These seem to be unrelated, did the car backfire violently before this happened? The timing chain may have jumped cause a mechanical backfire that cracked your oil filter. This very hard to diagnose, can you give more info, does the car seem to turn over normally.

My jeep is turning over but wont start. I replaced the coil and it will occasionly spark and attemt to start only to soon die then it wont get another spark at all. How do i fix this??


Jeeps most common problem is with these particular vehicles are the crank sensors. May also have a bad reluctor. which is part of the flywheel. What you need to do first, Need to first remove the crank sensor which is on top of the bell housing. Remove it and inspect for cracks if you see any cracks replace it. and reset gap. You can use a small piece cardboard like the thickness of an oil filter box,tape it to the tip end of the sensor,and reinstall. After inspection or replacement of the sensor, start vehicle,Also keep an eye on your tachometer . Your tachometer should slightly come up when cranking. If not replace sensor.The crank sensor is a part of the ignition system, the pcm needs to see where top dead center is or where #1 cylinder is to determine when to spark, simply put. So the pcm knows when to fire.

I have 1989 Toyota 3.0 v6 4x4 pickup it has spark and getting fuel but wont start.


Your firing order is out of sync......if your getting spark you are firing in the wrong cylinders to actually start the vehicle. Or your ignition module or stator is bad, you will need to prob your electrical to figure out the where the problem lies.....my first would be not firing cylinders correc

My 2003 sunfire wont start its getting fire and gas and it turns but wont start why


Please consider following matters:
1. Ignition. Blue color fire is the the best ignition power 2. Gas. Check your fuel filter and injections 3. Compression. Combustion chambers should have enough compression to start the engine. Does your car lost its compression? Is the car has blue smoke on exhaust muffler ? Do you need top up oil regularly? All these things show your car has problem with compression.

just off the wall guess here but sounds like oil filter sending unit in the pan these get cloged with old sitting oil use a solution like warner mystery oil in pan with normal oil this will break down old oil after 500 miles replace oil and do it again for 3 + 500 mile oil changes this will help clean out the old oil
also you might have gotten your plug wires wrong in fireing order
