The alternator is not in the starting system,but most people think it is

The fuel pump has to be on until it sees a crank signal and supplies
pressure at fuel rail. Do you have that ?

Do you have spark while cranking?

Is the intake ducting in place & maf hooked up?

I assume it turns over,your saying no start correct?

SOURCE: my 98 dodge avenger wont start i think its the starter pleas help

Sounds like the solenoid not grounded if you try to start and all it does is click then the solenoid is not grounded and if it's built on to the starter which it might be you might have to replace the starter. Try cleaning the wires going to the starter before you buy a new they may be corroded.

Check fuel pressure, had this problem a year ago, bet the fuel pump is gone you should be able to hear the pump come on when you turn the key forward. You should hear it hum if not its dead, costly repair the pump,regulator and filt is all one unit.

Dodge avenger will only start with starter fluid

You have a fuel issue problem. Either a fuse, a relay or a failed fuel pump.

Cranks but doesnt start

I am a self emplyed mechanic, if a motor cranks but does not start, that is not a starter, you need to see if you have gas or spark . is there a buzzing in the gas tank when you turn the key. if so then you have gas. now you needto see if you have spark. need 2 people to do this . pull a spark plug wire and stick a screw drive in the boot and crank the motor please stand back,and look for spark. if you have spark. then you need a crank position sensor thank you ted

It will not start ran out of gas know has a 1/2 tank and still want start

the first thing you should check is the fuel pump. when turning the ignition to the on position, if the car is completely silent, you can hear the fuel pump click or make noise towards the back of the car. one thing i would suggest doing is turning the car on, but not trying to start it, that way the fuel pmp can beggin to pump fuel to the engine. if after a while you try to start it and no go, then keep turning it over. it might take a lot of turning over to start because the fuel lines alone have over a gallon on most cars, so it might be normal if it takes forever to start the first time. another way to check to see if the fuel pump is working is after trying to turn it over, and you remove the gas cap, you will hear the pressure being let out. if you hear this, that is good. if not, try cheking to see if t he fuel filter has gas in it. if it is still empty, than you have a bigger problem. you should also try spraying either gas of starter fluid into the carburator to make sure no other problems have occured. hope this helps, goodluck.

Gas not getting to the carburator. Starter turns

Check all of the fuel lines very carefully for breaks or cracks in the fuel lines, especially between the fuel tank and the fuel pump.

If the fuel lines are all in good condition then you can safely assume that the problem is in the fuel pump and you will need to replace it. (If the fuel pump is in really bad shape the engine oil on the end of the engine oil dip-stick will smell like fuel)

I have a 1995 Dodge caravan, it turns over but

fuel filter, fuel pump sonds like it is not getting fuel. Because when you spray starter fluid in it, it started and ran on what little bit of starter fluid you sprayed it with.
