Check and make sure the wires at the starter are all in good shape. The main power wire that powers the ignition system connects at the solenoid. It may be green/corroded and not sending power to the ignition switch. Also check the crankshaft sensor, there is a distributor control module that controls the spark on that model. It is usually mounted near the coil and the wires from the distributor run in to it. Here is a site that will help you, even if you are not familiar with how to test these units. This is for a Pontiac sunfire but the procedure is basically the same, I believe they may have you specific model at this site as well. syautodiagnostics.com/cavalier_sunfire_ignition/cavalier_sunfire_test_1.php

Check your oil pressure sensor located where the oil filter attaches,You might also want to check to see if it has a crank positioning sensor.

SOURCE: car turns over but wont start

Another quick way to isolate a spark or fuel problem is to spray starting fluid into it then crank it up. If it fires up and runs a few seconds, it's a fuel issue, if not then it's probably a spark issue. If it cranks up, the fuel issues can be many. Mine happened to be the fuel pump went out. Isolate the fuel pump issue first. When you turn the key on you should hear the fuel pump run for a couple of seconds. If you don't, it's probably the fuel pump or the wiring (relay) to the fuel pump. Even if you do hear it (as was my case), it can still be the problem as there is a rubber hose that connects the fuel pump to the fuel line that can deteriorate and come off. So if you you can hear the pump run, make sure the fuel is making it to the throttlebody. If you loosen the fuel filter after the pump has ran, there will be pressure in it and it will spray fuel out (make sure there are no ignition sources if you do that). If you have a V6, there is a pressure releaf valve on the fuel rail, you can check there. If nothing comes out after or with the fuel pump running, that little hose came off and you'll have to get to the fuel pump in the fuel tank. If you go to that trouble, replace it, you're there anyway.

when you replace crank sensor the crank sensor is going have to be reprogram or relearn before car will crank.

02 durango wont start


Is it getting fuel and or spark? If the fuel pump is working and the the plugs are getting fire then perhaps a clogged fuel pump strainer is to blame.
If the fuel is reaching the engine, then test the coil. If no spark is event replace the coil.

Drove it home, evrything fine, went out 2 hours later, will not start, engine turns over but wont start, replaced the coil pack still wont start


Make sure that you have fire and fuel. You may want to spray some ether into the air intake. If it doesn't want to start and it has fire, you may want to consider the timing chain.

Wont start after being turned off for at least 30 minutes


Im not sure what you mean when you say wont start after being turn off for 30min, do you mean the starter wont turn the motor over after 30min or the engine turn over but it wont fire/run? if it start every time after its cool down. check the coil, the original coil tend to fail with heat over time. if its original coil for being 1990 I would go ahead and place it. distributor Assembly unit will also need replacing if its original and having high miles. a sign of the coil going bad when it get hot it quit working until its cool off. fuel pump can be another causing the problem. hope that help some

03 ford taurus wont fire ,spins over,no fire


What you do is take either and old sparkplug from the car or pull one from the car and connect one of the sparkplug wires to it. Then with an insulated set of pliers hold the sparkplug so the electrode is grounded. Then have someone crank the car over. This is best done at night so you can see if there is a spark. During the day however you should be able to here a spark. If not probably a bad coil.

It seems you have a timing problem. Have the engine timed properly. If that does not work it could be a craked rotor or distributor cap. have all these checked.
