Engine will roll over but not start after changing the timing belt. Checked fuel pump and filter, those are working but it still acts like it isn't getting any fuel.

Did the belt break or did you just change it for regular maintenance at 60,000 miles? if it broke the valves are most likely bent, this is what they call an "interference engine" this means if the timing belt breaks the valves hit the pistons, let me know ok.

I have a 1997 suzuki sidekick JX 4×4 and it was running fine I had the computer checked and the o2 sensor and a calorie converter needed to be changed so I did that and it was running great and I turned it...


wont crank or cranks fast but will not start???????????????
2door or 4 doors? (wired diffr they are)
its an old car, and most fail this old. "entropy"
first off, 3 things must be good on this old engine.
1: compression. at above 150 psi, 180 warm not 80.
if compression is low an all 4 cylinders (G16b engine) the cam belt slipped, do to owers not changing belt at 60,000 miles !
2: bad spark, test for spark at all 4 cylinder yet? if bad spark
use a scan tool and see why, cranking for 5 seconds. P03xx errors?
at this point the engine runs on test fuel. does it?

3: bad fueling , too much or too little or none)
is engine flooding, spark tips wet,
no dry, and test fuel runs car for 3 seconds.
ok that means the pump is dead, or weak
caused by (again a real 60k tuneup skipped, the filter)
replace filter. omg got 30psi pump pressure,
lets say pump pressure is still weak, lets say 15psi, (failed)
i check pump voltage cranking, omg, got 8v. the wires
behind left rear tail light (2door) pink wires or ground there bad.
ok got 12vdc to pump. but is weak
i then check FPR, fuel pump reg on fuel rail. i find it is stuck wide open, a new FPR gets pressure to 30 running and 40 not running.
fixed.
no the FPR is ok, the pump is bad. (last, pumps is last in my book as the work is long and hard, and why do that if , its not bad. as most all seem to do on forums.)

no start has 50 causes.
see scotty do the TEST FUEL test.

http://www.fixkick.com/nostart.html


we dont know what checked filter and pump means.
1: filter is there and looks pretty?
2: pump makes noise?
we use a fuel pressure gauge for 20 bucks.

all 9 pump tests are here, and the there tests for injector leakdown
and injector balance tests. all off one tool.
not starting can even be, leaking injector, folding 1 cylinder bad.

Have a 2000 GMC Yukon Denali. Won't fire.


Make sure that the belt isn't extremely tight and they the belt tensioner isn't liked up by pulling in the belt. It should move and spring right back. Make sure engine isn't locked up. And please explain what happen with the vehicle. The fact that you replace plugs and wires and fuel filter for a car that's not turning is throwing me off. So right now we are going all over the place. But definite look at belt and tensioner I've seen a few times that a bad tensioner will make the belt wrap around tighter inhibiting the engine from turning.

Check if there isn't any blown "engine control" fuse. It looks like the computer isn't adjusting the timing as the engine accelerates. I assume you've already checked for open circuits at the ignition system. If not, do so, making sure all your connections are tight.

Car wants to start but acts like it isn't getting fuel.


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You need to check the fuel pressure to see if it is getting gas. You can check it from the fuel line. You can try hitting the gas tank a few times and then try starting it. If it is the fuel pump, this may cause it to activate and work. You can check to see if there is fuel coming to the fuel filter or going through the filter. Make sure the filter isn't clogged up. You can always use starter fluid or a little gas in the intake. If it starts for a second or two, you probably have a fuel issue. If it only cranks, you may have an issue with the ignition system, such as a cam sensor, bad plugs or wires, distributor, crank sensor. If your computer has picked up on anything, your check engine light will be on. You can get specific codes from your computer that explain what part is not working. You have to have an OBDII scanner though. You need fuel, air, and fire to start a vehicle. Try hitting the gas tank first to see if it will start. When you first turn the key, you should hear a humming sound for a second or two. If you do, then the pump is probably working. If not, the pump is probably not working. You need to test for fuel and spark. Hit the tank and let me knoe if it starts.

Not getting fuel to the carby, have checked float bowl(empty) have taken fuel line off and turned engine over but no fuel comes through. Fuel tank is full


On your Swift, there's probably a fuel filter located just off the gas tank that's somewhat hard to spot. It also takes a bit of finesse to get a wrench in position to change the filter, and so this part is often not changed out until it's completely plugged. I would suggest changing this filter to see if this makes any difference. However, even a plugged filter normally allows a bit of gasoline to dribble through.

A second possibility is that your fuel pump isn't working properly. I don't have my reference materials in front of me, but I believe that this car is equipped with an electric pump, as opposed to a mechanical pump on the engine. If your fuel pump isn't working, you won't get fuel delivery through the lines to your engine. Also, the fuel pump may have failed from having to work extra-hard to compensate for a partially or wholly blocked fuel filter (see above).

I would trouble-shoot both these items; I suspect that one or both of them are contributing to your fuel problem. I have seen a number of Swifts / Metros sold "as-is" or sent to the junk yard for running poorly when their only problem is a clogged fuel filter.

My 92 Corolla died on the freeway. It acted like it ran out of gas. The fuel filter was clogged, changed it. Then it started, ran rough. Then it wouldn't start again. Changed fuel pump. Still won't start....


Check to see if your timing belt broke. Remove the Distributor cap and watch the rotor as the engine cranks. If the rotor spins then the Timing belt is at least in place. If it doesn't spin then the Timing chain/belt has broken and will need to be replaced. You will also have to have the valves checked to verify they have not bent after making contact with the piston heads.

2000 1500 Sierra will not stay running step on gas act like its running out of gas. Popped top fuel line gas came poured outbut didn't pump out when i rolled the engine over. Got underneath the fuel cell...


Replace the fuel pump and fuel filter to correct the problem you are having. Without the proper fuel pressure the engine will not run at all. Hope this will help you. You might check the fuse/relay panel for a blown fuse or relay in it to make sure you are getting power to fuel pump before you go to the trouble of removing the pump and fuel filter. Hope this will help you.

Car died while driving, fuse relays work, just changed spark plugs, spark plugs are gapped correctly, turns over. Timing belt is intact. Acts as if car is not getting fuel, but fuel pump is working...


Use a little starting fluid to make to the engine CAN ran for 2 second.

On high mileage car,it's possible to jump a tooth or two on the time belt (not chain).

Can you set TDC top dead center on cylinder and open timing cover to see the cam dots are lining up?

DO NOT attempt this in the dark.

Check for oil coolant cross mix.

Change fuel filter
