2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara won't start engine

what engine, state engine size and country.
there can only be 3 ways, to fail.
bad engine (low compresssion, us the $20 tool at WOT and see over 170psi.
Bad spark
bad fueling.
just because spark coils (COPS?) work on other car , dont mean much.
what counts is your car , its a system.
the cops, have fast 5mS pulse when firing, you using a scope to see that?
Im so curious, why not to the time old test, use a real spark plug
attached to the COP end, spark plug shell grounded to engine metal
and crank, is spark good x4? or x6 if V6 (engine NOT STATED)
is it? then spark is good, leaving fueling.
do not touch the spark plug cranking, it can hit 100,000 volts.
I use a ground strap on the spark plug casing, hands free, or you can be hurt bad, by the spark or when you jump and cut arm backing off
on cars that flood, is it flooding?
I found my engine compression good, then found all 4 sparks fire good.
so i pull the fuel pump relay. killing fueling.
i then use "test fuel" to start engine (again, text book tests)
I use the new CRC brand of test fuel with top end oiling.
i spray it in the plenum, and it starts.
if the spark plugs are bad, (part oftune it up)
it may not start if flooded,
use WOT at the throttle (cuts fuel) and start any flooded engine.
if the spark tips are black and stink of raw fuel (wet with fuel)
that means flooding.
pull the fuel pump relay ,test fuel runs for 3 seconds. each time.
3 second spray max. each time.
if that works out, then find reason for flooding if flooding.
if not flooding, you find dry sparks.
then trouble shoot no fuel.
fuel pressure not near 30 PS?
fuel pressure too high say, 60, it will flood for ever.
there are only 3 tests.
and 4 counting wet /dry sparks.
the tests done, will put you on the correct path every time.
no guessing, no swapping parts to other cars.

I Recently swamped my 07' Ford Ranger. A Wave came over the hood and Immediatly it stalled out and luckily for me. After that the the starter would'ent engage. So I got it towed out of the

you may have short circuited the starter. have you tried to turn over the engine manually by turning the crank bolt to see if your engine has seized...water into the intake could have gone into the cylinder(s) and caused the block or head to warp, if all of the above is not relevant then I would have to suggest that it is a faulty starter motor, when the starter failed on one of my jeeps i found the replacement to be rather expensive then I remembered my fathers trick & his favourite phrase - if in doubt then give it a clout! so i smacked the starter motor from the undersiide quite firmly with my FBH F***ing Big Hammer & Lo & Behold it started up first time - hope this helps

What to do when there fuel flood toyota tazz. do not start

several things you can try, hold the gas pedal to the floor while trying to start. remove spark plugs and turn engine over to get rid of excess fuel from cylinders. Best to fix to fix faults check injectors for leak down.

Car only start with cold engine

This can actually be several things but most common is the coolant temp sensor, it tells the computer how much fuel to give the engine depending on temp, if the sensor goes bad then it may be giving engine too much fuel when it's warm, which may be why it starts fine cold cause it needs more fuel to start cold, try holding the gas pedal to the floor when u start it warm, if it does start and run rough for a few seconds it's cause it was flooded due to excessive fuel.. Get scanned for any trouble codes..

1994 Pontiac Grand Am - floods and will not start

Two things I would be curious about. One is what the coolant temp sensor is reading. You will need a scan tool capable of diplaying data in order to check this. If the coolant temp sensor is bad and the PCM is defaulting to -35 degrees Fahrenheit it will cause the engine to flood. The other thing I would like to check is compression. If there is low compression it can cause this symptom. Let me know what you find with those. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Wont start takes hours to start again

.When the injectors leak they flood the engine and holding pedal to the floor or waiting hours for fuel to dissipate. See if you have spark and fuel when it wont run. If there is no spark check the electronic control module under the cap

What would cause oil to leak above oil filter on 1998 VW passat 6cyl engine 20V Turbo

Hey that's a good question - sorry no knowledge of these critters...
You could try a haynes or chiltons manual - those found at your local auto supply house (about $20-25) or your local library (free to take out) for your year, make, model.
Best regards

My 1987 chrysler conquest tsi floods the engine and won't start

your best solution wont work because it is an 88 they can only scan '96 and newer when OBD II came out so know what you are talking about before you post
those cars are known for fuelinjection probs. your best bet is to first get your self a fuel pressure regulator and Gauge to determin how much fuel you are pushung and get it tuned up by some one who knows what they are doing because tuning will make or break a turbo car
