I have a Ford Expedition XLT with a crank no start I changed the fuel pump and check all the fuses can somebody else tell me what may be the problem


A "crank, no start" condition is usually because either gas or spark has been lost. You changed the pump, but now you need to verify that gas at the proper pressure is at the engine's fuel rail. You would need a fuel pressure gauge tester for that- Autozone and others loan them, too. Or, do you hear the pump turn on with the key cycled to on, not start? It should turn on for 2 seconds to pressurize the fuel lines and the fuel rail. If it turns on, probably at proper pressure since you have a new pump, but never hurts to check the pressure. If it doesn't turn on for those 2 seconds with key in ON, then you will have to diagnose the fuel pump circuit. Post back for that.
Next thing to check is spark. Buy a simple spark tester at the parts store (real cheap) and hook it up to a spark plug wire, crank the engine over, and watch for a strong blue spark. Good idea to check more than just one plug wire-sometimes a bad coil will lose spark at a particular cylinder. If you have good spark (a blue, snapping spark), then assume the ignition system is good, and so then you would need to verify the injectors are putting gas into the cylinders-post back if you need to test the injector circuit.
If no spark, then the ignition system has a failure-this can be from a bad Ignition Control Module, a bad crank position sensor, or cam position sensor, among other things. Good luck.

Pt cruiser wont start. checked battery, starter , releighs and ignition, and they seem fine. no codes come up when turning the key 3 times


To do self diag on a pt u need to start with ignition off. Hold trip button in for the odometer keeping trip button held down turn ignition key to run then release trip. This will also run a self test on instrument cluster. Codes will be displayed in the odometer at the end of test

Sounds like your fuel pump is about to fail. Have pressure check run on fuel pump. If low then replace.

2004 grand am se v6 sometimes wont start unless gas pedal is pushed


when you say -turn over do you mean firing-turning over to me means the starter motor is cranking or turning over-firing is when combustion happens in the cylinders-as far as the cranking continuing-try some wd40 in the ignition switch-it may be hanging up-Denny

2003 kia Sedona won't. start


If this is a sudden occurrence and nothing suspicious happened prior, you most likely lost either gas or spark to the engine. You need to check for both.

Do you hear the fuel pump in the gas tank buzz on for a couple of seconds when you turn the ignition key to ON? Unless the fuel pump turns on and puts gas under high pressure at the fuel injectors, the engine cylinders won't get gas to start. Correct fuel pressure is crucial to know if you have a fuel pump (or fuel filter) problem. If the pressure is correct, it is probably not a fuel problem but a spark problem, although there are less common instances where a fuel injector circuit may malfunction.

The ignition system not producing spark at the spark plugs is the other common problem of no starts. Buy a cheap spark tester at a parts store, plug it into one of your spark plug wires, then crank the engine over and watch for a strong blue spark. You might need a helper to do this. If you see a consistent spark, the ignition system is probably good, although you should probably check more than just one plug wire-sometimes one bad ignition coil in a coil pack will cause no starting. Good luck.

Car dies while driving, now it won't start sometimes


Could be a fuel pump that is going bad. Some times when fuel pumps go bad they cavitate and pump not just gas but also air. If you get too much air in the line and not enough gas the car won't start. Have a mechanic check your fuel line pressure.
