If this is a Diesel, the glowplug timer is bad or the glowplugs are bad. For either Diesel or a Gasoline unit the fuel should be available at startup.

Slightly different problems for fuel delivery for each system but pressure can be read with proper tools to let someone diagnose this and eliminate or confirm whether the engine is fuel starved. Then repaired to solve lack of fuel pressure.

Bad sensor, or fuel pump or fuel filter, on and on. I recommend you take it buy your favorite auto parts store, ask them to read ECU error codes. Any chance this is a diesel? If so your Glow plug system is not working right.

SOURCE: i have a 2001 pt cruiser replaced the head ,timing

I just copied this from another site. Better check to see if there is power going to the coils first.
The coil pack consists of 2 coils molded together. High tension leads route to each cylinder from the coil. The coil fires two spark plugs every power stroke. One plug is the cylinder under compression, the other cylinder fires on the exhaust stroke. Coil number one fires cylinders 1 and 4. Coil number two fires cylinders 2 and 3. The PCM determines which of the coils to charge and fire at the correct time. The Auto Shutdown (ASD) relay provides battery voltage to the ignition coil. The PCM provides a ground contact (circuit) for energizing the coil. When the PCM breaks the contact, the energy in the coil primary transfers to the secondary causing the spark. The PCM will de-energize the ASD relay if it does not receive the crankshaft position sensor and camshaft position sensor inputs. The OEM ignition coil lists for about $105. Warning - The direct ignition system generates approximately 40,000 volts. Personal injury could result from contact with this system.

SOURCE: chevy truck 350 vortex, won't start-cranks

ive had the same problem. turn the key and listen for the fuel pump. if you can hear it. good. next take the ignition control moduel off the truck. it's located above the coil pack on the passenger side and is not much bigger than your thumb. they cost about $85 or so at autozone. you may even be able to get yours tested. when i tryed to get mine tested we had to go by the paint mark because they were missing the harness. look for a paint mark on the back from the factory. it is either yellow or white. when they burn up the paint color changes from one to the other. the replacements don't have that.

SOURCE: F150 cranks but wont start

Hi, You did not mention what size engine is in this vehicle or mileage, but your starting issue sounds like it is related to the ignition control module. I am assuming the fuel pressure is ok at this point. The control modules are known to act up over time and can cause a driveability problem that your experiencing. The module will look like this;

Cranks, no start on 97 GMC van with 350 Vortec. Fired up with starter fluid


if it starts with starter fluid then its a fuel problem. check the fuel pressure and volume with a gage. these require at least 56lbs pressure to open the injectors and if the pressure is at 52lbs the they will not open. these use the pressure to open the poppet injectors and have a problem with the spider lines cracking and leaking fuel inside the intake. this is probably why it won`t start on its own.

2001 Ford f150 ran fine, 30 minutes later it cranked rapidly but never started again?


Get a can of Starting fluid from the parts store and spray it into the air intake hose to the engine, if it fires up and stalls right away you have a fuel pressure issue, more than likely a defective electric fuel pump inside the gas tank.

Back firing out of the intake is because the valves/cams are not set right. When you did the timing belt . did you set the crankshaft mark at top dead center of the compression stroke. If it's at the exhaust stroke this would cause backfiring and violent shaking.

check the connector on the crankshaft sensor, you have classic symptoms of either a failing crank sensor or, more likely, a dirty/bad connector or harness.

Ford F-350 Power stroke 6.0 L difficult to start


on both a 7.3l and 6.0l oil pressure is everything. Both engines use two oil pumps one for lubrication and one to fire the injectors. if your high pressure oil pump (inj pump) is weak it will take a long time for the truck to start. In order for the ficm to fire the injectors it wants to see at least 250 - 400 psi of ICP pressure. you will need a scanner to determine your high oil pressure at crank. Let me know how you make out.
