If you have checked for spark at plugs and its there,then that eliminates any cam or crank sensors,your fuel you will need to know what pressure you have by checking it at the reed valve on the fuel rail,you will need to see at least 50psi.

if the car has been sitting up for a while like months or a year or so , its possible that the fuel pump stuck, the gas now a days is very bad about turning into lacqure like substance an that could be the problem? you need to check fuel preasure, autozone will loan you the tool to check it with, just leave deposite, at least you can rule out that much, also check the fuel pump relay could be sticking good luk

SOURCE: 4 cyc. engine cranks but dont start, have spark at

Did you check for vacuum leaks at the intake? It might be choking on too much air. The intake manifold gasket could possibly have a large leak too. Good luck.

Welcome to Fixya

You might need to check the ignition module or the crank sensor.The module is under the coil pack. Please check this link on how to test the module. If test is ok then you might need to replace the crank sensor. This two parts usually cause no spark to the car.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Car wont start

could be few different problems first u need to check for fuel pressure and spark
hook a fuel pressure gauge up and see if ur getting any fuel pressure if you have no fuel pressure u either have bad pump or out of gas (don't laugh i had cars come in shop for a no start that where just out gas)
if u have fuel pressure
then check for spark
take one spark plug wire of a spark plug and hold wire about 1/4 inch away from either the spark plug or engine block if u see a spark or hear one
if you have no spark your looking at a few different possibles Bad coil, ignition module, crank sensor, etc
if you have fuel pressure and spark but still no start u need to check for injector pluse (basically computer telling fuel injectors to open)
but now i think I'm getting over your head let me know if this helps and i try to walk u threw other things if this dont help

hi martin i am shannon . you will first need to determan if the problem is fuel or spark related . for fuel just add 1 oz of gas into the intake through the throttle. you will need to remove the big black hose at the throttle . just pour the fuel in. if it starts right up then you have a fuel issue most likely a bad fuel pressure regulator. too test the spark i would get a spark tester . connect it to one of the plug or coil wires. set it to 25.0000 volts then have some one turn the engine over while you which for spark. if you get no spark you may have a bad crank angle sensor. hear is a spark tester i use . this one is at Autozone.

Car won't start

I had the same problem it was the fuel pump itself. Have it pressure line tested, if it is lower then 60 psi then its bad. Mine was reading 55psi and would not start my blazer. If i sprayed starter fluid in the throttle body vrrrm start right up. This is because (what I was told) it is a high pressure furl system. also make sure the line you replaced is installed right and is right line

My 93 honda prelude dont start i did a full overhaul but i can get it to start timing is right so i dont know wat to do next

Timing is right, but the firing order is incorrect then it could not start. Make sure connection at the spark plug is in the firing order. Let get back to the basic: need spark and fuel. After several cranking, take plug # 1 out to see if it wet. If it is wet then you have fuel. If it is dry then you don't have fuel. Start to find out what is the root cause for fuel not coming. Now touch the spark plug to the engine chassis and have a helper to start engine. If there is spark strong then you have spark. If no spark then you know what to do: find the root cause of the problem. If you have spark and fuel then need to recheck timing by Top Dead Center: Piston #1 is up, mark at camshaft and 0 mark at crankshaft all line up together while intake and exhaust valve closed. Good luck.

I have hyundai accent 2003. While driving the engine died. Checked fuses,ignition,fuel pump(don't know if the pressure is right),starter is starting ok.

#1. Scan for trouble codes. If any, record them and let us know which ones they are.
#2. Connect a fuel gauge to the fuel delivery line at the engine... try to start the engine while monitoring fuel pressure... if there is fuel pressure (approx 35 to 50 lbs), the problem is elsewhere.
If no fuel pressure, check fuel pump relay, fuse, wiring to fuel pump connector (power & ground - use 12volt test light). If power & ground are present, problem is the pump (fuel filter is attached to the fuel pump inside the tank).
#3. Check injectors for injector pulse, check ignition coils for spark to spark plugs.

Turns over but wont start

If you don't hear it then it is probably not working.  One way you can check is to take a fuel line apart and see if fuel comes out when you turn the key.  The best place to do that is at the fuel filter.  Just make sure you have a small cup to catch the fuel if it comes out.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Wont start it turns over but wont stay started

check the fuel pressure....there is a valve near the fuel pressure regulator that u can connect a fuel pressure guage to.under the hood on the right in the area of the brake master cylinder( right upper corner...( a line with a threaded valve)..check the reading and make sure they are in specs, i dont know the specs off hand but a service manual will help..if the pressure isnt in spec, replace the fuel pressure regulator..

Car wont start

Fuel delivery must be confirmed with a fuel pressure gauge on this vehicle. Disconnecting the fuel line and cranking the engine to see fuel shooting out does not confirm pressure, it only confirms fuel delivery. Remember you need both fuel delivery and pressure. On this vehicle if the psi is off by just one number that's enough to keep it from starting. Also replacing the coil and rotor (as you stated) does not confirm that spark is reaching the plugs. Confirm that both spark and adequate fuel pressure are reaching ALL the spark plugs.
