95 3.8l does not have a timing belt, its a chain and sprokets.
they normally dont fail.
if the is no spark its probably an ign moduel called a tfi module.

My 94 mazda protege will crank but wont start. I replaced rotor and cap. Battery. Air sensor. When i try to turn over a thud comes fron the air sensor. Help please!!


If it won't start, have you checked for spark and fuel pressure? Remove one plug wire and ground it over the engine. Crank the engine and see if there is spark. IF spark is present, check fuel pressure to see if the pump is working. If spark and fuel are present, check for cracked air hose from air filter housing to throttle assembly allowing unmetered air into the engine. Also check for timing belt issues

95 fordc tauras gl 3.8 engine cranks but wont start has fuel pressure does cap and rotor have anything to do with it or timing belt gone .


cap and rotor affect spark so YES... this could be your concern

you need three things to start your car... Fuel, Spark and Compression PLUS they have to be in time

However, the two options you have are very differnt

No spark will not be similar to a broken timing belt

With no spark or no fuel the engine will sound "normal" when cranking

A broken timing belt would present it self as a FAST crank no start concern

1997 gmc savana 4.3, wont start ,has new fuel pump, new pressure regulator, new spark plugs , i cleand up the maxi ijector, looks ok no leaks,i do have spark and fuel but still wont work any ideas


only 3 things will cause this engine not to start (crank and not start) fuel, ignition, timing.
You haven't mentioned the engine cranks over or not, so I have to assume it cranks over.
Possible timing chain or the crank sensor on the timing chain. Have you checked this? you need to remove number 1 spark plug & when the piston is in the full top position on compression, remove the dist cap & see what spark plug wire the rotor is pointing to inside the dist cap. (I'm sure if you google checking for top dead center you'll find the proper procedure)

95 dodge caravan with no start problem.


Connect a timing light to the number one plug wire and crank the engine. Does the light flash indicating that the Number one is firing? Look at the distributor. If you have a distributor cap and rotor assembly remove the distributor cap and crank the engine. If the rotor turns check the rotor to make sure there is a good contact point and check the distributor cap to ensure there are good contacts. If either is damaged or worn replace them both. If the rotor does not turn you have a broken timing belt or one of the timing belt/chain guides has jammed and the engine needs to be rebuilt.

Take off cap and see if rotor turns when you crank it. If electric fuel pump see if inertia switch is tripped from closing trunklid or doors.

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.

95 civic wont start


An engine needs 3 things to run: Fuel, compression, ignition.

Maybe the timing belt went out. Take off the dist cap and see if the rotor turns as you crank the engine.

Next run a compression test on all the cylinders.

My jetta stalls


I have seen timing issues with the 95 jetta when your crank and cam marks are off a tooth, when you reset this it will not start. Remove the harmonic balancer and the lower crank sprocket, look for the sheer pin to be missing. replace lower sprocket if sheer pin gone. when set your crank and cam marks and put timing belt on. Tip, there is a timing plug on the top of the bell housing near block, usually green, remove plug . look for mark on flywheel and on tranny. if all three line up your timed correctly. good luck.
