The most common cause of no spark on 86 through 90 ranger V-6 is a bad ignition module. They aren't too hard to replace, but you need a special tool. The module is located on the distributor stem at the back of the engine. Its held on by two small screws that need to be taken off with a special tool. It can be bought at Advanced Auto for about $5, just called "Ford ignition module tool". If you have small enough hands you can probably even get the module replaced without taking the distributor out.

I have a 2003 Kia sedona ran out of igas now wont start the code I get say crank posistioning sensor will that cut or cause the fuel pump not to work cause I get no humming from it the code is p0335


No this does not affect the fuel pump. It will affect the spark though. Hit the gas tank in the center a few times. If it starts then replace the fuel pump. Unfortunetly pumps with a few yaers on them will die when ran out of gas. If it doesn't start pull one of the spark plug wires, insert a screwdriver and put it close to the engine. crank the engine and watch for a spark. if there is no spark then replace the crank shaft sensor. before you replace the fuel pump.

2000 Eclipse GT turns over but doesn't start. Fires once in a while but won't run. Had timing belt replaced.


Hi, if the car turn over, and it don't start. Then it is like the engine don't get fuel. Or bad a spark plugs. Most common problem is the fuel pump going bad.

It could also be a bad fuse, but a easy way to check if the fuel pump is ok is to have someone stand at the back of the car when you turn the ignition. The fuel pump should make a buzzing sound for a few seconds. And if you don't start the car right away the fuel pump will stop.

If you don't hear any buzzing from the fuel pump/fuel tank then you have a bad fuel pump............

My vw will crank but will not start running i


Hi,


If the engine cranks over normally when you attempt to start you car, but the engine does not start, the problem may be NO FUEL, NO SPARK or NO COMPRESSION. The engine needs adequate fuel pressure, a properly timed spark and normal compression to start.


1) To find why the engine won't start, remove the air inlet tube from the throttle body, push the throttle open and spray a small amount of aerosol starting fluid into the engine. Crank the engine. If it has spark and compression but NO FUEL, it will start and run a few seconds before dying. If it does NOT start, it probably has NO SPARK.

2)Another method to check for spark is to pull a spark plug wire off of a spark plug (if it has plug wires, coil-on-plug ignitions do not) and place the open end of the plug wire near a metal surface on the engine. Have a helper crank the engine while you watch for a spark. DO NOT hold the wire while doing this as it can shock you. If you see a spark, the problem is not spark, but most likely NO FUEL or NO COMPRESSION. If you do not see a spark, the problem is in the IGNITION CIRCUIT.

3)Proper fuel pressure is critical for fuel injected engines to start and run. You should hear the fuel pump inside the fuel tank buzz for a couple of seconds when the ignition is turned on (no buzz means the pump is not running and the engine is not getting fuel). You can smell the tailpipe for gasoline vapors after cranking the engine. If you smell gas, the problem is likely not fuel but NO SPARK. You can also remove the plastic cap and press the Schroeder valve test fitting on the fuel rail to see if there is any fuel pressure to the engine (not a very accurate test because fuel pressure must be at a certain level for the engine to start, for that you need a gauge). Even so, no fuel at the fuel rail would tell you fuel is not getting to the engine.


Thank you!!

Does it crank the engine ? If not take a look at the starter connections and the starter.Replace the starter if nessesary.
Ok, now that you got the most common problems out of the way, you should check for spark at the spark plugs. Remove a spark plug and attached to the wire. Get a good pair of rubber gloves and put the thread of the plug to ground and crank the engine. The spark plug should spark a bluish spark. If it has an orange spark the spark plug or wire may be bad. if it does spark fairly good.

Check the fuel pump. if it has an electric fuel pump you should hear it when you turn the switch to on. It is a whirring sound. if you can't hear it. the Pump is bad or the shutoff valve turned off the fuel system. Check it to see if the button is up. If it is then the valve clicked off. Press it down. If it is down and there is no fuel the fuel pump is bad.

If it is a mechanical pump, take off the hose to the carb if it does have one. crank the engine . It should pump gas right away.

If it does have spark or fuel to the sytem, then it is a sensor or other problem.You will have to get a trouble code for it. to narrow everything down.

Check the timing belt or chain to see if it is still good and tight. If it is not your timing belt or chain skipped or cut off. you will have to replace it.

I hope you can get some help from this info . good luck

If the starter fluid worked for a little and the engine died again, it may be some of your filters. Check the air and fuel filters and replace them if they are dirty or haven't been replaced in a long while. This is the most common reason a car won't start.

Another idea is the engine may have been flooded. If you have a fuel injected engine, don't pump the fuel when trying to start it. The fuel pump primes the engine all on it's own. If the engine is already flooded, push the fuel pedal all the way to the floor and hold it there while you try to start the engine. This bypasses the priming and opens the air to blast any unburned fuel out of the cylinders.

Check to make sure you are getting spark with an inline spark tester (at auto parts stores) and if not try replacing (in order) the spark plugs, wires and (depending on your engine) the magneto's or distributor cap. Ask the auto parts store if they can look up if you have a distributor-less ignition or if you have a distributor.

So, first the filters (air and any fuel [there may be more than 1]) then check for spark and replace the spark plugs, wires, and magneto/distributor cap.

I hope this helps and good luck! Don't forget to rate! Thank you!
