If it is turning over like the plugs are out, I would suspect that the timing belt is the problem. Make sure it doesn't have any stripped teeth on it. Make sure it is turning while you are turning over the motor.

Choked and died while idling ,i try to start it again wouldnt start ,could itbe a timing belt ??

More likely it is a fuel problem. but could be a spark problem (timing belt has to do with spark) or least likely it could be the air intake. To check if you have the proper spark (coming due to a good timing belt) pull the number one spark plug and use a gapping tool (it's cheap tool but works good) to check the spark plug. If the spark plug has the correct gap then turn the key to watch if it sparks if it does't spark try a new plug if that doesn't spark you may need a timing belt. To check if it is the timing belt you do not really need to check the gap of the plug but if you already have the plug out and it is not the timing belt this information could be very useful. With more info I could probably narrow it down for you, post back if you like.

My car just died and wont start at all every thing looks ok i turn the key nothing try to pull start but it wont i look at the timeing belt it looks good now what ?????

If the timing belt has over 100,000 miles on it revisit the timing belt possibilty. even though it can look ok it can have stripped one or two teeth. next listen for the fuel pump in the tank to run for about 5 seconds after you turn on the key. if it's not you likely need a new one. Next check for spark at the spark plug. you can do this buy removing the wire from the plug & inserting another one into the wire then hold the threaded part against a metal part of the engine & have a friend turn over the engine. if you see spark your good. if there is no spark you could have a number of issues & you will need to follow that up. All this is asuming the engine is turning over. if not your starter may be at fault.
Good luck let me know

1990 mitsubishi truck statred up one morning, reved up engine, then it jus died, it turns over but wont strat, i changed the coil, and cap and rotor, it still wont start,

Pull a plug wire and have some one crank the engine as you observe the end of the plug wire for spark DONT HOLD IT IN YOUR HAND WILL ITS CRANKING lay it next to metal if there is spark you will notice it arcing against the metal they do make a tester to do this but if you dont have one laying it next to metal will do. If you have no spark could be your crank sensor has gone bad if you have spark and it still doesnt start could be your timing has jumped.Have the codes extracted and see what it tells you good luck to you.

I was driving and at the light it died it turns but wont start

Let's start with the easy things. First, some info about the vehicle - how many miles? What model year? Have you ever changed the timing belt? Is the check engine light on? Did you hear anything before the engine stopped?

Check for spark by removing one of the spark plugs from the engine. Reinstall the spark plug wire on the plug and rest it against something metal on the engine. Have an assistant crank the engine. Watch the bottom of the spark plug for spark. If you see a spark, you need to look for a fuel problem or the timing belt. If you do not see a spark, check for a blown ENGINE or IGNITION fuse in the fuse block.

When you sit in the driver's seat, turn the ignition switch to the ON position and listen for a humming sound. That is the fuel pump. If you hear it, you know it is good. If not, check for a blown FUEL pump fuse.

Depending on the test equipment and tools you have, we can continue to troubleshoot. Do you have a voltmeter and some sockets? Get back to me with all of the answers to the above questions.

1995 toyota coroll turns over but wont spark at plugs, changed cap and rotor

sounds like you need an ignighter which controls spark and it can be found in the distributor under the cap it should have a plug (wire harness) on it.

93 acura legend just replaced alternator and battery now turns over but wont start help

I f the car turned over before you replaced the alternator then maybe the problem is not the alternator but ignition issues, sometime the igniton module goes on these cars without warning my advise would be to remove one of the spark plugs to check for spark, remove wire then plug in plug to wire lay the plug on a part of the motor that is metallic, have an assistant turn the car over and try to start look to see if plug has a blue spark or purple don't do test in direct sunlight. If a good spark is seen go on to next test stick your finger into the hole where the spark plug goes have an assistant turn motor over you should hear and feel alot of pressure trying to push your finger out of hole if you don't feel a good deal of pressure you probably broke the timing belt and the cylinder head must be removed and rebuilt because of the nature of the designed interference engine (valve gets hit by piston bending it when timing belt breaks) good luck

I put a 91 engine in to 88 body every thing fit but my engine wont start

Only three possiblities. no gas, no spark, or the timing of the 2. So first follow the full lines and disconnect and turn on the ignition. That will start the full pump. you should see gas flow. Next remove a plug wire and dont hold it but place it near a plug or anything metal on the engine. You should see a spark when cranking the car. Finally its the timming of the two. remove spark plug from number 1 cylinder, with a wrench turn the crank shaft around untill the cylinder comes to top dead center. Look through the spark plug hole you should see the piston top. Now take off the distrbuter cap and look to see which terminal the rotor is touching. follow the wire and make sure it is the same wire that goes to the number 1 cylinder. Of course if the distributor rotor isnt rotating then of course your timing belt is broke. Good Luck.

Check the fuel pressure. A slight dip in pressure will keep the engine from starting. When is the last time you did a tune up? Even if you are getting some spark you might not have enough. New plugs, wires, distr. cap could solve this problem. Or try a new fuel filter. When diagnosing a car problem always do simple cheap things first, as this usually ends up being the cause.

Starting problem with honda civic

Next things to check are fuel and spark, remove a spark plug and with the wire attached crank the motor, if you see spark in the plug then it's not a spark issue and probably a fuel problem. If there is no spark could be bad plugs or wires, or distrubitor cap. To check fuel remove injector cover and crank motor, if there is no fuel coming out then check fuel filter, fuel pump.

Good Luck
