Would like the model, year and size of motor please.

It maybe flooded, a simple check is remove a few spark plugs and spray a shot of wd40 in each and replace plugs and wires and give it a try.
If you verified correctly that is has fuel and spark but won't start the problem could be timing belt, bad compression(wd40 would fix that temporary) burnt valves to name a few.

More info would help, such as compression reading dry and wet tests.

Your help would be appreciated

    It's a Ford C600 with a 370. I drove it home parked it and went to re start it a few days later and it would not start. I have had the carb cleaned and rebuilt, changed the coil, plugs, fuel pump, battery, it's getting good spark. the timming is good. And the carb is pumping fine. It will almost start but not take off and run. Thank you for the info.

Have 98 ford contour ran fine till one day drove it to a friends house now wont start have gas spark no codes being thrown out on tester just cranks and cranks no start


The basics, make sure battery has a full charge. Have helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check fuel injector pulse.
You may also need to check compression. I need something to hang my hat on, to troubleshoot. Can you communicate with computer?

How to fix a1998 buick century to start fuel filter new and airfilter turning over but not starting gets gas


Did you check for spark? It sounds like you're not getting spark. Check for spark. If you are not getting spark then it sounds like you might have to replace the coil packs. Is it running a L4 engine? If its running a standard chevy L4 its probably the coil packs. Try to replace them check again for spark.

Hello you will need to replace the spark plugs you quoted it is getting lots of gas so your spark plugs are wet.disconnect your battery while your replacing your spark plugs once finished replacing the spark plugs reconnect the battery now try to start it should start up.

91 NISSAN MAXIMA , ran out of gas , and put gas in it and it still wont start ,I heard that the factory anti-theft system will shut car down i that. true ? We can get it started ,checked for spark, no...


if it ran out of gas it just may be air locked, you can't just crank the engine turn the key to the run postion for 3 seconds and shut off and do this 7 or 8 times then try starting it. The fuel pump will not pump while cranking it is a fail safe if the car is in a wreck and the pump won't continue to pump gas out and catch on fire. This should fix it for you.

99 gmc wont start


check electric fuel pump operation ( located in the fuel tank ). Occasionally a fuel pump will burn out when running out of fuel, due to the fact the pump runs DRY for about 30 seconds till the fuel stops flowing out of the injectors, the engine quits, simultainously losing oil pressure which FINALLY shuts off the fuel pump. Sometimes TOO LATE. Hope this helps
