Are you trying to time the engine with the distributor? if so find the crankshaft pulley and look for the top dead center mark and mark it with some white out this will provide the timing mark and with timing light you can adjust the timing plus or minus which ever the engine requires.

My 2000 Explorer 5.0 engine is really hard to start.


Fuel can be a problem. There is a system called the "cold start sequence". This is an electronic solution to the old choke system. This system is triggered by the water temperature sensor. If the water temperature sensor is stuck on a warm mode, the engine will not have a choke.

You might change the fuel filter and check the fuel pressure. Check battery voltage too as sometimes weak voltage will make for misfires and as the alternator creates more juice the engine runs better.

Engine wont catch


Catch?
cranks fast
starts every time.
idles fine hot or cold , or both? hot idle not too fast.
i race engine , in park and neutral, I can hit 3500 rpm easy, can you.
i release brakes, (brakes are not packed in ICE , are they?)
I select 1gear or reverse (A/T or m/t)
the car moves or dont move, which is it, my guess catch = no move at all.
I try to drive, i look at RPM and MPH
RPM moves up and MPH track.
track means they both move in a linear progression.
RPM rises and for all RPM increases MPH also increases.
does it?
if all that works then we have an engine power issue.
weak on hills?

2005 hyundai tucson 2.0L engine rebuild with new bearings,timing belt and chain. Also new pisitons rings. when trying to start engine it would not catch. spark is fine on all wires and engine is turning...


If the timing chain is off one tooth it will be hard to start. Check the coil and make sure you getting a good spark. Also make sure yor battery is good and your alternator is putting out at least 13.6 volts or more.

My vehicle will turn over but will not catch, what's wrong


Someone will need to find out if you lost fuel to the injectors, spark to the plugs, or have a mechanical engine problem such as the timing belt.
It may still be under factory warranty.

Transmission not leaving first gear


SOunds like the linkage needs adjusting. If it don't catch until it is in first gear, that is why it isn't shifting. Hopefully adjusting the linkage will allow it to catch in drive and then you will shift fine.

Good Luck

Trouble starting, engine won't catch


Try pulling the engine coolant temp sensor, They often crack not sure why but the ceramic tip cracks makes the car hard to start, the car's idle may race while shifting gears, and often smokes. The sensor is on the right side of the engine when looking at it on the head. Easy to change and get too
