I would check the coil first to see if you are getting spark...if you arent getting spark then you need to check the cam and crankshaft sensors

My cr 80 won't start but it's popping like it won't s to replaced spark plug an couple over things please help me sum one


Hi Lennard:
Cars and trucks section but CR80 sounds like a motorcycle. right?
You need two basic things:
1) Spark - pull the spark plug, connect the lead, hold against the head, and spin it over. Spark shoulld be hot and blue.
2) Fuel - Drain tank and fill with fresh gas
Drain and flush carb
If it has a filter, make sure that fuel is flowing through it.
Try a "normal" start........... choke, kick over 5 times. If no start, remove plug and check for fuel in cylinder. Wet plug means no spark. Dry plug means no fuel.
If dry plug try priming the carb (give it a squirt of gas with choke off)
It should try to start.
To let me know how you're doing, reply as a comment on this post.
Cheers.

Probably gas or spark related. Check for spark on a spark plug wire, or on a couple of plug wires would be better. If you have a strong blue spark, then the coils are good, ignition is good, and you will need to see if gas is getting up to the engine. Do you hear the fuel pump come on?

I have an Audi 80 1.9 E, that will not start. I have spark to no1 cylinder but will not fire at all.


Are you saying that there is spark at no 1 but not on the other plugs. Check your distributor rotor to see if its not broken at the tightening base. When this happens the engine will usually only fire on the one plug that it is pointing at

The car will pop alittle when you try to start it...It wants to start but wont..replaced the fuel filter,plugs.I have spark to all plugs..I can squirt gas into the intake and it will run but will not idle...


usually when a vehicle backfires, it is caused by the timing or a bad crank sensor. symtoms of a bad coolant sensor are--poor cold idle, stalling, ( rich mixture,retarded timing) slow idle speed, cold hesitation or stumble, and poor fuel milage. check coolant sensor first. good-luck!!

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 1991 Audi 80 will not start, engine cranks


Sounds to me like you may have left the air temp sensor or something electronic disconnected - Distributor - MAF sensor - go back and check and make sure that there's not an electrical pigtail somewhere hanging off - a vacuum leak wouldn't keep it from starting unless it were major - and your AUDI is mechanical injection I think - so fuel pull isn't a problem - check those connectors - let me know??? Thanks

Start and stop audi


check your crank position sensor for resistance and check if the resistance comes out to what it suppose to be.if not then you need a new one...i think the range would be 2200 to 3000ohms but i would refer that you check the specified resistance before you check it. i hope that would solve your problem
