Question about Mitsubishi Lancer

1 Answer

97 cb lancer wgn The car broke down and would not start. On inspection found that the plugs were wet witth fuel. I replaced them and the car started and ran but not very well. If the car is left over nite the same problem occurs it wont start and the plugs are wet. Also there is a good spark. I suspected the air flow meter but somebody suggested that the wax pallet in the throttle body could be at fault. Any help would be greatly appreciated

That is probably because of a too rich mixture on start. I don't think that cylinders are flooded overnight, that would be unusual.
To ensure you can remove spark plugs overnight, and put them back on start in the morning. If the problem is righ mixture, then the problem will restart as usually. If problem was flooding because of a leak (valve, butterfly), then after drying up the engine will start immediately.

Rich mixture can be caused by incorrect MAF or AIT sensors causing wrong choke settings, by wrong spark plugs cable order, distribution problems, valve problems, choke butterfly problem, or by a bad PCM. Sometimes scanning the car for OBD codes can tell you something on the problem

My '97 ford taurus isnt kicking over while tryn to start it up


Anything done to car, or happened recently that might affect this?
If starter fluid doesn't work, and starter is cranking normally (too fast may point to a timing belt broke, too slow may mean battery run down and not producing sufficient spark), there's still a problem in your ignition. Pull a sparkplug or two. After cranking a little they should be wet with gas. Check for compression while a plug is out: hold your finger over plug hole when cranking. You should feel pressure buildup and release over and over as long as cranking.
A properly timed engine needs spark, fuel, and compression to start. Keep reviewing your procedure. Something is not right.
You may want to have the computer scanned for possible trouble codes. Check plug wires for proper routing. Were plugs gapped right?

I just had this problem with a Sunfire that had the 2.2...I found the timing chain tensioner broke apart and not the car out of time.If it is the tensioner you will probably want to drop the oil pan and make sure there are not and particles of the tensioner in there.

Engine turns over but wont start? it has spark! and fuel!


Pull out # 1 spark plug and put back into plug wire, rest on motor block so that end of electrode is against metal. turn motor over and have a finger or compression gauge in # 1 cylinder, check to see if spark occur at same time as compression (compression will blow air past finger or raise gauge). When you say it has fuel do you mean gas tank has fuel? Are you sure fuel is getting to the cylinders? are plugs wet with fuel? Does it turn over but kinda thumps or backfire (Caugh)? Check the spark and compression first. if they don't happen at same time, the timing skipped or belt broke. if all is good pull plugs and inspect, could be flooded (WET) from fuel. either replace or spray with starting fluid and compressed air to dry them. spray starting fluid into air intake if starts then stalls, try again, if same thing happens then you have a fuel problem. try these suggestions first 1/2 hr time table, hopefully sucess, if not it sure indicates fuel.
