If it is turning over and you have no spark then I would look to the coil pack as that is what sends the spark.

Hi there, i have placed new coils and spark plugs also got new air-flow meter sensor new battery and car does not crank over please help


Hi does the motor turn with key but doesn't start?, If so take a spark plug out and replace it back into the spark plug lead and earth it onto a steel part of the body(make sure it's touching something steel). Have somebody turn the key to see if your getting spark. If you have spark then you have a fuel blockage but if you don't have spark but have new coils and battery then it could be a loose wire in the coil harness meaning electrical......
You say car does not crank over, If you mean you turn the key and motor doesn't turn then it's electrical, so no spark OR motor doesn't turn you're better off getting an auto electrician but if you have spark it's fuel problem and you need a mechanic... Sorry and good luck......

    Truck wont start engine turns but wont fire


    If the trucks turns over and does not seem like the battery is dead I would assume it is spark or fuel. Check spark plugs to make sure they spark. Pull one plug at a time hold it against side of engine and have someone turn the truck over for you. You should see bright spark from all spark plugs. If you do see spark then check your Fuel Pump to make sure it is getting power and is opperating correctly also check your fuel filter to make sure it is not plugged. Good luck, Hope this helps.

    Need to replace sparkplugs on 2002 ford escape


    well replace spark plugs is not a hard job,when replacing spark plugs, good time to replace plug wires also.you need to replace one spark plug at a time so you wont mix up firing order. you need a spark socket, torque wrench, 3/8 ratchet wrench, 3/8 short and long extensions,you need a spark plug gap gauge.spark plug gap for 2.0 engine 0.051 the 3.0 engine spark plug gap is 0.052 - 0.056. just follow spark plug wires they will lead you to the spark plugs.warning wait until engine cool down first because removing spark plugs from hot engine could damaged the aluminum heads,use compressed to blow away debris before removing spark plugs keep debris falling into the cylinders.wear safety glasses if you use compress air and use small amount anti seize compound to the spark plug threads.good idea slip a short length rubber hose over the end of spark plug to use as a tool thread it into place.reason i use piece vacuum hose it will grip the spark plug enough to turn it, but will start to slip if the plug begin to cross thread.when installing spark plug, it should turn at least few times if spark plug start tighten before 1/4 turn thread cross threading need to back off start over dont keep turning you will stripped spark plugs threads in the head also damage spark plug threads, so be careful, good luck with job.

    I want to change my own spark plug's


    Instructions
      • Locate the spark plug cables along the top or the sides of the engine, depending on CR-V model. Once the engine cools, use the trim panel tool to twist the spark plug wire at the wire's boot, which is the larger rubber portion located on top of the spark plug.
      • 2Pull back on the spark plug wire to remove it from the spark plug.

      • Place the socket on top of the spark plug and turn it counter-clockwise to unscrew and remove the spark plug from the well.
      • 4Rub anti-seize lubricant onto the new spark plug threads and on the tip of the spark plug.
      • 5Insert the new spark plug into the well. Manually turn the plug clockwise to thread the spark plug into place.
      • 6Test the tension on the plug with the tension testing tool. Adjust the tension as needed. Honda CR-V spark plugs generally need a tension between 10 and 15 foot pounds. The spark plug's packaging indicates its suggested tension.
      • 7Replace the spark plug wire, turn it from side to side and lock it into place. Continue the process with the rest of the spark plugs one at a time until all of the spark plugs are replaced.

    Plug turned a 1/4 turn and locked down didnt want to force it


    no dont force spark plug its trying to cross thread.back spark plug back out.apply thin coat of anti seize compound to spark plug threads.if you have problems getting spark plugs back in a hard to reach place, use a long piece 3/8 vacuum hose about what ever length you need.place vacuum hose over spark plug insulator then install spark plugs to hard reach places to keep from cross threading.if plug tighten 1/4 turn.back out spark plug and try again.dont cross thread or you have to remove cylinder head.if spark plug hole hard to reach to retap or install thread inserts.

    1948 ford pic-up no spark engine flat head


    Timing controls when spark happens ...it does not make spark. make sure coil and all other ignition trigger devices are good (crank sensor, cam sensor, wiring and pcm) You can get info for tests from inexpensive manuals such as chiltons or haynes and using a digital volt/ohmeter.

    Car wont start. I have gas, pump works, i just dont have spark, coil works, rotor turn .


    check spark plugs or spark pug wires. These are the most common issues with no spark. 2. check all fuses. 3. check ground or battery cables. If ground is bad it can cause a no spark. Motor turns? or ROTORs TURN? If motor turns your getting spark.

    Moms van


    Hello, I'll need some more info, when u turn the key to start the van, the engine turns over (this is the same thing as cranks over, or cranks) but it won't start. Do I understand it correctly? If this is the case, u must check to see if u have spark at the spark plugs, if u do u must then check to see if gas is reaching the plugs. Those are the 2 main requirements of an engine running, spark and gas. The easiest way to check for spark, is to purchase one spark plug for your van, remove one spark plug wire by pushing in, while twisting, then pull out while twisting the wire ( hold the wire as close to the spark plug as possible so u won't damage the wire). Connect the new plug to the spark plug wire, place it on a metal surface, turn the key to crank the engine over (do NOT hold the plug while turning key on!!) , watch the tip of the plug for spark. Do this out of the sun, and it will be very obvious if u have spark at the plug or not. Let me know what u find.
