SOURCE: no spark,new coil still no spark,crank sensor? 95 dodge ram 5.2 l

Could possibly be the ECM or computer it may be the crank sensor. The crank sensor is probably the cheepest so I would start there. Since it sound like you may be throwing parts at this, since you cant drive it to have a diagnostic done and you can't have the crank sensor tested, I would buy a used one from a junk yard to see if that is the problem to save a little money since you may have to buy somthing else if that does not work. Good luck

I have a van that cranks but no start. i have spark and fuel pressure at the shrader valve but still wont start

Try changing the ignition coil. Had same thing the other day. But a spark outside the cylinder does not need the pizzaz as when it is in the cylinder. When the air is compressed in cylinder and the molecules are packed much tighter together it takes a really hot spark to jump the gap. A weak spark will jump the gap when you test for spark outside the engine but not be able to do the job in the cylinder.

Car is fireing an getting gas but want crank

if it cant crank there is no spark , there will never be fueling.
The starter is first. does it crank over the crank shaft fast.
yes, i must guess.
then next is spark, with no spark , EFI cuts fuel. (no fires)
so if it cranks the crank shaft fast (look) then check spark now.
on all cylinders not just 1.
then post. results for step 3.

Car cranks but will not start

This could go several ways #1 engine mechanical check cranking compression should have 125 psi or greater in all cylinders if low but even squirt oil (1/2 oz.) in 1 cylinder and retest goes higher then rings sealing has been lost. if uneven check timing belt for jumped or misalignment. #2 electrical does it have electrical spark to plugs crank engine with a spark plug connected to spark plug wire laying plug on engine can you see spark? No test ignition coil wires with a logic probe both terminals will be red with key on one will flash red/green when engine cranking does not the primary ignition needs repair Ignition module? or pick-up coil/ crank sensor. #3 fuel system pressure and injection pulse. injection pulse can be tested with logic probe DONOT USE A TEST LIGHT YOU CAN RUIN THE ECU .

no engine option size stated, so i wing it..(generic is harder)
ok battery changed, no need for jumper cables now.
engine cranks robustly.
so no fire, i hate to tell you that word means (NOTHING)
there is fire to each spark plug (tip spark = fire) then there
is combustion fire , a goal on all cylinders.
so use the word spark , you then check spark at all cylinders.
if spark is gone on 1 cylinder work that.
if spark is gone on all cylinder we then scan the ECU.
RULE 1, no EFI car , runs fueling unit (IT) thinks(sic) there is spark (3 way checks) this is Crash and fire protection on call cars.
most books fail to say this very important feature in all modern cars.
so that is why spark is 1st. never ever done last.
you crank engine for 5 seconds.
release key, not off. the key yet.
and the scan tool, shows P0340/355 or any codes relate to spark
CMP./CKP ,etc.
and the rpm shows 250RPM cranking, yes,the scan tool can see
RPM cranking and is a TOP check , missed by many noobs.

so now you have spark
on all cylinders.
we cross fingers #1 is good, 150PSI compression on all cylinders, min.
and blame fueling.
A: is it flooding or starving???? the spark tips (i bet its tunedup, huh)
are dry or wet.
B: more later if you get this far.

just oneline says it. for 100 years now. (otto cycle engines)
(cranks ok, compression good,spark good x4,x6, fueling last)

97 plymoth neon crank sensor

If there is spark to cylinders 2 & 3 than it is not the cranks sensor. Cylinder 1 & 4 are on the same coil and cylinders 2 & 3 are on the other coil. Replacing lithe coil pack will likely solve you lack of spark on cylinders 1 & 4.

1993 chevy s10 blazer wont start turns over, changed fuel pump and brain

The first thing I would check is you are getting both spark and fuel at the cylinders. Remove one spark plug at a time and connect to it's plug wire while holding the end of the plug against a solid ground. Have someone crank the engine. If you see a good spark in the spark plug gap I would then make sure you have fuel at the cylinders. Cranking the engine for a bit. Then pull each spark plug out and check that fuel is on the end of the plug. If you have both fuel and spark at the cylinders I would look more at such things as timing belts, sensors, etc.

Fault codes p0443 and p0304 what are they?

I'm not certian about P0443 but P0304 is a misfire on cylinder #4. You may have to replace the coil that goes over the spark plug or it may just be the spark plug that is the problem any good shop will be able to find it.

4 stroke mower tipped onto side and now will not start

Start with the basic
Fuel, try starter fluid, see if it kicks
Fire, arc the spark plug while pulling the cord, 50/50 you get the zap.
Compresson, put you finger over the spark plug hole, pull the cord.
After you have tried these, come back and give me the model as well, some units are famous for certian problems.
I am betting fuel.

Ed ford falcon just done headgasket wont start only very small spark at plugs

Crank sensor to module to coil pack to plugs. There may be a failing component. I would check Crank Sensor first. If you are getting spark to all cylinders, then rule out coil packs, if only spark to one or two cylinders, then replace faulty pack.
