93 talon tsi getting fuel and spark car cranks but wont start


I would try making sure spark plug wires are put on in the correct firing order. This is a common mistake in tune ups. Most intake manifolds have the firinging order cast in. Plug gaps correct? I cant come too far away.

1997 avalon wont start fuel pump when key is turned to "on" position and hencar wont start. Also, the car wont start when the fuel pump is hard wired to stay on. Any ideas


There are still many possibilities. The internal combustion engine is a complex mechanism. The timing could be off. All spark plugs must be firing. They must fire at exactly top dead center. The timing chain/belt must be in good working order, not worn or stretched. The cam shaft must not be worn out so the valves open and close correctly. the valve lifters must be working properly. the cylinder heads must have the same correct compression. A different compression indicates bad valves or head gasket. Piston rings must not be worn out or they will not provide adequate compression. the oil pump must circulate the oil to lubricate everything, and provide fluid for hydraulic lifters. Oil and filters must be clean and the correct type for engine and climate.

sounds like a bad ignition module check for spark when it dies if you do not have spark at plugs check between coil and coil wire if still no spark most likely module it is under rear of distributer cap resembles a black wafer board with two electrical plugs

Are you sure you put the spark plug wires back on the correct plug? obviously a new set of plugs wont hurt a car, and if this happened after you did the plugs and it never did it before, i would say check the order of your wires,

Wont start after it died one night


The cap should be marked for number 1. The distributor turns clockwise. The firing order is 1-3-4-2.

I have a 93 altima that will crank but will not start...about a couple months ago i went to my work and shut off my car. it was running fine when i shut it off.. when i came back out and started my car...


this year model is notorious for fuel related probs...check the remainder of the fuel system, injectors, and the fuel pressure regulator also verify that the fuel pump is actually running and getting the correct amount of power to the pump itself..... it may not be bad just not getting enough power

Car Starts but dies


Give the car a "Tune-up". Replace the spark-plugs, the spark-plug wires, and make sure the "Timing" is correct...OK
