Locate your vehicle's computer connector (ALDL), most are on the lower driver's side. In some vehicles you might need to look around a little, on the passenger's side, and around the center console under a plastic cover. For more information, check your owner's manual. This device gathers information that was stored in your carsECM. This information ortrouble code can inform you the system or sensor that is malfunctioning. Look up the code in our diagnostic trouble code chart. After repairs have been made use the code scanner to clear trouble codes and recheck system. B. Testing Fuel Pressure. Test for proper fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge. Connect the gauge to the test port on the fuel rail. Fuel pressure reading's very depending on the system your in our vehicle, but most throttle body injection cars (TBI) are between 13 psi and 17 psi. and most (DPI) direct port injection systems are between 40 psi and 55 psi. To find out your vehicle system fuel pressure consult arepair manual. If little fuel pressure is present the fuel pump needs to be replaced.

C. Test for Weak Ignition Spark
. A weak ignition system can be a sign of a failing ignition component. Remove spark plug wire and insert an extra spark plug into end of wire, attach spark plug to engine ground then crank engine. You should observe blue spark between spark plug gap. If a yellow spark is observed, your ignition coil is weak and needs to be replaced. If your spark is not consistent you may need a ignition module.

D. Inspect the Main ECM Relay
. If the ECM relay fails it will shut down the engine management system. This relay carries high amperage and is prone to failure. To test install new relay then test drive to recheck symptoms.

E. Testing the Ignition Switch
. This test requires a electronic test light. When vehicle dies test the power side (+) of your ignition coil with the key on, the test light should illuminate. If your test light is not lighting suspect your ignition switch or ignition relay. To trouble shoot this condition you will needwiring schematic for your car.

SOURCE: 86 subaru gl wagon not firing.

I have the same problem with my 86 GL 4WD. One day it started to turn, and then lost all power. I couldn't even turn on the lights. I have played with the ignition switch wires, and gotten it to fire. I think there may be a short somewhere in the switch or the wires to the harness, but I have not isolated it yet. You might check your ignition switch and wiring...

SOURCE: 91 Subaru will not start

hi there have you tried sitting in car with doors shut turn ign on & listen for fuel pump priming up you will hear a buzzing noise for 5 secs then stops if you don't you will need to check wiring to see if there is power going to fuel pump & check earth wire might be black if you are getting power to these wires then its possible its the fuel pump if not you will need to inv it further (try fuses first).

SOURCE: 91 LEGACY STARTED RUNNING ROUGH

The cylinders are numbered as on the spark pack you changed. You might have done better putting the seafoam in the tank as an injector cleaner. Not sure why you changed so many parts, you seem to know how to get the codes from test connector lead hookup and the blink pattern. You might also want to check the fuel rail pressure and the crank and cam angle sensors. Before replacing the injector, swap the #4 injector with the adjacent one and see it the code moves with the injector or stays put. If the code stays on #4, then check the injector wiring, if it moves clean or replace the injector.

1997 Chevy Silverado will not start replaced fuel pump also replaced spider injectors. Call shut down while driving


Does the engine have spark to the spark plugs? Is there 12 volts to the coil and is the coil being triggered on the ground side? Check to see if the coil is sending spark to the distributor. Several more things to check that will not let the truck start. Check these and get back with me and I will help you more if needed. Good luck.

Car ran fine driving down the road lost and died wohld not restart but cranked until battery went dead jump start still crank no start where should i look first


Check your fuel filter. If it has not been changed for awhile, it may be plugged. The car would then be starved for fuel and quit. After sitting for awhile, enough fuel may get through, but after running a short time it will die again for lack of fuel.
Another thing to check is your ability to get spark to the spark plugs. You coil(s) may have died and need to be replaced.
You could also have a crack in your distributor cap if you have one and the spark is shorting to ground. You may also have faulty spark plug wires that need to be replaced. You could also have a blown fuse to feeds battery power to the spark coil. You could also have an open ballast resistor in line with your spark coil and it needs to be replaced. Gas or Spark, but how the spark is generated really depends a lot on the car. Here's a test you can run to check for whether your car is starved for gas: Get a can of starter fuel and spray a couple of puffs (small amount) into your air cleaner. Once the battery is charged, try starting it. If it starts running and then dies, you can be pretty sure you have a gas problem.
One last possibility is that your exhaust is totally plugged. Do you feel or can an assistant feel any puffs or unburned exhaust coming out of the tail pipe? If no vapors come out, it could be plugged.
Oh, one other thing it could be. Your plugs may be flooded, especially if you pumped the gas pedal and it is a new model car. If it smells strongly of gas, your spark plugs may be wet (flooded) with gas. In that case, remove all spark plugs, disconnect your spark system, turn the engine over to blow out excess fuel, dry your spark plugs and reinstall them.

2001 saturn dies after it starts.restart it and dies ,


A car that starts over but doesn't start and dies , in many cases this problem will be due to a bad fuel pump, a broken timing belt, an inoperative cam sensor or crank sensor. Also this problems are related to faulty spark plug. Check the spark at spark plugs when you start the car. Do you notice any spark. Actually you should see. If in case there is no spark then it's a spark plug problem. Also the coil pack gives power to spark plug. So check the voltage at coil pack. It will show 12 volt.If there is no voltage noticed at coil pack then its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced.If all the possible options checked out ok then check the car starter. The starter gets power from battery to start the care. If the starter is faulty then it will not let the car to start. Also check and confirm that there is fuel in the car. If it very low fuel then in some cases this causes the problem. Also check and confirm that fuel pump is functioning properly and the fuel filter is not clogged. One of the easiest ways to check for a fuel pump related problem is to spray a little starting fluid into the air intake while trying to start the car. If the car starts momentarily, then there's a good chance the fuel pump is not working or the car is out of gas. You can also listen for the fuel pump's humming sound when the key is first turned on. Also if a inoperative fuel pump is suspected, a good technician will always check to verify there is power and ground being supplied to the pump, to eliminate the possibility of a bad relay or electrical issue. Fuel pressure can be checked with a pressure gage and if there is pressure, pulse can be checked at the fuel injectors in several ways including the most common, with the use of noid lights. If the injectors don't have pulse the engine won't start. ---------- This troubleshooting tips will help you to solve the problem.Thanks.Helpmech.

Have a 1993 gmc sierra. runs fine most of the time . but will just kill sometimes out of the blue. does not matter if it is warmed up or cold. when it dies will just turn over but not start. replaced spark...


When this truck dies,does it have spark,or fuel pressure?Check it for no spark,if it has no spark,replace the ignition module.These gm year models are bad to go out ,and the distributor pick up coil also.Replace the module first,if this does not help,replace the pick up coil.NOW ON A FUEL RELATED PROBLEMit could be fuel pump,fuel pump relay,or the pick up coil.The pick up coil pulses the injectors,and the spark.I hope this helps,if not let me know.

I have hyundai accent 2003. While driving the engine died. Checked fuses,ignition,fuel pump(don't know if the pressure is right),starter is starting ok.


#1. Scan for trouble codes. If any, record them and let us know which ones they are.
#2. Connect a fuel gauge to the fuel delivery line at the engine... try to start the engine while monitoring fuel pressure... if there is fuel pressure (approx 35 to 50 lbs), the problem is elsewhere.
If no fuel pressure, check fuel pump relay, fuse, wiring to fuel pump connector (power & ground - use 12volt test light). If power & ground are present, problem is the pump (fuel filter is attached to the fuel pump inside the tank).
#3. Check injectors for injector pulse, check ignition coils for spark to spark plugs.

1995 Ram 1500. Just died? No votage to coil, no spark?


The power supplied to the fuel pump, ignition coil, fuel injectors and parts of the power module is controlled by the logic module through the Automatic Shutdown Relay (ASD):
The ASD relay is closed (allowing power to flow through it) when the ignition is first turned on. If the signal from the ignition reference is lost while the engine is running, the logic module cuts power to the ASD, which in turn removes power from the fuel pump,ignition coil, injectors and those parts of the power module.  This causes the engine to shut down.

Failure of the automatic shutdown relay is often shown as inexplicable stalling or refusal to start. The ASD can be triggered by a broken wire or short in another place, e.g. the fuel pump.  Hope this helps, and did you try to retrieve any DTC codes?? Be glad to help friend.
