Need to inspect for healthy blue/white spark at each plug, also test fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Let me know results of these inspections.

My 2000 honda civic wont turn over and has no spark but the ignition coil and modual are both fine


Won't turn over? Do you mean the starter won't crank the engine over?

Or the engine cranks over and won't start, and you have tested for spark when cranking and have no spark? And then you have tested the coil and ignition module, and they tested out good? Am I on the right page here? If so, maybe the next thing to check would be the crank position sensor. The ecu (computer) signals the ignitor (ignition module) when to initiate spark after it digests the signals from the crank position sensor and the cam position sensor.

New coolant fan and new control module but coolant fan does not work on my 2002 ford escort zx2


Try checking the fuse box under the hood. It should have a fuse marked cooling fan or cooling system. If the car does start, that means the computer isn't out, but maybe there is a bad relay by the fan or in the circuit or even the temp sensor may be bad. The fan won't run until the temp is high enough; usually by the time the thermostat opens.

1985 toyota 4runner running too lean


Maybe it's not running lean. Maybe it's misfiring. Since you put in new fuel parts and that didn't help, maybe there is an ignition component that fails when it gets hot. A bad coil can do this, also the igniter-rarely, admittedly, but you could have it tested. When it stalls and won't start, if you check for spark and find none, it would confirm an ignition problem.
I hope you find it. Post back and let us know.

Won't start no spark


Check all your fuses, under the hood and at the fuse panel for ign fuse or ecm fuse and make sure they are'nt blown, then check for power to ign module which is under the coil paks, should be pink wire. good luck...sounds like maybe your ign module or crank sensor may have gone bad.

This is a classic example of a failed or failing antitheft system. Changing out the ignition can cause this. And maybe the ignition you pulled out was failing also. Go to this link, I'm sure you'll find what you are looking for.

1999 chevy k2500. changed spark plugs 4 times in 7 months. Runs good for a week then doesn't start. Changed spider, throttle body sensor. Still has no codes and once again won't start.


The next time it won't start ,pull a sparkplug wire and see if you're getting fire.Then we'll known whether its a ignition or fuel problem and go from there.

My 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan will crank but won't start.


Hi, if an engine cranks but refuses to start, it lacks ignition, fuel or compression. When the engine cranks normally but won't start, you need to check ignition, fuel and compression. Ignition is easy enough to check with a spark tester or by positioning a plug wire near a good ground. No spark? The most likely causes would be a failed ignition module, distributor pickup or crankshaft position (CKP) sensor.

Well this motor has 2 coils so i don't think both went at the same time unless the ignition control module is bad because this is what tells which coil to fire and when.So i would have ignition control module tested.Its either that or the cam position sensor and sense you did'nt get any trouble codes in the computer about the cam sensor i would like it would be the ignition control module.You can get these from www.rockauto.com for about $100.00
