Car started, then died right away, discovered there is no spark coming from either spark pack, spark plugs & IGN fuses are good, any suggestions for troubleshooting further, like ignition modules or fusible links. Thanks, Dave

    I am not sure why the immoblieser activated, but on my saturn I have the keyless entry, so I closed all doors, locked the doors from the remote, waited 30 seconds, and it started right up.

Car starts right up but 2 seconds dies, u can start it right up again & it dies again, won't run. has good spark & fuel pressure good when dies


You are on the right track by finding the injector pulse missing.
The computer grounds the injectors based on signals from the cam and crank sensors. You may have to use a scanner to check for trouble codes in the computer and watch the sensors work.
The problem could also be a relay or the key switch.

If the spark is getting right.Get the fuel system checked.Its quite possible that fuel pressure is low or fuel pump not starting up right.

92 Lincoln Towncar - running fine down interstate - just died. Not overheated. Fluid levels all good. Let set for about 15 minutes. Started right up. Drove about 5 miles, died again. Dont know where to...


There are some possibilities which you will have to check in this case:--
1) First of all check the power and voltage to the battery. With meter it will show exact 12 volt if the battery is charged. If the voltage is less get the battery charged at local auto repair shop. If the battery is internally drained and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.
2) When you crank the car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? If no then its time to check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.
3) The other thing to check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car. If the battery is charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the car. But if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not start.
4) The other thing to check in this case is fuel in the car. If there is fuel in the car then check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.
5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it’s a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

so spark either points to the PCM or the crank sensor. Providing you have checked fuses and if you havea ECM or IGN fuse and they check out good.

1991 Dodge Grand Caravan dies while driving won't restart


If it sputters or hesitates while driving I would suggest a new fuel filter. If it runs smoothly and just dies out you may have a fuel pump which needs to be replaced because it is going bad. If fuel pump relays or other types of relevant fuses are blown it would not start at all. Your mechanic could also pull a spark plug and check for a blueish white high voltage spark if it has an orange or reddish tint that would denote a lower voltage spark normally from a worn out coil pack, spark plug, plug wire etc. Through advanced engine diagnostics you can have your vehicle connected to an oscilloscope or a cylinder dwell meter which can cancel out spark to each cylinder to check for function. However your best bet may be the fuel pump, if your vehicle dies again check to see if your vehicle is getting any fuel first then you'll know for sure.

1994 Jag XJ^ No Start


If the car started and then stopped and if you have ruled out the fuel system(make sure you do have fuel pressure and your not chasing your tail) then it could be one of 2 items.
First i would replace the cap and rotor, I have had cars that ran fine then died and after replacing the cap and rotor have been perfect.
the other common issue with this model is water in the gas. The fuel filler drain gets clogged which allows water in teh gas tank, when the car sits it seems the mixture will allow the car to run then boom, it will die and not restart.

My mazda 626 2001 starts but shuts right off


this could be caused by a variety of problems,one that comes to mind is fuel pump electronics,its pumping to start when ign key is in start position but not in the running position.Also it could be the immobiliser,then again a fuel flow meter or the coil pack.To mess around with it on the off chance of hitting it first time is doubtfull,this is a case of hands on to "feel" the problem so i would suggest you call a mobile mechanic to diagnose it for you at least .
