1997 5.7L c2500 suburban. I have replaced ignition,coil,distributor,fuel pump,fuel filter,plugs,plugwires,crank sensor,egr,spider injection. After it sits for awhile, hard to start Need advice please

Sorry dude but did you test anything before replacing parts ? There is a step by step diagnostic path to trouble shoot a problem like these. Does it have spark, does it have fuel pressure an is there compression in the cylinders ? After all that you should take it to a ASE certified repair technician !

1997 mazda 626 won't start.

Are the plugs wet with fuel?
Check for spark. No spark? it may be the ignition module.

Plugs dry and spark present? No fuel?Spray a little starting fluid and see if it will run on that.
Then check pump fuses and for fuel pump noise.

I have a 1997 Dodge Dakota 3.9 v-6 It dies while driving and at the light and it sometimes start right away and other times it takes 15mins. Replaced the brain twice ,replaced the pick-up coil, all spark...

Have you relapced the fuel pump and filter? Take it to a garage and have the fuel pump pressure checked. It very common for fuel pumps or a clog in the line to cause this.

I have a 1991 ford fairmont ea model and we are trying to start it it will turn over but will not start we have changed the fuel pump are you able to help us anr tell us what is wrong.

You need three basic elements for an internal combustion engine to run - spark, fuel, and oxygen. First, pull the distributor cap and check the condition of the rotor button, make certain that the coil wire is in place. This should take care of the spark problem, you should not have to change all the plugs to crank it. Next, since it is turning over check for major vacuum leaks such as the vacuum line running into the brake cylinder. Next, since you changed the fuel pump disconnect the fuel line at the carb and turn the engine over until you have fuel coming through the line, it would also help to change any fuel filters between the carb and the gas tank. Reconnect the fuel line and pour a small amount of fuel directly into the carb. The carb may have set for too long and become dry, this should prime the system. Once it cranks you can fine tune and find out any other small problems such as bad plugs, bad wires, and minor vacuum leaks.

Your battery needs to be replaced or charged. Try jump starting your vehicle.

1997 saturn sc 1 code Po 341 comes up, I have replaced the spark plugs and wire set, I also replaced the fuel filter. The car won't start at all now but before I replaced the above parts the car would run...

The fuel filter won't help with this DTC, but helps otherwise.
Camshaft position sensor...can be a few reasons for this. Since you put new plug wires in, check the coil pack for cylinder #4 and also the spark plug for that cylinder even though it is new. A different problem in that cylinder can cause that spark plug to fail prematurely.
Here is a more detailed explanation....

The car is running on 5 cylinders.I changed the plugs,put in injector cleaner and even changed the lead on the number 6 plug as that appeared to be the problem plug. What next

Unplug the battery cable. Pull out connectors to the injectors, one at a time and measure the impedance on the injector with a digital multimeter. The reading should not be higher than around 10-12 ohms. If you get a really high reading or indication of open circuit then the injector is burn out. If you get really low reading like 1 ohm vice versa, then injector is shorted out. If you found the burnt injector, and replaced it with a good one the car will run a lot smoother since all cylinders are operating.

Starting a 1984 240 DL Volvo wagon after sitting in a garage for 5 years. Previously looked after really well and regularly serviced one owner.

Replace engine oil and filter, air filter and fuel filter.
Drain the fuel tank and add fresh fuel.
Remove the spark plugs and put a squirt of oil in each cylinder. Remove coil lead and crank engine until oil pressure comes up.(light goes out),
replace coil lead and start engine.. it will blow smoke for first few minutes. Check trans fluid, brake fluid etc before driving. Theres a good chance the brakes will need an overhaul.

Firing order for a 1996 EF ford falcon

EF & EL are 1,5,3,6,2,4
EF has a coil pack under the inlet manifold the EL has a distributor
EF uses a waste spark system so 2 plugs are fired at the same time eg 1 & 6 - 2 & 5 - 3 & 4
