    Check fuses and relays for continuity.


    How many coils?
    If 2 then, do you have the right spark plugs? Are the sparkplug wires broken? Do your coils work?



    Does the car turn over?

Sure the new coil is working? Did you check for spark?Is the fuel pump working? Fuel injectors? ECM?

Have you checked the fuel injectors? Fuel filter? Fuel pump? Sounds to me like you have a fuel delivery problem.

Try the following: remove the airbox and spray some starter fluid into the throttle body while someone else cranks the motor. If it starts for a second and dies, then you KNOW you have a fuel delivery problem. If it doesn't change and still won't start, then the problem is either a bad sensor somewhere (crank position sensor, maybe?) or no compression.

Have 99 mazda 626 sat idle for a year replaced batterty and alternator belt . cranks but won't start.


I would check to see if the car is getting fuel to the engine. Make sure your fuel pump is kicking on. Check to see if gas is going to the fuel filter from the pump. Make sure gas is going through the pump as well. You could also check the fuel pressure to avoid looking. Make sure it is in range. Also, make sure your battery terminals are cleaned and they are not loose. Make sure all the wires are tight and correct at the alternator. You may have an issue with the ignition system. check for spark. You may have a bad plugs or perhaps, a crank sensor or cam sensor. It could be anyone of these parts. You just need to do the proper test to eliminate all possibilities. If you have a question, just let me know.

99 Jeep Cherokee Sport, 4.0L -won't start


you need to have it connected to an OBD2 machine and watch if you are missing the cam sensor showing RPMs
or if your missing crank sensors RPMs,
it could be a wiring problem or computer if your seeing the RPMs from both sensors,and the last thing i would check is hooking up a fuel gauge to the reed valve and watch what fuel pressure you have while cranking,if the cam sensor is the culprit it will turn the fuel off after the cranking.

99 cherokee won't start its getting fuel and spark but just cranks and cranks it was running and i had a flat changed the flat and it hasn't started since


could be Crank and Cam sensors, airflow sensor, anti-theft system (if Applicable), Contaminated fuel, ignition and sensor wires. Are you sure fuel pressure is right? Are you getting good spark? Just giving you some ideas.
