My 2002 malibu ls wont start it will turn over but wont fire my check engine light is on but that in no other lights on no window no power locks nothen how do i fix it

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, check fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. Go from there.
We can also check circuits for power windows.

Truck fires really well but wont start, seems like no fuel

Please define "fire power". Is this just the power from the battery swinging the engine, or did you check if there is a healthy spark on the plug wires? If an engine dies without warning, the chances are very good it is the crank angle sensor in which case there will not be any spark on the wires even though the starter will swing the engine quite lustily without starting.

I went to start it and it fired up normally for about 2 seconds then engine cut out. EPC light was on. When i tried to start again it cranks but wont fire up. EPC light goes off during cranking but engine...

  • Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. While the light should be read by a VAC-COM software setup to retrieve the DTC codes I have a good idea what is going on. I am telling you now this is a very estimated guess as nothing is for sure with an undiagnosed light.

  • The first thing you want to check is the ECM relay that is in the relay panel under your hood in the junction box. It's location should be indicated on the underside of said junction box lid. I don't suspect this but check it anyway.

  • What almost always is the problem is what is called and engine speed sensor also known as a Crankshaft Position Sensor. Really really simple to fix. Do yourself a favor and get an OEM sensor from VW. You will be glad you did.

  • You will need some oil first because you will need to pull the oil filter to access this sensor. So drain all the oil and remove the oil filter. Then wait 10 minutes or so for the oil to completely drain. The sensor is right below your oil filter. Remove the connector and the mounting bolt and wiggle the old sensor out. Make sure to use a new O Ring and just press the new sensor in. Tighten the mounting bolt just nice and snug. Not to tight though. Replace the connector. Finish up on the oil.

  • This is almost always the fix. Should it not for some reason, and it may not, then you will need a scan from a shop or a dealership. I am confident in giving you this information as a fix though or I would just suggest you get the code first.

  • Hope this helps and please do feel free to post any followup questions or any comments you may have. Also if this information is helpful please do leave a comment so other know I offer good service. Thanks again.

Won't start, back fires, engine knocks, spitting black smoke. can't hook up to computer because it wont start and getting a new battery will reset the computer in the truck.

i dont need to be started to hook up computer. also something that bad will show codes even after changing battery if you crank it a bit.sounds like a cam or crank sensor problem though or engine got wet

95 jeep cherokee country 6 cyl auto. wont crank all the time

Bad solenoid i would guess. Not making a connection there. Any basic wiring and ignition switch problems should be alleviated by jumping the starter with a screwdriver. I would check the solenoid and starter brushes

Insalled new computer,cranks but wont start

Does it start and die after 1-2 seconds or just cranks and never fires? Did it run before you installed the computer or are you trying to cure a no start problem?
