Not getting any fuel yeah that's one thing and really the first thing to check. Although, with Mercedes ( and almost all newer cars ) they make things so hard to get to, and in some cases even find! I would check the fuel filter first and replace it. After that it may be the fuel pump. Hope it helps! Taking it to the dealer would be costly to say the LEAST. Maybe a reputable shadetree mechanic if you know one.

Tahoe wont start, cranks tries to fire


Sounds like a fuel delivery problem. Has the fuel filter ever been changed? You can try banging on the bottom of the fuel tank with a blunt object ( hammer works ) while some one cranks the engine. If it starts suspect a bad fuel pump

2.4 pt cruiser wont try to crank even with starting fluid its got good firing on all cylinders good suction at intake and fuel pumps getting fuel to motor have no way to tell how strong the fuel press


If a volatile starting fluid, typically ether, won't make it fire or even sound like it is trying to fire the problem is likely to be with the spark though if attempting to start continuously for some time hasn't caused the smell of petrol about the place and caused the spark plugs to show signs of wetness there probably isn't any injection taking place either.

In the absence of both spark and injection it could be an immobiliser problem or it could be one or both of the positional sensors (crankshaft or camshaft) or the connections or wiring or the ECU that has failed.
A code read might help.

I suggest spending some time checking the fuses first and then carry out a thorough visual inspection of all the associated pipes, wires and cables before moving on to a more in depth diagnosis.

Good luck!

92 GMC sonoma 2.5L 4cylinder - replaced plugs,wires,fuel filter on the rail,checked fuel pump plenty of fuel. Wants to crank but doesnt seem like its getting fuel. used starting fluid still would fire off....


How about no spark or did you screw up the firing order when you replaced the plug wires? It is easy to do.Typically there are 2 things to get an engine to fire that's fuel and spark. other things will make it run bad but not even a short rumble when you use starting fluid, there is no ignition. Get a spark test tool from the auto parts store. Check the firing order and be sure your wires are in the correct order.

Car stalled out and died. Cranks, but wont start all of the sudden.


On an incline that you stopped on, dont under estimate that if your low on fuel it may not be picked up by the fuel pump, or your fuel pump may have went out. If you run low on fuel often or up & down hill on low fuel will cause your fuel pump to burn out premature, they even say not to run less than a qrtr tank to be safe, but todays cost in fuel usually people wait till the last minute (gallon) which puts a strain on the fuel pump as the gas cools the motor and incline and decline in roads will mimic a low tank. What doesnt make sence is you sprayed starting fluid which should have fired for a few seconds, which brings you to spark issues, check you coil pack plugs and wires, most likely coil pack over plug and wires should still fire even if a plug or wire goes bad, but the coil pack controls the power going to the wire then plugs.

My car won't start I have changed the coil fuel pump fuel pump relay and the Mfi relay I now think its the crank shaft relay but I do not know help me !


Sounds like maybe the main computer is bad. When you cranked the engine there is not any indication that it is firing. If you have changed the fuel pump and coil and it still wont even fire, the computer is most likely the cause. Even if the timming was off you would still get some indication that it was trying to start although it probably would not if the timming was off, but the fact it's not even trying to fire yeah that's my take.

I have a 2004 cavalier that has a new coil new starter new module and new crank sensor in it but want start it gets gas and oil


if fuel is getting to injectors, are the injectors plugged ! if you are getting fuel to engine plus a good spark it should start. check the plugs for fouling out. maybe there not firing right. if a plug or plugs are not firing. then they will be wet on the tips of the plug. crank engine a few times, then pull the plugs to see if they are firing.if not firing, check for bad plug wires. theres so many things that can cause this. its hard to say without being there!

have you checked to make sure that you are getting fire to the plugs. i believe this is coil over ignition maybe not but pull off of one of the plugs take a plug out and stick in boot and see if they are firing if not it is a ignition control module problem or crank or cam sensor.

2000 Chevy Blazer Cranks but wont start...


What about the fuel filter????? Have you changed it out??? If you can spary something like a started fluid, that means it is a fuel problem. My last check, it has to be above 50-psi on the fuel pressure to make it run right. I had 35psi, but whould not get over 30mph or down hill maybe 45mph. Check both filter & pressure, but check pressure with a New fule filter!!!!
