SOURCE: 98 s10 cranks but wont start. Checked for spark and fuel press,

Yes It does. There are (or should be) toggle switches to reset security alarm. However, the ignition hot lead passes through the security relay contacts. This relay may be the culprit, in that if it does not pull when ignition key is turned; The start relay will not pull disabling fuel pump and spark.

SOURCE: crank no start ,got fuel got spark, when trying to

You pinched the fuel line????
If you crank for too long to start the car, the engine will "flood", this is why the plug was wet. It had too much gas and wouldn't start.
Pull out ALL plugs and dry them off.
Install them.
HOLD your gas pedal to the floor and crank.
This will stop gas from entering the engine.
you need to get that extra gas out beofre it will start.
If you have so much gas in there you can do damage to your engine!!
Now after a few crnaking attempts with your foot to the floor, take your foot of the gas pedal and try to start it again.
But remember if it doesn't start in 3 tries, you need to do the pedal to the floor once or twice to remove the excess gas.
When you crank the car to start it sprays gas into the engine, even if it won't start. So it very easy to "flood" the engine, and then you'll have a hard time to get it going!

Why wont my 1996 ford explorer start it turns over but wont start


You need to determine whether or not it is getting fuel and spark. It needs both to start. Remove one plug wire and hold it close to the engine while someone cranks it over. There should be spark from the plug wire. If there is spark, you will have a fuel supply issue. Possible fuel pump/relay/wiring/fuel filter/injectors not working to name a few. If no spark, possible crank sensor/ignition module/wiring.

My 97 bmw28is wont start everyting was working fine.batterry is full ibut cae r wont start


wont crank?
or cranks robustly (the crankshaft spins fast) but wont start.
all cars that dont start one, all ran when new. etc.
what counts is the now. only.
you need to do the tests. all covered in the FSM or at alldata.com
i cant help you because you . cuz did not say crank or start? so......

1: test all fuses. (not just gandering, use a meter)
2: check battery voltage 12.6vdc rested.
3: if not cranking, wiggle the shilter (a/t) or clutch if m/T
if a/t? try cranking in Neutral. cranks now? bingo.
4: cranks ok, and fast so check spark/

ill end there, due to vast number of tests and no clear stated
symptoms.
ever give it a full tuneup (60,000 mile service schedule?) or this DECADE. if not why ask the spark plug question.

My 1991 ford festiva wont crank replaced fuel pump and screen and fuel filter and fuel pump relay still wont crank and we have pushed the reset button what now help pls


Won't crank? Problem is with starter-have it tested.
If it cranks and won't start, check for spark at one of the spark plug wires. If no spark when the engine is cranking, the ignition circuit is the problem.

Low voltage


does it crank fast, at 250 spec RPM?
no year, no joy, all cars have a year,
and and engine option (displacement size???)
my wild guess, is it wont crank or cranks dead slow.
right?
and the battery is DISCHARGED. right,
use jumper start cables. start now?
that be first.

wont crank
cranks perfectly but wont start ?(check for spark, x number of cyl)
spark good, try test fuel
test fuel works for 3seconds and stalls,. then fueling problem , ask.

93 talon tsi getting fuel and spark car cranks but wont start


I would try making sure spark plug wires are put on in the correct firing order. This is a common mistake in tune ups. Most intake manifolds have the firinging order cast in. Plug gaps correct? I cant come too far away.

2005 dodge neon cranks but wont start


Hello, If it just cranks and not starting at all can be several things to look at. A engine to run needs fuel, spark, compression, air. BUT here is what I would first do, if you check to see if you have spark, and fuel, most likely it could be the crank sensor. If no codes come up on dash. There is so many things it could be. Just take one step at a time. See if your getting fuel, if you smell fuel, like flooded, then its getting fuel, otherwise could be fuel pump not working, If pulling a plug and keep it in plug sleeve and set next to medal screw on block, and have someone turn key, to see if you see spark. If spark then getting spark, Then were back to a couple things.... Crank sensor went out, that will cause to crank and not start, if cam sensor went out, it would still run, but just like ****. Next if still cranks and wont start, could be the timing chain missed a slot, which means could of bent a valve or stuck valve. Dont panic yet, just like I said start with first and always fuel, and also dont forget fuse panel for fuel relay fuse or fuel pump fuse to see if good. Keep me posted as i will try and help you along the way, Mike

My 1993 Olds 88 wont start cranks but wont kick over. Fuel prob


3.8 are known for ignition trouble but first use the fuel release valve located on top of engine under a screw cap to see if your getting fuel. It takes 4 things to make engine run fuel spark air and compression. But most likely the Ign control module or crank sensor. So try this
1) check the fuel pressure
2) check for spark
3) compression test
