Difficult one could be a multitude of problems from a supply problem to the ECU or the factory immobiliser has cut in ...have you check the knock sensor ?? dont know where it is on theis model but its like a switch that shuts everything down in a accident

1998 Suzuki Esteem ran out of gas. Still won't start after putting in gas. Is there a way to prime it.


putting gas where?
gas tank
or doing the Test fuel procedures?
is this a barn find/ field found car, or it ran perfect last week, and DD for months. (daily driver?) all this maters and is unstated.
1.6L or 1.8L engine, G16 or J18 suzuki enignes? major different they are.
with old engines, we do this and win every time.

all FUSES good, (EFI and spark fuses up to 3 or more)

1: compression test, sparks out , wide open throttle. warm to hot engine.
180psi on all,, good, if like 90, the timing belt slipped. if J18. we have
3 folks now on our forum that managed to slip a chain (they ingored huge noises from engine,,,, amazing)
2: spark got good on all 4 cylinders. and timed right not guessed at
using a real tool called a timing light for 20 bucks.
3: with fuel pump relay pulled i test engine on test fuel.
runs for 3 seconds, each spray and SOUNDS good.
ok it does that.. (this avoids flooding issues)
4: i put back the fuel pump relay.
and it dont start. i check for injection,
i find all injectors, dead.
the ECU is cutting injection,
i connect scan tool and see the CKP DTC errors , the CKP is dead
or CMP on G16. dead. the ECU reports them cranking only, on a dead engine.
the ECU will cut fuel if it seen spark dead.
the ECU will cut fuel if the TPS sensors signals wide open throttle cranking
i checked all that and its good.
i find fuel pressure a 0 , cranking, (one more cheap tool)
i find 12vdc good to pump cranking (a 10 buck meter at walfart)
the pump is bad. no the wires are corroded. at the pump line....
super common on old cars.

this is 1 example path of 100s.

INJECTORS ARE NOT WORKING


wow no year, are you kidding? and worse no car body. wow. x2.
what does not working mean, they dont squirt
or they lack 12vdc on one side and the NOID signals on other are dead.
all dead means. (no squirts)
1: blown fuse.
2: main relay dead.
3: the ECU wants them dead.
4: fuel pump dead or ECU wants it dead.

what does want mean.
want means. the ECU logic, halts injection for these reasons.
A: lost spark.
b: lost CMP or CKP sensors, which kills spark
c: cranking wide open throttle ,cancel injections for magic secret unflood mode.

so , why did you start (if you did) at injectors, they are last to work.
all the above most work for or the ECU cuts fuel.
the ecu cuts fuel to prevent CRASH and BURN, as seen on TV.

so you check spark and you got what?
good, ? one dead , all dead?
if spark is all dead, scan the PCM.
does it show, P0340/355 DTC errors, for dead cmp, or ckp>
that be first , top of list after fuse checks.


tell car , year, and all symptoms, ?car will not start and spark is ////???????????

There is no simple answer, there are to many variables. If you have access to a scan tool, pulling the codes should help. Without them its back to old school hunt and peck method. At this point we need to narrow down the problem. You need to test for spark.
  1. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires from the spark plugs.
  2. Remove the spark plugs and install the spark plug wires to each spark plug.
  3. Ground (do not hold spark plug) the spark plug; check if spark occurs while engine is being cranked.
Crank the engine for no more than 2 seconds at a time to prevent flooding the engine with gasoline.
If you have spark, You will want to make sure you have fuel injector pulse, along with fuel pressure. If you have spark ..simply spray some starting fluid in through the air filter and hold the gas pedal to the floor and crank it over while spraying. If it fires up, you know it is fuel related( fuel pump, regulator, or ECM if no injector pulse) . If you have no spark then look at ignition coil connection and trace through to the distributor( if equipped ). The crank shaft sensor has a tendency to fail on these as well. This should give you a few things to test and check to start you on your way to narrowing it down. If you have no spark then look at ignition coil connection for power and trace through to the distributor( if equipped ). If it is DIS( no distributor). It may be the Crank sensor or the ECU. The crank shaft sensor has a tendency to fail on these as well.
The ECU uses the signal sent from the Crank sensor to trigger the spark and fuel injectors. ( make certain you have checked all fuses)

Given the year of the Montero I expect the ECU has failed or the component within the distributor which tells the ECU when to send a spark. Check for spark or fuel injector pulse. To check fuel injector pulse rent NOID lights from auto parts store. If no pulse I expect the Distributor if no fuel I expect the ECU

It has nothing to do with ECU and immobiliser even if you turn your ECU OFF your car will start and will your but not properly without CPU your car will work in emergency mode. try finding Idle sensors and check them if they are ok

1990 montero no start. No power to open injectors, good fuel pump


Check the injector pulses with an osciliscope. If you arent getting a pulse check the ecu. I have cooked 2 of them. One killed my ignition but had good fuel. the second time it wouldnt open the injectors but had good spark. A quick check is to take the ecu out and take the cover off. then look for burnt electrical components.
