    You need to clarify your question. Are you not getting power to the distributor? Are you not getting fuel to the carburator? What is actually happening when you try and start the engine? Thanks, RAC

92 GMC sonoma 2.5L 4cylinder - replaced plugs,wires,fuel filter on the rail,checked fuel pump plenty of fuel. Wants to crank but doesnt seem like its getting fuel. used starting fluid still would fire off....


How about no spark or did you screw up the firing order when you replaced the plug wires? It is easy to do.Typically there are 2 things to get an engine to fire that's fuel and spark. other things will make it run bad but not even a short rumble when you use starting fluid, there is no ignition. Get a spark test tool from the auto parts store. Check the firing order and be sure your wires are in the correct order.

I have a 1990 Crown Victoria LTD, it started sputtering at low speed. Then stalled and won't start now. Any ideas?


You will have to start a diagnosis. Starting with the small test then on to others. 1. Getting gas to carberator 2. Pull coil wire and verify firing.

My chevy blazer is turning over but it won't start even when I put gas in the carberator.


You don't have a carberator on it, it's fuel injected. Id try spraying carb cleaner in the throttle while you have someone turn it over. If it fires up for a few seconds then dies then you might have a fuel pump problem or fuel filter clogged. If it still doesnt fire up then check if you have spark, if no spark see if your crank sensor is good and if your coil is getting power. If your coil is not getting power you might have a crank sensor problem. Try this and let me know if it helps.

My car is not starting anymore the plugs keep getting soak with gasoline does anybody know why?


The fuel soaked plugs are what's called "flooding". You need to troubleshoot the ignition system, my guess is that you're not getting spark to fire the cylinders. Was this a gradual thing or did it just fail one day?
