You will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing...
- Spark
- Fuel
- Compression

All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.

Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

engine wont start ??? yes you can try start fluid , but etreeme care needs to be taken using this on diesels as the fluid can act as a fuel (of course it can!!) and the engine can run away till its fluid supply burns off (too late!) use it in small doses !! me I use kerosene or my fav is paint thinner ,its a bunch safer and wont destroy the engine like st fluid can , if it sputters on st fluid and still wont stay running , then you have an injector/pump/supply problem , if it wont do anything at all when u crank it over then you have a pistion/valve/head problem

a 05/06 Jeep Dodge, engine swap, really? you posted to jeep...
no engines stated, there are many used . USA car?
won't crank robustly?
or cranks perfectly but wont start and run?

turns over means , zero (so does NO FIRE)

many parts turn over to attain a start and run condition.
RUNNING is the end goal.

if any car fails to start and run and the starting system is good.
then we do this. (gasoline cars, )

My 1991 honda civic runs fine yesturday and today it wont start please help


the car wont start? do you mean the engine wont turn over or it wont fire or run? if the car does not run but it turn over, check the basic..see if you have sparks and fuel, then check all your fuse pertaining to engine and ignition. the car need to have both thing in order for the engine to run. If you getting both sparks and fuel you engine may have jump time especially with older car with high miles, it the sign timing belt getting worn, you don't want it to break. if you don't get fire from spark plug then you may have a bad coil,distubutor,rotor or timing sensor. if you get no fuel, fuse blown, bad fuel pump relay or fuel pump it self. hope that help some ..good luck

Sputtering then stopped running and wont turn over.


Wont turn over are you sure as wont start is differant than wont run
Wont start could be Battery/starter/or engine siezed.
Wont run is not the same,,, that could be lacking power /low on oil/water/ Fuel/or even engine lacking power like down on compression which is all the above plus more ....
So check it out let us know again. Ron
