    we took the fuel filter off and checked it - started the car up and fuel is coming through. - we had previously checked that power was coming to the spark plugs and it was but we had not checked the plugs themselves - the problem is how to access the plugs as they are deep in the engine - so the pump looks ok (and the filter looked ok - but we have one on order anyway!) thanks so much for your initial response

You checked for, and have spark, next check for fuel to plugs. After several attempts to start, pull a plug and look for evidence of fuel (should be damp after several starting attempts) Do you hear a humming sound when the key is turned on to start? That would be coming from the gas tank, and is evidence that the fuel pump is functioning. If no gas, no humm, check for power to fuel pump. If there is power to the fuel pump and connections are ok, the pump is bad and needs to be replaced. If humm present, try changing the fuel filter, there's a chance it's plugged up. Let me know how it goes.

Theres 2 main reasons a piston engine cannt start: lack of spark to the plugs and or fuel to rhe cylinders.
If your are absolutely sure spark is strong and getting to the plugs. You still need to check the timing. Is the spark going in at the rigjt time. Make sure distributor hassnt been disturbed or moved out of the correct position.
Are the leads in good condotion ? If frayes or worn power wwill short between them.

Now to the fuel. Check as prwvoius comment. What kind of system you got? Carburettor or injection. Carbies are notorious for getting blocked jets or leakages. Check fuel in float cup area.
Injection are the injectors spraying correct fuel to the cylinder.
Check if your battery is strong, enough. Make sure to to kill the battery. Shrt burst, do not overcrank and o/heat starter motor.
See how you go

How do you know if your ignation switch is not working , ford 1995 windstar, car wont start

First, starting a 1995 Ford can be a doze or more reasons. If the battery is A-Okay, you should get power to the starter motor that in turn engages with the crank. If that fails...check the STARTER MOTOR. If you get the starter to run and it keeps running without turning over the engine; your not getting ignition. No ignition means to power to the spark plugs. No spark no explosion, no piston movement and the crank shaft remains idol. If you do have repeated ignition and no explosion within the cylinders, it can be the fuel. The fuel could be old, water in the gas, or a plugged gas line. No spark could also be the spark plug wires are bad, or terminals are dirty. Also, the sparkplug Gap could be too wide or too narrow. And then could be its a 1995 Ford.

1995 pickup just replaced the engine and will not start has power but will not turn over

Can you describe more symptoms? When you say it does not turn over, do you mean the engine does not turn, the starter motor does not turn? Can the engine be turned over by hand if you remove the spark plugs? Does the starter click when you try to start? Does the starter spin but engine does not turn over? Help us to help you.

1995 Lexus LS400. Car was left in garage for two weeks while we were on vacation. Upon return it won't start. Engine does turn over. Replaced fuel pump in attempt to troubleshoot. Mechanic ha

I assume the pump was replaced because it was getting power but no fuel pressure ?
Are you still not getting fuel pressure ?
Spark to the plugs ?
Normal compression when cranking the engine ?
Security light not staying on ?

1995 Oldsmobile Aurora will start sometimes and other times it won't, I replaced the starter and still the same.

If the engine cranks but won't start, the battery and starter are out of the picture.
When it won't start, someone will need to check fuel pressure and for spark at the plugs to proceed.

95 Blazer W engine V6, Runs real good until fully warmed-up. Stops and won't start again for over a 1/2 hour. Has good fuel pressure and no spark at spark plug. Have switched PCM,module,coil, cap

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.

I was driving and the car cut off. It won't start but it cranks and won't turn over.It is a 1995 Olds Cutlass Ciera SL, 6 Cylinder.

your terminology is wrong.if it cranks its turning over what you mean is it won`t start(fire up) as you said at the beginning.anyways it sounds like you could have a fuel pump problem that stop working.this happens should check for spark at the plugs to make sure its not an ignition problem.did you notice a check engine light on when it was running.if so there will be a code in the ecm and may be the cause of your problem.

1995 Grand cherokee 5.2 engine, when cold takes forever to start up. once hot will start up on first try. i changed the spark plugs but same result. idles fine runs good. Spark plugs were dry when...

Living in New England we have some cold days. What I find helps, but not necessary your problem, is to turn the key to the "on" position for 5 seconds or so and then turn the key to actually start the engine. Its starts right up without major pull on starter or battery.

My 1995 mazda 626 4 cyl wont start. its getting gas spark. when you turn the moter over you hear like a muffeled noise at the moter not muffler

Your problem could be a lot of things ,,without hearing the noise we have to gess your problems like
1Chech the engine for turning over if not then its the starter bendix slipping and if it is turning over as usual then its could be the starter ring on the flywheel and if so turn key off and turn engine over by hand about 1/2 way around on bottom pully and try starting again and if it starts then its the starter ring.
Engine or Gearbox out job.
Let me know how you get on . Ron
