Crank but no start after timing and water pump strong gas smell from plenum on right side i believe


double check your timing setup again. http://ww2.justanswer.com/uploads/KALAMYKID/2011-01-31_054854_timing_marks.jpg

They have to be dead on. it sounds to me that its putting in fuel after the spark.which also makes me think timing. Putting the belt on counterclockwise is important too.

Maybe have someone crank it with a plug out and see if the plug sparks when the piston is right past TDC. Unplug the fuel injector or unscrew it and hang it in an empty bottle to make sure its spraying fuel at the right time.

One of those is out of sync from what youre describing.

This could be a bad connection at the crankshaft sensor. Check your TPS switch too.

Bro,
This is a model which should get a good attention on all of its parts. You should have a detailed idea on your car's parts, its condition, workability,etc.
So firstly try to figure out any kind of leakages from crank parts, gear/clutch assembly. This is easy to find when the car is parked for long time.
Then look out for any broken pipes, tubes, seals, cracks.
Any oil leakage into combustion chamber, plugs, etc.
Check plugs by touching the car body while cranking!!
Then check the distributor cables and the distributor.
I think this all about your Power lines, fuel pumps.
So please try and rate it!!!

Crank no start ,got fuel got spark, when trying to start spark plugs get wet ,changed plug pinched fuel line shut try srarting flud wont start???


You pinched the fuel line????
If you crank for too long to start the car, the engine will "flood", this is why the plug was wet. It had too much gas and wouldn't start.
Pull out ALL plugs and dry them off.
Install them.
HOLD your gas pedal to the floor and crank.
This will stop gas from entering the engine.
you need to get that extra gas out beofre it will start.
If you have so much gas in there you can do damage to your engine!!
Now after a few crnaking attempts with your foot to the floor, take your foot of the gas pedal and try to start it again.
But remember if it doesn't start in 3 tries, you need to do the pedal to the floor once or twice to remove the excess gas.
When you crank the car to start it sprays gas into the engine, even if it won't start. So it very easy to "flood" the engine, and then you'll have a hard time to get it going!

Moved my rx8 yesterday.i got ack in it this


verify condition by spraying some starter fuel in it.it should start and die if its a fuel problem.
if it still does nothing start checking any and all fuses.if all the fuses are good take out a spark plug and verify no spark.
if no spark check the ignition module.
it might be able to have it checked at autozone for free.but you will have to remove it.

Takes a long time to start,when started it putts.


distributer cap and button are weak it sounds like
put the screw driver in the spark plug boot. close to a ground
make sure its not aluminum.
turn the engine over when its somewhat dark
look for the intensity of the spark.
if the sparks bright then its strong IE if the sparks not strong means its the coil that needs to be replaced.or the wires
More then likely its the cap button or plug wires..
if there is any cracks in the wires they will leak power out.. making it use more gas to make it run.
