Fuel filter? If the check engine light is on then get it scanned for codes. If there are no codes then I'd start with sensors. Are your spark plugs and wires fairly new? They will do that too.

IF ALL PLUGS + WIRES + CAP AND ROTOR BEEN CHANGED. THE PROBLEM COULD BE IN THE IGNITION SYSTEM.LIKE THE IGNITION MODULE OR COIL.SCAN IT TO CHECK TO MAKE SURE PCM IS OPERATING.MAKE SURE FUEL PRESSURE IS 40 - 47 PSI.

SOURCE: car cut off and will not start

Since spraying starting fluid in the car it runs, tells you that the problem is fuel related. You need to check the fuel system step by step completely. It seems you have done some of the checks already, but you don't say weather you checked if you get fuel on both sides of the fuel filter. If you only get fuel on the inlet side and not the outlet, your fuel filter is clogged, so replace it and recheck. If no fuel on either side and you say the fuel pump works check the fuel pump relay. Don't just replace the computer before all checks are made the relay, fuse and grounds, etc. This can be tiresome but can also save alot of money if you check system and don't skip steps you'll find your problem.

New battery, new starter relay, checked starter its good. now what??


If the car is turning over and not starting or is it dead at the key nothing!! If it turns over but not starting check for spark at the plugs at least one if there is none check fuel pump sometimes if there's no spark the fuel pump will not pump its a safety thing so the engine won't fill /flood with gas other thing is timing chain / belt but I think if its a intripid 3.3 its a chain hard fix most places will say junk it because of the high labour cost but it can be done by yourself if done one same thing no fire timing chain broke

Feul problem


Lots of things could cause a no-start, Hendrik. Is your "Check Engine" light on? If so, please have someone get the OBD error codes from the car's computer.

Does it crank but not fire?

If it doesn't crank, check the battery condition, battery connections, ground connections to frame and engine block, starter solenoid, starter motor.

If it cranks, doublecheck your fuel pump installation. Make sure the new fuel pump is properly connected and properly electrically grounded. Look for a fuel pump fuse. Check for proper fuel pressure at the fuel rail, check the fuel flow rate. Check for spark, check or replace spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor, plug wires. Check valve timing, replace timing belt or chain if necessary. Check compression.

Ignition control module? Bad grounds? Fuel pump relay? Bad compression? Timing chain or belt? Better start troubleshooting and stop throwing parts at it. This could get expensive in a hurry.

Car wont start have p16 10 code and red ligth key stay on


The most common cause of a non-starting car is the battery. It is either weak, (low voltage) dead, (zero voltage) or has bad connections. (corroded or loose) I will assume you have a fully charged battery with good connections. (both to battery and starter relay)
If you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the starter relay and apply +12v from the battery to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. (not to be confused with your key switch). If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken. Picture of starter switch prong on the relay is pictured. NOTE: sparks are to be expected, so don't be too scared.

fuel system is faulty. Check for a clogged fuel filter, or if your fuel pump don't run at all, replace the "fuel pump relay". Sometimes your fuel pump will run, but be too weak to hold pressure, which will let your car idle somewhat, but be too weak to run the engine at speed or under load.

If your car is getting fuel, then the igniton system is faulty. Things to check or replace in the order that I would check them are here: They are the coil, igniton module, cam and crankshaft sensors, map sensor. Your car may be out of time due to a broken timing belt/chain, or it may have been loose and jumped a few teeth on their cogs. Check engine timing and condition of belt. These are not all of the igniton components, but the most common items that go bad. The rest of the components and sensors shouldn't cause your car not to start, but affect driveabiliy.

2000 saturn LS1...ignition seems to be locked up. Battery functions, as well as the fuel pump, ignition coil, replaced the starter and crank sensor, and timing gears chain and water pump were all replaced...


Check power to starter motor and solenoid. If no power present on engine crank, then check ignition barrel, key and main fuses.If power present on cranking, but starter motor does not energize, then check starter connections and replace starter motor and solenoid if necessary.
Double check starter motor operation with starter removed from the engine. If it works, then check engine condition as this may be seized.

My 02 Alero 2.2 won't start....replaced battery and had the starter tested which is fine...could it be the timing chain?


Ok you should check for fuel pressure and /or spark if you do not have fuel pressure then you might want to check fuses or fuel pump if you have fuel pressure not have any spark! Then you may want to check your spark module is bolted to the top of the valve cover. I don't think it would be the timing chain I would start with checking for fuel pressure and your spark module or just replace it if you have no spark. I hope this helps!

Won't start. Starter turns over, but engine won't catch. Have checked starter, coil, spark plug wires, spark plugs, and charged the battery completely. Fuel filter and pump are good. White smoke comes out...


Check for spark-Check if gasoline gets to the injectors, fuel and spark If you are likely to be out of time so you have to check the position of the rotor or revise the chain belt ifs 2.4 or if time is 3.0.

Does my 1987 ford bronco 2 auto,4x4 have a timing


Belt, remove the the front plastic cover which covers the Timing Belt to see if the belt is stripped of teeth, same as the old Ford Pinto motor.. remove dist cap and watch rotor rotation, see if it is spinning... Ignition Modules are a major issue with those in that year also... check module also...

Does it crank the engine ? If not take a look at the starter connections and the starter.Replace the starter if nessesary.
Ok, now that you got the most common problems out of the way, you should check for spark at the spark plugs. Remove a spark plug and attached to the wire. Get a good pair of rubber gloves and put the thread of the plug to ground and crank the engine. The spark plug should spark a bluish spark. If it has an orange spark the spark plug or wire may be bad. if it does spark fairly good.

Check the fuel pump. if it has an electric fuel pump you should hear it when you turn the switch to on. It is a whirring sound. if you can't hear it. the Pump is bad or the shutoff valve turned off the fuel system. Check it to see if the button is up. If it is then the valve clicked off. Press it down. If it is down and there is no fuel the fuel pump is bad.

If it is a mechanical pump, take off the hose to the carb if it does have one. crank the engine . It should pump gas right away.

If it does have spark or fuel to the sytem, then it is a sensor or other problem.You will have to get a trouble code for it. to narrow everything down.

Check the timing belt or chain to see if it is still good and tight. If it is not your timing belt or chain skipped or cut off. you will have to replace it.

I hope you can get some help from this info . good luck
