SOURCE: Hi - I was driving the pickup and a sparkplug just

Most likely the cause of this problem was replacing spark plugs with engine hot. A tap and die may work, make sure you get the correct size. Do not over tighten. You can enlarge the whole using a tap and die and use a larger spark plug. DO NOT ALLOW METAL SHAVING TO FALL INTO CYLINDER WALLS. Start engine with plug out to blow any missed shaving out of cylinder. If this does not work a helicoil will be the next option.

I have a 1996 RAV 4, but it won't start when the air is damp or it has been raining, it only starts when we've had a few dry days, & although I don;t drive it when started, if it's damp again the

no mileage state, nor from last full tune.
it needs a tuneup this decade.
oldest story on earth (cars) (bad spark)
no ignition parts (high voltage) last the life of any engine,. 300k+
so we do what is called a full tuneup at about 60,000 miles.
also called doing the 60k service point list.
open glove box, take out operators guide, yes, really
turn to the 60k page. bingo.

high voltage breaks down all the insulation,
over time.
even your power company must do this. or BOOM,
Have 2 dead friends from BOOM. 17kv distra. systems.

no engine stated so can not be specific.
my guess, is tghis.
The third-generation 3S-GE was produced from 1994 to 1999.
1996 is a big change year, OBD2
and from Distributor spark to none, at Aug, 1996 they swiched
to the DIS system. with a wasted spark coil pack only.
replace the HV wires, and spark plugs.
end story.

if the scan tool shows, P030x errors. fix X
if x is 2 cylinders it might be a bad coil pack,(last thing to replace)

there are 3 spark systems , at this evolution
Distrubutor with internal coil.
wasted spark coil under TB, with 4 HV wires.
and coil over plugs, later, called COPS, 4 coils.

yours may be wasted spark system with 4 HV wires,. replace them.
show a photo of the engine, and i can ID it. in 1 second.

good luck.

I was driving my 1993 grand am se down the free way and lost all power but not the lights or electric inside the car and now it won't start

Probably lost either spark or fuel. First try some starting fluid into the throttle body (take off the big air boot) and see if the engine tries to run on it. If it does, you need to see if the fuel pump quit working. Best is to check fuel pressure-autozone and others rent or loan fuel pressure gauges. If pressure is not there with key on, likely a bad fuel pump. (you should hear the pump turn on for 2 seconds when turning the key to on, not start-this will pressurize the lines up to the fuel rail and to the injectors. Listen for the pump to turn on.)

If you have gas up to the engine, and the starting fluid caused nothing, check for spark. Buy a spark tester from a parts store and check for spark on 2 or 3 spark plug wires. If no spark, the ignition system went out. This is often due to the Crank Position Sensor or the Ignition Control Module.

check earth connection which is negative wire from cars check them all..busted spark plug or dying spark plugs also go for a profe tech who knows and understand the way of diagnosing car some sensor also can be part of the problem if your car is model and has computer on it.. those sensor are hard to find sometimes if you don't have proper knowledge and equipment such as scanners..

My girl friend has a 2004 neon that will not start. The engine cranks over but engine will not fire up. I check for spark at all wires and I have spark. I check for fuel and have good fuel pressure up to...

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

1987 Jeep YJ Hard to start hot

Sounds like a bad distributor control module. You blew-up your muffler because there was no spark.....lots of fuel in the exhaust....then an intremittent spark......BOOM!
Once the module cools off, it works again, because the crack in the circuit board re-connects....until it gets hot again, and opens the more spark. Replace the module.

You may have lost a ground, blew the coilover, or blew a sensor. Probably the crank position sensor.
