1998 s-10, won't start at times

1998 s-10, this problem just started a week ago. It won't start sometimes and without doing anything to it, it starts. I've changed the coil, coil wire, cap, rotor, and fuel pump. It is definetly an electrical problem before the coil. I put a test light to the power going into the coil and I have power, when I crank the engine over I lose power to the coil, but when I stop cranking the power comes back, but if the power stays to the coil, it starts. I'm at a loss???? Any ideas?

92' Nissan king Cab won't start


If you can not duplicate the problem on demand, it will be very difficult to find and know that it is fixed.
Do you know if you have lost spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors when it is hard to start ?
There is a long list of choices, including a faulty relay, fuel pump, ignition module, coil, and so on.
You have to know if it is a fuel or ignition problem to proceed.

I would suspect the fuel pump is the problem, it may be sticking at times and this causes a no start. The pump is located inside the fuel tank and it is electric.

Won't start


Check the fuel injectors, with the key on one side of the two wire connector will have battery voltage, if none is present then check the ECM fuses in the underhood fuel box.

Shut truck off. come back later, and won't do anything, lights come on but no clicking at all. done twice to me. first time had towed. next day disconnected battery and hooked back up and it...


verify voltage and start signal to the starter when the truck won't start or click. most likely the starter solenoid has gone bad and will not engage the starter after the engine has warmed up.

1994 honda accord will start fine for weeks then all of a sudden won t start but if i turn on the key put it in gear an pop the clutch it will start but sometimes it will start ok sometimes it won,t


Hi,from the clues you give I guess that the starter motor is in need of a service (worn brush gear) I presume that when it does not start that the engine does not make a cranking noise.
If the engine is cranking but failing to fire up, then it could be anything from the fuel pressure pump to the engine control system. there is a lot of clever stuff going on when you start your engine. Some simple things you should try first. Check visually that all vacuum hoses and wiring is secure and in good visual order( dodgy looking wires are prone to intermittent failure!... Do this next time it fails to start and recheck after gently adjusting ? wd 40 may ease problem temp. Also check service of spark plugs especially correct gap.
Make a note of engine temp/ and air temp. loose wires are usually more loose in cold mornings!.. starting enrichment may not be sufficient with a wide plug gap. Check battery for full power output on starting. will it pull the car on the starter /

I won't start


Have them check the fuel pressure with the key in accesory position and then again after it's started. Most newer cars need an extra boost at start up.
