Wow it could be a couple of things, First do you have MAP, throttle position, sensors? After it back fires do you smell anything, gas, rotten eggs? Is your check engine light comes on when the car dose start? and how was the car running just before this? or was it one day you jumped in her it no start? Right now I don't think its your fuel pump, need to get more info. I can give you how to check the fuel pump later.

SOURCE: Hi Car wont start .Spark

Sounds like it could be. (without checking to see if you have a "pulse" at the injectors) You can usully hear a difference in the way it turns over with a cam belt issue.

I just put an engine in a 1972 VW bug just won't start firing order is fine top dead center is fine just turns but doesn't want to turn over


Hi Timothy:
Old Dude wisdom..........
- Fire at the plugs and
- Fuel in the jugs

If everything else is OK it should run. Not necessarily well, but it should run.

What to do?
1) Check for hot blue spark at the plug electrodes
2) Check for fuel in the carb.

If you have spark, give it a shot of gas into the carb, and give it a try. If it doesn't start, backfires, or catches fire, you'll need to double check the timing and plug lead firing order.

Not kidding! Don't set fire to it!.

Have a 1991 Buick Lasabre won't start and backfires very very loud


backfire is a timing issue ,if its to far advanced it will back fire out intake ,if it backfires out exhaust its to far retarted ,you may have a bad timing gear,and or chain or belt, start by checking timing if you can get it running infact go over ignition system to look for other problems

I have an 04 400ex that wont start turns over great blue spark timing is correct when tryin to start ot backfires but wont start what do i do


Backfiring is often an indication of valve timing issues or valve problems, or incorrect firing order of plug wires. recheck that, and check cylinder compression. Did you just replace a timing belt? recheck your timing.

Chevy venture stalled


Compression, spark , timing , fuel for any engine to run. Don't forget a stopped up catalytic convertor will have the same effect as you described. Backfiring of course is fouled plugs, bad plug wires, look for arcing from wires when it is dark outside. If it has a distributor check for cracked cap, had my 91 GMC start backfiring then die due to ignition module inside distributor going bad. It would start back up after it cooled for about 10 minutes.

Engine turns over but wont start? it has spark! and fuel!


Pull out # 1 spark plug and put back into plug wire, rest on motor block so that end of electrode is against metal. turn motor over and have a finger or compression gauge in # 1 cylinder, check to see if spark occur at same time as compression (compression will blow air past finger or raise gauge). When you say it has fuel do you mean gas tank has fuel? Are you sure fuel is getting to the cylinders? are plugs wet with fuel? Does it turn over but kinda thumps or backfire (Caugh)? Check the spark and compression first. if they don't happen at same time, the timing skipped or belt broke. if all is good pull plugs and inspect, could be flooded (WET) from fuel. either replace or spray with starting fluid and compressed air to dry them. spray starting fluid into air intake if starts then stalls, try again, if same thing happens then you have a fuel problem. try these suggestions first 1/2 hr time table, hopefully sucess, if not it sure indicates fuel.

I currently own a 1986 Ford Ranger 2.9 V6, RW Drive. Was driving like a charm!! I was driving it yesterday morning, no problems, I parked it after 10 minutes of driving... Last night I went to start it, it...


The cranking will usually sound different after the timing chain has slipped. Does it spit or backfire when you crank it? I suggest you rule out some easier things before going after the timing chain. If you are getting spark and fuel, then maybe I would take a peek at the timing chain to see if it has skipped on the sprocket.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Turns over but wont start


first check fuel, then check to see if it is fireing at the spark plug. if it is fireing at plug, check to make sure it is getting fuel. ( should be able to smell fuel on the electrode end of spark pug). If it is getting fuel, and spark, you may try removeing all spark plugs, then shoot some oil into each spark plug hole. Replace plugs, and try to start. If it still wont try to start, may be out of time. Does it pop, backfire when you are cranking the engine?

WONT START AND TRIES TO TURN OVER BUT BACK FIRES


AWESOME a real camaro problem.
backfire.
strong odor of gas because the gas isn't getting burned
caused from backfire. backfiring because the spark isnt sparking when its supposed to.
problems could be bad spark plug wires , bad plugs , bad ignition parts.
your gonna need to check wires for bad spots, check ignition coils and stuff like that. if all that stuff is ok, then your problems have to do with inside the engine. jumped time etc.

Car wont start


if it backfired then there must be spark , (usually) i would suggest checking if there is fuel pressure (listen to hear the fuel pump when you turn the key to the on position) if you dont hear anything then you may have a fuel pump issue..
