2.4 pt cruiser wont try to crank even with starting fluid its got good firing on all cylinders good suction at intake and fuel pumps getting fuel to motor have no way to tell how strong the fuel press


If a volatile starting fluid, typically ether, won't make it fire or even sound like it is trying to fire the problem is likely to be with the spark though if attempting to start continuously for some time hasn't caused the smell of petrol about the place and caused the spark plugs to show signs of wetness there probably isn't any injection taking place either.

In the absence of both spark and injection it could be an immobiliser problem or it could be one or both of the positional sensors (crankshaft or camshaft) or the connections or wiring or the ECU that has failed.
A code read might help.

I suggest spending some time checking the fuses first and then carry out a thorough visual inspection of all the associated pipes, wires and cables before moving on to a more in depth diagnosis.

Good luck!

Check to make sure you don't have a blown fuse/relay. Something is telling the coil not to fire. (Is the replacement coil new or used?) check your ground connections starting at the battery.

I got fire to my points on my 4 cylinder 1932 ford but not to my plugs what's wronghat wrong


Could be a bad coil. Check its resistance and compare to specs (find some real old mechanic to tell you what specs to expect, if you have to-lol). Also could be a bad high tension lead from coil to dist. cap-can also be checked for too much resistance.
Do the points open and close when engine is cranked? Are they set right-about 0.015 inches- or two matchbook covers placed together? If coil and high tension cable are good, and points are good and set right, the condensor that goes with the points may be bad-try a known good one-I'm assuming that old car has a condensor to trap the current when points open so no sparks at points occurs.
If everything checks out so far, maybe the distributor rotor is not making good contact to transfer the high voltage current from the coil cable to the spark plug wires.

Truck wont start after changing the spark plug and wires


It's already not start before you changed or after changed ?
If before. the timing belt or might be broken , burn fuel pump's fuse, injector's fuse or main engine relay.
If after. It's possible miss some wire that still not connect.

2001 gmc jimmie wont fire


Need to figure out whether it is fuel related or ignition related , what have you done so far? I would check fuel pressure to make sure you have 50-55psi ar rail with key turned on, then if that is good I would check codes in ecm to see if there are anything stored, then check ignition fuses and pull spark plug and see if it is actully firing. there are lots of possibilities, coolant sensor,fuel spider if a v-6,oil presure. Tell me what you have and have'nt done to it,did it just quit,was it shut off and won't restart,is it rolling over w/key, etc

FIRST GET A SPARK TESTER TO SEE IF YOU ARE GETTING SPARK AT SPARK PLUGS.IF NOT CHECK IGNITION MODULE FUSE.IF FUSE GOOD HAVE CAR HOOK UP TO SCANNER LOOK FOR IGNITION MODULE FAULT CRANKSHAFT SENSOR FAULT AND PCM FAULT.IF ALL LOOK GOOD SO FAR.CHECK TO SEE IF FUEL PUMP WORKING.CHECK PUMP FUEL PRESSURE IT SHOULD BE 41 - 47 PSI. IF NOT REPLACE FUEL FILTER STILL LOW REPLACE FUEL PUMP.IF FUEL PUMP NOT WORKING AT ALL CHECK FUEL PUMP FUSE AND RELAY.IF BOTH IS GOOD FUEL PUMP AT FAULT.BUT SCAN TO CHECK FOR PCM FAULT CODES IT CONTROL SPARK AND FUEL SYSTEM.MAKE SURE SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES IS GOOD. ALSO CHECK FUEL INJECTORS FUSE ALSO.

1992 acura legend change spark plugs,coil,and new battery.Now the spark plugs wont fire and i checked the relay its good.


Check out the induction coil fuse plus wiring if it has got damaged while replacing the plugs, coil, etc, since current is not reaching the plugs to initiate the firing .. sodeep

Tuck has spark wont fire


If you are getting spark all the way to the plugs, then you have not gone far enough. You need something to burn in the engine! You did not mention engine type or if injected or carbureted. A quick check can be done on either by simply squirting a small amount of starting fluid into airstream while cranking. If engine starts, then check for reason why no fuel condition. (best to do this after checking plugs for wet (flooding condition) or fouling from other source)
