SOURCE: car wont start

I noticed you replace the crankshaft sensor, but not the CAMshaft sensor.
The Ignition module takes the input of both sensors to tell the coil when to energize.
This sensor should come up as an error code when you attach a obd reader.
Even if your light is not on - there may be a code. If it is not your vehicle originally, some people pull the bulb!

SOURCE: 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.

Turn igniton and nothing happens gauges work but want start

Does the acc position work. if so....Under the dash there are two wires, one is red and the other is red/black, these are a heavy gauge wire so you wont miss them, strip some sheilding off of each one and touch them together with your ignition in the acc/on position, does the starter try to turn? (it wont start unless the clutch is pressed) if so your ignition switch is bad, just take some leads off of those two wires and run them to a momentary switch that will carry the voltage and use that switch to start your car

I was driving when my engine just stoped i tryed to start it but it wont start the engine will turn over but it just wont start

it is possible the points in the distributer cap have failed, or worn. check your spark plugs (you will need 2 people for this) or even just your leads by having one person turn the engine over and the other holding 1 lead (just take one off at a time) against the engine block it should throw a spark and arc to the block ******DONT TOUCH THE SPARK IT HURTS****** if you dont get a spark then it is most likly a distributer problem. Hope thes helps

The engin will not turn over intermittently. I had the dealership check the batter, the starter and the alternator. All came out good. They could not get the car not to start so they could not fix it. ...

Try starting in Neutral instead of Park. If this works, the transmission range switch (sometimes called a neutral safety switch) is faulty in Park.

Next, you can try a remote start switch (available at auto parts stores) or a jumper wire to bypass the ignition switch. First make sure transmission is in park or neutral. You will be jumping from the battery positive terminal to the starter solenoid. The starter solenoid terminal has a black wire with a white stripe connected to it. (This terminal is visible just to the left of the automatic transmission dipstick tube.) Remove this wire and connect one end of the remote start switch wire (or jumper wire) to it. Connect the other end of the remote start switch wire to the battery positive terminal. Activate the remote start switch and see if the starter will crank. (If using a jumper wire, briefly touch the other end to the battery positive terminal and see if cranking will occur). If the starter works then you have a problem in the ignition switch, or starter cut-out relay.

The starter cut-out relay is located on the back of the driver's under dash fuse/relay box in the left wall kick panel. The ignition switch also has wire leads that plug into the back of this same fuse box. You can disconnect the wire leads and test the ignition switch with on ohm meter from this point.

My olds 1992 88 stopped running. changed the fuel filter and drained all of the old fuel (which wasuper rusty and contaminated). the car seems to want to start now but wont. i have been told to change the...

have you got a good spark- take out a plug and lay it plugged into the lead on top of the engine so the tip is earthed (touching the engine) and crank it over - DO NOT TOUCH THE PLUG WHILST CRANKING AS IT GENERATES MASSIVE ELECTRICAL VOLTAGE..............
if it sparks its probably a fuel problem still and not ignition/electrical.

95 jetta wont start unless you pop start it i changed the starter i have all the power just when i turn the key nothing

check your fuses under the hood and under the dash
check polarity of battery (if you unhooked booth leads)
is the battery any good?
you probly conected the leads to the starter incorectly (recheck them)

(the following asume your tur n key ignition system is functioning properly)
to test your tur n key system simply hook up a test light to the small lead running to the starter cylynoid "while the wire is disconected" and have a friend turn the ignition over. [dont furget to test the test light first lol]

or even got the wrong starter completly (usaly a store problem)
did you " bench test" the new/used starter befor installing it ?
iv goten brand new starters doa

is the ground strap hooked up ? is there corosian on the battery posts or any of the high amperage conections?

is the cylynoid on the starter or somewhere else under the hood?
cautiously try to bypass the cylynoid ie run a hot wire to the small lead on the cylynoid
(this can usaly be done by jumping from the main red wire on the starter to the hot lead of the cylynoid)

notes: when bypassing the ingnition system (jumping the cylynoid)
DO NOT have the ignition in the on postion and it is best to remove the lead from the cylynoid (incase of a short in the wire's some place)

if nothing remove the large red wire on the cylynoid and touch it directly to the starter lead itself (there will be a fair amount of spark when doing this its normal) but make shur you are conecting to the starter lead and not a gound point as this will cause exsesive sparking that isn't good
dose the starter tur n the engine over
back track untill you find the fault be it starter itself,cyclynoid,wiring,blown fuse,corosion,bad battery,

still cant find the problem take it to a shop!
hope i helped yah
