My guess would be either a coil pack maybe cracked ( wet wheather will make it unstable) or one/more spark plug wire(s) are loose or bad... either way it's a spark issue, cleaning your spark plugs might help... the worse it could be; is if you're computer fried (no signal to relay sparks and determining the delay timing and idle speeds and so on... )...start with the basic stuff, if you can't find a dirrectly spark related issue, you're best bet is to bring it to a garrage.

Use a spark tester and see if there is a blue spark.if it is flooded,you have to wait for the fuel evaporates for 15 min .the plugs will not fire if wet.

Daughter ran 97 ranger out of gas, now it wont start, reset the fuel pump button and have gas shooting out of releif vavle, but still wont start, tried many times. Please help. Thanks


You have fuel at the rail, now it's time to see if it's making it past the injectors. Disconnect the air intake duct from the throttle body. Have an assistant crank the engine over while opening the throttle slightly. Spray starting fluid into the throttle body and see if the engine attempts to start. If it does, then the injectors are not firing. The reason the injectors are not firing could be :
1. Blown injector fuse (sometimes marked "INJ").
2. Bad crank sensor.
3. No power to computer.
4. Computer problem (bad injector drivers).
If you have tried to start the vehicle many times, then you should start to smell fuel if it is getting into the engine. If you smell fuel, then let it sit for a while and try checking for spark. An inexpensive spark tester can be purchased from most parts stores. The reason for no spark could be :
1. Blown ignition fuse (sometimes marked "IGN").
2. Failed ignition module.
3. bad crank sensor.
4. bad ignition switch.
If everything checks out, then try disconnecting the battery for at least 20min. the longer the better. If the engine still wont start, then more advanced diagnostics will be needed to determine the problem. I hope that this information is helpful and thank you for using Fixya.com.
WARNING : Wear safety glasses when performing the starting fluid test. Keep hands and loose clothing away from moving engine parts and cooling fan motor. Use caution when working around distributorless ignition systems. These systems produce extremely high voltages which can cause severe injury or even death.

I have a 2003 civic Honda .engine cranking but wont start.Fuel and Ignition were check already no problem was found. Is it maybe because I have change the original alarm of my car to a new alarm? Do I need...


I would check your firing order, and all the stuff with the distributor, no loose connections and stuff, check the condition of all your plugs, make sure they are gapped correctly, check everything, maybe your injectors are clogged or broken? (unlikely but still check it out) then at last check for compression. All you need is fuel, spark and compression to fire. Check all cylinders to make sure they are ok on everything.

Get your tools (for removing a spark plug) ready. Try to start the engine, pumping the accelerator a little while you crank. Take a spark plug out. Is the spark plug wet with gas (smell fuel)? If so, you are getting fuel. Hook the spark plug you just took out up to the coil, lay it on the engine where it will be grounded to the metal. Get someone to crank the engine, and check for spark at the end of the plug. If there is a good spark, that eliminates another problem (don't crank the engine, or let it run too long with the plug out). If you have spark, and fuel, either the timing is way off (broken, slipped timing belt/chain), or you have no compression (internal engine).

Do you have a "Check Engine" light, or any other warning light on? Recently you make any work there or disconnected the battery? Are you thniking in Theft, Immobilizer or Passlock security alarm? Is this occurrs and the keys isn't work, its need to re-programmed, for this need to visit your Honda dealer.

Keep us updated.

Engine cranks but wont start


This may be a result of no fuel or no spark. To test, remove a spark plug after turning the engine over for a few turns and smell it. If it smells like gas, it's a spark problem, if not you should check your fuel lines for leaks or your fuel pump. A quick way to test the fuel pump is to put the key in the ignition, turn it to "on" but don't try to start the car and listen for the pump to "prime" the system. It will sound like a low humm.

To check for spark, remove a plug and hold it against the engine block while someone tries to start the car (only turn the engine over once or twice while doing this!). If you are getting spark, you should see it. If you aren't, check the firing order, the distributor cap/coil packs, wires, and the plugs themselves.

I hope that helps and good luck!

Engine cranks but won't start


Most possible is your cam or crank sensor. Check foro signal and sync between them. I would start with the crank sensor first

Engine cranks, will not start


I would do a sensor check. Not sure specifically on this vehicle, but at least the german ones do a Cold temperature sensor, and inject more fuel into the cylinder to get the engine started
