Here are a few things to check:fuel not reaching injectors, faulty ignition coil, dirty or clogged injectors, I would check to see if it is getting spark and fuel.

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu that wont start. All of the lights on the dash come on and when they settle.. only the battery and the check engine light are on. It has a full tank of gas and full oil and...

When you turn the key to the start position does the starter spin the engine ? The engine cranks no start ! Or nothing happens when you the key to start position ? no crank no start ? Is the anti-theft light lit on the instrument cluster (SECURITY) ? If the starter spins the engine does spin slow or normally ? Is there spark , fuel pressure ? Testing these thing's would be the place to start if the engine spins ! Videos on youtube showing how !

1997 Plymouth Breeze turns over but wont start changed coil, camshaft sensor, crank sensor, fuel pump. Help Please We really need this car!

Was one part that got replaced even tested &
failed a test?

There are four parts you mentioned
I would bet none were bad

Now how does someone guess without the car
& no testing of your vehicle,how is that possible?

Have you checked for spark,injector pulse,fuel pressure,
or compression??

Have you looked to see if the timing belt is on or the cams
even turn?

Sounds like lack of experience & I don't mean to be hurtful,
but when you throw parts at something, you need to learn how
things work & how to test a vehicle

My 2005 nissian altima wont start, it turns over good and the fuel pump is good, but wont start...

Free spinning or does it sound like its trying to start? If its free spinning, timing chain possible. If its trying to start, look into the ignition system including crank and cam sensors. You will need a scan tool that read live data. Codes on the PCM or no?

Help with my 98 camaro

hi, are you saying when you turn the key to start the car nothing happens and it dont even turn the engine over so it can try to start if you mean this then you need to start thinking of starter motor problems and replace if needed.

now if your engine is turning over but it wont fire up then this could be crankshaft sensor, faulty ecu, faulty coil, it could be a number of things you could throw money at it and not find the fault your best bet would be a diagnostic check done to see what codes where thrown up as having errors this would then give you the exact fault and would save you wasting money on parts you may not need

Car will not start change out camshaft sen, crank

maybe a dicky cam sensor even if new! make sure the cam sensor is aligned correctly as if its out even a small amount the car will not run. check it is in place correctly.

Is the car trying to start? or are you getting nothing when turning the key?

Wont start

I'm assuming the engine is cranking over while turning the key and wont start. from this assumsion it possible the cam sensor on the timing chain is broken. or no fuel pressure. to test for fuel pressure, turn the igntion key on, locate the fuel line & port on the fuel line, remove the cap & depress the small screader valve by using a small pocket screwdriver, fuel should shoot out with a lot of pressure. no fuel shooting out most likey the fuel pump is bad. if this has good pressure the cam sensor is most likey the cause. to replace the sensor, you need to replace the timing chain.

I think my crank sensor or something is gone. engine wont fire, no spark coming from coil pack. new coilpack. How do I resolve?

May be I can help.Be sure to check all fuses,really good,before replacing parts.I can`t tell you how to check for problem,you have pretty much narrowed it down already,but replace the crank sensor first(least expensive) cause it is most likely the problem.Then really all you are left with is cam sensor,or control module.The car will most likely will run,and run good if the cam sensor is bad,but it will not start.If the car stopped running while engine was running,then the cam sensor most likely isn`t the problem,replace the control module.IIf the engine was not running,and you went to start it and it wouldn`t start,try a cam sensor.If I can help any more,let me know>>
