Why not check all cylinder for spark , no engine stated, so ive no idea at all if this is a COPS engine (coil over plug)
to run any Otto cycle engine, it takes spark at ALL cylinders not just 1.
if in the USA<(unstated) any $9 scan too you can crank engine.
for 5seconds, release key and it will tell you if spark is bad.
it can do that for the precursers to spark.
from coil primary all the way back to CMP and CkP sensors.

learn to bring a scan tool in to diagnosis and save a fortune in guessed parts. and wasted weekends.
you can buy , rent and barrow scan tools here, in USA>
there is never a reason to work blind here, ever. not for $9,or free.

engines not stated are
2.0 L I4 K20A4
2.2 L turbodiesel I4
2.4 L I4 K24A

which one? we can go to great details once told.
one trick to work cars, is to pretend the sheet metal and plastic
are missing on the car, that is what we are fixing.
and with that gone and tranny back, and suspension gone'
its and engine and EFI.

neither disclosed, nor even country.
other countries have different parts, and are not even OBD2 compliant until 2001 or even 2006
thats ok, only 2 posts in 10,000 even tell country.

Hi ,One sugestion is to chech your timing belt by taking the oil cap of and look if the valvas move when some one else crank the enginee,If they dont move the belt is bad , if they move check for fuel delivery and ignition module. Good Luck.

The Main Relay under the dash, close to the steering. Brown or Gray box with about 8 wires tend to go bad at relay contacts inside. To troubleshoot, turn ignition key to on position and tap the relay box, you should hear fuel pump activate. If it starts, the relay is bad. If it does'nt, you need to check voltage and grounds at relay wires. Everything else you mentioned seems to be okay. I had 3 hondas, different years that have done the same thing. Good luck

SOURCE: Engine turns over, won't start, no fire at plugs

What are you wondering is correct. Let check the coil first. if coil is good the there is a problem with the ignition module. If the ignition module is good then a problem with the crankshaft sensor. The coil can be checked by measure resistance of the terminals of the primary coil and secondary coil separately to see if it open. To check if it can generate a spark, once you identify the primary coil terminal, run 12 V wire to these terminal, connect a spark plug to the secondary coil, by just leaving a spark plug with connected with spark plug wire and let it touch the engine chassis. Now you have to make pulses at the 12 volts connection by making a break and connection several time to turn it on and off to generate the spark at spark plug. The ignition module is supposed to do what you are doing now to generate the spark. If it is bad, it can't do what you did then a spark is not generated. For the crankshaft sensor, only the shop can tell you it is bad or not. Good luck.

SOURCE: 1995 Honda Accord 4 Cyl Auto does not start.

these hondas have 3 common problems with no start if the car spins over but dosen't start you have 3 things to look at

  1. Ignition Switch
  2. The Distributor
  3. The PGMFI Relay.
Check these three things and get back to us.

Testimonial: "It was the PGFMI Relay. Took it out and inserted it back and the car started. It was probably stuck and has been running fine ever since. Thank you."

Starter fluid, if used, simulates fuel going into the throttle body or carburetor.

If starter fluid is present in the intake manifold and the car doesn't start when the 4 spark plugs have bright spark, then the fuel is not getting to the engine somehow. This indicates a bad fuel pump or blown fuse for the fuel pump or wiring to it. It could also mean that the fuel injector(s) are plugged or not firing due to the computer not working right.

Do you hear the fuel pump working when the ignition key is turned to ignition? What is the pressure using a gauge?

If the engine's starter cranks the engine then the starter is ok.

If the engine cranks and cranks and won't start, possible timing belt skipped a few teeth or broke.

Check the fuel injectors by listening to them clicking with a stethoscope. If they don't then having pressure present from the fuel pump is not enough to allow the engine to start and run on its own power.

Good luck on this repair on startability.

If it turns, then the battery is OK. Either spark plugs are not firing in proper order (wrong firing order), no power to spark plugs, or no fuel because of fuel restrictions (dirty fuel filter). Inspect the air filter to ascertain its not clogged air. If you smell gas, then you saturated the spark plugs, which is why it refuses to run.
Let it sit for half hour to let spark plugs dry. Inspect to ascertain its not dirty spark plugs, which will also prevent engine from running. After ascertaining its proper firing order, spark plugs are clean, and there's power to distributor cap, ascertain there's fuel in fuel lines by squirting half second (short squirt) of starting fluid into air filter. Close the air filter housing to trap flammable starting fluid gas. Turn engine without giving throttle. Let starting fluid be ignited by spark plugs. If it won't start, then spark plugs are not firing to ignite starting fluid gas. If it starts briefly, but won't run when you give throttle, but catches when a 2nd person squirts more starting fluid into air filter just before engine stalls, then its a fuel restriction issue or no fuel in fuel lines.

96 tahoe . It will not crank up unless I pour gas into the throttle body . Once it cranks it will run untill I shut it off but want crank by itself . Why


First, lets be clear with terms. To crank is to turn the engine over, you can do this manually with a wrench on many vehicles. It requires no spark or air. To turn over or to fire is when you achieve combustion. Example: You could pull the spark plugs on a vehicle and turn the key and it would crank, but it wouldn't fire or turn over.

Now it sounds to me like your vehicle is cranking but not firing unless you pour gas in it. My first thoughts are fuel system. I'm assuming it can't be fuel pump because it runs once it fires. Perhaps the fuel pump isn't priming itself, or perhaps somehow air is getting in the line between the injector and fuel pump? Test the fuel pump first by turning the car from off to on (not starting, just on). You will usually hear a short buzzing noise coming from the engine bay that stops shortly afterwards, that's your fuel pump pressurizing the line. (Pro Tip: If you ever try to take your key from off to straight to start and the vehicle doesn't start on the first try, but does the second time no problem, try delaying at on for a moment before trying to start. This gives your fuel pump time to pressurize the line.) Assuming your fuel pump is charging the line, the next place to look would be at the path the fuel takes to the throttle body. When you crank it over and it doesn't start, are you getting any fuel? If you can't see where the fuel enters the system try smelling the exhaust while cranking without it firing, if it smells of fuel you're good and need to look at air flow and spark, if not it's a fuel issue.

Past that, I'll leave it to someone more experienced than myself, but that would be how I troubleshot my own vehicle.

My 2002 chevy 1500 van , 4.3 liter v6, will not fire. ran great, no signs of trouble leding up to now. Cranks,cranks, & cranks but no sputter, fire, anything


I would check and be sure I had fire to the plugs and fuel to the throttle body. I read what you wrote about the fuel pump but then on the end of the description where you put gas in the van the pump might not be working. If so you could have a bad wire to the fuel pump or a plugged fuel filter. Once you verify those items I would pull the 02 sensor ahead of the catalytic converter in the exhaust and make sure the cat or muffler is not plugged. If they are it will put back pressure on the engine and not allow fuel into the cyl. to fire.

My crank shaft is rotating twise the crank shaft. HOW MY 1342 FIRING WILL OCCURE?, I can spare only 30 digree for charge and spark plug contact. THERE ARE ONLY 2+2 CYLINDER. 180 DIGREE APPART KINDLY REPLY...


Your crankshaft turns 2x times the camshaft. Put it this way as # 1 cylinder reaches TDC (top dead center) of the firing/compression stroke, and this will be after a (8 degs BTDC) spark to ignite the air/fuel mix, the # 3 cyl. will be at BDC of the intake stroke and as #1 begins its power down stroke, (during explosion of air/fuel mix), #3 begins its compression up stroke, the #4 cyl. will be coming down with #1 cyl. but #4 will be in the beginning of its intake down stroke, and #2 cyl. will be coming up with #3 but #2will be in its BDC of the exhaust stroke. Which has just fired previously to #1. 1342134213421342 etc. Now the cam turns to open / close the valves; In the outline above, #1 cyl. valves will both be closed. #3 cyl. will have the intake starting to close at this point. #4 cyl. will just be starting to open its intake valve, and #2 will be starting to open its exhaust valve. Is all this clear as mud? So as the crank makes one full rotation (in a 4cyl. engine) only the firing of one cylinder has happened.and at every rotation one cyl. will fire. So #1 at TDC then one full rotation, #1 back at TDC, but this TDC is half of its 4 cycles, (1)Intake, (2)compression, (3)power, (4)exhaust. this 1234 refers to the 4 cycles of the rotation not firing order.

Need to start a car 1965 mustang that has not been started in 5 years what should i do first. iI have no idea whats wrong with it.


change old oil and filter make sure all spark plug wires are there and look ok take spark plug out and pour little amounts of marvel mystery oil down into cyl. then turn engine over acouple times if it has a oil pressure guage make sure with spark plugs out and engine turning that you have some oil pressure.then take some fuel line and connect it to the fuel pump on the side of the engine you most take off line going to the fuel tank in order to do this then put all but one spark plug back in the put all the wires on then the one plug that you left out check for spark by installing the wire on the plug and setting the plug on something metal on the car (grounded) the turn the engine over and look if the plug is making a spark if so put it all back together. then with that line you put on the fuel pump stick it into a gas can with plenty of fuel then pour a tiny amont into the carb and try to start

Mazda 626 2.2L replaced head gasket,have compression of 120psi across all cyl, have fuel,spark turns over but no start checked timmming,marks #1 cyl up crank at TDC aligned on mark?


I can think of two possible causes:
1 - Assuming you are getting spark at the plugs, the distributor may be reinstalled 180 deg off.
2 - Unlikely but - Assuming you are getting fuel into the cylinders, the fuel injector connectors were reinstalled improperly and are firing out of sequence. If you are not getting fuel into the cylinders, it's something else.
