I have a1996 ford probe gt 24 valve it cranks over but won't start

First check for spark at the spark plugs. If you are getting spark, then check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail (shrader valve). If you have spark and fuel you may have a vacuum leak or a timing issue.

94 chrysler town and country stalls after getting to a normal temp but wont start back up till its cooled down.

The crank position sensor could be bad.Check the injectors & fuel pressure regulator with this test.Hold the gas pedal to the floor while you crank the engine.Does it start??If yes,the fuel pressure regulator is bad or you've got a internally leaking fuel injector.Let the engine idle,pull the vacuum hose off the regulator and see if gas is inside the hose or gas is seeping from the regulator vacuum port.If yes,the regulator is bad.You can shut the engine off,wait 5 minutes then pull all of the spark plugs.If a plug is wet with fuel,that cylinders injector is leaking.A bad ignition module or ect sensor can also cause a no start.You can do the following test when the problem is occurring.Remove the air intake hose from the throttle body,spray carb cleaner or starting fluid into the TB opening, reinstall the hose,try starting the engine. If it starts and runs for a few seconds then dies,you've got a no fuel problem. If it doesn't start at all,you've got a no spark problem.

1994 nissan pickup, runs rough. wont hardly run. cant find the problem.

It could be many different things. Check the vacuum lines. Check spark plugs. Check compression in engine, check fuel lines filter and injectors or carb. It's sounds like a misfire which can be caused by incorrect fuel, spark, or compression. And sometimes they run rough because vacuum pressure is incorrect or line is leaking. Start with the basics and go from there

hi martin i am shannon . you will first need to determan if the problem is fuel or spark related . for fuel just add 1 oz of gas into the intake through the throttle. you will need to remove the big black hose at the throttle . just pour the fuel in. if it starts right up then you have a fuel issue most likely a bad fuel pressure regulator. too test the spark i would get a spark tester . connect it to one of the plug or coil wires. set it to 25.0000 volts then have some one turn the engine over while you which for spark. if you get no spark you may have a bad crank angle sensor. hear is a spark tester i use . this one is at Autozone.

My chev pick-up is not starting right away after hot and you cam smell fuel and i changed fuel pump

If it's not leaking fuel under the vehicle, the problem could well lie in a faulty Fuel Pressure Regulator.... If the rubber diaphram in the FPR becomes compromised, your described symptoms appear due to fuel leaking into the intake and not leaving the fuel line w/ injectors with enough initial pressure to instantly start the car.
Simply remove the vacuum line which is connected to the fuel pressure regulator then insert the key and turn to the "run" (not "crank") position. If fuel squirts out where you disconnected the vacuum hose, then this is definitely your problem. Good Luck!

95 Camaro Z-28 starts hard

Need to verify fuel pressure at the injector rail with the engine cranking and with the key on and engine off. Specification is 55 - 61psi. The pressure should build with one cycle of the key. If the pressure is slow to build up there may be a restriction in the system between the pump and fuel rail .
The system should hold pressure without leaking down. If it leaks down there is a problem. If all is good there Checking for a good blue spark at several plugs to verify the ignition system is working ok. A vacuum leak could also cause a hard start issue.
A bad pick up coil or weak crank sensor can cause hard start issues also.

97 Chevy K-1500 wont start

One thing to check is fuel volume you can have press but not enough volume. also check for cranking vacuum you should have at least 3 to 5 in. hg or more . a engine has to have vacuum to crank. you can check it with a hand held gauge. if zero or close to zero this could be caused by clogged exhaust to a stuck open pcv to a leaking intake. does the motor turn over at the same speed it always has ? not faster or slower no noise ? check the plugs see if they are fouled, check to see if you have the intake with the spider in it? those go bad and no start spark fuel but no start. a bad egr you can use a hand held vacuum pump on it to check it. the egr on gm's can cause no starts. I hope I was able to give you some ideas of things to check.

Sounds like a large vacuum leak,low fuel pressure,fuel pressure regulator failure, idle air control valve stuck open,plugged fuel filter.Also check for good consistent blue spark at spark plugs or jumped timing chain.Hope this helps!
