Hi , If your spark plugs are firing a good blue spark and is getting fuel it should start . I would check all the plugs to make sure there firing if they are and I would say it has skipped time so I would check the timing belt on it .

It is getting gas and fire put new plugs and wires the fire is weak but still will not start


By "fire," I assume you may mean SPARK. If the spark is weak, replace the coil pack.

THE ENGINE WAS OVERHAUL AFTER THAT IT FAILING TO START JUST CRANKING BUT PROMISING ,THE SPARK IS THERE WHY PUTTING MORE FUEL ON THE PLUGS


Did you check for spark at more than one or two spark plugs? The spark is there, and the spark plugs are wet with gas? Is it flooded? Or is it getting too much gas? For a flooded engine, you know to open the intake valve wide open by holding the gas pedal to the floor, and cranking for up to 15 seconds? This will let a lot of air in and clear out most of the excess gas. Or have you tried this already?
Spark, gas, and compression: that is all that the cylinders need to run. In a well-timed engine, that is. A little gas/air mixture, then compression, then a spark is delivered and it runs. One of those three things is not right or missing for your engine not to start. Or you will have to recheck timing.

Turns over will not start


Depending upon your level of expertise I would say pull a spark plug and look for a spark.

Any gas combustion engine requires a fuel mixture and spark to "fire" If you know your spark plugs are firing, then the problem is most likely going to be fuel flow.

If it doesn't fire AT ALL. and you are sure you have a good spark, then its probably going to be a computer controlled fuel flow issue.

Are you getting any "service engine soon" lights? Got a really good charge on the battery? Is the engine cold like below freezing? And I gotta ask.... are your sure there is enough gas in the tank? If its low and sitting on a hill its possible its not getting any gas.

My 2000 Chrysler 300m wont start it turns over but wont fire its getting gas but wont fire


Are you certain it's getting gas, does it smell flooded?
Pull one of the plugs, see if its wet after cranking.
Ground plug and check for spark, if no spark, problem could be crank sensor or coil packs.

My 1993 lx mustang will trun over but will not start. gets gas got fire, what next?


If it has fuel, spark and compression it has to fire even if it won't start did it jump timing? the belt or timing chain it would still backfire. Have a fire extinguisher
handy After you crank the engine put a rag over the schrader valve and push the pin down like on a bike tire gas will shoot into the rag if it doesn't you are not getting fuel. pick up an inline spark checker and see if it sparks every time the engine cranks over

TOYOTA CELICA TURNS ON BUT DOES NOT START??


(THERE,S NUMBEROUS WAYS WHY IT WILL NOT CRANK ) NO1 CHECK TO SEE IF IT,S GETTING GAS , THERE,S A PRESSURE RELEASE VALVE LOOKS LIKE A TIRE STEAM WITH A BLACK CAP ON IT PRESS IT IN WITH PHILLIP SCREW DRIVER AND IF THE GAS SHOOT OUT IT,S GETTING GAS ) NO.2 TAKE A OLD SPARK PLUG ,DISCONNECT ONE OF YOUR SPARK WIRES AND CONNECT TO THE LOOSE SPARK AND TURN THE CAR OVER TO SEE IF IT,S GETTING FIRE ,AND IF IT,S NOT GETTING FIRE TO THE PLUGS IT,S YOUR CRANK POSTION SENSOR ,AND IF IT,S GETTING FIRE TO THE PLUGS . TAKE A TEST LIGHT WITH THE SWITCH TURN TO ON AND IF IT LIGHTS UP THAT MEAN THE CRANK POSTION SENOR IS WORKING ,BUT IF YOU ARE GETTING FIRE FROM ALL OVER THERE,S ONE THING TO CHECK AND THATS YOUR DISTRUBATOR ,STICK THE TEST LIGHT IN WHERE ONE OF THE SPARK WIRES ARE AT AND IF IT LIGHT,S UP THE DISTRUBATOR IS BAD ,AND JUST REPLACE IT ,OR CHECK FOR YOUR FUSE RELAY TO YOUR FUEL PUMP AND THAT SHOULD DO IT

1986 ford club wagon xlt in line 6 300. Doesn't fire. Has spark, getting gas, repaired broken wire going to the module. Put coil and different distributor in. Wondering if it could be in the ignition...


If it has spark and is getting gas then there is no reason why it should not start. How do you know it is getting gas?? Have you tried using wd40 directly into the carb/intake to see if it will try to fire up?

Motor turns over but will not start, seems to be getting gas, & spark


I don't have enough info to give you a specific answer so I've listed a bunch of possible problem that could cause your engine to roll over but not start.
Check the battery and connections, a weak battery or bad connections can cause a weak spark and stop the engine from firing.
Fuel pump or fuel filter, low gas pressure can cause to lean of a air/fuel mixture for the engine to start.
Bad gas, old gas or water in the gas can stop the engine from firing.
Bad or fouled spark plugs, could be caused by bad gas.
Ignition wiring problems, can cause weak or unreliable spark.
Bad, poorly connected or misconnected spark plug wires. Even 2 wire out of order can stop the engine from firing.
Oily spark plug wires, can cause the spark to fire at the wrong cylinder or misfire.
Worn, damaged or wet ignition components.
