100 psi per cylinder is way too low--should be in the vicinity of 150-165 per cylinder

Car cranks hard but won't start

The two big categories for cranks but failure to start are
1) no fuel
2) no spark
Things to check for no fuel: a) out of gas which you have checked so that is not the issue, b)bad fuel pump, c) clogged fuel filter
Things to check for no spark: a) see if you have any spark...lots of websites and videos about this b) bad pickup sensor in ignition system c) bad timing
Good luck on further troubleshooting..

First make sure you have spark. Change the oil, remove spark plugs, disable spark and fuel system, turn engine over to build oil pressure, check compression in each cylinder, reassemble and start.

I have a 1984 Ranger 2.0 engine. It belonged to my girlfriend who let it sit up a while. I got it to crank and run and started driving it. Everyonce in a while it would loose power and one time backfired....

check the oxygen intake system. I'm not sure but your car is eighter the caburator or fuel injected.

in anycase the white smoke and cuting off, backfiring and loosing power is cause of the caburator or oxygen sensor (in fuel injected cars).

get your oxygen intake system serviced. it fits your problems perfectly. seeing the age of your car I'm betting its caburator, have that serviced or replaced.

I have a 2001 chrysler 300m that is not starting. It is getting fuel to the injection system, and I think fire to the plugs. Why is the car turning over, but not starting?

You think it has spark ? You have to be sure it has spark. Take off a spark plug. Then have somebody help you turn the ignition. Ground the spark plug attached to the wire to the engine. Tell them to turn the engine. You should see a blue spark at the end of the spark plug. use gloves to handle the plug. You don't want to get a shock. If you don't see a spark. Something is not right. it is the coil(s) or something else.

Hi james, you might have air in your injection system. ussually this air pocket could be corrected by bleeding the system; or, your fuel filter is clogged. First the filter, if your fuel filter is directly attached to a hand pump, and your filter has a sendimentary bleed port at its bottom, drain this first. Then, after its drained, close the drain plug. Next is to look for the fuel return bolt on the injection pump(usually it has a "out" word etched on it) and usually uses a 17mm hexagonal head. Loosen the bolt and slowly remove it. Take care, and watch orientation of the two copper washers that are used for gasket. You might also find a filter screen attached to the bolt on some injection pumps. Anyways, if there is no filter screen, re-screw in the bolt(remember the copper washers) but do not tighten it just let it loose for a while. Now for the sweaty part, using the hand pump, pump  the fuel in until the return bolt spits out fuel. You will see bubbles on the first few pumps but do not stop until it bellows out pure and clear fuel w/o bubbles. If you attained the goal, stop pumping and screw the bolt shut. Wipe-off excess fuel from the injection pump. Try starting the engine. when the engine turns over let it warm up for a while the with, again, with your no. 17mm open wrench, try loosening the injector feedline one at a time(while the engine is running).Watch out for squirting fuel, your engine might rattle a little but it will be fine, just let the fuel flow a few seconds then re-tighten the nut. Do this on all 4 injectors. Let the engine run a few minutes then shut it down. Let it completely cool down then re-start it. Also try checking glow plug(or heater plug) condition. If one glow plug is busted replace all 4 at the same time with the same brand. this would help to keep the engine attain a 1-click engine run.

Hope this helps.

I just put a new head gasket on my 2.6lt isuzu motor, now it wont start. I have spark at the plugs. Do I need to bleed the fuel injectors somehow after I had them off??

Make sure you have connect the fuel injectors
electrical connecters in the correct injector.
You don't have to bleed them. Also the plug wires. If so it should start.
