Have the fault codes read first
if the engine is around the 100,000 klm mark check for broken timing belt
indicates that the crank or cam shaft position sensor has failed or an ING fuse has blown

    Have checked all basics, no fault codes, 23000km and cambelt is fine and would've noticed that on turn over also, has spark and fuel, fires on turn over but just won't run, was running fine 3 weeks ago, has sat till now and now nothing.

SOURCE: my 4 runner starts sometimes and won't other times, it justs cranks over but won't run

As with any no start issue, you will need to check for spark and fuel pressure when it won't start to know how to proceed.

My 97 grand cherokee cranks but wont start i got fuel pressure and i sprayed starting fluid and changed the cps and still wont start looking for any and all solutions


Did it act like it wanted to start when you did that? You say cps but truthfully that don\'t tell me if its crank or cam? It should have a real distributor and you should check fire from there. Look at and check cap, rotor, and wires and make sure they are on correct If you still have no fire then replace ign coil.... Now.. if it was tring to crank when you sprayed it then listen on how it cranks. If it turns over slow,fast or if it sounds retarded. If any of those occur then check timing and all its componets. Make sure the fire you checking is good spark.. blue or red or both just as long as its fire. If you\'ve replaced the coil and still no fire then prolly gone be a timing chain broken but most of the time engine will turn over a lot faster in this factor. If you\'ve check chain and its good, then a broken cam or crankshaft is obvious. Now... you can dig deep into the whole checking voltage and computer if you like... but my personal experience is this problem has never been PCM or ECM

I have a 1995 ford mustang its getting gas and fires but will not start


Hello Brian,

Quick & easy to start with, do you have a second key for this vehicle? If so try that before you do anything else in case there is a problem with the transponder chip in the key.

After that you are into some checking I'm afraid. Basics are: Have you got fuel pressure? Have you got good fuel flow? (You do need to check both!) Have you got a constant spark? Have you got an injector pulse? An obvious one, but always overlooked, you have got good air flow entering the engine? I once had a car brought to me as a non runner that had "swallowed" a massive piece of plastic sheeting causing no air to enter the engine!! In the same vein: check the catalyst is not broken up, blocking the exhaust. Hopefully but the time you have checked all this you will be up and running again, if not get back to me and we'll run through some more checks.

My 1990 3.0 Toyota 4 runner won't start in the cold


If you have spark and fuel, the next stop would be either the crank position or camshaft position sensors.Either one of those can stop the engine from firing.

I HAVE a2000 windstar lx with 3.8. just put new plugs&wires cyl #5 IS LOADED with fuel and the cat converter is now getting cherry red


You may as well change the #5 Injector to start with. I imagine you rechecked the spark on that cylinder as well. Could be a cracked sparkplug too. Check routing of #5 Injector wire. If improperly placed it could pickup a pulse to inject from other cylinders and then fire constantly.
Most likely you broke loose carbon in the cylinder head when the plug was removed and then it blew carbon back to the Injector head, blocking it open.

I have 1998 sierra 1500 vortec 5.0 liters,when engine is cold (below 35 degre f )engine turn but don t start,i have fire,fuel pump run and i have pressure on my main fuel line juste before injector pack...


Camshaft To Crankshaft Position Correlation Fault is what p1345 means. if the problem isnt electrical I would imagine the timing chain could be stretched and the engine is out of time somehow
