I'm not a ford guy, but I know fords have a fuel switch that trips off when you get into an accident so you don't pump gas into a fire under the hood, but they are known for tripping for no stupid reason. Your owners manual should tell you where it is and at should just be a pushbutton reset. Good luck

Car wont start


gas light normally means no fuel.. must add at least 1/4 tank to the vehicle..may have frozen lines or air in them..put gas in it..turn the key on and off without cranking the engine about 6-8 times to activate the fuel pump ..you should hear the pump come on for about 2-3 seconds..then try to start.. if it wont start.. need to bleed air out by opening fuel line near the top of the engine by the tbi unit..once all gas comes out.. reconnect it and try to start...dont let get below 1/4 tank in cold weather...forms ice in the tank..

My lexus is250 would not turn on


Hi there:
You will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing...
- Spark
- Fuel
- Compression

All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.

Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

2006 cobalt.replaed starter relay fuse all lights come on dash ect. fuel going to fuel pump but wont crank over


Are you positive the battery is good? Did you try to jump it ? Make sure all cables are clean and tight. When you say "won't crank over" do you mean the engine doesn't turn at all? If not, I don't know why you think the fuel pump would be the culprit. If it cranks and doesn't start, I don't know why you replaced the starter.

Disconnecting the battery doesn't reset the light. You need a scan tool for that unless you get lucky and fix the problem and go through enough cycles for it to go out on it's own.

Take it to Autozone or Advance or somewhere and have them read the codes. They do it for free for you. (They are hoping you will buy parts there) They can reset the light as well.

Where is the carburetor on my 93 mercury topaz?


There isn't a carberator on your 93 mercury topaz. It is new enough to have electronic fuel injection (EFI).
When you say it wont crank, does that mean the starter wont turn the engined over? Or do you mean it wont start?
If the starter turns the engine and it wont start here's a trick that might work. Turn the ignition key to on but don't engage starter. Listen for a buzzing sound coming from underneath the vehicle near gas trank. The buzzing sound is the fuel pump pumping up pressure. The buzzing sound might last only one to two seconds. Then turn ignition key off and turn it on again NOT engaging the starter several more times. This will help prime the fuel up to the engine. After you've done this several times, the engine should start. Lt me know if I was any help.

Gmc yukon will not start. tested alternator, battery and starter.


I take your question as the engine cranks, but does not fire up, 1st listen at the gas tank with gas cap off, is the fuel pump running for 3 seconds then stops when the key is turned on (not to start)?? If it is, check the fuel pressure at the motor to see if it's 52 lbs. If this is OK, then it's probably the crankshaft sensor behind the starter. When this sensor fails it will shut off the fuel pump. Also see if you have a Check Engine light, with a scan code reader, because without the engine running the Service Engine light will not work correctly. It should have a code to say what the error is, good luck. Do not disconnect the battery, it will reset the error code. I had that same problem and it was the crankshaft sensor, and it's not easy to change (starter has to come out as the oil dip stick). About $ 50.00 if you do it.

Wont start it cranks but nothing happens.wont turn over. put a new what you would call distributor. still nothing.


If the Starter isn't turning the engine over, but you hear a clicking sound, you may have a bad Starter.
If the Starter is turning the engine over, but you are getting no Spark, you may have a failed Camshaft or Crankshaft Position Sensor, or your Timing Belt may have jumped or broken(common on the neons).
If the Starter is turning the engine over, but you are getting Spark, you may have a failed fuel pump, fuel pump relay, or fuel pressure regulator.

Before you start replacing sensor, double check the Timing belt to ensure it hasn't broken or jumped, and check to see if you are getting a spark or not.

Im getting spark for the plugs and im getting fuel. i even put starter fluid in the intake and gas but it wont start it just turns over and nothing


A 1999 GMC Yukon has a fuel-injected engine. They are known for the fuel injector lines inside the intake plenum to break and flood the engine. If you are pouring starter fluid and gas in the intake you are only making it worse. replace the injector assembly with the "new improved" injector assembly and replace the plugs, then it will probably start.

This subject is covered by GM Technical Service Bulletin No.: 00-06-04-003B

See GM Parts List below. This replacement Injector assembly is now also available in the aftermarket.

Nate, I'm not sure what you mean when you say,"I can get it to whine but not turn over. The starter is trying to get it to turn, but I don't think it is getting any gas".

Separate and aprt from not getting any gas is the fact( if I understande you correctly) that the motor is not being cranked by the starter motor. You say "it whines". You are referring to the starter motor, right? the starter motor should not "whine". If this is what's happening by guess is the Bendix spring in the starter motor is broken. The bendix spring is a heavy spring that is mounter on s worm gear in the starter motor. When you go to start the motor by turning the key the starter motor turn and the spring travels down this worm gear and engages tthe geared flywheel and cranks the engine. As soon as the engine starts the flywheel is now turning the bendix spring faster that the starter motor and the spring kicks back to its original position. If the spring is broken it never engages the flywheel and the engine wont crank.
The fact that you say the starter "whines" is what I would expect you to hear if the starter is at fault.

As far as no fuel flow there are 2 ifs: if you have an electric fuel pump, then there is a problem in the fuel flow. If you do not have a electric pump then the fuel pump runs off of the engines motion and since the engine is not cranking, the pump is not pumping and the fuel is not flowing.

Anything else you can add before we conclude that the starter has to come off?
