Lack of power and going through gas


If you have not had a tune up recently I would do that first. Most likely the plugs are shot.

2000 blazer will not start did a manifold gasket job, replaced plugs, wires, distributor cap,new fuel filter. Cranked and ran really good for 2 days then will not crank


Check you starter, maybe you have a loose connection. Try to give direct power to the starter and see what's happening. I nothing happens, you have a bad starter.

When driving sometimes it will loose power like it is giving out of gas but it has gas in it i replaced spark plugs ,wires ,both fuel filters but not cap and rotor


Hi and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the distributor cap. If the distributor cap carbon is faulty the result will surely be lack of power or stalling. Once replaced you'll be good.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Won't Start 1998 Honda Civic EX 4 cl - 5 speed. Has plenty of start power but won't turn over. Could it be a distributor cap problem or a fuel pump. I have tried to push start, it has gas, stuck and...


Hi Tim,

I'm not sure what you mean by plenty of start power, but I'll try my best to explain things. If this doesn't help, reply back with answers to the following questions:
-Do the belts in the engine move when you try to start it?
-Do you hear any noises when you try to start it? (a single click, repeated clicking like a machine gun, etc)
-Do the lights on the dashboard stay illuminated when you try to start it, or do the flicker?

If the car will not turn over, it is usually a lack of electrical power (discharged battery), a failed starter solenoid (the switch that supplies power to the starter), or the starter motor itself. The only "non electrical" problem would be if the engine itself was seized.

If the engine turns over (the camshaft turns), then yes, it could be a distributor cap, ignition coil, ignition coil wire(s), or fuel pump, just to name a few. Your best bet would be to get a service manual for your specific model Honda and follow the troubleshooting guide in it. This will prevent you from throwing money away on parts that may not need to be replaced.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

My sable is backfiring and lacks power sometimes with jerks


Hi,
It sounds like you have a timing issue. One question I would have to ask, is if recently, have the spark plugs or plug wires been replaced. Sometimes a plug wire can be snapped onto the wrong plug or into the wrong spot on the distributor.
Else I would have the timing checked. This could be a quick fix for you. I'm hoping so... Good luck!

1993 jimmy wont start


you are off the timing by a tooth or two. when you replaced the cap and rotor, if you did not mark the position of the rotor with some point on the motor or firewall, then it is likely that you installed the rotor by a couple of degrees. so, when you are going up hill, and the engine needs to advance the timing to add power you timing is off even more causing lack of power and sputtering and backfiring.
