Bent valves no doubt take the head off and have a look

    this is old but I'm going to suggest that this is most likely an out-of-time problem. Valves don't usually hve a problem on an 87. First make sure you did the belt timiing marks correctly; next time the distributor to the proper cylinder. (ask for help)

My Volvo died driving down the road. . then would not start. After replacing the starter. Still won't start.


Why did you replace the starter? Possible timing belt broken/possible no spark supply/possible no fuel supply. A starter will not cause the vehicle to stall while driving

run the fault codes

if it is a gm product check for an ignition switch fault and recall

My 1998 honda civic died when i was driving it. It cranks but dosn't start it also makes a noice at the beginning could it be the fuel pump?


How many miles are on it? Did you have the timing belt changed at 90,000 miles? Is there spark to the spark plugs? Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail? A broken timing belt will make the car sound alot different than normal when cranking.

My Samurai wont start . It is getting gas to the carb and spark to the plugs. Was driving down the road and just died. Getting power everywhere. Starter turns but the motor just wont fire up.


I had a similar issue with my '86....driving home, made a left turn, and engine shut down. Coasted to a stop, and had a look under the hood. Cranked over fine, had gas, spark, but no go! After a tow home, and more in-depth investigating, turned out that the timing belt had broken! The older engine has no interference between valves and pistons, so installing a new belt got 'er going again for about $40. You can look down though the oil fill port or loosen the upper screws on the belt cover to confirm that the valves are/are not moving when the engine cranks.

HI MY MAZDA ETUDE 1996 1.6E JUST DIED WHILE DRIVING AND NOW IT WONT START CHECKED THE FUSE AL THE RELAYS AND REMOVED THE COIL AND JUST PUT IT BACK BECAUSE I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO TEST IT I SAW THAT THE...


Check for a broken timing belt....this would explain no spark because the rotor button turn by the camshaft and the crankshaft turns the camshaft via the timing belt.hope this helps,

Engine died & wont start no spark ignition coil tested good


try your ignition module in the distributor much more likely. just install rebuilt distributor if that is the problem , if you just replace module the main distributor assem will **** out shortly after.
Make sure you check for broken timing belt also it is one of those two!

2.2 no spark, but getting fuel.


You need to remove the upper timing belt cover and make sure that your timing belt didn't jump. All it takes is the belt to jump one tooth on the sprocket to create this problem. One tooth equals 17 degrees of timing. Make sure that you can hear the fuel pump come on as well when the key is in the "on" position.

95 civic no spark


Does it sound different when you crank it over? if so remove the oil filler cap and look inside while someone turns it over, if NOTHING MOVES, it has a broken timing belt, therefore no spark.
