If it was me before i spend a lot of money on parts i would go to my local library and get my hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for my truck because it could be the alternator,the drive belt or the timing off or the timing belt is broken or missing a tooth or the fuel pump or a plug fuel filter try these websites to see if you can get so information on your truck www.autozone.com and www.alldatdaiy.com i hope i have been some help to you Michigan Man.

redux 2

and no photo of your ENGINE so we both fail
hard.

or shows you clearly why you dont want to do this.

so get car fixed
use a real mechanic.
see why?

the DIS engine started in July 1997 (mfg,date)
http://www.fixkick.com/PRIZM.html

facts.
so your does have a distributor (google that please)
but 1997 is also a big change, a new engine
end to end. july 1.

no photo of your engine,means NO JOY.
we can not guess engines
or what spark system used due to huge changes
in 1997, all related to USA smog laws.
fact.

I have a suzuki xl7 tht wont start and says service traction control service stability control dont know if it is the pass key 3 or just an ecm problem


no year stated. that is challenging
2 problems.
if it dont start , traction dont matter now so, will the engine crank over fast? if yes, is the spark good? on all cylinders?
yes/no
how many miles on it?
which engine/
2.5 L (156 hp) a V6
2.7 L (185hp) V6

no starts.
Does the Check engine lamp glow key on,
Yes, good
no , fuse blown. (the PCM EFI brain must have power to run)


  1. does it crank? fast?
  2. check fuses yet. all fuses, related to EFI? and spark.
  3. Got spark at all 6? spark plugs. (tedious on C.O.P. cars)
  4. if above all ok, we try test fuel to see if you lost fueling.

F6a efi wont start


there is the list , and correct order that always works.
1: fuses. good?
2: 12vdc to all EFI parts (battery charged? at 12.6vdc? rested)
use a voltmeter, no guessing... and the VM dont lie.
3: good compression, on all cylinders. 150psi w.o.t
if all are real low the cam belt/chain slipped. (generic post)
4: good spark, the ECU cuts fuel ifs spark is gone, so spark
on gas engines, is #4. i check timing to see if cam slipped.
5: good fueling. (too much or too little, it will not start)
i check for flooding with spark plug tip checks, soaking wet is flooding.
dry is lost fuel, try test fuel check now, (spray fuel)
if flooded do the super secret unflood test in the operators guide.
SS-= cranking with wide open throttle.

i bet its running now.

skipping 60k mile tune up's will cause no starts
as will bad fuel.

2008 suzuki jimny wont start Was running ok then


sure , they all ran like new, when new. or yesterday.
but not now. that means it BUSTED.

so check for spark.
if not spark then fix that.
modern cars have EFI, and all EFI cut fuel if the cars ECU brain
even thinks for a moment there is no spark (it can see it?
so spark is 1st. (if engine is good,)
ever give the car a full 60k mile tuneup, (100km)
if not why not?

Sounds like a weak fuel pump check your fuel pressure.It should be 40-47 psi with key on engine off and with key on engine running it should be 30-44 psi if its not within specs replace fuel pump.

Suddenly refuses to start,first time since i got it,plenty of fuel,good spark from plugs,fuses all ok,turns over perfectly but wont fire


Crank it long lets say 10 seconds remove one plug if is dry, no fuel! now inspect EFI fuse OK, then SWAP EFI relay for other that look the same like horn relay, unable to do that let somebody else crank the vehicle and put you finger on the relay clicks EFI system ok.

Spark plug dry (continue) while somebody cranck the car put a long screw driver in the injectors and the other end close to your ear, did you listen the ticki noise from the injectors No? probably no crank sensor signal.

Spark plug is wet, but the spark wont ignite that fuel. bad fuel ! or bad timing.

All this easy test are done asuming you dont have profecional tool like stetoscope, scanner, etc
