Engine will not turn over. It will crank but

Engine will not turn over. It will crank but sputters as if not getting fuel. Replaced fuel pump/filter, checked presure (45psi), checked spark, checked wires. Somebody suggested the CMS...what are the odds this would be the cause?

Sounds like a problem I had on a 99 ford ranger. I had fuel, spark and all the essentials needed for it to start but it wouldnt, but it cranked over good. It turned out to be the crank shaft sensor. Mine just had moisture in it so I shot it with wd-40 (displaces moisture) and its running today.

how about the fuel filter. I didn't see this on your list and it should be done every 20000km and the air filter. I think its a fuel filter. not the pump. could be the coils but I would start cheap and change fuel filter first. when the pump is cold it pumps with more psi to blow passed the clooged filter after warm it is weaker and has a hard time pushing through the clog

Engine stalls when turning left hand corners.


turn left, sputter, sputter, pop! sputter, sputter..............vvveeerrrooommm !? WTF? Crazy 91 Honda CRX just became a death car tryin to get through an intersection. Checked all my wires and ended up in the gas tank tryin to put the fuel pump back together. POS pump is in the left side of the tank!? So if you got a few miles on it the fuel pump screen can fall off. Turn left and the last 1/8th of a tank goes to the right leaving a 3/4 ton chevy in your girlfrends lap...well almost. I still got the CRX, the girl got droped off at the car wash cuz she smelled like poo.

My car wont stay started when im trying to crank the engine?


If it turns over and almost seems to start I would inspect the timing belt by removing the top cover. It may need to be replaced due to damage or from becoming stretched and/or loose. Next I would check the fuel pump/fuel pump relay. If it will run for a few seconds then sputter and die, try replacing the fuel filter.

Vehicle won't get feul to crank. we replaced fuel


Of course you will need to check to see if the fuel pump is actually pumping, or damaged. I suggest that you remove the fuel filler cap, then have someone turn the ignition switch on while you listen through the fuel fill inlet to see if you hear the pump turn on for a few seconds then off. If you're hearing nothing and have no fuel, either the vehicle is not telling the pump to turn on, (verify voltage at the pump electric connection) or the pump is bad.

Generally, when you turn the ignition on, you should hear the pump for a second or two as it builds pressure, after replacing the fuel filter, you may need to do this several times to get pressure to the injectors, and to do that, just cycle the switch to on, then off, in 4 or 5 second intervals. The pump if working, will build pressure eventually allowing the vehicle to start. No need to crank, until you have fuel pressure, Just to "ON", then "OFF" several times.

I hope that you took the time to put some fuel injector cleaner (1/2 filled w/Gumout) into your new fuel filter when replacing it, it's a cheap fuel injector/fuel system cleaning method I've used for years when replacing fuel filters. It can cause a sputter or two initially, but does a good job.

good luck

While idling it began to sputter and died. It is


Replace the fuel filter. Have someone listen at the gas cap while you turn the ignition on without starting the engine. They should hear the fuel pump for a few seconds. If you hear nothing then either the fuel pump is bad, fuse is blown, or the fuel pump relay is bad. If you hear the pump it still may be defective and weak. A fuel pressure test will verify this.
