SOURCE: Engine is cranking, but it wont turn over

Sounds like a fuel pump issue turn the key over as if listening to your radio and listen towards the fuel pump it will be the only noise you hear if no noise your pump is bad otherwise if you are gettin noise it could be your fuel filter.

If you are getting fuel and spark, than it probably is either a bad ground, or the TPS sensor itself.

SOURCE: engine cranks spark-compartion-fuel-when cranking

injectors not working, check the tan- lt green wire on the fuel relay that is located on the right fender, mine wasn't pushed in all the way, this wire shut down spark and fuel, if you are looking for the shut off switch to reset the relay, it is on the passagers side floor board under the dash, gas two wires, orange and pink, I don't remember the color of the stripes, I removed this switch and wired them together without a problem

SOURCE: The engine cranks fine, but won't start. Fuel

your fuel pressure should actually be around 180lbs to run the engine.open the breather up and spray a very small ammount of starting fluid into the breather while you're cranking it. if it does start,your problems the fuel pump,or a clogged fuel filter.if it does'nt start you can move on to crankshaft sensor.or a bad fuel pressure regulator. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Check some fuses or see if you are getting any kind of spark. Spark at the plugs or injectors.

Rav4 wont start but cranking and no engine an overdrive light


Does this engine have fuel? Does it have spark? Is it getting air? These are the questions you need to answer. First thing you should check for is spark due to it being the easiest to diagnose. Hope this helps. Btw air is almost never the issue. So check for fuel next

1988 ford f250 302v8 5speed 4wd. truck wont start. has good fuel pressure and compression. i grounded one of the plug wires and got a nice fat orange spark. if left to sit for a day or 2 it will run when...


First of all. you have to line up the rotor to the number one distributor tower with the engine at O" TDC, so your timing probably was initially correct. Sounds like you are getting TOO MUCH FUEL. Could be fuel pressure regulator located on fuel rail. Also your plugs are probably fouled too from all the excess fuel.

Our 1991 honda civic overheated we pulled over immeditely andwhile sitting everything went off now the it won't start or nothing now there was water on the battery


Wait for the car to cool off. Check for : 1. Fuel- does it have gas? 2. Spark- Is it getting good spark(electrical functioning-battery, starter, timing, etc.) 3. Compression- If the valves are toast the piston will not compress the air/fuel mixture for the spark to ignite it. No explosion, no start. Try to start it. Is there power in the vehicle? Does the engine turn over? If the engine turns over, does it have fuel? If it doesnt crank and the battery is fully charged then try jumping the starter solenoid, if it doesnt turn the engine then you must check to see if the engine is turning freely or seized by turning the crank with a breaker bar and socket. Is the engine turns then you should be able to troubleshoot it, if it doesn't then something is not letting it turn either in the head(s) or in the crank and that equals to pretty expensive repair costs. IF you get it to start, shut it off immediately and find the source of the overheating before going any further. Check coolant level(make sure the car has had enough time to cool down), check water hoses for leaks or cracks, check for a stuck thermostat or a clogged radiator.

The engine indicator on the dash wont stay lit before the start of the car, the engine turnsover but doesnt start


There is no simple answer, there are to many variables. If you have access to a scan tool, pulling the codes should help. Without them its back to old school hunt and peck method. At this point we need to narrow down the problem. You need to test for spark.
  1. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires from the spark plugs.
  2. Remove the spark plugs and install the spark plug wires to each spark plug.
  3. Ground (do not hold spark plug) the spark plug; check if spark occurs while engine is being cranked.
Crank the engine for no more than 2 seconds at a time to prevent flooding the engine with gasoline.
If you have spark, You will want to make sure you have fuel injector pulse, along with fuel pressure. If you have spark ..simply spray some starting fluid in through the air filter and hold the gas pedal to the floor and crank it over while spraying. If it fires up, you know it is fuel related( fuel pump, regulator, or ECM if no injector pulse) . If you have no spark then look at ignition coil connection and trace through to the distributor( if equipped ). The crank shaft sensor has a tendency to fail on these as well. This should give you a few things to test and check to start you on your way to narrowing it down. If you have no spark then look at ignition coil connection for power and trace through to the distributor( if equipped ). If it is DIS( no distributor). It may be the Crank sensor or the ECU. The crank shaft sensor has a tendency to fail on these as well.
The ECU uses the signal sent from the Crank sensor to trigger the spark and fuel injectors. ( make certain you have checked all fuses)

Well my car wont start,tryed new battery still doesnt start. trey to pop the clutch didnt start. what could it be?


Hi,
The engine needs adequate fuel pressure, a properly timed spark and normal compression to start.


1) To find why the engine won't start, remove the air inlet tube from the throttle body, push the throttle open and spray a small amount of aerosol starting fluid into the engine. Crank the engine. If it has spark and compression but NO FUEL, it will start and run a few seconds before dying. If it does NOT start, it probably has NO SPARK.

2)Another method to check for spark is to pull a spark plug wire off of a spark plug (if it has plug wires, coil-on-plug ignitions do not) and place the open end of the plug wire near a metal surface on the engine. Have a helper crank the engine while you watch for a spark. DO NOT hold the wire while doing this as it can shock you. If you see a spark, the problem is not spark, but most likely NO FUEL or NO COMPRESSION. If you do not see a spark, the problem is in the IGNITION CIRCUIT.

3)Proper fuel pressure is critical for fuel injected engines to start and run. You should hear the fuel pump inside the fuel tank buzz for a couple of seconds when the ignition is turned on (no buzz means the pump is not running and the engine is not getting fuel). You can smell the tailpipe for gasoline vapors after cranking the engine. If you smell gas, the problem is likely not fuel but NO SPARK. You can also remove the plastic cap and press the schraeder valve test fitting on the fuel rail to see if there is any fuel pressure to the engine (not a very accurate test because fuel pressure must be at a certain level for the engine to start, for that you need a gauge). Even so, no fuel at the fuel rail would tell you fuel is not getting to the engine..
Thank you !!

"Cranks, but won't start". Replaced fuel pump, CKP, ICM & nothing


If the engine cranks over normally when you attempt to start you car, but the engine does not start, the problem may be NO FUEL, NO SPARK or NO COMPRESSION. The engine needs adequate fuel pressure, a properly timed spark and normal compression to start.

1998 honda accord problem


Lets hope the timing belt didn't break! If it turns over very fast and kind of sounds like a sewing machine, this is probably the problem. If it is, big repair bill! If it cranks over and sounds like a normal engine that just isn't starting, there are a number of possibilities. Start by checking for spark. Get a spare spark plug and insert it into one of the plug leads and hold the threaded portion of the plug on a good ground. Have someone crank the engine over while you watch for spark. No spark means you have to check the entire ignition system. If you have spark, then you probably have a fuel problem, you can crack a line at the filter to see if fuel comes out when the engine cranks. No fuel means you may have a bad pump. If you do have fuel at the filter, you can use a stethoscope to listen to the fuel injectors, to make sure they are clicking when the engine is being cranked over. No clicking could mean a computer problem.
