Dear Cranks But No Cough.........this sure sounds to me like ya have a timing issue.....or lack thereof....these vehicles have timing belts....and unfortuneately also called interference motors.....meaning when the tbelt fails if there are a couple open valves then the piston decides to eat them if luck is not on your side......the easiest thing you can do to tell is go to the rightfront side of the car and pull back your timing cover so you can peek in there at your tbelt.....have someone crank the vehicle over.....if yout camshaft is moving then your belt is still attached....if it's not.......then it's time to get out your pocketbook....that means ya blew a belt.......that a little intrusive of a repair...but not to bad tho......please get back to me.....HOPE I HELPED!!!!!

Nissan almera 2002 was running fine stood over night now wont start

Does it crank over If no, then try jumping it from another car.
If yes it cranks but doesn't fire up, try spraying a small squirt of starting fluid into the air intake. If it fires up then dies it is a fuel problem. Very likely low on fuel or fuel pump circuit.
If it cranks but doesn't start with starting fluid there is a problem in the ignition-spark system.

Hi I have a 99 c180 and was running fine yesterday , but I went out to start this morning and it just keeps winding over and wont start , , doesnt even cough , just winds over I cant find any eng fus

Sounds like fuel pump not working,have someone crank it for you,take off gas cap and listen . Can you hear pump while cranking? If not bang on bottom of fuel tank while cranking, if it starts you will need a fuel pump if not best check pressure and power to pump

I have a ej20 engine 1989 legacy rs its cranking but not firing

Either gas or spark is likely lost, so that's where to start looking. I expect you have central point fuel injection-the Legacy was not available in the US until 1990, and it had a 2.2L engine. At any rate, spray a shot or two of starting fluid in the throttle body intake. If the engine coughs to life and tries to start, you know that it wasn't getting gas. Check the fuel pump circuit, maybe your pump has failed.
If the starting fluid has no effect, check for spark on a plug wire with the engine cranking. If no spark, the ignition circuit will have to be diagnosed.

1998 vw passat v6 wouldn't kick over. Diagnostic tool pointed to camshaft sensor. Replaced it and mechanic tested electrics and replaced plugs. Battery was going flat so used jumper leads and still no go....

It's possible it may be that your timing belt slipped I have replaced a couple in VW's when they get older this may be why you received the code for the camshaft sensor as they are really working together only way to tell is to look at position of your rotor in the distributor to see if it is lined up exactly on the firing order if it is the belt its a very time consuming job and does take some mechanical knowledge it is not really a job for a novice and if it is the belt you will see that there are several to choose from do not buy the cheapest belt as you will have the same problem very quickly as they tend to stretch more than the better belts you don't have to buy VW parts but a name brand also you may have the firing order wrong on the plugs if everything was replaced check to see your firing order and match it up with the wires to the right cylinders

92 GMC sonoma 2.5L 4cylinder - replaced plugs,wires,fuel filter on the rail,checked fuel pump plenty of fuel. Wants to crank but doesnt seem like its getting fuel. used starting fluid still would fire off....

How about no spark or did you screw up the firing order when you replaced the plug wires? It is easy to do.Typically there are 2 things to get an engine to fire that's fuel and spark. other things will make it run bad but not even a short rumble when you use starting fluid, there is no ignition. Get a spark test tool from the auto parts store. Check the firing order and be sure your wires are in the correct order.

Expedition won't start or even act like it wants to. Just cranks and cranks. I feel it might be fuel pump.

easy way to test for it being air filter box spray alittle starter fluid.then try starting if it runs or fires over its fuel related.if not then its sensor or fuse related.hope that helps.make sure the fluid is ma safe.meaning mass airflow sensor some starter fluids will mess them up.
