If it starts while supplying fuel, you have a fuel issue. do you have fuel pump power and fuel pressure.

My 2004 Kia optima shut off will driving. It cranks but doesn't want to start up. Can any body help me?


Well , it's probably missing one of three thing's , spark , fuel or compression ! Now you need to find out which one , pull a spark plug wire an hold a screw driver in the end of the plug wire an hold it close to ground an have someone crank the engine over ! don't hold the screw driver by the metal , you don't won't to get zapped . If there is spark spray some carburetor cleaner into the engine at some point ,vacuum hose ,air intake , the throttle plate would be best , there is usually a black tube going from the air filter box to the engine ! A couple of clamps holds it on , take it off an the engine side you should be able to see the throttle plate ! If it tries to start after spraying carb. cleaner in , you have a fuel delivery problem ! Fuel pump relay , fuel pump driver module or the fuel pump it self is bad ! Now if you have spark an sprayed carb. cleaner an it did not try to start you need to check engine compression ! The timing belt may have worn enough for it to jump time a little causing it to be out of time ! Back in the 80's the little cogs on the belt would wear off an the cam shaft wouldn't turn . Back then it was easy to check by taking the distributor cap off a see if it would turn while cranking the engine !

2004 chevy blazer will not turn over


Just to clarify what you said, if it cranks it turns over.
If it won't start, you would check for spark at the plugs and fuel pressure at the rail. Vortec engines need at least 60psi fuel pressure to start. If you have spark you could try spraying carb cleaner into the intake hose to boost the amount of fuel as a test.

Wont start


1st-Check Fuel(disconnect intake hose and spray carb cleaner or light fluid in the throttle body). reconnect and try starting. Check and listen to make sure the pump is priming itself when the key is switched on.
2nd-Check Fire(spark). Make sure that spark is getting to the plugs
3rd-Check Air(compression)

Engine will not run, seems like it is not getting gas?


Spray carb spray or starter fluid into intake hose then try to start. If starts then suspect fuel pump and or fuel pump relay. If does not start check spark. Pull off spark plug wire and ground to metal make sure no fuel is present and be careful not to spark yourself, crank car while grounding out wire if no spark suspect coil, fuse, ignition control module, crank sensor, wiring, or computer.

Truck will not start but fuel pump turns on any ideas of what else it could be


Either fuel or fire. Try spraying carb cleaner into the intake(remove air filter and spray there while cranking) If that don't start it then its fire. Check for spark at coil then at plug. That will narrow it down.

spray some carb. cleaner down the air intake hose if it, in fact run have someone start your car as you spray cleaner and the person who starts the car give it some gas and try to equal the revs.per spray of cleaner try not to let it die so the suction can clean out you intake also make it a good habit to run proper gas treatment frequintly. do that as many times as needed
