Try removing the coil pack and see if its cracked ,it might not be throwing out enough power to spark under compression .

    induction timing light,but if sensor was loose it wouldnt spark,either fuel enrichment device is playing up or as you say an ECU problem,iam not doing a call out tonight to have a look, flights a bit dear of late from spain.Call a mobile mechanic to have a look and if he cant fix it dont pay him because if cant fix it hes not a mechanic .It has to be something simple like the plug come off of air flow meter or the temperature sensor plug .Trouble is i repair all makes of cars,trucks and evan tractors ,outboards as well but the trouble is iam getting old timers i think i seem to have job remembering recent things but i can still remember fixing morris minors and ford anglias .sorry i cant be of much use

Wont Start - No Spark


Older VW's and Audi's are notarious for this type of behavior. You actaully need a Vag or good diagnostic tester to tell you which plugs are mis-firing. You will need to replace a coil-pac or two. VW's issued a recall notice about 3 months ago about this issue and intends to re-imburse owners on certain models and years for coil-pac repalcement. After market coil-pacs should cost less than $50.00 each. Hope this helps.

My 1995 chevy corsica ran fine one day and the next morning wouldnt start. It trys to turn over but wont start. Spark plugs and coil packs are fine. Fuel filter is fine. What could cause this?


Try tapping on your PCM behind your glove box,also are you getting fuel pressure and a good blue spark at the plugs when cranking the engine?

My mazda tribute 04 want start it trys


there is a fuel rail on your motor in the fuel rail you will find a cap it looks like a tire valve cap
some cars black plastic some light silver metal
find the cap and take it off push down on the schrader valve to see if you have fuel preasure b4 you start changing parts
if it has fuel but it isnt a huge amount
check the fuel presure reg

by having a friend turn on the ignition and while they do that push the valve down if huge fule ammount or huge presure then start looking at the FPR
if it has good or a lot of presure then start by checking the spark
if you can borrow an obd2 tester canadian tire loan a tool and you can borow eithor cheep or free from them
remember you have friends too so dont for get to ask if they have or hnow anyony who might have that you can borrow it
