Replace the fuel pump. They can pump gas, but not at enough pressure.

If the vehicle is getting fuel and spark and has decent compression it should start. You may have an issue with the injectors not working causing a no fuel supply to the engine. Does the check engine light come on during a bulb check? The injectors are normally fused and are usually under the fuse marked ECM or Ecm A or ECM B. It is also possible the vehicle may be flooded for some reason or another. You can try holding your foot to the floor ( this will shut off injectors) while cranking the engine to clear out a flooding situation

    The check engine light is an indication the computer is powered up and able to operate the various sensors. If the light doesn't work, usually the computer is not working properly. It is als a valuable diagnostic tool. It may contain codes that will point you in the direction as to what is not operating properly causing the no start.

The engine will not turn over, crank senor maybe


MAYBE? It could be many other things too. Do you have spark, gas from the injectors, fuel pressure, does the engine turn (combustion), exhaust pressure. Start by scanning the computer, any codes to work with? Do you smell gas,Then try pulling the plugs, wet w/ gas? Maybe loss of spark. Checking for spark & to ck the fuel injectors require specialized equipment. I cant go any further unless you are equipped. Getting back to your original question, yes I've changed many crank sensors for no start problems. Have it ckd before you just throw money out the window. Good luck

My 2000 oldsmobile bravada does not want to start in the morning. I have replaced the distributor cap, spark plugs, starter, fuel pump, ckp sensor, fuel filter, and spark plug wires. Please tell me why...


This is kind of a long shot but if it is difficult to start after sitting all night but then starts just fine during the rest of the day then you may be just a pound or two low on fuel pressure. This engine needs a minimum of 60 psi of fuel to start properly. If you have only 59 psi it will crank and crank and finally start but will behave all day long as if nothing was ever wrong. You could also have a leaky fuel regulator or injector that is causing it to be partially flooded when you attempt to start it but usually those problems bothers more after the engine is warmed up. Even some new fuel pumps won't put out the needed 60+ psi and sometimes the fuel pressure regulator can go bad and not allow the pressure to build up to the 60+ psi range. The only true way to know for certain what the actual pressure is to have someone test it with a very accurate test gauge. Hope this helps out a bit and good luck.

car can't start,there are several factor we can consider in this
case to asssure that car will run normally.have all this check
this mostly parts of your ignition system,checka faulty coil this
give your spark plug sufficient current to burn and produce
compression.your conderser must be check also if this was
busted,your contact point must be clean,the high tension wire
should be check also replace faulty wirng,check particular
timing,and replace busted spark plug.

Please stop using the starting fluid, it is terrible for your engine- use choke cleaner if you need to do this in the future again. you can run it on choke cleaner indefinately if needed.
It sounds like your fuel pump quit on ya. When you turn the key to the "run" position do you hear the pump run in the tank for 3-5 seconds? you should. The fuel pump is in the gas tank and the tank has to be removed to acess it.
you can remove the coil wire from the coil and check to see if the coil is firing a spark. crank the engine with the wire off. make sure there is no starting fluid or choke cleaner fumes around before you do this-k? Carefull not to let it shock you. if it is sparking then you should check the fuel pressure. it should be 60psi while cranking the engine. you will need a fuel pressure guage to do this.
Good luck........Scott
