I was driving my 1998 zx2 and it shut off it sounds like it gonna start but just wont turn over ive checked igntion coil fuel pump and filter im stuck what else do i look for?


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.

You haven't flooded the engine correct, check the spark plugs. Also, how fresh is the gas? Try shaking the car to get the gas mixed up and try cleaning out the cylinders with a torch to blow out excess gas. You should also either try cleaning the spark plugs or replace them if they look bad. It is starting up fine, correct? The alternator is good, right? I believe it is since it sounds like you didn't drive it long enough to drain the battery but check it anyway. By losing power, did the electronics start shutting off first or did the engine die first as this would show whether the alternator is bad or not. Please answer my questions and get back to me on what shut off first when it died and I will help you narrow down the problem with this car.

good luck

Dashboard lights and gauges go out, windows won't work


Your alternator is out. Those are classic symptoms of alternating going out. The alternator recharges your electrical system and when it goes out a list of strange things go on inside the dash, and you won't be able to go very far on just a battery. I'm glad you at least made it home. But yes you will need a new alternator for sure. Please rate this response so I can get my ratings back up to 90% at least.

Car shut off while driving, will not start. Code


Does the check engine light come on? If not, and the fuses are good, the computer maybe bad.

to clear the codes, just disconnect the battery (negative) & hold the brake a few seconds, just to drain all power. Hook up the battery.
To do a retest for emissions though - 1st drive it about 40 miles or it will fail again saying the computer isn't functioning right or something. This is what happened to me anyway & still had to pay for another test. Hope this helps.
