Why does the car turn over but doesn't start?


There are numerous reasons for a no start situation. The most common are lack of fuel and lack of spark to the spark plugs. You need to have someone diagnose what is missing and have it repaired. Could be a fuel pump/filter/wiring/crank sensor/ignition coil/ missing power supply/ etc

Ford laser 99 no power


Hi there.
well when you throttle up to about 2000rpm do you get blue smoke coming out the exhaust.When driving on flat road will it power up as normal with out missing or getting hot.
what colour was the old spark plugs were they black or light brown.
When you start engine and run for 3 minutes then let it idle and remove oil filler cap do you get smoke coming out.
Number 1 if yes then engine is lacking power due to piston rings worn answer rebuild engine.
Number2 spark plugs brown [good] if black soot as num1.
Number 3 if you get black smoke or blue ,then the engine is lacking compression could be your problem as num1

Losuing over drive lack of power hard starting must hold pedal to the floor


Does it start better after sitting overnight? Is it missing at all? Check engine light? Hard starting could be fuel pump, also lack of power could be lack of fuel. If it starts better after sitting overnight, could be block catalytic converter. That would also explain lack of power. If you have to hold gas pedal half way down trying to get speed would explain why it is not going into overdrive. Hope this gives you some direction.

Lack of power, exhaust smoke and engine miss firing, EGR Valve has been removed and cleaned, new EGR Valve was fitted, made no difference, old EGR Valve refitted, car runs with no exhaust smoke and no miss...


Just an idea but the Ford Mondeo ( european car ) from which I believe your engine
is taken has a habit of splitting a low pressure tube at the back
of the engine this is a relatively
cheap, easy fix. The other symptom this used to throw up was a
little more black smoke from the exhaust and a pacing/ surging from
the engine.

2005 Pontiac Sunfire is missing and lack the power (it wants to gain power but powers down (jumps)


I suspect you needto relace your coil pack. You are probably not running on all 4. the engine will run but only on 2 cylinders.
If missing replace coil pack. they go regularily on the 03/05 F style engines. You should be able to locate a good used one at a wreckers.
