Engine cranks but doesn't start


Hi Donald, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Donald, sense you have a burning smell and a starting and running issue, I would start by checking all the wiring and connectors to see if they are burnt OR may have fell onto the exhaust somewhere and melted the wiring. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website here: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

Faint odor of gas when i start my 93 boneville


It could be flooded with fuel. You could try pulling the fuel pump relay and cranking the engine to clear it out. A mechanic would check for spark at the plugs and also see if the plugs are fuel fouled.
Usually if the oil pressure light comes on the engine will eventually die because the fuel pump stops getting voltage.

Cranking over but wont start


If you smell fuel in the exhaust, then you can assume the fuel pump is working. Spark at the coil is fine but do you have spark to the plugs? It sounds like you have an older car with a cap and rotor. You might have a bad cap or rotor. It might just be flooded, in which case pulling and cleaning the spark plugs would help.

Ran out of gas,put 2 gals in tank got it started drove 25 miles, now it wont start. engine cranks but wont start and cant smell even the faintes hint of gas....


the debris from the bottom off the tank may have clogged the fuel filter and or the injectors. theres no fuel getting into the engine, change fuel filter, thats about $25.00. if problems persists try an injector cleaner.

Starts quickly cold. must crank 5-8 seconds when warmed up. I let fuel pump run before cranking. Get faint gas smell but no visable leak. New plugs wires cap and rotor. 165k


At that mileage, it's possible that you have one or more injectors that are beginning to leak. When that happens you need to crank the engine over longer in order to clear the raw fuel from the intake and re-pressurize the system as well. Also check the ballast resistor (white ceramic block with two wires going to it) on the drivers fender back near the firewall. I can't remember exactly what it does but do remember that it alters the way the pump operates after warm up.

1998 caviler wont start.has compresson. has fuel


You will not have a hot wire on the fuel injectors. The go for the injectors is a monentary high which means even when cranking over you will not see it with a multimeter. When cranking over after a bit you should smell gas if not you are probably not getting fuel. If you smell gas the you are probably not getting spark. This is most likely the senerio since you couldn't start it with starting fluid. By the way don't do that very often because it can damage your engine. There are several areas to look if you have no spark. The first is the distributor, the second is your coil and the last is your computer. Good luck. Please rate the helpfulness of my answer.
