or cranks robustly (the crankshaft spins fast) but wont start.
all cars that dont start one, all ran when new. etc.
what counts is the now. only.
you need to do the tests. all covered in the FSM or at alldata.com
i cant help you because you . cuz did not say crank or start? so......
1: test all fuses. (not just gandering, use a meter)
2: check battery voltage 12.6vdc rested.
3: if not cranking, wiggle the shilter (a/t) or clutch if m/T
if a/t? try cranking in Neutral. cranks now? bingo.
4: cranks ok, and fast so check spark/
ill end there, due to vast number of tests and no clear stated
ever give it a full tuneup (60,000 mile service schedule?) or this DECADE. if not why ask the spark plug question.
can you hear the fuel pump kick on when you turn the key on but without crancking the engine? Generally the fuel pump will prime for about two to three seconds when you first turn the key on. if you don't hear it that's probably the culprit. If you do hear it it may be a bad pump. also should check to see if you have spark. You can do this by removing a plug wire and using another spark plug. Ground the plug to somthing metal and have someone crank the engine (making sure you are not touching the plug or metal) You should see a spark while cranking. Good luck
Three steps to remember a car need air fuel and spark to run ... check your ignition coil and distributor for spark ..... if everything ok check the fuel pump and make sure it works ..... a slight hit to the tank or pump itself could help it start ....dont beat it though.... Hope this helped
Yes, figure out if your not getting fuel pressure of spark. You may have a Igniton mode out if no spark. you may have a fuel pump out or the fuse or relay died.. Or you may have a ECM fuse that blew. You could have a wire somewhere for any of these systems broken.
I have a 2000 dodge neon and it wont start the fuel injector are not spraying all 4 spark plugs are dry but the fuel pump is working when I start the car and push the fuel rail button to see if I am getting fuel it sprays but the injector are not I put a new relay in and fuse and nothing help me..................
Fuel delivery must be confirmed with a fuel pressure gauge on this vehicle. Disconnecting the fuel line and cranking the engine to see fuel shooting out does not confirm pressure, it only confirms fuel delivery. Remember you need both fuel delivery and pressure. On this vehicle if the psi is off by just one number that's enough to keep it from starting. Also replacing the coil and rotor (as you stated) does not confirm that spark is reaching the plugs. Confirm that both spark and adequate fuel pressure are reaching ALL the spark plugs.
