    Wen you put it back together, did you by chance remove a crank position sensor? And by chance put it back on? and by chance made sure it cleared the crank pulley and such? If so, double ck , k?

Good, thanks checking the cps. Now, It souns like you have lost the current in thecrank circuit that bypasses the run circuit when you are cranking. This is usually incorporated in the starter relay circuit. Check all the fuses , that done and all is good, Check the actual switch to make sure it is traveling all the way. It may be mounted on the steering clolumn under the dash and actuated with a rod from the key if it is a column key switch. Let me know please.

86 4.3 4BC 1500 Chevy Die rolling up to light Started up and ch of fuel and it died 3 times now no start smell fuel and quit yellow spark Have replaced cap rotor plugs wires EGR coil ECM Rebuilt carb

It sounds more like a fuel problem to me then a bad coil or spark ign the spark should be blue but its hard to see in daylight
You say you rebuilt the carb are you sure your main mixture jets are at least 2 to 3 turns out off the stops .
Try pouring fuel down the barrel fill the float bowl if it runs then dies its fuel don't let it catch unfire you should have 45 sec. of run time then adjust the the mixture screws 2 turns is base but when its is running good turn them in 1 at a time and give it 30 sec. to adjust until it starts to stumble then back it out a 1/4 two 1/2 turn then repeat on bank 2

Got 2000 dodge neon will start when cold run good but when motor warms up won't start

Nikki is the engine light on, are there any codes,have you had a tune up or any other work done lately.when you say it won't start when warm(do you mean engine will not turn over, or does engine turn and refuses to fire.
If I had to guess failing fuel pump, they tend not to build fuel pressure when ran a while(warmed up) and when left to cool build somewhat better pressure.

I have a 1996 Dodge Neon. When the car warms up, you can be running along fine and all of a sudden, it will lose power. The car will spit. lunge and sputter until the engine dies. The car will usually...

This happened to me and we couldn't figure it out. We ended up changing the spark plugs and all that and then it started working perfectly!

Replaced blown head gasket on 1993 toyota mr2.put everything back together and car will not start.checked valve timing and it is good.getting fuel to injectors and spark to plugs.messed with distributor...

I think you should check your timing again, check the firing order of the distributor and if they are with there corresponding spark plug. Did you mark the connector or label them before disassembling. Maybe u left the timing in exhaust instead of compression
