Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

My car suddenly wont start, it cranks but no ignition..

There was a pop right before the car malfuncioned and now it wont start. I sprayed a little starter fluid and it wants to ignight but it quits after a few seconds. I thought it was the gas pump so I replaced it and no luck. I took off the spark plugs and two of them were full of oil. What could be the problem and/or solution??

96 toyota camry. Replaced fuel pump, strainer and filter. Will crank if you spray starting fluid in it, but wont run. Any ideas?


Check for spark. Start at the coil, spark at the plug, Could be the coil or crank position sensor. Check codes.

Please help! a few months ago I was driving my Nissan almera when it suddenly cut off. I thought it was fuel and refilled but since then it just cranks but never starts. have changed cam/crank senor but...


Don't forget to check for spark. What I usually do is spray some starting fluid in the air cleaner. If it ignites you have a fuel issue. If it doesn't your probly not getting spark.

Why would turning the steering wheel while cranking engine gets my car to start?


The ignition switch in the column most likely has a break in it. So when you move the steering wheel, it moves the wire so it completes the connection when you turn the key. Have the ignition switch replaced.

Car wont start


Does it have spark at the spark plugs. If it has spark is it getting gas. Try spraying a little starting fluid in it, does it try to start? Then it isn't getting fuel. Is the fuel pump running when the ignition is first turned on? Fuel pump relay, fuse, fuel pump itself. Just telling you some things to check so people can give a better informed answer.

Lots of crank no ignition a little sputter but no start


If an engine cranks but refuses to start, it lacks ignition, fuel or compression. Was it running fine but quit suddenly? The most likely causes here would be a failed fuel pump

Power door locks will not remain locked, they pop unlocked after a few seconds


This is a problem with the ignition switch, it thinks the key is still in the ignition, the internal switch may be stuck , start by spraying a little silicone into key hole then put key in and start car then remove key, do this a few times and spray a few times but just a little spray. hope this helps.

I have a 1993 Plymouth Laser and it wont start. It will turn over but no spark. I tried to do the on ACC on ACC On and the check engine will not blink any codes. Any suggestions?


crank sensor, PCM, or Ignition module could be bad You car may have a ign fuse or ecm fuse that could of popped. Now if your not sure it has spark then you could have a fuel issue. If someones sprays a little brake cleaner in the Throttle body and it starts then you have a pump issue. If it still doeant fire up then you know for sure you have a spark issue.

Im gettting a code 10,141,and 152


Try a crank sensor. Next time it cuts off pour or spray water on it and if it cranks right up you will know what you need. Check those codes again the numbers do not come up.

2001 chevy silverado won't start when warm


Possible weak spark from ignition coil or low fuel pressure due to weak pump. Try spraying carb clean into intake throttle body when problem is present. If vehicle will start and run with a little spray then fuel pump is failing.

Truck wont start


1.) spray engine starting fluid into air intake ---remove air filter if necessary.
2.) if ignition only on this spray, then seek bad fuel supply problem.
3.) if no ignition, check for spark.
