Remove a wire from one spark plug put an old plug in the boot, ground the plug, check for spark. It could be the coil, fuel filter or the fuel pump relay is defective. If you have more or near 140k miles and it has the original fuel pump. When they start to go bad they will slowly fail. They will either work or not work at this point. Have someone try to start the vehicle while you bang the fuel tank, If it starts replace fuel pump.

Depending on your vehicle, if it has a distributor. You may have to change it out completely. It happened to me. Changed everything and that was the last item. Worked after that.

Our 1994 Dodge Dakota won't start. Cranks over. Fuel injected.


Quick find is to determine whether the engine runs with an external fuel supply.

Starting fluid is the easiest to use. Spray a small shot (one second spray) into the breather while cranking. If the engine fires up then dies, you know the spark and timing is not the problem and the fuel delivery system is. If any backfiring occurs, there is a timing problem.

Start with this and post with the results.

Sputtered out and now it won't stay running; dies when put in gear.


Mass air flow , crank sensor . I wouldn't discount anything . Having a scan tool that can view engine sensor data would be a great help too , testing fuel pressure and flow and back pressure test the exhaust .

Will not start it cranks but thats it. got it to start once and it just sputtered untill it stalled i did the key on-off-on-off-on and got the code "donE"


check the fuel pressure, or you can shot alittle starting fluid in the air breather and if it starts your fuel pump is bad, but check fuses first

Starting Problem


do not i will say it again do not spray starter fluid in to the breather as you will destroy your mass air flow sensor. check or change your crank sensor and your cam sensor.. i have had the same problem and it took me like 3 months to find that out.. i have a 2000 hyundai accent and it it would start from a cold start with no problem but once it warmed up it would stall... besides the crank shaft sensor is one of the cheapest parts you can change ............

My 2001 new Beetle will not stay running. It starts up, then 5-8 seconds later will sputter out and die. If I pump the gas peddle a bit after it starts, it trys to stay running longer but then sputters out...


Hi There,
Try this: You will need 2 people - Have someone Spray Starting Fluid in the throttle then start the car and have someone spray the fluid continuously into the throttle. If the car continues to run you have a fuel problem, but if it stalls out, replace the coil pak. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
