SOURCE: Turns over wont start. Changed fuel filter has

If youve ran through everything as in the spark if its getting fuel, if it has compression remove number one place a finger over the hole and have someone turn it over if it tries to push your finger out then it has compression be careful dont stick you finger in if you dont have to it can push it out with lots of forced air. If it is none of those it might also be the timing a slight bump to the distributer and knock off the timing on some models(keep plug in boot for number one cylinder place plug against metal on engine have someone turn it over if thats sparking timing might be ok. So if you have fuel getting to it, spark and compession it might also be this little bugger known as an inertia switch usually found on the right passenger side it depends on the vehicle as to where exactly and if it is equipt with one. press the little button to reset the ball bearing to reestablish contact

You've already eliminated the spark plug & wireset, distributor cap & rotor.
Sounds like your car needs a tune-up, specifically, the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve, and/of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.

Components checked/replaced during a tune-up are:
air filter
motor oil
motor oil filter
breather filter
fuel filter(s)
fuel strainer
PCV valve
EGR valve
spark plugs
spark plug wires
ECM or distributor cap & rotor
cabin air filter
transmission oil filter
transmission oil
engine coolant
check all vacuum hoses and lines

Troubleshooting the no-start condition - from the 1990 Mitsu Mighty Max Repair Manual:

Priority Action Part Type -- Cause
1 Inspect Battery -- Battery Discharged or Faulty.
2 Inspect Battery Cable -- Corroded, Broken, Shorted or Poorly Connected Battery Cable.
3 Inspect Distributor Cap -- Distributor Cap Cracked or Burned.

5 Inspect Ignition Coil -- Faulty Ignition Coil.
6 Inspect Wireset -- Worn, Damaged or Faulty Spark Plug Wire(s).

8 Inspect Starter -- Starter Motor Faulty.
9 Inspect Fuel Pump -- Low Fuel Pressure.
10 Inspect Solenoid Switch -- Faulty Starter Solenoid Switch.
11 Inspect Fuel Pump Relay -- Faulty Fuel Pump Relay.
12 Inspect Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator -- Faulty Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator.
13 Inspect Ignition Switch -- Improperly Connected or Faulty Ignition Switch.
14 Inspect Starter Drive -- Faulty Starter Drive.
15 Inspect Fuel Injector -- Dirty or Worn Fuel Injectors.
16 Inspect Fuel Pump Strainer -- Clogged or Dirty Fuel Pump Strainerat.
17 Inspect Engine Control Computer -- Incorrect Operating Information Being Delivered and Sent From The EEC.

My 1992 Mighty Max, will not start, its getting plenty of fire, but I don't tkink its getting fuel, what could be causing this?


If not getting fuel then the normal areas to check is the fuel filter, fuel pump but first the obvious is to make sure you have fuel in the tank. If this engine has a carburetor, remove the air filter houseing and pour a small amount of gas into it. Try starting it. If it starts and then dies it is a fuel delivery problem. If it wont start even temporily then I'd check things like wires, plugs, timing, etc (stuff to do with delivering a spark).

Car wont start


hi its probably dragged sh#t from your tank, is your petrol pump external if so,so is the fuel filter. change it, its easier than trying to flush it. once thats done. foot on excelerator and turn over if problem solved car will start within 20 seconds max. if however its air locked, crack the fuel line open at the injectors and turn over with some one watching for petrol to come through as soon as it does stop and tighten up injectors, car should then start, if it still doesnt start it could be muck actually in your in injectors, they will need taking out and cleaning,,,,but we will get to that if all others fail, please let me know what happens, i hope this helps
