I have a 98 Dodge ram 1500 pickup cranks over but wont start. Was running fine last night. Started this morning for 3 min then died and wont start


Does it have spark at the spark plug's ? Does it have fuel pressure ? Is the anti-theft light on ? Have you check ASD relay in the under hood fuse/relay box ? There are videos on youtube diagnosing engine cranks no start condition .

Why does the engine turn but wont start on a 2001 chrysler voyager


Hi, it's hard to turn the wheel because the power steering only works when the engine is running.
your non start issue could be several things? So start by checking the basics like petrol,plugs,fuses etc....
also did the car stop when you were driving or after over night?.
Is your car petrol,diesel?

Wont start


pull a spark plug out and crank itover to see if theres compression. Or perform a compession test. If you pull the plug out, and turn it over it should blow air our...strong. If it doesn't, look to the timing belt. If it went from running to not running over night, could be that. check the simple things first. fuel, spark, compression, timing, for starters.

Why won't my car start? It was running last night.


Try start the car again when it is completely dry, if it starts the rain may be short circuiting something on the loom in the engine bay.

If it still wont start,

will it turn over? (car tries to start)
- If it wont turn over the battery would be dead

- If it turns over but wont burst into life then we can go from there ^_^

Hi maryann.

The first thing to check is the battery itself. You should try jump starting the car or replacing the battery with a fully charged one. If that does not work, then you check ignition by verifying that the dash is turning on and that there is voltage to coil; you check if starter motor is running; check sparks, fuel pressure and power to injectors. If all that is OK there is even more testing to be done.

Start by replacing the battery, or jump starting by connecting battery terminals to a different car's battery.If it still does not start, check if starter motor is running. If it runs, check if there is spark by disconnecting spark plug wire and putting the connector near to engine block.

Find someone local to help you doing all that.

Good luck.

91 honda accord wont crank


There is a sensor under the left hand side of the dash that would not allow it to start, provided that you have replaced the electronic spark module inside the distributor first, which is what it sounds like it would be, When you say you replaced the distributor I assume you replaced it complete!

My 92 volvo 940 cranks but wont start, it has fire and fuel but wont ignite. What else could I look for that im missing? The car has been in are family since it was brand new and never had a problem like...


Check your timing. Sounds like you know what you are doing and if you have spark, fuel, and comptression it should run unless it jumped time. It could be off a tooth or two and still have compression. With high milage that would be something to consider.

Running fine then wont'nt start


You will have to pull a spark plug out to check that you have spark when cranking the engine,while you have the plug/s out do a compression test to determine health of engine and wether it is in fact giving compression,eliminates other potential faults if compression is good.If you have compression(around 140 ish)and introduced fuel and it wont fire up it only leaves electrics as the fault.3 major engine requirements to run Fuel,Compression,ignition.When checking spark at night is best as you can easily see wether you have the correct type of spark,Blue and if its quite you will hear the spark as well.Your fault is consistant with ignition module,coil or lack of power to ignition.Faulty modules will give a spark but its too weak to ignite fuel and the spark will be yellow in color.Let me know how it goes.Good luck
