Question about Cars & Trucks
Alastair year cart was completely dead l've replaced the starter /generator as well as the cylinoid and battery . I've driven it off and on for the last few days . Now as l was driving it it died it will not start only act like it wants to but will not kick in and go
It must have lost gas or spark, so start there.
Do you hear the fuel pump turn on with key turned to ON? It should turn on for 2 seconds to put pressure in the lines and the fuel rail. If unsure, check fuel pressure and see if at specs. Or try spraying some starter fluid into the intake and see if that causes the engine to run for a few seconds- if it does, then you know it was a gas problem like a failed pump.
If fuel pressure is good, check for spark at one of the spark plugs. You need to see a blue, snapping spark to verify the ignition system is working properly. If no spark, test the Ignition Control Module. Parts stores will test them for free. If the ICM is good, suspect the crank position sensor. This sensor tells the engine computer when to signal for spark, so if the sensor has failed, you will not have ignition spark.
