  1. Coil/Coil pack
  2. Camshaft sensor
  3. Ignition Control Module in ECU
Because if it were the immobilizer activating and cutting engine start maybe from a bug in program, you shouldn't have both fuel and spark preventing internal damage. That is how anti-theft works.

What are the symptoms of a starter going bad in a 2001 hyundai sonata


If your engine turns over, its not your starter, so im not going to include the location for now. If it turns over, but don't start up, then its either an igniton or fuel problem. First thing I would do is have the fuel pressure checked. If the pressure is ok, then move on to the igniton system. If you don't want to have the pressure checked, or if the pressure tests low, you will have to spend the money and buy a new fuel filter, and/or fuel pump relay, and/or fuel pump. Igniton system consists of the coil, ignition module, sparkplugs, plug wires, distrubter cap and rotor button (if your car has one, as some may not).

Got fuel and spark but it wont start


If it is the 4 cyl engine, have you checked to see if the timing belt is ok and the engine has compression ?
If it has compression, and the plugs are wet, they could be fuel fouled.
I would try a new set of plugs, check the fuel pressure to make sure it is within spec, and check all plugs for spark.

My '97 ford taurus isnt kicking over while tryn to start it up


Anything done to car, or happened recently that might affect this?
If starter fluid doesn't work, and starter is cranking normally (too fast may point to a timing belt broke, too slow may mean battery run down and not producing sufficient spark), there's still a problem in your ignition. Pull a sparkplug or two. After cranking a little they should be wet with gas. Check for compression while a plug is out: hold your finger over plug hole when cranking. You should feel pressure buildup and release over and over as long as cranking.
A properly timed engine needs spark, fuel, and compression to start. Keep reviewing your procedure. Something is not right.
You may want to have the computer scanned for possible trouble codes. Check plug wires for proper routing. Were plugs gapped right?

or you getting the right fuel pressure? check fluid filter, check pressure regulator, check spark plugs to see if they are soaking wet if they or wet take them all out and pull fuel pump relay out turn engine over and blow all gas out the plug holes. install plugs and relay and try start again , check engine compression, check coolant senor ,check cam sensor

Hi We have a few q's about a Chrysler PT cruiser. The engine ran out of gasoline and after refuelling the engine will not start again. The spark plug is ok and the sparkplug is getting fuel. But the car...


Are you sure it ran out of gas? Check fuel pressure. these are famous for breaking the timing belt. Does it sound normal when cranking? If not, check and make sure the cam is turning, if not. you have a broken timing belt and bent valves.

Driving about 65-70 truck dead will crank but not start. Any ideas?


Does the fuel pump run when the key is first turned? Should hear a buzzing/whining from under the bed of the truck. If not, check fuse and relay then check the fuel pump itself. If okay move to next.

Check all other fuel, ignition, pcm/ecm/ecu fuses. If no problems, then on to next.

Crank the truck over for a bit, then pull the spark plugs immediately, check for gas smell/wet sparkplugs.
- If wet, check for spark by cranking truck over with one plug out of engine attached to plug wire, with end of plug grounded against engine (careful not to get a shock when holding the plug).
- If dry, verify injectors are clicking when cranking (hold long screwdriver against injector body, and place ear against screwdriver while someone cranks over the engine). If clicking, check fuel pressure at rail. If not clicking, check ECU connections.

Last time I drove the car it started idling very


Just a guess but if you don't have an igniton problem, it may be a bad fuel pressure regulator. If the regulator diaphram fails, the engine will pull raw fuel through the vacuum line that goes to it. Also if it fails to bypass, excessive fuel pressure will flood the engine. Check the rail pressure to spec.

Galant Special Edition 1994 Motor does not start


this maybe caused by no fuel or faulty fuel pump, ignition coil, wire and plug crank position sensor. first check for spark by removing on spark plug wire and put a spark plug in the spark plug wire boot, donot touch the plug only the boot have someone crank the car over. if you see spark, that part of the ignition is good. if not, check the coil resistance if should 40 to 80 ohm with a volt meter pf not replace. if ok, but no spark check the igniton control madule make sure the coil and module are receiving current. if not check the fuse that feels them. if it is ok, check distributor cap and rotor. if rotor and cap are fine, check for fuel at either the fuel filter, the fuel return line or removing some spark plug and see if they are wet. if there is no fuel check the fuel pump and the fuse and relay that control the pump. if there is fuel with high pressure but there is no spark, check the crank sensor for signal with a volt meter while cranking the vehicle

1995 blazer was running rough, now not starting


if you believe some one put water or bad gas in your tank, then you will have to drain the tank. however, to know if you have water in your gas, first disconnect fuel return line or the line that goes in to the fuel pressure regulator put some fuel in a clear glass and let it sit for 15min.if you see white cloud at the bottom of the glass or water. drain the tank. if not check for spark by removing one spark plug wire and spark plug. place the spark plug in the spark plug wire boot and touch it on the metal part of the car. do not touch the spark plug itself only the booth with the plug in the boot. have some one crank the car over. if you see spark, the spark part is ok. but if no spark, check the coil with a volt meter it should be 3 to 8 ohm if not replace the coil. if ok, check for fuel by removing one spark plug or two and see if they are wet,if wet pump is ok. if not check the fuel pump relay and fuse. if fuse is blown replace. check relay with a volt meter. resistance of the relay should be between 40 to 80 ohm. not mega ohm,if mega ohm, replace. if not , listen to the fuel pump while some one is cranking the car. if you donot hear the pump, disconnect the pump electrical connector and applive 12 volt and ground to the pump by using a jumper or any wire and listen for pump sound. if not replace the pump. if there is sound coming from the pump, it is ok. check the fuel pressure regulator with a fuel pressure gauge or simply disconnect the vaccum from the regulator and try starting the car. if fuel pump is ok and spark is ok. then it maybe the computer or the crank position signal. also check the fuel filter it may be clog.
