injectors not working, check the tan- lt green wire on the fuel relay that is located on the right fender, mine wasn't pushed in all the way, this wire shut down spark and fuel, if you are looking for the shut off switch to reset the relay, it is on the passagers side floor board under the dash, gas two wires, orange and pink, I don't remember the color of the stripes, I removed this switch and wired them together without a problem

85 chevy 2500 5.7L fuel gauge stopped working and truck died. Fuel pump was replaced 3 months ago


Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. Does distributor turn when you crank it? If spark everywhere, check fuel. If you have a carb, mechanical fuel pump, sometimes you can take fuel supply line loose from carb, aim into container, bump the engine, see if gas comes out, if no gas have to back track. If there is gas, take the air horn off carb, depending on the carb, you may be able to remove air horn w/o removing carb, see if any gas in float bowl, if no gas, maybe you need a carb kit?
Any vehicle needs fuel--spark--compression, right amount at the right time.

2002 saturn l300 doesnt want to start I want to know if anybody knows where to start looking for the problem besides the fuse box. It has a brand new battery.


If it won't start, it is very likely either fuel or spark is lost at the engine. Is the engine getting gas to it from the gas tank? Do you hear the fuel pump turn on for 2 seconds with the key in on, not start? This 2 second period is to put pressure in the line and to the fuel injectors.

If gas is getting up to the engine, next check for spark. Buy a cheap spark tester, hook it to a spark plug wire and crank the engine over. If ignition system is good, you will see a blue, snapping spark on all of the spark plug wires. If you have spark, next check the fuel injector circuit. Post back if you need help with that.

If you have no spark, aha! your ignition system has failed. Now you really do need to check all your fuses before proceeding. Most common failure with no spark is an ignition coil, a bad ignition control module, or a bad crank position sensor. Many other possibilities, but those are the most common.

2000 ford 4.0 explorer cranks but fails to start. It acts like it starts after sitting all night but then only cranks, what is wrong?


Check for spark to the sparkplug. Try a shot of starting fluid as having gas pumping and having the fuel injectors opening are 2 different things. If you have spark, then the fuel injectors may not be working. Quick diagnosis is to use starting fluid and see if engine tries to run. This indicates problem is not lack of spark but lack of fuel getting into cylinders.

Cranks won't start


smelling gas like you are is a bad thing, engine must turn over to fire injector. sounds like flooding ( possible ECM/power computer bad ). Before condemning the computer pull all spark plugs, disable ignition coils, then try cranking to see if engine will turn over. Be carful if hydro locked gas will be pushed out the spark plug hole/s

Car won' start, battery is ok, antifreeze is low but not out could this be the problem?


No. it wouldn't keep it from starting. If the engine cranks but won't start, probably gas or spark (ignition) related. Do you hear the fuel pump in the tank turn on for a couple of seconds, when turning key to on, not start? If you cannot hear the pump, better check if you are getting gas up to the engine. Maybe the fuel pump quit, or the pump circuit needs looked at. The pump should briefly turn on with key on to pressurize the fuel system-the fuel line and the fuel rail where the injectors are. Then the pump will turn off, and only come back on again when the engine is cranking, and stay on when running.
Correct fuel pressure is important for easy starting, and good engine performance. Have the fuel pressure checked against the specification for your vehicle. If fuel pressure is good, check the ignition system-check for spark.

Hi,here's what you need to do to find out the cause of your problem, and get your car back on the road.
  • Make sure that you have enough gas in your car. This sounds like common sense but many people don't think to check this before wondering why their car won't start. Try to refill your tank when it is no less than one quarter full, or you risk getting stalled or stuck somewhere.
  • Verify that the battery has a full charge. A battery with a low or partial charge can cause the engine to crank too slow preventing it from starting. Sometimes a jump will fix this problem, but if your battery is more than five years old you should consider replacing it, especially if winter is only a few months away.
  • Check to see if your fuel pump is turning on. This can easily be done by putting your key in the ignition, turning it to the "on" position, and listening carefully with your ear pointed toward the back seat. If your fuel pump is working you will here an electric "whirring" noise for about 2 seconds every time you cycle the key on and off. If you hear nothing then your fuel pump is faulty or not getting any power.
  • Find out if the engine is getting gas to it. Sometimes a plugged fuel filter or a problem with the fuel injectors can prevent the engine from getting any gasoline. To check this remove the air cleaner and smell inside the throttle body or air cleaner housing. If the engine is getting enough gas you should be able to sense a strong gasoline smell due to the amount of uncombusted fuel left inside the intake manifold.
  • Determine whether the spark plugs are firing. If there is plenty of gas but no spark, the engine will crank but not start. Unplug one of the spark plug wires and plug in a spark tester. Have a friend get in the car and crank the engine while you watch to see if the spark tester illuminates. You can usually purchase a spark tester at an auto parts store for about ten dollars.

Engine turns over but won't start


A few suggestions...

If the battery terminals are clean (and they probably are, as you just replaced the battery), and the starter sounds like it's cranking, then there are usually two other things to check for. Gas and spark.
You need both to make the engine run. It's a little involved, though for most do-it-your-selfers, it's a-run- of-the-mill process. You have to see that fuel is getting to the cylinders by disconnecting a gas line and very briefly, repeat, very briefly, crank the engine. If any gas spurts out, you're getting gas to the cylinder. If not, there's a problem with the fuel system. Be sure there is no spark or open flame anywhere nearby. Take the car in to a shop.

The other most likely possibility is that your cylinders are getting no spark. You have to disconnect a spark plug wire and see if you are getting a spark. This is a little more involved. Get a fix-it manual for the in-depth procedure. When checking for a spark, make sure there is no open fuel lines around!

Hard Start Toyota Landcruiser HZJ75


two first things to check fuel and spark ...fuel make sure your fuel pump is working its messy but the easiest way is to pull the fuel line "only one connection" and turn key to on then press gas pedal and gas should pump out if not fuel pump is bad... if thats not it you want to check for spark easiest way is to pull one of the spark plug wires and stick a screwdriver in the end then hold the screwdriver to where the metal shank is approx. 1/4" away from any metal surface ... hold the screwdriver without touching the metal shank!!! have someone crank the engine you should see a spark intermittently between the screwdriver and the metal youre holding it close to.. if thats ok the only other thing i can suggest is get a battery with more cca "cold cranking amps"..hope this helps..OH YA ON A SAFER NOTE!!!...DONT LOOK FOR SPARK WITH THE ENGINE WET WITH FUEL..
