It could be a lot of things.... did the car just die? was the weather wet? does it turn over fast..? is there any spark getting to the plugs? plug a spark tester into the plug wire and set it to a low gap .030" see if the arc jumps the gap. if it does pull a spark plug out and look at it. it should be golden brown with a fairly square electrode. the ground should be over top of the electrode not eroded away . can you smell fuel when u try to start the car? when u crank the car over and it doesnt start are the spark plugs wet?

2001 caviler wont start after stalling while driveing


If the cranking rpms sound faster, check the timing chain/belt. Did you check for applicable trouble codes? Did you check fuel injector pulse? You used a gage and checked proper fuel pressure?

Car Starts Really Rough.


Check the fuel/air sensor and air filter. When you first start the car only press the accelerator pedal once. If while turning the ignition switch you here a grinding noise that would be your starter going out. The smell of fuel signals that your car is either flooded from pressing pedal or fuel mixture is incorrect. Hope this helps.

02 caviler.. cranks but will not start.. have replaced crank sensor,fuel relay sensor.ignition module as well as spark plug module... and replaced battery


Squirt starting fluid in intake and try to start if it starts and then dies you have a fuel delivery problem. Make sure you check the fuses for a blown fuse namely fuel pump or fuelpump relay. If it doesnt start after squirting starting fluid in the intake check for spark at the plug wires and coil.

2001 Ford Focus stopped running while i was driving and wont start. Makes a churning sound but no power is going to engine. I changed the ignition coil, still wont turn on. Any suggestions?


Can you explain more so I can help. What do you mean still wont turn on, engines doesn't start or starter motor doesn't turn. Have u taken out a spark plug and connected it to the cable put the end of the spark plug to a ground and make someone turn on the engine for a few seconds you should see some blue sparks. Carefully use gloves. If no sparks, spark plug is bad next thing to check instead of putting the spark plug in the cable put Philips screwdirver put the screwdriver near a ground not touching about one inch make someone turn the engine for a couple of second you should see the spark jumping from the screwdriver to the ground, If there are no sparks ignition coil or spark plug cables are not good. But u say u changed ignition coil so maybe your cables are not good. There is a connector near the ignition coil disconnect it and turn ignition switch on measure the voltage you should have in between 12vdc + or - .5 vdc if no voltage present there is a blown fuse, Check for it
