Mx 5 Eunos 1996. Difficult to start first thing (damp?)

It will sometimes catch on the first try but floods if this fails. Starts after several tries. After it has started and has warmed through it starts on the button for the rest of the day.
New plugs, plug leads, solenoids.

If the problem occurrs at cold , then check air intake, air filter and air intake sensor.
Also check the vacuum system for leaks using an hand tool (Vacuum/Fuel Pump Tester Kit: Automotive) , and scan the computer using an OBD code reader.

Car will not start like its not catching fire , i have a 2008 suzuki xl7


old post. but will answer.
the starter only cranks the engine, that is it's only job.
if it cranks robustly (at crank shaft pulley ,see it) then its ok.
250 RPM is typical cranking speed. RPM
no starts are complex.
for any engine Gas, to start you needs 4 things.
  1. ALL FUSE TO EFI GOOD, TEST THEM. CEL glows key on?
  2. full engine compression and crank vacuum 5" HG or more.?>??
  3. Spark , try a fresh tune up with fresh spark plugs. all 6 sparking.?
  4. Fueling , must be right. not flooding , not starving
if spark and engine are good, all engines(most) will start with test fuel.
This one simple test. proves the engine is ok, and spark is ok.
and the fuel system is dead.
these checks , will let is work the 4 systems. that might fail.
this is the classic basics path.
and works 99.% of the time.

exceptions, are clogged melted cat.
or stuck wide open EGR
or ISC stuck closed, (no starting air.) use 10% throttle to prove that.
or flooding, if flooding use super secret unflood mode (opr guide)
hold the throttle (right foot) pedal to the floor, this cuts fueling
and the flooded engine starts, for full time or runs and floods and stalls again.
This is called basics , in all ASE books in print.
RTM.

The engine cuts off like its out of gas. It is intermittent and can happen when I am doing 70 on highway, the power starts to drop I can depress the gas pedal and after repeated pumping will sometimes...


Have you scanned for any fault codes? Most parts stores have them available to loan out short-term (5 to 10 minutes in their parking lot).

Without any OBD scan, it's very difficult to even point you in a direction.

It could be electrical or fuel-related. When was the last time you had the fuel filter replaced? Check the plugs/coils for fouling and proper connection. Check the battery connections to make sure nothing is loose.

Wont start 1996 jeep grand cherokee laredo inline six4.0 fuel inj


The first thing I would do since you think it was flooded is to replace the sparkplugs, sometimes if a spark plug has been washed out with gas you cannot get it completely dried out. After you replace sparkplugs try to start the engine. If the engine starts I would still recommend that you change your oil because of fuel saturation. If your engine fails to start I would suspect that you have a bad crankshaft position sensor as it is known to give problems. The crankshaft position sensor is located on the top of the transmission bell housing on the drivers side.

Mx 5 Eunos 1996 starting problems


After replacing the solenoid check the tips of the cables ending at the plugs. Hold it near the body and ask someone to turn the ignition key. You should see sparks from the cable tip to the body of the engine. If no sparks rhen you got to check the distributor and get the rotary contact point cleaned or replaced................sodeep
