Hi,

I would check n replace the fuel filter if needed. Also, it could be one of the spark plugs. Was it running before? Can you think of anything that happened or changed recently?

1991 chevy lumina will crank but wont start I checked the fuel pressure it squirts out good and the fuel pump sounds strong I checked spark on the coil its sparking good! I charged the battery its fully...


If you have spark at all the plugs, the crank sensor should be ok. You should use a gage to check fuel pressure? I don't know engine size? For the 3.1L engine, my info says 40--46 psi.
It is possible to have spark at the plugs, but, the computer doesn't see rpm signal. If that is the case, no fuel injector pulse. The purple wire with white tracer carries rpm signal from ignition module to pcm, that wire has dc pulse, engine cranking. If nothing there, have to check ignition module.
How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes?

Car has no spark or injector pulse(new ecm,crank sensor)


Check the fuse for the injectors, some vehicles have the injectors and coil running on the same circut, at the same time check the fuse for the ignition.

I have a 1994 ford f-150 5.0 engine. It will not start except with starting fluid. It has 45 psi fuel pressure, good spark to spark plugs, timing is dead on. It has no pulse to injectors while starting,...


It sounds like the (iac valve) idle air controle valve. When its running unplug it and if the truck shuts off replace the iac. it runs about $50 to $60
