Someone would need to check for power and ground at the coils and that the timing belt is ok.

    Maybe. If the cam is not turning the computer may not have enough info to fire the coils.

Coil pak not firing 97 lesabre 3.8 relaced non firing pak, didnt help.


If three coils plugged into ignition module, and one isn't firing. One coil fires two plugs, when you remove that one coil, use a test light at ignition module primary terminals, where that coil plugs in, have a helper crank it, if the light doesn't flash, replace the ignition module. You may want to disable engine so it won't start. I can't think what else it might be? I've seen this problem before, at that time, it turned out to be the ignition module that was faulty.

Wont start


Pull a spark plug and see if it is wet with fuel. If it is than I would suspect a bad crank sensor. Very common on hyundais's. I need to know what engine you have to post specifics. Most likely the crank sensor is located down by the crank pulley behind the timing cover on the four cylinders. The timing belt needs to be removed in order to replace the sensor.

2002 saturn sl won't start, turn over but won't start


If the engine fires up for a second or two with starting fluid then the fuel pump is weak.I would check the fuel pressure and if its not within the specs then replace the pump and filter.

What's your problem?I did all these changes to my 1999 Dodge Durango. They are distributor cap, rotor, wires, spark plugs, and pick up coil. My fuel pump is working I also check the alternator and it...


Check that the crank shaft position senser is plugged in and working and not broken this will cause your comp to not send fire to you coil and it won't fire hope this helps you

I have a 1998 Chevy Cavalier that I can not figure out why it won't start. The following list of parts are brand new: Battery, PCM, Park Neutral Safety Switch, Alternator, Ignition Switch, and finally...


Your car has a sealed transmission, in order to check it you have to go to the dealer or a transmission

shop, its not owner servicable. takes dextron vi, 4 speed 7.4 quarts, 3 speed 4quarts

And as far as the no start, are your plugs getting voltage, if not check your coil, if there is no spark

to your plugs the car will not fire up. good luck!

Turns over but, won't start


Possible you must have the car checked for the basic fuel/ignition system.
You will need to check on the fuel, the fuel filter, the fuel pump. Check the calibration of the pump .
Also check the spark intensity , check the plugs the HT coils and the trigger voltages.
The ignition timing also must be checked to confirm that the firing is correct.
Finally the engine must crank well so that there is enough voltage to the ignition system.
Hope there are no errors codes that come up when the ignition is turned.

Wires coils and plugs and all are good.....not getting any fire and it just wont start


Are you sure youre not getting a spark? pull a plug wire off the plug of a cylinder and put it on another spare spark plug and crank the motor and look for a spark. If you have spark then its a fuel issue. check your fuel pump. Also be aware of alarm systems and immobolizers if you have them. what i mean is do you have to program your keys? if your keys are not programed then there won't be a spark, even if it fits and can turn it to start. Or if an after market alarm system is stuck on lock.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

Engine cranks but wont start. may start but immediately dies out


hi i dont mean to sound harsh but never assume anything with cars, if the engine cranks but wont start check for a spark at the plugs if no spark then you know that the problem is ignition or electrical in nature. if you have a good spark then you need to find out if you have fuel to the engine a good trick which i use is to spray some carb or injection cleaner into the manifold via a vacuum pipe dont spray it down the intake you might set yourself on fire ! if the engine kicks and attempts to run you know its a fuel fault . come back when youve established this.
