SOURCE: engine died & wont start no spark ignition coil tested good

try your ignition module in the distributor much more likely. just install rebuilt distributor if that is the problem , if you just replace module the main distributor assem will **** out shortly after.
Make sure you check for broken timing belt also it is one of those two!

It could be that your fuel pump is not getting enough fuel to the engine to start it. Is your starter turning over or trying to start the engine.

GIVE IT A SHOT OF STARTING FLUID IN INTAKE IF IT RUNS FOR A MINUTE THE CONTROLER FOR INJECTIORS HAS PROBLEMS IF NOT CHECK FOR SPARK AT SPARK PLUGS THIS WILL TELL YOU REALLY WHAT SYSTEM YOUR HAVEING PROBLEMS WITH. USALLY IF THERES FUEL AT INJECTORS ITS A SPARK PROBLEM GOOD LUCK

Check to see if you have spark, if you do, and still it does not start, then you may think that fuel is not getting to it. At this point, use some starting fluid and spray it at the throttle opening. That should start it for a few seconds and give you the answer.

Ny 1989 chevy blazer S-10 V6 2WD won't st,art,


I don't think 3 months makes stale gas, maybe year old gas, but not your short time. And if not mistaken, I think you have throttle body injection on an '89 chevy, although chevy always was a little behind the curve on new improvements to cars. hint, hint.
The computer has everything to do with it. it controls ignition timing, it controls spark, it controls the fuel pump and the injectors. Since it won't start with starter fluid or gas, next step is to look into the ignition system. Check for spark on a couple of spark plug wires. If you have a blue, snapping spark, you can assume your ignition system is working well enough to start the engine. Take a spare spark plug or pull one of your plugs from engine, attach the plug wire onto it, and lay the plug on a metal piece of the top of engine-the spark plug hex and threads is the natural ground for the plug, so if you lay the threads on a metal piece, or hold it tight against a steel bolt, you can observe the spark jumping the gap, and no danger of getting shocked. But if you hold it, just in case, wear a glove or wrap a heavy cloth or rag around the wire. Remember, a blue energetic spark has to be seen to verify good ignition. Oh yes, you need a helper to crank the engine over while you watch for spark. If no spark, and you have a distributor, check the coil wires output at the end that connects to center top of distributor.Pull it from distributor and hold the metal end terminal no more than 1/4 inch from a ground source, a bolt or the frame, or an engine bracket. Helper has to crank the engine over, and watch for good blue spark. If no spark there-ignition: coil, crank position sensor (or maybe a pickup coil inside your distributor-same function), ignition control module, computer, and all the associated wiring.
If coil has spark, but none at plug wire ends, inspect closely the distributor cap and rotor. not passing current or shorting out there.
So the basics are, to run, the engine needs gas, air, compression, and a timely spark.

I have a Mitsubishi scorpion gt600 won't start no


1, a place for a period of time is how long? Is bad cold start and hot car is a good start?
2, carburetor car stuffy oil cylinder, just play it. Carburetor car start generally are the problems of fuel injection and ignition timing.
3, the feeling is automatically step on the gas problem, general DianPenChe automatic refueling for oil from didn't cooperate well enough (floor) just can have this kind of feeling. This is a computer training school good.

You need to find out if the fuel pump is working, getting gas up to the engine.
If the pump is working and seen to have good fuel pressure, check ignition by checking for spark.. To work, the engine needs, you know, gas, air, spark, and compression. Why people say, check for gas, check for spark.

Toyota 4runner sr5 won't start its getting gas and spark.


Sounds like the problem is beyond your ability to diagnose

Too much fuel could be a leaking fuel injector or fuel pressure
regulator.

Too much gas & a no start isn't really the issue

Did it start & run before you did the wires,I would check your work
& mark the wires with a pen & also have diagram on paper before
you start a job like that. Especially when if you have no reference
material.

You put a mechanical fuel pressure gauge on a running engine
& the apply vacuum with a hand pump to regulator to watch for
pressure change,eg: pump pressure vs: regulator press

2003 kia Sedona won't. start


If this is a sudden occurrence and nothing suspicious happened prior, you most likely lost either gas or spark to the engine. You need to check for both.

Do you hear the fuel pump in the gas tank buzz on for a couple of seconds when you turn the ignition key to ON? Unless the fuel pump turns on and puts gas under high pressure at the fuel injectors, the engine cylinders won't get gas to start. Correct fuel pressure is crucial to know if you have a fuel pump (or fuel filter) problem. If the pressure is correct, it is probably not a fuel problem but a spark problem, although there are less common instances where a fuel injector circuit may malfunction.

The ignition system not producing spark at the spark plugs is the other common problem of no starts. Buy a cheap spark tester at a parts store, plug it into one of your spark plug wires, then crank the engine over and watch for a strong blue spark. You might need a helper to do this. If you see a consistent spark, the ignition system is probably good, although you should probably check more than just one plug wire-sometimes one bad ignition coil in a coil pack will cause no starting. Good luck.
