Could be. You need to check for spark and fuel pressure first.

98 chrysler sebring sat w/out running for 4 years cranks but wont start any suggestions as to what is the problem or what to do to make it start


I would have probably given it a total tune-up, first, checked all the fluids. New antifreeze. Changed the oil and filter. Drained the gas tank, used fresh gas. Pulled the spark plugs and belt, put a drop or two of oil in each cylinder, then turned the crank by hand before trying the starter motor.
Then, 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 proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?

I have a '91 oldsmobile corral 3.3L. Acts like it's getting to much gas. When it starts,runs fine. New fuel pressure regulator and oil pressure switch. Now won't start,any ideas?


When the problem is ongoing, 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 proper fuel pressure. Also, check for a fuel injector pulse.

Why wont start


Ok well there is only two things that make a combustion engine run! If you are getting gas to the fuel rail and it has adequate fuel pressure at the rail then you have a spark problem! Pick up a spark tester( looks like a plug wire in a way but has a light ) Plug it into the first plug on the right side of the motor,(# 1 cylinder) and have a friend turn over the motor. There should be positive spark and the light indicator should light as a constant . If it is intermittent in any way than spark is why u will not start. Then on these years I always start with a new coil or coil packs depending on your type of engine! Hope this helps!! Just my opinion and I could be wrong ! Good luck.

1987 5.0 mustang turns over got spark doesnt start tones of gas in cyllenders timing is set still wont start. took plugs out and there soaked with fuel got spark and still does not run


you're a victim of a flooded engine. if it's got fuel injection then crank it with the gas pedal fully depressed; that's called a clear flood mode that shuts down the injectors while cranking to give the plugs a chance to dry off. if it's got a carburetor then you'll have to take the plugs out and dry them off manually. in either case you should pull out the oil dipstick and smell it; if it smells strongly of gas you should change the oil to avoid bearing failure because the oil has gas in it and is too thin to lubricate. I usually take out the plugs and either blow them dry with a compressor or put them on a hot plate to warm them up so if there is any gas in the cylinders it will ignite faster. while they are heating up I blow the cylinders with compressed air to eliminate any accumulated fuel in the cyl. before I put the plugs back in. make sure the choke is open and crank it with the gas pedal fully depressed for about 5-10 seconds and then release the gas pedal. It should start.

2003 Nissan Altima won't start?


A car needs 3 things to start. Air, fuel, and spark. Check that it can get air by removing the air cleaner and inspecting it. Leave the air cleaner off for now. Try a squirt of starting fluid into the carburetor (not a lot mind you, just a quick squirt). Be prepared to quench a flame if the engine backfires through the carburetor (have a wet towel handy). Crank the engine. If it fires, you have spark. If it does not fire, you have ignition problems. If it fires and stalls out quickly, you have fuel problems.
For fuel problems: Be sure you have gas! (I know it is obvious, but check the tank!). If the car has not been used for awhile, the gas may have gummed up the carburetor. While it is possible for the weekend mechanic to take a carburetor apart and clean it, it is probably best left to a professional mechanic. Verify that you are getting gas to the carburetor by detaching the rubber gasoline hose at the carburetor. Most cars today have electric fuel pumps, so turning on the ignition should result in a stream of fuel from the gasoline hose. If not, crank the engine and see if a mechanical fuel pump moves the gas. If you get no gas, find out why or your car will never start. If you get gas, the carb is probably gummed up. It is best to conduct this last test into a mason jar to catch the gas, and it is best to postpone the cigarette break until after the test is complete.
If you suspect the ignition, pull a spark plug. It should look clean and whitish to light coffee color. If it is filled with carbon and oil, you have other engine problems. You can look for an ignition spark by laying the plug case against the engine while it is attached to the distributor wire. Crank the engine and you should see a spark jump the gap at the spark plug tip. This spark is often small and hard to see in sunlight. Do not perform the spark plug test in the temporal vicinity of the fuel test. A hot spark with gasoline nearby is dangerous.

A car that turns over means that at least the battery is good. Try next to insure it has air, gas, and spark.

Moved my rx8 yesterday.i got ack in it this


verify condition by spraying some starter fuel in it.it should start and die if its a fuel problem.
if it still does nothing start checking any and all fuses.if all the fuses are good take out a spark plug and verify no spark.
if no spark check the ignition module.
it might be able to have it checked at autozone for free.but you will have to remove it.

Cant get started


if you say it is getting gas and is firing take spark plugs out it is probably flooded replace them with new plugs before re installing them let the spark plugs stay out for a hour so gas that is in cylinders may evaporate! and if you did flood it pull dip stick if strong gas odour is present you might want to change the oil most times when flooded all the gas runs down in crank case polluting the oil badly smart to change it once you get it running again good luck.

Was low on oil and wouldnt start. put in oil and still wont start. is sitting on a hill


Low on oil will NOT ever prevent an engine from starting - unless it is a small engine with oil shutoff.

Will not start is a fuel or spark problem...
So. start with fuel:
1: level in gas tank
2. fuel pump delivering it to the engine.

If you can get some gas in a squart bottle and spray it into the intake - and have some one crank it... if it fires, then it is gas and troubleshoot 1 and 2 above...
If it will not fire with gas injected directly into the intake, it may be spark.

1. Pull a plug wire and hold it near the gngine block. Have someone crank the engine and check for spark...
If none, look for bad coil, voltage to coil, etc. that circuit..l.

2. If spark at the wire (from 1 above) then assume timing... with out adequate oil, you may have distroyed the timing belt/chain tensioner (it uses oil pressure to stay tight). Check the timing (both ignition and cam). If the belt is gone, nothing will fire.

Best of luck - lots of possibilities here - so I just want to get you started in the right direction (and away from the oil issue) - besides, you said that you added oil - but not too much - since you cannot get a decent oil level check on a hill!!
