overheating could be caused by a stuck thermostat or a clogged radiator not firing on #1 plug could be a fouled plug or bad wire or it may be grounding on the block and your coiil may not have been put in at the right mark

SOURCE: won't start

check the spark, if spark is weak it will not start, also if battery is weak it will not start, it will crank but most of the AMP from batttery is taken by the starter.

The correct spark plugs are very important. Glad to hear you got it fixed good.

95 buick wont start


Got fuel? Sounds crazy but you'd be surprised how many times I have poured a gallon of gasoline into someones car to get it to start.

No start condition is the most frustrating problem. More information on what happens when you turn the key would help......but basicaly you need 4 things to make a car start. Fuel. Air. Spark. Timing. Fuel, Air, Spark and Timing are needed to start/run. Asked about fuel, but is the fuel getting to the cylinder? Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail(s)? When you turn the key to the "On" or "Run" position, do you hear a whining sound coming from the rear (fuel tank area)? That is your fuel pump priming the system. No sound? Check fuses and relays associated with the fuel system. Air. You need air to the cylinder to make it start and run. Check your air intake and filter. Really clogged and dirty filter? Pull it out and try to start. No go? Put it back (change ASAP) and look for Spark. Spark includes battery. Are there any loose connections to/from your battery? Really corroded terminals? Clean and tighten the connections. Try to start. No go? Pull the spark plug wire off an easily accessible spark plug (grasp the "boot" as close to the plug as possible and wiggle back and forth easily while pulling - these boots and wire connectors are fairly delicate). Remove the spark plug (be careful and dont break it or cross thread it when putting back in) and pop the wire back on it and set the plug on top of your engine (away from the spark plug hole). Have someone try to start the engine. You should see the spark plug fire its tiny bright blue spark. If not, you have found your problem. The problem is likely a bad coil, bad coil wire, distributor cap, rotor or a combination of these. If you have spark, then it has come down to timing. There are lots of things that affect timing in modern cars. There are a couple of sensors that jump out - Crankshaft and Camshaft position sensors. These will generally quit working while driving and you will likely notice the problem beforehand with it running really rough and getting crappy mileage, and the check engine light will come on and give you all kinds of hints. IF you turn the key and nothing happens, it might be a broken timing belt, but again, those usually fail under working conditions. It is possible (rare) the timing belt slipped/broke when you last shut off the engine, but I would point at the other 3 things first (Fuel, Air & Spark). Hope this helps. Good luck.

Setting timing marks


no start is a whole other matter. (double posted)
my guess (???) you put i a new cam belt to this DOHC engine?
1: new belt
2: timed it right.
3: turn engine by hand , to feel the valves not hit piston tops.? spark plugs out.
4: did a 4 cyl, leak down test with the guage. to see if valve are ALREADY bent, this step saves making them worse. if already damaged, or if the cam is wrong now.
(bravery starts here)
5: you crank it over, and checked for spark, ok got spark x4 and is timed right, (will be wrong, if cam is wrong, for sure, big hint here.)
6: got spark ?, good compression?, and now we try test fuel.
I spray test fuel into the plenum (if not flooding already)
yes, runs for 3 seconds, (good engine is good, but no fueling)
no, engine is bad. spark is timed wrong, or cam timed wrong.

just 6 steps.... if you do them you can save this motor. or at the least
prevent cascade damage.

the goal here is to get it to run on test fuel, , we can fix fueling issues
now.. as the engine is good. a major goal of many.

1992 mazda mpv, 6 cyls. it occurs a year ago after tune up. its luck power. during smog test, and now it cranks but wont go through when it start. changed the rotor, spurk plugs and cable


Check your gas for possible water. Just in case try a can of SEAFOAM in your gas. It will take about 10 min of running to work. Also recheck the gap on the spark plugs it should be .044 gap. One other thing to check is the firing order and make sure the wires were put back in the right place to the right spark plug

Hi. i have a 1994 s10 blazer and it will not start for anything. i changed the injectors and the fuel pump, spark plugs are fine and tubes are in the right posisioon, do you know what it could be.


Anytime a car wont start its missing one of the key things it needs to start. Air, Fuel, spark or compression. The first thing to check is to pull a wire off the spark plug and put a screw drive in the end of the wire. Lay the screw driver on the engine near metal. Crank it and look for a large blue spark it should make a nice popping noise.
If no spark try the same thing with the coil wire. If spark its the cap or rotor. No spark its the coil or module.
If the plugs have spark, try pouring a small amount of gas in the throttle body and see if that starts it. If it does, fuel problem check filter and pump.
If it wont start with either or gas in the throttle body and the plugs have spark then it is either a timing or compression issue. Remove the plug wire from the center of the distrib cap and then remove the cap making sure no wires come off. Have someone crank the engine and see if the rotor spins. If it does not you need to replace the timing chain/belt. If it does spin rent a compression checker and check each cylinder.

Hope this helps.

1998 civic ex wont start


theres a couple of ways to check it.You can remove the sparkplug wire put a screw driver on the wire side place it about a 1/4 inch away from the block have someone crank it over and see if there is spark.If no spark remove your distributer cap and see if it turns when you crank it over.if it dont turn your timing belt is broken if it does turn your main relay is bad wich is located under the drivers side dash.sometimes by tapping it with a screwdriver it will activate and will run but must be replace asap.Good Luck

Cranks but wont start


Engine Cranks But Will Not Start

For an engine to run, you need three things to happen inside the engine. Compression, fuel and ignition, without any one of these components the engine will not run.
Basic Checks:

A. Test Fuses. Test both under hood power distribution center and the fuse panel under dash. This is done with a test light tool. The test light should illuminate on both sides of the fuse, if not the fuse has failed and needs to be replaced.
B. Testing Fuel Pressure Test for proper fuel pressure with a test gauge on the fuel rail, most throttle body injection cars (TBI) are between 13 psi and 17 psi. and most (DPI) direct port inject systems are between 40 psi and 55 psi. If no or little fuel pressure is observed and there is 12 volt power present the fuel pump, the fuel pump needs replacing.
C. Checking Timing Belt Test for compression by removing a spark plug and insert a compression gauge. Crank the engine over about 5 seconds the gauge should read between 125 psi and 165 psi, if no compression is observed remove front engine cover to inspect timing belt or chain. Crank engine to observe cam rotation, if the cam does not rotate the timing belt or chain has failed. (note: if the timing belt drives the water pump it is best to replace the water pump at this time)
D. Test for Injector Pulse Remove injector connector to insert injector test light (node) or volt meter. Observe light flash or gauge pulse while cranking. If light/voltmeter doesn't respond, an ignition distributor/crank angle sensor (CKS) or an ignition module is most likely your problem.
E. Test for Ignition Spark Remove spark plug wire, insert an extra spark plug into end of wire, rest spark plug next to a ground source then crank engine. You should observe a blue spark between the spark plug gap and ground source. If no spark is observed, an ignition coil, ignition rotor or spark plug wires might have failed. (always keep hands away from engine when cranking)
