What can cause my car not to start.?


must start unless there is a problem in the start circuit where there is no ignition circuit while starting ( ignition switch problem)
another problem may be excessive fuel to the cylinders from faulty injectors/ seals
if an engine has good compression, fuel/air mixture, right ignition timing right, correct firing order and the valve timing is correct , then the laws of physics demand that it fires
have you got all of those ducks lined up because if you miss any , it will not work

Misses and back fires


sound like the ignition timing is out and needs resetting so that it fires at the right part of the 4 stroke cycle. usually about 8 degrees before top dead centre. varies for each model of engine

Firing ORDER FOR THE 2006 chevy Uplander Van 6 cyl? Replaced spark plug wires and it now has 'miss'


There are 2 6 cylinder engines for that year. Both are the same as far as wiring/firing order but gave you both anyway(see below). There have been times that I thought I did the same thing as far as the firing order and have been doing it for 25+ years. Sometime i did and sometimes I didn't. So if you find the wiring is correct and you seem to have a miss, In about 90 percent of the time that this has happened to me I had knock a vacuum hose off so you might want to start there if they are right. It sure sounded like a miss at those times but was vacuum. There are other factors but that's where I would start if this is the case. I hope this helps and good luck.

2007 Pt Cruiser I Changed spark plugs 2 weeks ago Bosch Platinum +4, car is non turbo 2.4 ltr engine. within 1 day engine light on cylinder 1 miss fire, read on the net changed plugs to Champion RE14MC...


remove the plug from the #1 cylinder, and install it into the #2 cylinder , and put plug from # 2 clyinder in to #1 plug hole, connect plug wires, and start up vehichle, and if computer shows misfire on # 2 cylinder , then you have a bad plug, possibly porcelin insulator could have a hair line crack in it, hope that this information has helped you.

My husband did a tune up on my car yesterday and now it wont start it will turn over like it wants to start but it wont he said that its miss firing we have bought 3 new coil packs and still will not start...


If your car is miss firing and your husband changed the coil packs,the wires leading from coil packs to sparkplugs must have got crossed.This will change car timing which will result in the car miss firing.He needs to go over wiring and correct problem for car to run right.You can go online to autozone.com and type in Info about car to get the correct wiring layout.Your problem isnt the new plugs n wires.Its the wiring layout.

Miss firing engine and black spark plug


Is it a two stroke machine , do you mix your own fuel.

If so over dosing on the oil component will cause your problem, check for the right mix levels and follow them.

Is the choke going full back to zero ?

Are you running the right type pf plug for that engine, some run hot some dont

Is the engine running smooth or lumpy.
====================================================================
For a four stroke engine

Your engine may either be running very rich or there is wear on the bores causing oil to get to the electrode.

You can obtain a spark plug extender which takes the plug out of the direct line of fire
