Most of the time if the check engine light will not come on it is a fuse or bad engine controller.if not i would check the fuel pump supply.

My car will not turnover and it smells like gas


Define turn over , the engine cranks over but doesn't start ? Turn the key to the start position and it does nothing ?

Are any warning lights lit on the instrument cluster , check engine , service vehicle soon , security etc... Look in the engine compartment , under the vehicle for fuel leakage , turn the key on then off to prime the fuel system an look for leaks on top of the engine , fuel pressure regulator ! If the engine does crank over an doesn't start , passably the spark plugs are fuel soaked - fouled !

1999 cougar cranks but will not start no spark and check engine light comes on with key and stays on while cranking


Engine light will stay on until the engine starts. Its a self test of the system. As far as it not starting it sounds like the ignition modual in the distributor has gone bad. (common in 90's) Also the control modual on the drivers side fenderwell is also known to burn out. Both control spark.

I have a 2000 mercury cougar that is not getting any spark. I changed the coil, crank and cam sensors. The hot wire to the coil is hot when the key is turned, but no spark is getting to the plugs.


You need to run the OBD2 Diagnostics. You will need to have someone hook up a scanner to the vehicle and retrieve the codes. This is the best place to start.

Engine turns over but won't start. plugs and wires changed


A diagnostic check of the vehicle will pinpoint your no starting problem,but if that isn't an option for you and you want to do the work yourself, follow these step's:
Check for spark WHILE TRYING TO CRANK THE ENGINE. If no spark is present,check to see if there is power coming from the switch during cranking. If you have spark,check to see if you are getting fuel. If you aren't getting fuel,check your fuel filter(it coud be clogged) and check ALL fuse's. If you aren't getting spark AND fuel,then check the crank sensor as it is the controller for spark and fuel delivery.

Running fine. Died and wont start. Cranks fine


can you hear the fuel pump kick on when you turn the key on but without crancking the engine? Generally the fuel pump will prime for about two to three seconds when you first turn the key on. if you don't hear it that's probably the culprit. If you do hear it it may be a bad pump. also should check to see if you have spark. You can do this by removing a plug wire and using another spark plug. Ground the plug to somthing metal and have someone crank the engine (making sure you are not touching the plug or metal) You should see a spark while cranking. Good luck

Car wont start possible ignition switch problem


Im assuming you're saying it will NOT start. If thats the case but the engine turns over then there could be three possible problems. Number one is no fuel or fuel pressure, number two, no spark from your spark plugs or number 3- bad ignition module. if these are good, then it could be more severe such as bad computer, bad crank shaft sensor....etc....in any case, checking for fuel problems or ignition problems is the first thing you should do.....most likely, it's one of those 2 faults.......good luck
