Mitsubishi diamante weak spark

Car wont start. It has a weak spark At first we thought it was a fuel pump. It was not getting fuel. Changed fuel pump. Still no fuel. Then thought the gas gauge wasn't working and put gas in. Filled it from 1/4 tank to 1/2 tank. Now it's getting fuel but now the spark is weak. The spark is yellow when I checked it.

Check the fuel pressure on the fuel rail on top of the motor. Diesel fuel tends to be "dirtier" than gasoline, and I'd be willing to bet the fuel filter is stopped up.

SOURCE: car wont start. turns over but wont catch.

The fuel pumpmay have failed. Try having someone turn the key to the ON position while you listen under the car near the fuel tank for the fuel pumo to hum. If it does not, or it sounds like it is grinding, then it may have failed. A pressure test with a gauge would be need to check for proper pressure.

when you changed the fuel pump, did you bump the sending unit in tank. or a wire to tank may be the problem. maybe sending unit in tank is bad!

Let me also say that on my 97 pathfinder it ran good up until i replaced the water pump. then it wouldnt start. so i changed the spark plug wires and plugs. same thing...wants to start just wont fire up....

My first thought was the timing belt was not in time since you have to remove the belt to get to the pump.
The crank sensor is near the flywheel so it should not have been touched.
But timing should not affect the spark coming out of the coil.
It could be a problem with the resistor for the coil or something with the computer.
Did you also replace the cap and rotor when you changed the distributor ? Is the spark weak coming out of the coil ?
You may have to get a used shop manual from Ebay to get the test procedures and wiring diagram for the ignition system.

Car wont start

Not getting any spark. Fuel pump is running so its getting fuel. The only other thing it could be is not getting a spark. Check your spark plugs. Make sure they properly gapped.

2004 325xi BMW wont start - replace spark plugs and fuel pump

If u hear the engine cranking in the AM, the batt & alt sound good. If you don't get any engine cranking in the am you may have an electrical short draining the battery. Before u convict the starter u must make sure the battery has full power in the AM. (12V) & 12 V to the starter

Changed fuel pump but it wont start

Check for spark, if spark then spray start fluid into throttle body, if it starts check your fuel injectors with a noid light also check crankshaft position sensor. If the pump wont pump check the fuse and connection to the fuel pump for voltage.

even though , you changed the spark plugs, were you getting any spark before you changed them, if you didn't check for spark, i would check out the coil, for spark, you can do this by removing 1 of the spark plug wires and ground it, then have someone to crank over the engine, to see if spark is present, if no spark, i would check the ignition control module inside the distributor.

2001 chevy silverado won't start when warm

Possible weak spark from ignition coil or low fuel pressure due to weak pump. Try spraying carb clean into intake throttle body when problem is present. If vehicle will start and run with a little spray then fuel pump is failing.

Car wont start .

You will not be able to hear the fuel pump on that model. First you have to determine if you get fuel and have spark. If it is a fuel problem, replace the DME relay first. Very common. They act up and fail without warning. Part is cheap and located in the fuse box. Next would be the fuel pump.
If it is spark related it may be the Flywheel Reference Sensors. There are two and the cost about $100 each.

Good Luck.
