Do you at least hear a clicking or clunking sound (possibly only a single click) when you turn the key to the start position - if there's not even that it's either a bad fuse or relay, if there's only a faint click (might not hear if hood is closed) it might be the solinoid on the starter; the louder clicking/clunk sound is likely the solinoid and just the battery may not be charged/holding a charge (iirc 5 years is the average life of most car batteries)

I have a 2004 geand am. the motor turns over but wont start. I changed the fuel pump, the ignition is good, fuses are all good but it will not start


Check for spark (pull a spark plug and arc it to a grounded surface) and check for fuel to the engine (can be done through the spark plug hole opened by removing the spark plug)

Engine wont start


Sounds like a fuel or spark problem. Check your fuses first. If it is not a fuse you need to determine if you have enough spark and enough fuel arriving at the spark. First pull out your number one spark plug and check the spark and gap to rule out the need of new (or cleaning of old) spark plugs and/or ignition system (i.e. ignition wires (you will need a spark plug gapping tool for this)). If that has been ruled out then remove the injector rails and try a quick turn of the key to determine if they are delivering fuel by noticing if the fuel squirts out. If you have little or no fuel coming out (it should squirt hard) of they injectors you will then need to determine where the stoppage is (whether you need injectors, fuel filter, fuel pumper or any combination including all of the above). If you determine it is a fuel problem check the filter if it is blocked or dirty replace it. If it is not the filter then change the pump. If it still does not work you need to clean or replace the injectors. Replacing is suggested, the fuel injector cleaners are not good for other components of the vehicle and also are not good for the environment. Of course I write this under the assumption you have fuel in the tank.

My 1999 nissan quest van is like its mot getting gas I put new fuel pump spark plugs cleaned fuel injectors it's still not starting


Can you hear the pump hum or buzz when you turn the key to on? It should come on for a couple of seconds to pressurize the fuel system. If you don't hear it, check the fuel pump fuse. If fuse is good, find the fuel pump relay under the hood. Hold a finger lightly on the relay and have someone turn the key to on. You should feel it click on to power the fuel pump. If no click from the relay, you will have to diagnose the fuel pump circuit. The relay should have power from a fuse link or a maxi-fuse that may be out. The computer signals the relay to turn it on.
Now if you do hear the pump, you would want next to check the ignition circuit: check for spark on one or two of the spark plug wires. The ignition is probably good if you see a blue snapping spark. If weak, intermittent, or orange colored spark, the ignition circuit would need diagnosing.

I have a 1998 dodge avenger se 6 cyl,, an it wont start its not the battery or the Fuel Pump not the Starter it just dont have any spark it acts like its out of gas but has a haf tank all looks good an...


when you turn on key, do you hear the fuel pump run for a couple of seconds ? check fuses, & fuel pump relay,(it has a fuse also). fuel pump cannot be ruled out. next, your coil provides spark to plug wires, with an assistant, in drivers seat, pull off a spark plug wire from a spark plug, use a paper clip, insert into end of wire, with the helper turnning the key to crank engine, hold the wire w/clip about an 1/8 " from clean metal, to see if a spark occurs, wear gloves, or you may get jolted, if you know what I mean. if no spark, replace coil, I would replace plug wires also. remove spark plugs , if worn, replace. just do it !!! you need spark correct ? well then ! whens the last time you replaced fuel filter ? do it ! a new air filter will help also. air, fuel, spark all work together. go to parts store, if you can, see if they can pull any trouble codes . if you can't do the work mentioned above, it just might be your problem . now get to work , make it happen !!!!
