even so, no fuel at the fuel rail would tell you fuel is not getting to the engine..

bad ignition module . if you getting no spark .plugs wet probably. check fuel pump pressure first before buying another one they are not cheap. replace fuel filter also.
