    Have you checked for fuel pressure? Spray a small amount of starter fluid in the throttle body then try to start the engine. If it tries to start, you may have a fuel delivery problem.

    If the engine tries to start, let me know and we will go from there.

    Let me know.

    Regards.

Pull the electrical plug off the fuel injector and use a voltage meter or a little side marker bulb from a light and put in the plug crank the car over if the voltage does not go up or the bulb does not light then the moduel on the bottom of the coil pack is fried and needs replaced to get power to the fuel injectors good luck hope this helps

My 90 acura integra wont start it turns over but wont fire i changed the distributor,and spark plugs,i am getting fuel but it just cranks and cranks but wont start,the cause i dont know was driving down...


Well, something is missing. Your engine needs fuel, ignition, and compression to run. You need to findout which of these systems is malfunctioning before anybody can tell you why your engine won't start.
If there is no spark, I would check the ignitor in the distributor first. There are other possible causes, but this isthe most common.

If there is no fuel, I would suspect a bad fuel pump. (you can check this by spraying a SMALL amount of starting fluid in the intake and see if the engine fires.

If there is no spark and no fuel, I would suspect a broken timing belt.

My 95 lexus gs 300 wont start


Try to replace the fuel filter and then check the spark plugs. Mke sure to clean the spark plugs and after you clean the spark plugs and still the same it wont start replace the spark plugs and check the distributor as well.

Car turns over but won't crank. spark plugs are


Turning over and cranking are often the same thing, so Im not sure what your asking... Do you mean the car turns over but wont fire, or start? If thats the case and as you say the plugs are getting spark, then your problem is gonna be the fuel pump 99% of the time... Try this little trick, have a friend hit the fuel tank from under the car with a NON metalic hammer (ie a rubber or wooden mallet or chunk of solid wood etc) while your trying to start the engine. If the car fires up, then dont risk doing that trick again as it probably wont work twice, and get it to your mechanic to get a new fuel pump installed. If it doesnt work, (it really is a 50/50 thing) then get it towed and have the fuel pump changed as its still probably the problem...
