Yes it is getting gas when you turn the key but your fuel pump has two setting one for turning the over and one for the running position sounds like fuel pump is not working in run setting check wire harness to pump first if there is power there then check fuel pump.

Driving car on freeway heard a ping car dies out. Car wont turn over. Changed gas fuel in in gas tank, still wont turn over, changed the crank shaft sensor and still wont turn over but the is getting gas...


turn over or run
turning over is cranking but not starting/running
not turning over indicates seized motor , bad battery starter motor problems , bad ground
turning over is cranking but not starting ---broken timing belt/chain, crank/cam position sensors , no fuel , no spark , no injector operation
best run the fault codes as the fauty will be recorded there

Starts but won't stay running


Turn off all your accesories and turn the key forward, but dont start it. You should hear the pump kick on for 2-3 seconds. Prime the system a few times then start it. This will narrow your diagnosis

She almost starts, then dies.


No on the question about the starter being the cause.
You said you poured gas in - I assume you mean in the tank.
If it sounds like it wants to start we will assume the plugs are getting spark from the dist cap. If the pump is failing, you may not have enough fuel pressure.
I would either check fuel pressure or pour some fuel into the throttle body and try it. You could also use carb cleaner in a spray can.
You need to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem to proceed.

87 911 carrera will turn over but wont start.... has no spark from coil, but has 12 volts to coil with key on.


If the car is getting power from the battery(lights turn on; radio turns on) when you turn the key, then it is your starter or gas distributor. To test that, you need to pour a little gas right in the hole where the engine and intake meet. Pour a little gas in that hole. If it starts up, then it is your gas distributor that is the problem not giving gas to the engine. If it doesn't start up with gas in the engine, then it is your starter. Either will be $100-$200 fix at a shop.

2001 ford escort. engine turns over but will not start. pulled the plugs and motor gets good compression,replace plugs and wires,still nothing, then i put new timing belt-still nothing, checked fuel filter...


The engine needs three things to run, fuel, air and a spark at the right moment. Check the static timing of the motor, if those marks line up. You did not say you were getting any spark at the plugs. If you have spark, then try a little starting fuild into the intake while turning it over. If you have fuel delivery to the cylinders, the spark is coming at the right moment then it should be running. Any error codes set?

Wont start


First things first.You need to find out if its getting spark and fuel.You can find out if its getting spark by taking any plug wire off and holding it just above the plug.have someone else try to start the car.if you see spark then you have it.for fuel look on the fuel rail.that is located on the top of the motor.its metal. look for something resembling a valve stem on it.push in the schrader valve and have someone turn the key off and on if fuel comes out you have fuel

My 1999 GMC Sierra wont start. It has the 5.3l V8


Sounds like a security problem that is preventing starting. It will run for a few seconds and then die.

Car died and seems like it wants to turn over but won't


Confirm fuel pressure reading with a gauge. Post the psi readings. Confirm spark is reaching the plugs. Ignition coils and modules are a problem area in these cars.
