Start with a new distributor cap and rotor button. Should probably replace the plug wires too. If still nothing, look to see that you're getting spark from the coil to the distributor.

SOURCE: I have a 1996 honda accord lx and the car dont

Im not clear on the stauts of the vehicle. Is it completley dead as if the battery does not work? Can you charge the battery or check to see if the battery is dead. If you have power going and the engine cranks but does not turn over it could be many things. It could simply be a fuse. Check your owners manual for location of your fuse box. Check all the fuses that goes to the starter, engine , fuel pump, anything that may correspond with electricity or starting the engine etc. Did the run , then stop working or did it do soemthing in between? I need a little more info.

My 1996 ford taurus sho wont start, it will turn over but not start what could be wrong?

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Looks like that there's no current flowing that's why it won't fire up. I strongly suggest that you check and replace the coil pack if necessary. If the coil pack is faulty there will be no current to the plugs. One good reason why it won't fire up.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

After changing my sparkplugs my car doesnt want to go

You may need to find out what type of plug your car requires. Certain cars need the factory type plug back in them. If you went with a chep version then your car may not perform as well. I think yours takes the fine tipped type of ac delco brand plugs. Start there.

Did you try the plugs and wires? Is the timing correct? New parts sometimes come to people bad. Don't always expect a new part to always be good.

Engine misfiring.

most all v8's have the same firing order which is 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2. sparkplug gap seems fine. with the engine off, bend the sparkplug wires between your fingers, if small cracks appear then replace them. number one sparkplug is located at the front driver side of the engine, front to back on this side are cylinders 2,4,6, and 8 respectively. turn the engine to the compression stroke on number one, pull the cap, the rotor points where number one will be.

Won't start turns over getting fuel and fire

make sure you are getting spark through the sparkplug wires. a sparkplug tester is the easiest way, or take a wire off one of the plugs try starting it and have another person watch the wire to see if a spark is coming off the wire to the sparkplugNOTE set the wire close to the sparkplug but leave a small gap between plug and wire so you can see the sparks. if not getting spark check all fuses first, otherwise the coil could be bad. or it could have coilpacks and one could be badNOTE every coilpack has two studs for wire, sometimes only one side of coilpack works if so it is bad both sides haft to work.

Don't know your engine size so pick the correct one for your motor:

2.3L 4-Cylinder Engines Firing Order: 1–3–4–2 Distributor Rotation: Clockwise

2.8L 6-Cylinder Engine Firing Order: 1–6–3–5–2–4 Distributor Rotation: Clockwise

2.9L 6-Cylinder Engines Firing Order: 1–5–3–6–2–4 Distributorless Ignition

2.3L and 2.4L 5-Cylinder Engines Firing Order: 1–2–4–5–3 Distributor Rotation: Counterclockwise

Engine won't start

even if you have spark, it may not be "good spark"

Try cleaning the contacts to the coil, or replace the coil itself.

May have pinched or cut a wire by mistake during the work you have done. Check all for proper grounding as well
