Try the dizzy. The plug on the side of it have a habit of packing it in. Especially the part on the dizzy. i think you can replace just that part. I would just change the dizzy. make sure you get your timing right and you are getting fuel to your injector rail.

Why my 2005 ba ford falcon wont start?


Its either no spark or no gas. Remove the fuel line and carefully crank it over..are you getting any fuel? If not possibly clogged fuel filter or bad fuel pump. If yes, are the spark plugs firing. Remove number one plug lead hold close to any metal surface on engine, crank over ..spark there..strong or weak spark? No spark check coil and associated parts.

Car wont start but kicks over


Since you do have A fully charged battery and also you do receive fuel smell after crank start and the car wont start,either you do have an Ignition fault means not giving the spark,advice remove the spark plugs and check whether are wet with fuel,see whether are black,if so change them and before start check by leaving an HT lead off a spark and use one of the old ones connected to the HT lead and earthed to the engine,ask somebody to start the engine checking for any spark comes out. If yes then put the HT lead back to the new spark on the engine and try. If ther is not any spark,then you have to go backwards from the HT leads to distributor,Rotor Arm,Electronic igniter,Coil if is fitted,Fuse and relay. Good Luck.

My 91 mitsubishi gto wont start and strong smell of fuel


Start by making sure you have spark to the spark plugs. If not you may have a problem with the plug wires or coil. It's also possible you're not getting gas to the engine possibly from a faulty fuel pump.
If you change the fuel pump be sure to replace the fuel filter also.

1991 Honda Civic Won't Start


Try doing an ohms test on your fuel injectors. Sounds like 1 or 2 could be bad.

Wont start


First take a time out and recharge the battery (using a battery charger, not another vehicle) A discharged battery can buffer enough amperage that ignition system can't function correctly if using a jump start.
Second, check spark. If lots of fuel has gotten down to plugs, you should remove and dry them off as well.If no spark, check that 12 is reaching coil. If not, you need to determine why.
There are further tests, but start with what i've outlined before going further. If you find nothing, I'll try to help with the rest.

1991 Corsica dies after being put in gear.


Hi

You need to get two things checked. Ignition and Fuel.

Ignition: typically in this order ... Start off from sparking plugs ,,, move to leads (get them changed) and on to the ignition coil if there is no spark coming out of it. In case of fuel, the carb needs a clean and a good carb cleaner or fuel treatment (added to the fuel tank) wont do any harm. You should open up the carb filter. Remove it and change it if its dirty. Start the engine rev it up and while its revved up (throttle flap open) spray the carb cleaner or in this will clean the carb cleaner from inside. If the power gradually increases its a clear sign that you need to open up the carb and get the jets cleaned. properly.

Hope that this fixya will get you on the roads soon :)

Regards :)
