SOURCE: 99 intrepid 2.7 engine cranks alot to get started

Did the old engine start ok? If so then take a good look at the Crank Position Sensor or the flywheel sensor ring. Some times the flywheel ring can get bent/damaged during an engine swap. It doesn't take much to dent that ring and it is really close to the CPS. The other thing you can try is turn the key on without starting several times before cranking. This will pulse the fuel pump each time and charge up the fuel pressure. If that works you have a fuel pressure issue (probably a pump) Let me know how it goes.

Is the pressure in the fuel system not holding? Fuel pump may be failing or the filter may be bad. Sounds like you're pumping the fuel system back up to pressure before the truck will start. Like when a fuel-injected car runs outta gas and you have to prime the system before it'll start again.

Darien, just because it's getting good spark at the spark plug wires doesn't mean that the spark plugs are firing. Now let's get your girlfriend happy again, Remove those spark plugs, check the center electrode and see if they are worn down, if they are worn down, change all 4, Good luck, Gary

The engine turns over but the motor will not start. The van was running fine when it was cut off. It doesn't seem to be getting gas.


It's very likely your fuel pump has failed. Have somebody thump on the fuel tank while you're cranking the engine and see if it starts. If it does, replace the fuel pump. Otherwise get your fuel pressure checked, and check for spark. If no spark, check to make sure the distributor is turning(if applicable) If a 3.3 motor with no spark, suspect the crank sensor or cam sensor. Crank sensor is much easier to replace if experimenting.

Engine turns over but won't start. plugs and wires changed


A diagnostic check of the vehicle will pinpoint your no starting problem,but if that isn't an option for you and you want to do the work yourself, follow these step's:
Check for spark WHILE TRYING TO CRANK THE ENGINE. If no spark is present,check to see if there is power coming from the switch during cranking. If you have spark,check to see if you are getting fuel. If you aren't getting fuel,check your fuel filter(it coud be clogged) and check ALL fuse's. If you aren't getting spark AND fuel,then check the crank sensor as it is the controller for spark and fuel delivery.

My 2000 saturn l series won't start.new battery. seems like it wants to start, just won't catch


If it turns over but won't run, I would check to make sure you're getting fuel and spark. Pull a plug after turning the engine over a few times and if it smells like gas then you're getting fuel, if not then that's your problem. If you're getting fuel, you may not be getting spark. Hold the plug against the engine block and have someone turn the engine over a couple times. You should be able to see spark, but if not then there's your problem. Good luck!

Car will not start


you getting sparks; check the basic from fuse and relay. Its seems like you not getting any fuel by having to give it fuel, check the fuel pump see if it working, you can remove it and connect straight to 12v and do a jump. If the fuel pump is good then it will be the crank sensor, crank sensor turn on the fuel pump as long the engine continue turning over. what crank sensor does it sense the crank/flywheel turning and it send single to the computer than computer send power to the fuel pump. sensor tend to go bad over time and heat exposure; the sensor it fairly cheap to replace.

Audi 100s 1993 cranks doesn,t start, turns over no start. when it starts runs rough and stalls.


could very well be a faulty sensor, leaky vaccum hose, bad coil packs, needing of new fuel filter, spark plugs, wires.

Have you checked your fuel pressure to make sure it is good. You can do this with fuel pressure tester on the fuel rail.

Also check every cylinder for spark
If you don't have any spark, or very weak spark, you could have bad coil pack, module, or crank sensor.

You can remove one plug at a time, and place it back on plug wire, place it on top of engine block, have someone else turn motor over well you observe to see if there is spark.

Do you have a service or check engine light on? If so, I would have the engine codes read to pinpoint exact problem area.

Let me know if you have any questions or need further help

03 mach 1 cranks no start


A 6 year old car with only 5,900 miles on it would indicate that it was sitting for long periods of time. I would check the fuel filter first if it does not seem to be getting fuel.

I would also check the fuel pump shut off switch, should be located in the trunk on the drivers side. (owners manual will tell you for sure)

Not starting


A couple of things to check, when the engine is turning over, do you have spark? You can disconnect one of the spark plug wires, insert a screw driver in the end of the wire, hold the screwdriver 1/4" away from the block, crank the engine over and see if you have spark.
If you do have spark, borrow or purchase a fuel pump pressure gauge ($40 to $50), connect it to the fuel injector rail test port (looks like a tire valve stem with a cap on it) crank the engine over and record the fuel pressure. You should have 55 to 60 PSI. Make sure it does not leak down more than 5 PSI after you stop cranking the engine.
Good luck, let me know.

What coul be keeping my 1986 honda civic from starting? The plugs all spark, the fuel pump gives gas to the carb, Ive changed all plugs cap and rotor and have tried spraying starter fluid directly into...


It cranks really good sputters a little and makes some loud pops but it will not turn over? FYI:Cranking and turning over are the same thing. When was the last time it ran. The gas could be bad. Did you get new plug wires as well. Try testing the distributor, remove a spark plug, plug it back into the wire, and touch the threads to ground and crank the engine. It should spark. Keep your fingers away, that's high voltage. Remove all spark plugs, spray some starting fluid in each cylinder, then crank the engine with the plugs out. This will clean any debris from the cylinders. Engines need backpressure to run properly, a major exhaust leak hence the popping, could cause it to not run. If you can get it started try to keep it going, full throttle, keep in the starting fluid, it could just need to get warm. I used to have one of them and they don't like it when they're cold.
