Hi Anthony......,It's either electrical OR fuel so If you're a hands on guy then do this.... Pull a spark plug lead off a spark plug OR if it's a "COIL ON A SPARK PLUG" pull that off and put a spare spark plug into that spark plug lead OR coil, Then earth that spark plug to a clean part of the motor(make sure the spark plug is touching steel)Turn motor with the key and see if the spark plug sparks.... If it sparks then you have a fuel problem....... But if no spark then you have an electrical problem.... The links below are YouTube videos showing how to fix a car that doesn't start/cranks but doesn't start, Also there's videos down the right side of the links that may help as well...................

Getting a rapid misfire in cylinder 5 changed spark plugs ,cleared the code came back on the day later ???

Hi Jason, Sounds like you have a coil pack and one of your coils is faulty. To check which coil is faulty just pull a spark plug lead off a spark plug and plug the spark plug lead onto a SPARE spark plug, Now earth it to the CLEAN motor or body (make sure the spark plug is touching metal) Start the motor, it's going to run ROUGHER than usual but you'll see if that spark plug is sparking... If it sparks then that coil is good. Turn the motor off and replace the spark plug lead back on to the original spark plug. Repeat with the next spark plug lead and so on until you start your car and the spark plug doesn't spark, THAT'S YOUR FAULTY COIL...

Where is the 5th coil pack located on a 2005 buick rendezvous?

Hi patricia, If you have a faulty coil and your car's running rough to find the faulty coil just pull a spark plug lead off and start your car, If it runs (ROUGHER) than before then that coil is ok. Turn the car off and replace that spark plug lead back on to the spark plug. Repeat with the next spark plug lead and so on until you start your car and it runs the same as if THAT spark plug lead is on or off, NOW TO MAKE SURE THIS IS THE FAULTY COIL, Put a spark plug into the spark plug lead that's off and earth it to the motor or body (it has to be touching steel), Start the motor and if that's the faulty coil the spark plug won't spark I hope this helps.....

I have nisssan frontier o6 4 cylinder, I put a fuel pump , crank sensor, spark plug, still no start, engine spin over.

I would first check fuses. Second, check for any codes in the system. To make a motor run you need air, fuel, and spark. Pull a spark plug and use a spark plug tester while cranking the motor to determine if you have spark. If no spark, and you have replaced crank sensor I would suspect ignition control module unless you have coil over plugs. Also, when you turn the key on, listen for the injectors squirting fuel. Hard to diagnose with such little info. Just know your are missing one or more elements causing it not to start. If there is a mechanical issue inside the motor this could also cause a no start condition.

I was driving my 09 mazda 3 the other nite after a bad rain storm drove through some bad puddles slow and the last one I went through the car shut off and I got it towed and now just turns over but won't...

Bummer deal! Not likely you hurt the motor - but may have water on those parts that make and send spark voltage to the spark plugs. When wet the voltage follows the moisture away from the spark plug - so the motor spins - but can't start for lack of spark. Make sense to you? Each of those parts need to be removed and blown dry - then it will run good as need again. Motor and fuel additives like those mentioned below also help with removing moisture in tank and motor oil areas and is a great engine protector - anyway. Hope this helps...

I have a 2004 geand am. the motor turns over but wont start. I changed the fuel pump, the ignition is good, fuses are all good but it will not start

Check for spark (pull a spark plug and arc it to a grounded surface) and check for fuel to the engine (can be done through the spark plug hole opened by removing the spark plug)

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Need to check for fuel pressure. There is a schrader valve on the fuel rail on the belt side of the motor under the upper intake. Really common for those vehicles' fuel pumps to **** out. If you have fuel check for spark. You can do that by removing a spark plug then connecting the wire back to it and leaving the plug tip near unpainted metal on the motor. Step back DO NOT TOUCH THE PLUG WHILE THE MOTOR IS BEING CRANKED and have someone else try to start the car. You will see a blue or white spark at the tip if you're getting spark. An orange or red spark indicates a weak ignition coil.

The motor is 'swinging' when trying to start, but no spark?? There are new spark plugs. Recently after starting the motor, if you gave it petrol(accelerated) it would just die, but now it wont even start??...

If your VW don.t have spark - check Hall sensor located into distributor,if OK check ignition amplifier-located under a plastic cover top of wiper blade motor.This job is for qualified electrician
