Most probably its a low fuel pressure related problem.Get the fuel pressure checked.If its low then this is faulty fuel pump and clogged fuel filter issue.the other possibilities are,-----

A car that cranks over but doesn't start, in many cases will be due to a bad fuel pump, a broken timing belt, an inoperative cam sensor or crank sensor. Also this problems are related to faulty spark plug. Check the spark at spark plugs when you start the car. Do you notice any spark. Actually you should see. If in case there is no spark then it's a spark plug problem. Also the coil pack gives power to spark plug. So check the voltage at coil pack. It will show 12 volt.If there is no voltage noticed at coil pack then its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced.If all the possible options checked out ok then check the car starter. The starter gets power from battery to start the care. If the starter is faulty then it will not let the car to start. Also check and confirm that there is fuel in the car. If it very low fuel then in some cases this causes the problem. Also check and confirm that fuel pump is functioning properly and the fuel filter is not clogged. One of the easiest ways to check for a fuel pump related problem is to spray a little starting fluid into the air intake while trying to start the car. If the car starts momentarily, then there's a good chance the fuel pump is not working or the car is out of gas. You can also listen for the fuel pump's humming sound when the key is first turned on. Also if a inoperative fuel pump is suspected, a good technician will always check to verify there is power and ground being supplied to the pump, to eliminate the possibility of a bad relay or electrical issue. Fuel pressure can be checked with a pressure gage and if there is pressure, pulse can be checked at the fuel injectors in several ways including the most common, with the use of noid lights. If the injectors don't have pulse the engine won't start. ---------- This troubleshooting tips will help you to solve the problem.Thanks.Helpmech.

SOURCE: 2001 BMW 530, car turns over fine but sometimes

sounds like a fuel pump or filter problem. replace filter first its cheaper than a fuel pump.my fuel filter on my 01 530 was under the driver side half way back along the bottom rail of the car.i had to remove the aero plastic with a plug puller that gave me acess to it.try and replace that first. if it doesn work its prob.fuel pump.

SOURCE: First while running engine light came on. Turned off. Now will crank but will not start.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.



From start to end troubleshooting these problems I suggest you to check the help link below and follow its procedure: -----


Mostly all types of car no start problems are discussed here with solutions:---

CAR NO START: ENGINE NOT TURNING OVER:

http://alltypesofpartsreplacing.blogspot.com/2012/11/car-no-start-engine-not-turning-over.html

---------


CHECK ENGINE LIGHT


Check engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer needs to be scanned. These will give the code and as per the error code the further problem can be detected and confirmed. The engine light indicator blinks or remains steady on dash when engine computer noticed any problem with any engine electrically operated components.


For more help, I suggest you to refer the help link provided below. These will let you know more about which areas to look, check, when there is engine light coming up on dash panel.

Lights comme on but wont start ignition or starter


what lights? name them>?
what year caar.
the word is CRANK does the engine crank fast?
no cranks. (if it cant crank it cant start, unless like my M/T pushed or gravity started)
1: check fuses first.
2: jumper cable crank it. that work>?
if not say so.
yes, then your battery was dead for 3 reasons. ask.
no, then the starter need to be hot wired and tested. for bad key line.
will it crank in A/T neutral , not using PARK
as the operators guide shows?

2000 jeep grand cherokee 4.7 has a no crank no start on cold mornings


DOES IT CRANK in NEUTRAL? using fresh PRNDL contacts?
no crank, is easy to diagnose. with just one tool a voltmeter.
12.6vdc is a charged battery , rested, if lower, and not cold its discharged. so charge it or jumper cable crank engine off running donor car. easy huh?
if it cant crank it cant start, (mine can push start or gravity start)
battery cable lugs clean and tight x4 ends? green corrosion?

we then hot wire. the starter solenoid, next. (using old screwdriver as jumper bar)
it cranks now (good starter ) all in 5min work !
it does not crank bad starter.

so it cranks hot wired. good.
so next what is next, easy the KEY line.
the key line runs form the starter to the PRNDL switch and then the KEY switch (crank Start line)
if the car has SKIM immobilizer it cuts fuel not spark.

so i check for 12vdc into PRNDL cranking then key is ok.
if got 12vdc in to PRNLD but not out cranking the switch is bad.
or maladjusted?
its that simple ,with any 10buck DMM off walfarts shelf.

if car is hacked or alarms spliced in, we cant fix it here, its not stock.
same with remote start hack jobs.

My 2003 nisan bluebird had a faulty selenoid switch which was replaced . The engine cranked and run for a while.Now the engine refuses to crank and would sometimes crank and run only after some heavy


no crank
did you first try a live hot jumper cable crank? off a live donor car.
AAA Tow style.?
USING REAL JUMPER CABLES, not china tin foil?l
that be first. ok it always cranks , that means the battery is dead, not charged,or the alternator is shut down or you have phantom drains.

if the battery known good, and charged
we can hotwire the starter, if that works the starter is good.
if not bad.
if it hot wires ok that means the key line is dead.

this is how this is done,
if key line dead, wiggle that silly slushpump shifter lever or try cranking in neuTRAL.
OR HIT STARTER CASING WITH HAMMER 3 TIMES(3 FOR LUCK) CRANK NOW.?

THIS WORKS ON ALL AT CARS.

MY CAR: (X3)
m/t CAN PUSH START, IT , AND GRAVITY START IT.
AND SHORT THE CLUTCH SWITCH TO FIX BAD KEY LINE;.

If all this ok the ignition switch can be bad, or bad power distribution can not teach in 1min.

Why did engine running, won't restart.


lots and lots of reasons, guessing. over 50 (bad engine?)
but does it crank?, no car starts unless it's cranked or
like my car, push started or gravity started (a 6sp m/t)
if engine fails to start , and cranks robustly (fast starter motor)
then
1: never tuned up, running 10 year old spark parts.
2: blow fuse. check fuses.
3:; lost spark, check spark.
4: flooding or loss of fueling. to unflood any engine, crank at wideopen throttle (oper, guide tells you that)
5: timing belt not changed at 60,000 miles it will fail, and will not start
or start have like 1/4 power.
6: lost compression in or more cylinders.?

or
get it serviced? if all that is too much work? or confusing.

Will not start


is this this s DIY question or ? just a request for wild guessing.
Ill assume its a real DIY. ? do tell.
what is a jumper box to house. ?????????????????
first off, you need to say,
it cranks robustly but does not start or not.
does it crank? if yes, why buy a starter?
no car starts unless cranked. (mine push starts and gravity starts)
but I bet yours is a A/T tranny , automatic.?
so does it crank.?
?
lets pretend, it cranks perfectly.
and really is a no start (confusing your replacing a starter )
this jeep , like most from 1993 have the ASD relay.
THE ASD relay must close to start the engine.
The ASD relay must close, and if spark , and up to 7 other things
are good, then it will stay closed, if not it drops out. KILLING starts.
that is what it does, so watch the ASD while cranking, what does it do>???????????

http://www.fixkick.com/Jeeps/ASD.html


now I will do NO CRANK.
and the funny house box thing, (a battery charger? or what i cant guess)
no cranks are caused.
By bad shifter, switch.
this is called the key line.
so i hot wire the starter solenoid, (remove tiny wire first to it)
ask how to do this.... its not hard. (mostly but some cars have shields making it harder today)
and it dont crank ! NOW? , then bad battery,starter bad, cables or seized engine. (turn engine by hand ,ok? to spin? by hand?)
and it does crank. then bad key line is reason.
easy huh? just one hot wire step and bam, problem cut in half.
i then try to crank in neutral, bam it cranks. and starts.
bad PRNLD switch.
or i just wiggle the shifter, bam, it cranks
or i wiggle the key switch funny in crank position and bam it cranks
bad key switch.

last, pretend the starter fails the hot wire above.
i hit it with a hammer, bam it cranks now.

we can do all that with a voltmeter easy,
ask.

http://www.fixkick.com/nocrank.html

see hot to solve no cranks on most cars.

other simular failures.
battery dies after parked.?
charge light (dash) on , driving? or idling, bingo, dead battery.


one more , car cranks but will not start for longer than 2 seconds
ASD action
but you failed to notice the Immobilizer lamp glowing wrongly.


my last answer. the funny house thing is a battery charger
and if you leave it charging long enough car cranks.
bingo?.?????
if yes, then the battery is DEAD and is DISCHARGED.
it discharged because you or something is left running, in car.
see phantom drains here.
the reason the car jump failed is you didnt give it enough time.
a very bad car battery can swamp the donor cars power source.
(and easy with cheap jumper cables.)
here is what you did wrong.

car is rested, it wont crank
you open the hood.
and check the batteryvoltage with a volt meter.
it reads 12.6vdc rested. good, it should crank ok, (but my not)
or it reads 12v, its discharged, so charge it to 12.6v and try again.

http://www.fixkick.com/drain/drain.html

  1. won't crank?
  2. battery discharges overnight.?
  3. won't start but cranks ok.?
  4. charge light stuck on.? running.?


which?

The car wont start. I know its either the starter or just the cyllinoid to the starter. Im trying to take off the starter but I cant seem to locate the bolts. How do I take the starter off?


  1. why do that ?, why not post the symptoms and ask for help.?
i suspect you meant the engine will not crank. ????????????
no engine starts unless, cranked or push started (my stick car starts 3ways, starter cranked, push started or gravity(hill) started.
my guess is this Esteem is A/T tranny. and only 1 way.
And will not crank. here are the steps and logic.

  1. all fuses good, battery lugs cleaned.
  2. jumper cables, on your battery to other car, running.
  3. it crankes and runs , your battery is dead or only discharged.
  4. so you find it dont crank jumper cable started.
  5. the means its 1 of 2 things, bad starter or bad key LINE>
  6. so you then , hot wire the solenoid, on side of starter , it has 2 big lugs and 1 tiny lug, keys in pocket you jumper the tiny lug to big outside lug, (battery lug +)
  7. you find out the started cranks now. wow it works. i saved you 4 hours labor and trips to store and all that bull. THE KEY LIKE IS DEAD.!
  8. if it dont crank now the starter is bad (with charged battery)
  9. ok it cranks hot wired, it wont start cuz key in pocket for safety.
  10. you then do these tricks see here.
  11. http://www.fixkick.com/nocrank.html#tricks
  12. see the other tests there, and the hot wire too. and lots more.
  13. there is no need to guess, if you have a voltmeter, 100 points.
  14. The rested battery voltage should be 12.6vdc if not its discharged. so charge it.

Pressure control solenoid on a 2005 diesel crv, will not turn over but runs just fine.


what does turn over mean/
1: I can crank the engine , that is the starter works ok.
2: the engine does not start and run,?
turn over means , NADA.
it cranks and starts.
or in rare cases cant crank but you push started car ok.

the runs fine, implies , you push starter car? or like me
park on hills, (too cheap to buy a good battery) grin? LOL

Riding along it just shut off...when I try starting it again the engine will not turn over...but when I jump start it, it start right up ....1989 Nissan pick up truck


NO CRANK, it does NOT CRANK,
the starters is dead, slow .
this is a no crank, the job of the starter.
if it cant crank, it surely can never start, unless push started.
but the jumper starting is the easy way to replace the battery
so you did.

jump starts. so the battery is bad. in car.
end story.
there is one exception bad battery cables.
if you jumpted to the battery lugs, then the battery is bad
if you connected the minus jump clip to the car body
then the battery minus cable was bypass. and could be bad.
same with plus but i bet you didnt to funny things with PLUS.

Fuel relay


Short answer, your batter is bad. or is disCHARGED:
Long.:

wont crank?
no engine, cranks ,unless the starting system works.
unless pushed fast, like my car or i park on a hill and coast jump my car.(M/T tranny rule)

NO crank, is the true failure here:
slow Cranks are , bad battery , or a discharged battery , due to bad charging system or parked for 3 months or longer.

so ill assume its NO CRANK.
I turn the key TO START and the starter fails to CRANK.
the starter motor is dead. (key clue 1)
so i attach a set of jumper cables to my Caddy, running and this car
now cranks and RUNS (you left that out. above, huh? runs)

turnsover means nothing, because the engine starter turns over
and the engine can turn over and the engine can run,
once running the EFI system SUSTAINS runninng.
so there are 4 states there. (4 phases )

No cranks #1 reason to be slow , are a bad battery
so I charge that battery, and see how if it cranks , now?
it dont crank means a bad battery
it does work( crank) see how long it works.../?
if it dies again, or better, check the cars Alternator for by measuring
accross the battery terminals running , with any volt meter.
13.3 to 15vdc is a good alternator running the engine.
if NOT, the charge system is bad. (system)

On some cars the IMMO can block Cranking or for sure blocks
fueling after 2 seconds. So. watch the IMMO light on the dash.
Immo is the Immoblizer. option.

Car won't start without a jump but battery okay


wont crank or wont start.??
no car starts , if it cant crank. (unless push starter (M/T magic)
that is not a trans sensor its the PRN switch.
ill answer for, wont CRANK !
it wont crank even with a good battery (charged) or jump started.
1: bad start
2: bad wires to same.
so hot wire the starter small wire, the key start line is tiny.
cranks. , starter good, no crank starter bad or cables bad.
if it cranks hot wired, then the key line is dead.
easy, huh?
