If it won't start, it is very likely either fuel or spark is lost at the engine. Is the engine getting gas to it from the gas tank? Do you hear the fuel pump turn on for 2 seconds with the key in on, not start? This 2 second period is to put pressure in the line and to the fuel injectors.
If gas is getting up to the engine, next check for spark. Buy a cheap spark tester, hook it to a spark plug wire and crank the engine over. If ignition system is good, you will see a blue, snapping spark on all of the spark plug wires. If you have spark, next check the fuel injector circuit. Post back if you need help with that.
If you have no spark, aha! your ignition system has failed. Now you really do need to check all your fuses before proceeding. Most common failure with no spark is an ignition coil, a bad ignition control module, or a bad crank position sensor. Many other possibilities, but those are the most common.
Wow! You've really got your hands full! 1) Verify the fuel pump is installed correctly and has power. 2) Verify the fuel filter is installed correctly. 3) Verify the spark plug wires are correctly installed. The number one reason for a car not running after an owner changes the spark plug wires - the wires were not installed to the correct cylinder.
check spark and fuel 1st take off the air inlet from the airfilter you can shot some gas or brake cleaner or intake cleaner into the throttle area and try to start if starts fuel problem pump, fuses ,gas filter plugged if doesnt start take plug wire off the sparkplug and ground the wire to engine is there spark or not could also be crank sensor or if you have a oil sensor check if full of oil sometimes sensor cuts starting
It's already not start before you changed or after changed ? If before. the timing belt or might be broken , burn fuel pump's fuse, injector's fuse or main engine relay. If after. It's possible miss some wire that still not connect.
If it were the immobilizer, you would have a security light that would be flashing or staying on all the time the key is in on. Since the engine cranks over and the pump is working when you turn the key to on and start, the green light may just mean the bulb is burnt out or a connection problem with that wire for the light. Not much of a problem there.
You said no fuel or fire when trying to start-so that is where to concentrate: you first need to verify that the ignition still is working, so check for spark on a plug wire with the engine cranking over. This could be a main fuse or main relay not passing power on to the ignition system and/or the injector circuit. First check for spark, and if you have spark, check the injector circuit (there is a fuse for the injectors-probably under the hood in a fuse/relay block). If you have no spark, you will have to diagnose the ignition system- coils, ignition control module (the ignitor), the crank angle or crank position sensor, finally the engine computer.
Check for cracks or white dust on the spark plug wires. If found replace the spark plug wires.
If the spark plug wires are fine, replace the cap and rotor.
If it still is not fixed check to see if the engine is throwing a code and post more info.
Do all the spark plugs not fire?
check engine light on?
Did anything happen right before that might have caused this? ex: washed the engine?
Squirt starting fluid in intake and try to start if it starts and then dies you have a fuel delivery problem. Make sure you check the fuses for a blown fuse namely fuel pump or fuelpump relay. If it doesnt start after squirting starting fluid in the intake check for spark at the plug wires and coil.
Spark is controlled by the coil, iignition module, distributor (cap and rotor) and plugs and wires.
Almost every time it will be the ignition module which is screwed to the side of the distributor and has a few wires coming out of it (about 6 wires, can't remember)
To verify the spark, by a spark tester at any auto parts store and test the spark by using the NO.1 plug wire. Be careful because if u have the 1.9 H.O. engine, it runs at roughly 35 000 volts and i kid u not. As for no gas, either tank is empty (which i'm sure u checked) or bad fuel pump or fuel pump fuse.
Also verify firstly in hte trunk there's a fuel pump cut off switch. It's a reset for in case an accident happens, it turns off the fuel pump. I believe it's on the drivers side in the trunk on the side wall.If i remember there's an acces panel there in the trunk. Start by checking this first, then fuses.
