What is year--make--model? If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it, while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure. How long since a tune-up?

If vehicle is computer controlled, check for applicable trouble codes.

Why does my ECM-I fuse keeps blowing?


Did you check the crank sensor wire, it may be hitting the hot exhaust. does the wire going to fuel pump have a problem and is shorting out. ECM 1 ..... then there are 5 components that this fuse feeds
1-crank sensor
2- all injectors
3- ECM
4- electronic ignition control module
5- ignition coil - check for a bad wire in these areas. Hope this helps.

2002 venture wont start when its cold and rainy


Probably not. If one of the sensors were faulty you should have a check engine light on and a trouble code for the sensor.
Have you checked the plug wires ?
And as a side note, I don't show a 2002 Venture mini-van having a 3.8 engine.

2003 TRACTOR 4X4 WAGON IS MIS FIRING ON CYLINDER TWO


Try to see if you can get view the are where the plugs are firing in the dark. Check for arcing off the plug or wires to the metal engine parts. I fought with a vehicle for days trying to determine a misfire problem on a car that we just put new plugs, wires, and coils on. Turns out the ceramic insulator on one of the BRAND NEW plugs had a hairline crack down the length of the insulator. You could not see if with the naked eye, but you could feel it if you ran your finger over it. Easiest to find if you can run the engine in a dark garage.

Car hard to start on humid days


Just tuned up a jetta, put di-electric grease under the plug wire boots and especially the coil wire. The moisture causes mis-fire mainly at the coil. His VW had the same problem. Small pack of grease will be enough. buy 2 packs at adavance auto for $1.09 each.

Difficult starting in warm weather


Check the vacuum hose attached to the fuel pressure regulator under the hood next to your intake pull it off and see if any fuel is present, if there is replace regulator.you may have to tap hose with your finger to get any fuel out or start vehicle run until hot then shut off and recheck if no fuel present in vacuum line let me know and we can try something else.

Timing off. Back fire. trouble starting on rainy days. Runs sluggish. Hesitation.


New plug wires, sometimes when they get old they start to arc out and just make your car run terrible, especially on rainy days.

1997 Jetta 4 Doors Won't Start on rainy, wet and cold days


Damp is getting into your electrics. Spray all wires and disributor with WD40 after wet days or nights before trying to start it. That should cure it
