I would check the cam and crank position sensors. If it is not getting info from one of them there will be no spark.

Cannot diagnose or run temp. Sealer for what i believe is head blown because car wont start it cranks but sputters and kills battery?


Sounds like head gasket again, but may be more serious this time. Overheating is not something to take lightly.

Pull plugs. crank. Water come out of cylinders? Head gasket. Possible cracked block or head this time, too. I'd be looking at a replacement engine.

Overheated and wont start


Depending on the severity of the overheat, I would suspect the engine may be hydrolocked. I would remove the spark plugs and then try to crank engine. If will then crank over, coolant coolant may emerge from spark plug holes. In which case internal engine damage is likely. ie head gasket, or cracked head/block.

1998 SATURN 4 DOOR DOHC JUST REPLACED THE HEAD GASKET MYSELF WHICH WENT FINE. BOUGHT NEW SPARK PLUGS AND I HAVE THE CORRECT FIRING ORDER BUT FOR SOME REASON 2 OF THE SPARK PLUGS ARE NOT GIVING ENOUGH


Are you saying the engine will not crank, or not start ?
If you think two of the cylinders are not getting spark, something may have happened to the coil pack or the crank-cam sensors.
If all 4 plug wires are getting spark, two of them may be on the wrong cylinders. The firing order is not always the same as the plug wire layout.

Car turns over but does not start. Battery good


If it over heated, could have bad head gasket's, fill radiator with water, crank engine with radiator cap off, if water is push out of radiator while cranking, bad head gaskets', also remove spark plug's, crank engine if any water, bad head gasket, also when spark plug's removed, check for any water on them.If there is any water on plug's, bad head gasket, also could try doing a cylinder compression test, if bad compression, head gasket, no compression, wont start that way.

Can you put a socket and ratchet or breaker bar on the damper bolt,, Can you turn the engine over at all?? that is the big bolt on the pulley where the crank is. If you cannot budge the engine, then it is seized up more than likely and the bearings have melted to the crank.

Need the spark plug cable order for2000honda accord lx 4cylinder


The firing order is; 1-3-4-2 and the rotor moves in a counterclockwise direction. Turn the crank shaft and set the engine at TDC (top dead centre). This ill set the rotor arm pointing at No1 cylinder. From this point you can replace the HT leads in the above order.
