Went through car wash the other day. An hour of so later the car started idling real rough and started dying at stops. Pulled into parking lot and it died. Will turn over strong (new battery) but will not catch. Just had a used hood put on car at body shop and the driver's side hood edge does not seat fully closed (gap). More flush on the passengers side. Could water from auto car wash have gotten under neath the hood and shorted out something? It has set for 2 days and will still just turn over and not start????

Golfcart cranks but not starting.

Before doing anything, make sure that the timing and valves are properly adjusted. THEN, you need to check the ignition system and the fuel delivery systems for proper operation.You need spark and fuel delivery for that puppy to run. Did you check the ignition coil to make sure it is good? Are you getting a strong spark at the plug? Did you try starter fluid? Is new carb properly adjusted?

We had to replace the powersteering pump and serpentine belt on 01 volvo s80. The timing belt is a lil warn but funtional and timing is set. The car will still not start. What else should we check.

Changing a belt and pump should not cause a no start situation unless there was something unplugged/disconnected during install that wasn't hooked back up. You need to determine whether there is spark and fuel present. Remove a spark plug wire/coil and crank engine. You should see/hear a spark from the coil/plugwire if spark ok. You then must check for fuel pressure from the test port on the fuel rail ( if equipped ) to determine fuel supply. Diagnostics will then have to be conducted on what is missing

Starter is bad but can get engine to turn over but will not start, belt to the front of engine is good, is this the cam belt or timing belt? is there two different belts.1999 Mitsubishi diamante 6cyc

michael_cass_276.jpgOnly one belt for timing...

First you have to determine weather you have a FUEL problem or (ELECTRICAL)Spark problem ??

Pull the coil wire off or a easy to get to spark plug wire, Lay it close to were you pulled it off of (Do not hold or touch you may get SHOCKED) and crank motor (need two people) look and listen for a spark, if you see or here a spark, then go to next step which will be to check for Fuel (gas). Be very careful when checking fuel, as most lines are under pressure and may cause bodily harm such as BURNS to EYES and SKIN!! Loosen or pull the inlet fuel line off and put rag over line. Some fuel injected vehicles have a fuel rail the has a valve that looks like a tire valve. Put a rag over this valve and push it in with a small screw driver and have someone crank motor a couple of times to see if fuel is coming out.

If NO Spark---Could be a lot of things Points (older vehicles) Modules, Coils, Crank Sensors, ECT......

If NO Fuel---- Could be Clogged fuel filter, Fuel Pump, Fuel pump Relay, Fuse, ECT..........

Hope this helps you ??

92 buick lesabre ran great to store, when leaving, starting car resultedin chuging and popping noise, then fail to start. very good cranking speed. lots of gas in tank. i hear fuel pump operating, and gas...

I would recommend that you check to see if you are getting spark from the coil/coil packs. If this is not the issue, then you may be looking at a timing problem.

I have a 1995 dodge neon that would not start after a cold week of sitting. When trying to start it, i decided that the battery was frozen... got a new battery and replaced it... however did not tighten...

When you turn it over by hand it is getting "stuck" on the compression stroke. Take out all the spark plugs and it should turn over easily just in case your "stuck" situation is something more sinister like a broken timing belt causing the valves to hit the pistons (most unlikely). You can then check the condition of the plugs making sure they are not fouled and by cranking the engine with the starter motor to check the spark. You are looking for a nice strong blue regular spark. A small weak spark may not be sufficient to make the engine fire. If the spark is weak take take out the coil lead from the distributor and as it is being cranked see if a strong spark is thrown when you hold the end 6mm away from a grounding point. Work your way either side depending on the spark result to determing where you are loosing spark. If the spark is ok try some starting fluid to see if you can get the engine to fire. If it fires on starting fluid but won't run then the fuel circuit is suspect. If you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail you need to check the injectors are pulsing. You can bye a noid light which plugs into the injector and flashes every time a pulse is received. These cost about $20 form the auto shop. My bet is your sensors are ok though...

93 Jeep Grand Cherokee Won't start

Are you getting spark from coil wire when cranking? If so, check the cap & rotor. If not, the most common failure is the crank sensor. If you have a 4,0, you can find it on the drivers side of the bellhousing, in line with the flywheel, just where it's annoying to work on. There is a test you can make, but I don't have the specific test values or the correct terminals to check. (you can find that info in any half decent manual.
Good luck
