    Not sure about injectors clicking, but yes, can hear fuel pump when key is on. Checked for spark by taking out a plug and held it against the block while engine was cranked over.

    Unsure if timing belt is broken. How do I tell?

    Can you rhear the fuel injectors clicking when you listen with a hose against them?

    Can you hear the fuel pump running in the fuel tank for 5 seconds when you turn the key on?

    How are you checking spark?

2001 ws6 6speed Trans am no start. Will crank over but will not fire. Can hear fuel pump turn on with key. Also smells like raw fuel. Fuel is new 91 octane.


Its flooded at this point. let it sit & plugs dry. Diagnose no spark problem, Don't keep turning it w/o spark. The oil is getting all the unburned fuel. Change that oil after u diagnose spark problem. could be coil, ignition relay, ect.

I have a 98 Dodge ram 1500 pickup cranks over but wont start. Was running fine last night. Started this morning for 3 min then died and wont start


Does it have spark at the spark plug's ? Does it have fuel pressure ? Is the anti-theft light on ? Have you check ASD relay in the under hood fuse/relay box ? There are videos on youtube diagnosing engine cranks no start condition .

My 2000 ford contour wont start. Engine cranks, but seems no spark. I checked plugs and coil. Fuel pump kicks on and shuts off after primed. It just got harder and harder to start, finally it wont start.


Have you changed the fuel filter.

Your pump may be priming but the pressure could be against a clogged filter.

You might want to check the fuel pressur at the rail.
It might be a fuel pressure regulator problem

1995 Ford contour SE V6. In the shop replacing engine,


The most common failed start is ignition spark, usually forgot to hook it up, this is controlled by the ignition module and the crank sensor, second most common is fuel. Has your mechanic fixed it yet? if not check the three basics- air-fuel-fire, one them is missing.

96 ford contour Engine cranks wont start


It could be the fuse or the fuel pump itself. First thing to do is to determine if it is a spark or fuel issue.

97 ford contour V-6 cranks won't run


Open the air cleaner and look down into the intake while someone else is turning over the car. Is their gas or gasoline vapor being put into the engine or not?   If yes then I take a philips screw driver on the end of a spark plug wire while some one else is turning it over, to see if it has any spark.  I woudl gues 90% or all non start but cranking problems are going to be in one of these two areas.
