Check your distributor cap and rotor, your coil pack, and your spark plugs. There are tools that you can borrow from Kragen/Checkers to see if there is any power getting to the spark plugs. If your spark plugs are fine as well, it might not be your spark. You might have a buildup in your exhaust, try disconnecting the exhaust right behind your headers and starting her up again.

Like to locate fuel switch engine turns not getting gas


Oh, Hi David it's either fuel or spark... To check for spark just pull a spark plug lead off a spark plug and plug the spark plug lead onto a SPARE spark plug, Now earth it to the CLEAN motor or body (make sure the spark plug is touching metal) Turn the motor over using the ignition, If the spark plug doesn't spark then it could be coil... If it's sparking then you have a fuel problem, The fuel pump is usually in the fuel tank BUT I have no idea about the year, make or model number your car is....CHEERS..

1983 Capri RS WONT START it is getting spark to the plugs and fuel turns over fine just wont start


Points or electronic ignition? Corroborator, or fuel injection? Was the car sitting idol for a long period of time, say, 6 months to more than 1 year? With a car that old, I would start with replacing spark plug and ignition wiring. Have you checked the spark plugs? Make sure they're cleaned and gaped. If corroded, replace them.

I have no spark in the coilpack and n spark in the spark plug wire as well


A failed crank sensor can prevent your car from getting a spark.
When cranking the car's computer looks for a signal from the crankshaft indicating the crankshaft is turning to enable spark and fuel. A timing belt that has broken in some cars can cause no fuel and no spark since the crankshaft position sensor gets no signal that the overhead camshaft is turning.

Mitsubishi outlander 2006 my car turn but not


The 3 factors here are Fuel,Timing or Spark failing this its electrical. Follow fuel line from clear plastic fuel filter to engine and disconnect and turn key and see if fuel is spurting out, if so there is fuel to throttle body/efi system. Timing is not likely to be an issue if it ran fine when stored. Spark can be tested by taking a spark plug lead off a spark plug and putting a screw driver in it and sitting it a couple of mm of the engine block and having someone turn the key, spark should jump across between the screw drivwer and the engine block. It has to be very very close but not touching. Spark wont jump more than say 5mm.

Turns over but won;t start


Hello,well there are only 2 things that make any engine run...fuel and spark.. #1. to check if your getting spark you want to use a pair of pliers with rubber grips( if not you will get shocked ) then pull one of the spark plug wires off the plug (and if you have an old spark plug laying around you can put it on that wire turn engine over and see if you get a spark.) and holding it a 1/4" inch away from plug(or any metal surface of frame) have someone else turn engine over and see if your getting any spark?( its easier to see spark at night.) #2. if you have spark,then its in the fuel system.( will be your fuel pump,fuel pump relay,clogged fuel filter,ect.) if you dont have spark,it will more than likely be your ignition coil... good luck...yz-maniac.

Car turns over but won't crank. spark plugs are


Turning over and cranking are often the same thing, so Im not sure what your asking... Do you mean the car turns over but wont fire, or start? If thats the case and as you say the plugs are getting spark, then your problem is gonna be the fuel pump 99% of the time... Try this little trick, have a friend hit the fuel tank from under the car with a NON metalic hammer (ie a rubber or wooden mallet or chunk of solid wood etc) while your trying to start the engine. If the car fires up, then dont risk doing that trick again as it probably wont work twice, and get it to your mechanic to get a new fuel pump installed. If it doesnt work, (it really is a 50/50 thing) then get it towed and have the fuel pump changed as its still probably the problem...

Audi 100s 1993 cranks doesn,t start, turns over no start. when it starts runs rough and stalls.


could very well be a faulty sensor, leaky vaccum hose, bad coil packs, needing of new fuel filter, spark plugs, wires.

Have you checked your fuel pressure to make sure it is good. You can do this with fuel pressure tester on the fuel rail.

Also check every cylinder for spark
If you don't have any spark, or very weak spark, you could have bad coil pack, module, or crank sensor.

You can remove one plug at a time, and place it back on plug wire, place it on top of engine block, have someone else turn motor over well you observe to see if there is spark.

Do you have a service or check engine light on? If so, I would have the engine codes read to pinpoint exact problem area.

Let me know if you have any questions or need further help
