Question about Cars & Trucks

1987 Pontiac 6000 4 cylinder - I have spark (new plugs and wires) I am getting fuel, car will turn over but won't start. Brand new battery, the starter will crank over several times and then the starter acts like it is having a hard time cranking over. We installed a new injector, new fuel filter and replaced the ignition switch on the steering column. HELP!

SOURCE: Car will not crank sometimes unless you turn the key many times.

Check battery connections. Sometimes a weak connection will fail under very high loads like starting.

SOURCE: 1995 AUDI 90 CS - Hard to start... spark & fuel OK

Have you tried replacing the starter? I know starters can go bad if the car is not started or run for a long time.

I am getting the same car, with the same issue.. it sat for 2 yrs and won't start.

My mechanic told me it is probably a starter.

Why doesn't it start?


Battery connections must be dirty or loose...does it jump start? I'll bet the lights and radio still work...if connections are clean and tight, you will need to check the alternator...Hope this helps.

I have a yzf600r. it started yesterday. but then i put in a new battery and niw it won't start. Its like its not getting any gas.


so I take it that the 600 is turning over with the new battery. Did you check the fuel lever? You might have turned it to off when you dropped in the new battery. Otherwise start trouble shooting, Is it getting spark? Take one of the spark plugs out and put the lead wire back on it then touch the bottom the spark plug to metal and turn it over...you should see some spark.Do this to all spark plugs. Then on to fuel, take the fuel feed line off, turn it over and see if fuel sperts out of the line. If all thats good, I would remove the carb. and clean it. Hope this kinda helps :)

My 1987 Ford Bronco II won't start


First you always test things & never replace anything

When you understand how things work & how to test
them,then they have to fail a test in order to need replacing

I would think Fuel Pump--if it quite while driving
Put a gauge on the motor if you have a shrader
valve to do so

Seldom do you need to replace a dist
The parts inside can be diagnosed & replaced
if you can source them

Things like plugs,wires & such you leave until you
know if you have fuel pressure,spark & so on.

Once a vehicle gets to 20 years of age you start
checking for wire corrosion such as around fusible links

Never forget the battery & it's cables & the internal
corrosion possible there

Worn ignition switch a possible

You say won't start,so I assume the engine
does turn over?

Isnt getting any power to the fuel pump


Should be a designated fuse for the power to the fuel pump I'm not familuar with this model but some vehicals with electric fuel pumps have a reset swich on the pump or under the hood on the fire wall.

Won't start


Start with what is missing to start the engine
Do you have fuel pressure?
Do you have spark?
Is the valve timing ok?

No fuel pressure


You should check the electrical system i.e do you have spark at the spark plug ends? If no then work on this. If yes then remove the spark plugs, put half a teaspoon of fuel into each cylinder and put the plugs back. Try starting the engine. If it does then fuel isn't getting to cylinders. If it doesn't then you need a valve or complete overhaul job,

Hi, are you sure your fuel pump is running? I'm assuming you have the 4-cylinder 2.5 liter engine. The ECU and the injector are powered by the same wire as the ignition system. See diagram below.
