Check the timing belt, if it's broke the car won't start.
It's a non-interference engine, so just replace the belt if needed, the engine is otherwise undamaged. While you are at it, replace the water pump and timing belt pulleys, not much extra labor for stuff that's going to have to be replaced one of these days anyway.

How to check a ignition coil pack to see if its good,


the coil does not crank the engine , the starter does that, sorry.
(if you ever had to hand or foot crank and engine , youd under stand that. (like motor cycles or boat engines, or per 30s cars.)

in fact will crank all day with no spark parts on car..

x2, the scan tool does tell you why there is NO STARTS, CRANKS OK. The pcm can detect, one missfire in 10 cmp;ckp signals.
  • CRANK FOR 5 SECONDS
  • release, key
  • scan tool has DTC errors?, read the believe them.
no engine stated of 4 or more,

U checked everything but spark,
why, check spark at all cylinders, all most fire or the engine will not run or stall.
That test be first, if not starting (AFTER SCAN TEST)

IF NO spark fuses are next , not last.
lets do no start fails tests. (cranks perfectly 200 to 300 rpm)
  1. : check fuses
  2. key on, CEL lamp must glow, if not , ECU fuse blown.
  3. crank with scan tool , see P03xx DTC errors, see RPM dead.?
  4. check for spark? got spark x4 or times number of cylinders?
  5. got spark try test fuel now, runs for 3 seconds?
  6. yes, runs on test fuel now means lost fueling
  7. no, dont run on test fuel, means, 1 to 5 done wrong above or engine compression bad.
  8. bad fueling, huge number of tests. check fuel pressure now.
confused, try a shop and watch them, learn.

Will not start


no year, no engine option stated..... so generic. answers.....
can be 1 of 4 basic things. all gas engines.
1: lost 12vdc power to the EFI (which means spark too)
2: lost compression, (cam chain snapped?)
3: lost spark , test spark at all cylinders,
4: bad fueling,,, fooding or none (little) at all.

there are very simple tests for each, do you want to GUESS or TEST?

Have a 2000 eclipse it will turn over but wont start i think it may be a sensor, which one?


While cranking the engine over check for spark, then after cranking over for 5 Sec. or so remove a plug or two and check for gas in the cylinders. This will help you narrow it down.

Thanks,
Tom

I was driving and the car studder and died and will not restart yes it has gas it just cranks and yes i can smell fuel after cranking for a few


I'm assuming that you have a fuel injected car, so the fact that you can smell fuel is not a good thing. You might have a fuel leak somewhere, or your EVAP canister is clogged. Pull the hose from the EVAP canister, and set your car to "ON" to make sure that you are getting a good amount of fuel. You can also see if your are getting spark by pulling a plug and reconnecting it to the wire and turning over your car. If it doesn't spark, then you need a new distributor or distributor cap/rotor. Your coil may also be bad.

96 Ford Explorer is studdering (misfiring) when going up hills


I have the same exact problem that just started immediately AFTER I got a tranny service where they changed the Trans Fluid, Trans Filter, Fuel Filter. Took it back and they say nothing is wrong with it. Took it to the dealer thinking I could get some REAL answers... they just told me to replace spark plugs, wiring & coil, for $900. Only studders when quickly accelerating above 40mph. I've check other forums, they say to clean the Mass Air Flow sensor. Haven't tried it yet. This seems the easiest before replacing spark plugs. Any other suggestions anyone?? Please.....

My 1999 volvo xc 70 engine light just came on and it sputters when I put on the gas and it smells like something is burning I've had both the studder and the gas smell problem, the studder was the O2...


Sound like a possible leak or you have a bad injector. You will not be able to lokk under the car for any leaks due the fuel will evaporate, you will need to start the car and look at the fuel rail while it's running. If it is not that check your fuel filters. If your lines do not have addaquate fuel pressue due to a leak or a dirty filter, it could cause those symptoms...


Good luck!

Running rough, studders on acceleration, no power.


FIRST, I WOULD TUNE IT UP WITH PLUGS, WIRES CAP AND ROTOR. THEN I WOULD GET SOME REALLY GOOD FUEL INJECTOR CLEANER AND USE AS DIRECTED. MAKE SURE THE TIRES ARE INFLATED TO SPECS AS THIS CAN REDUCE MILEAGE AS WELL. AN INTAKE CLEAN CAN ALSO HELP IT RUN CLEANER AND MORE EFFICIENT. HOPE THIS HELPS. LET ME KNOW. GOOD LUCK

Car cranks over but will not start


im not 100 percent sure , but if the car has an imobiliser sometimes if your car battery has lost a lot of charge the car will crank over , but will not have enough power to disengage the imobiliser. try jump leads to another car and see how you go .
