The coil can be checked by measuring the resistance between the primary terminals, should be 1.33-1.55 ohms. Also check the resistance between the positive primary terminal and the high tension lead, should be 10.7-14.5 k ohms. Hold the spark plug wire (I usually use an old plug inserted into the bood). about 1/4 to 3/8 inch away from the block while cranking and see what kind of spark you get. If you get a good spark, look for something else. jeb

Maybe you have a plugged fuel return line.You have a fuel supply line and a fuel return.If its plugged you can not get the air out of the lines.Remove the the line and blow through it If you cant its clogged.Also you can prime the line line by turning your key on and off .You may need to disconnect the fuel line to make sure gas is coming out when you do this

91 geo tracker won't start without rolling it off. fuel pump runs. you can pour gas in throttle body and once it starts it runs good. turn it off and it won't start back


91 , is 8v motor. know it well and have full docs on it.
rolling it off , 5sp push starting dumping clutch. yes.
you forgot to say the magic words.

does it crank on its own , robustly.
,any engine will run with out a starter.
you need to elaborate on the symptoms.;

you forgot to say how you started car with test fuel.
gaps here.?
how far did you go , with push start, 1 mile , 50 miles?
im going to guess this is a NO CRANK car.


here is my nocrank page.

this is a solution.
all posts on this system are all lacking proper symptoms.

Bad starting


what do you mean "bad starting"

starter dosnt engage?(starter engauges but dosnt catch flexplate or flywheel, maybe dosnt engauge at all)
barely turns over? (like theres no battery causing hard crank)

you can test your battery by starting the car with the headlights on, if the headlights go dim the battery is bad. your battery could be out of date or the alternator could be bad and not charging the battery.
