Check your spark plugs to make sure they are dry. If they're wet they'll extinguish the spark before it can make contact with the fuel, thus preventing starting. If your plugs are really wet, leave them out of the cylinder heads and use compressed air to dry the combustion chamber and plugs. If compressed air is not available, leave them open to air dry. Once everything is dry, reconnect your spark plugs and try to start again.

My 2005 dodge stratus set for about a month and a half without periodically starting it. I'm ready to start driving it again and it wont start. It has gas.it wants to start and will turn over but wont


Are you mechanically inclined?
Here are a couple things to try:
1. Turn the key to ON (don't crank the engine
then OFF and back ON - several times.
this will pulse the fuel pump several times to charge the fuel rail.
then try to start.
2. If it doesn't catch/start right away - hold the throttle to the floor while cranking. This will put the Computer in "Start Flooded Engine" mode and turn OFF the fuel injectors.
If those things don't work - some serious diagnostics will be in order - let me know how this works :)

My car won't start. everything comes on lights, radio, but it won't turn over. it goes tink tink tink under the hood when trying to start it.


check windowshied wiper motors after you turn on head lights and everything else...if window wipers dont work then its the battery going dead. try trickle charging the battery! make sure battery is not more than three years old, if it is, don't waste your time, its due for replacement anyway. if everything works then it could be wiring from the ignition key system or its been security locked out...that means the car thinks its been stolen and shuts the fuel system off. you can try to dissconnect the battery for about 15 minites then hook it back up to see if will start again.

2005 mazda rx-8 automatic will not start


Does it actually crank? If so and doesnt start then its probably flooded. Been a problem with those cars since they came out but not to feel bad theres quite a few cars that flood easy do to certain sensors. If not turning over but just clicks then battery issue just keep in mind every time try to start and it doesnt that more fuel enters the system and doesnt burn off which means more flooding (to much fuel)

1991 Geo Tracker only starts with starting fluid.


91 is 8valve TBI injection.
it is flooding.
the starting fluid is more combustible and starts a flooded motor.
kinda like adding dynamite to bbq lighter fluid.
hahah
ok,
try a tune up.
then try holding gas pedal to floor, this is super secret unflood mode and cuts fuel injection.

the issues why its flooding, not starting is normal for that condition.
so its:
1: bad need of tune up
and or
2: leaking injector.

the former you can figure out.
cap/wires/plugs /rotor, filters, there i said it.

or
this car has a viewable fuel injector
one an do 2 things with it.
key on five times , or 5 seconds on, not cranking
and other person looks down throttle body neck
yes, off comes the tube on top.
and makes sure the injectors dont dribble full time, key on.

or
the ECT is bad.

or dash pot is not opening at key on crank.

or
cold start, IAC is clogged.

complex it is,
it will take hard work to check everything.

Will not start on hot day's in the sun.[engine cranks normal]


The normal reason why a hot engine doesn't start is the choke. Your fancy new range rover will have a computer controlled choke that will be activiated by a temperature sensor. maybe this has failed or is disconnected
In my ancient range rover I have a manual choke but essentially the same engine. I know that if the motor is hot I can't start it with the choke on.
The way the choke works is it restricts the airflow into the engine so that there is a richer fuel / air mixture which is needed for a cold start. If the engine is hot and the choke comes on the engiine floods with petrol and there isn't enough oxygen for it too ignite in the cylinders. To start a flooded engine you have to open the choke and crank the motor without pressing the accelerator. This pumps out the petrol vapour and eventually it will fire and start. If the computer thinks it is cold because of a disconnected or faulty sensor it will put on the choke whenever you try and start and the engine will flood.
I think a vapour lock is unlikely unless you driving in extremely hot weather (above 40 degrees celsius).
