Make sure the electrical plug is clipped on securely.you may have damaged the coil-pack that you are calling plugs.remove it again and place one of the old plugs in it and see if you get a spark when someone cranks the engine for you.If not replace the coil pack.

SOURCE: changed spark plugs and wires now car wont start

I know this might be obvious but the obvious is often the problem. Did you replace the coil wire that goes from your coil to the distributor cap? Also, double check to be sure that your wires are connected in the correct order. A little more clarification might help. Does it turn over? Does it just click? When you turn the ignition key then let off does the car clunk or make a wheezing sound?

Ok ou changed the battery, the spark plugs and spark plug wire and drained the old gas out. You could also drain the fuel line, so that any gunk in it. Did you change the oil and the transmission fluid? Did you drain the radiator and flush it out before refilling it with water an anti-freeze? You need to find where the fuses are and change them all, because it is difficult to tell if a fuse is bad or not. The fuses are very old, and they can cause the car not to start. Do you have lights? Have you checked your alternator? If it is not working, the battery will drain and the car won't start. It's a cheap fix. Have you checked your hoses and clamps? If the problem is that it is not starting when you turn the key, the starter could be bad. You can test this by hot-wiring it (I'm sure you can find instructions online). Also, check your belts and make sure they are in good condition. If it has been sitting that long, the belts are probably dried out. They are not hard to change, or very expensive, if you do it yourself, but if they aren't too bad you can get some belt conditioner that will help. If I think of anything else, I will let you know.

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.

1997 mazda 626 won't start.


Are the plugs wet with fuel?
Check for spark. No spark? it may be the ignition module.

Plugs dry and spark present? No fuel?Spray a little starting fluid and see if it will run on that.
Then check pump fuses and for fuel pump noise.
