My Toyota Vigo Hilux develop smoking then was leaking oil then someone tried to fix and now cannot start at all.

all that , scares me, sounds like car is falling apart,
why not get it serviced? golly gee?
no year stated, fail 1
no engine stated, (gas or diesel or displacement size)
smoking at tail pipe end or just where.? and hot and cold engine?
or just smokes on hills,
NO start, well, does it crank, no car with A./T starts unless cranked,
automatic trans, is it? (a key fact that)
  1. if it cranks and the engine is gas, then spark is 2nd.
  2. got spark to all cylinders, ?
  3. if spark is good, and timed correct, next is test fuel
  4. does test fuel start engine? y/n
  5. yes, the fueling is bad,
  6. no? then engine is bad or spark was bad.
  7. tell more get more..... its not hard, each step , every test is by ORDER, not guessing.

Coyote crx 50cc kids bike will not start, its a pull cord start and i have never managed to start it from new. It has fuel, it gets a spark, although it doesnt seem to be a very strong spark. Please s

Hi, Assuming the bike has been run before you owned it, pull off the exhaust pipe and try starting it. If it starts and runs, don't let it it run much more than 10 seconds or so. This will tell you that you have a classical clogged exhaust system. The pipes on little two-stroke engines are very small and easily get filled with wet gooey carbon deposits. White kerosene is affordable and works good for cleaning. Plug on end of pipe and fill from the other end untill it is full and let soak for a period. The best approach is to take apart the pipe to clean really thoroughly. Hope this helps. Denis

1995 Jeep grand cherokee, drove fine yesterday. No signs of anything wrong. Now this a.m. starter engaged and everything seemed fine, but would not ignite and turn over.

The engine needs 3 things to run: fuel, spark and compression. It is most likely either no spark or no fuel. You can check the spark by taking out one of the spark plugs and ground it out on a piece of metal on the engine. Have someone crank the engine and watch the spark plug for a blue spark. It is easier to see if it is in the shade or it is dark. One way to check to see if it is a problem with no fuel is to get a can of starting fluid. Gain access to the intake by taking out the air cleaner. Spray a shot or 2 of the starting fluid in the intake while someone cranks the engine. Don't keep spraying the starting fluid for a long time because it can wash the oil off of the cylinder walls. If the engine is getting spark but no fuel, the starting fluid will cause the engine to run for a few seconds. If it runs for any time at all then you will know that there is spark and the problem is with the fuel system. After you determine if it is a spark or fuel problem you will have to diagnose what part of the system is causing your problem.
