Why does it turn over but won't start?


You need 3 basic things to make an engine run. 1 Compression, 2 Fuel, 3 Spark. So start buy checking for spark, remove a spark plug and plug it back into the wire. Now touch the threads of the spark plug to metal ( a good ground on the engine) and then turn the engine over (try to start it) and see if you have spark? No spark find the problem. If you have spark now see if you have fuel getting to the engine. You can try pouring a little fuel into the carb or throttle body and then see if the engine will fire or try to run. If it tries to run or fires you have a fuel problem. You need to find out why it is not getting fuel. Spark or fuel, 90% of the time are the main causes when an engine will not run. I hope this gets you started. Rod

My 95 probe got hot and now wont start has spark and turns over is there a high heat relay some where how do i get it to start


If you have spark, check for fuel. If you turn the car to "on" without starting it, you should hear the fuel injector pump at least breifly.

1983 Capri RS WONT START it is getting spark to the plugs and fuel turns over fine just wont start


Points or electronic ignition? Corroborator, or fuel injection? Was the car sitting idol for a long period of time, say, 6 months to more than 1 year? With a car that old, I would start with replacing spark plug and ignition wiring. Have you checked the spark plugs? Make sure they're cleaned and gaped. If corroded, replace them.

My car turns over but don't start


If it is turning over strong and not starting it is most likely a gas issue. I would check first to make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug but then go to the fuel pump, fuel filter and the fuel relay.

How to fix a1998 buick century to start fuel filter new and airfilter turning over but not starting gets gas


Did you check for spark? It sounds like you're not getting spark. Check for spark. If you are not getting spark then it sounds like you might have to replace the coil packs. Is it running a L4 engine? If its running a standard chevy L4 its probably the coil packs. Try to replace them check again for spark.

Car died. changed fuel pump and both filters. car will turn over but will not start. any help is appreciated.


Check for spark and fuel as a starting point. If you're getting fuel pressure at the rail, then the fuel pump and filters are not the problem.

Possible crankshaft sensor if the spark is not getting to the spark plugs in the 1992 Buick Century.

Turns over but wont start like its getting no gas


A car engine needs 3 things to start. 1. compression 2. a spark 3. fuel Assuming your engine is ok, you've lost either spark or fuel. Get a can of starting fluid and spray into the throttle body. try to start. if it starts, you're problem is fuel related (clogged filter,fuel pump,relay etc) if it still doesn't start, you've got no spark (coil,module,wiring harness,computer)
