2002ford tausar wont spark injectors for it to start


when the computer sees no ignition spark going to the spark plugs, it shuts down the fuel system. it wont keep sending fuel and injecting it because the cylinders would have too much raw gas accumulating. the gas would end up in the oil. very bad. so first, see if you have spark at a plug wire. if there is, inspect the plugs, if theres not, get a code reader and do things right. dont unplug anything else. read the codes in the memory. write them down. clear the memory. service the codes that indicate loss of ignition first.
this car may have been in LOS (limited operating strategy ) till the plugs fouled. the LOS is caused by system faults that required correction for too long. now, with new plugs, and the memory erased, you can run codes again to see whats at fault when you try to start. if theres no spark sent to the plugs at that point, then the pinpoint test is valid to run for loss of spark. dont forget to change the oil !!! report your findings or discuss it with your tech at the ford dealer. so many erroneous tests, codes and confusers may come up that he runs your vin and finds tsb info you may need to clear this up.
after the memory has been cleared you could have fewer codes, one code or no codes. now put a test light on an injector to verify pcm signals are going to the injectors. dont replace parts that dont fail pinpoint tests

2002 dodge grand caravan won't start


Hello, Just by my experience with my 91 dodge grand caravan, I would start checking 3 things. First, did you replace spark plug wires to the correct location(Plugs 1, 3 and 5 on the back, Plugs 2, 4 and 6 on the front,That's all starting from the Passenger's side.) 2nd, do your dash lights and electronics turn on when it turns over? If not, try jumping it and 3rd if engine finally runs after that and then shuts off, then your alternator will be next to check however if engine dosen't start running from trying to jump it then the problem is more than likely your alternator. Though make sure you have plugged in all plugins that you might of unplugged like the one that plugs into your DIS coil pack and all vacuum hoses are connecting. Hope this helps and good luck!

My 1999 expedition wont start. your guy said it may be the pump, the the fuel shut off switch then the relay. not any of the above. whats the problem?


ok first check for fire at spark plugs if there is no fire then your problem could a sensor could be a crank or cam sensor or disconnected wire, check all your fuses, inside engine compart. and (inside the car) you need 3 elements for the engine to run, fuel,air and fire, if one of those is not present then your car wont start, it will turn over but wont run.

2002 blazer crank but wont start


2 things that you have to check on no starts every time. Spark at spark plug and fuel. Turn key to run position and listen at gas tank for fuel pump to run you should hear a whining noise. This will only happen for 3 to 4 seconds then it will shut off until engine starts. You can turn key off then to run every 3 to 4 to listen for fuel pump. You may hear the relay click off in engine area even if pump does not run. Fuel pump failure is pretty common. If pump is running pull spark plug out or put a spare plug into spark plug wire and have someone crank engine set plug on engine and watch for spark. This will give you a starting point. Hope it helps.

93 volvo 850 glt changed the fuel pump now car wont start. Engine cranks, fuel pump working, fuel getting to the motor but it wont start. The car had trouble starting sometimes so i changed the fuel...


Check your fuel pressure to ensure proper pressure to the block, also did you replace the fuel filter.

On a side note: 3 things a automobile needs to run

AIR-make sure you have a clean air filter and your MAF (mass air flow sensor is plugged in) if you pulled your breather to innspect anything, there is a possibility that it came unplugged or you unpluged it and forgot to hook it back up, a car wont start without it being plugged in if equiped

SPARK-Make sure your car has juice to the plugs, if the plug doesnt fire the car wont run, if you have to pull each plug and ground them to the engine block to see if they arch. If not trace the problem down (if you changed the fuel pump you have some mechanical skill and should be able to troubleshoot a spark issue)

FUEL-Check for proper pressure, dirty fuel filter(s) and if your system has a return line, make sure your hoses didnt get crossed cause this will damage the engine and regulator.

Hope this helps Thanks for using Fixya.com

sounds to me like water may have possibly gotten into the engine spark plug areas and are preventing the engine from sparking.
