You could have a blown ignition fuse, a bad camshaft or crankshaft sensor, coil, or PCM.

Does the car have plenty of gas in it? Make sure it turns over, it doesn't just click, click, click, and the battery is charged.
First thing 2 do is 2 check & see if the spark plugs are getting and providing spark to the cylinders.Take out a spark plug, connect the spark plug wire to it, hold the metal body part(the part of the plug that the socket fits on) against a solid metal part of the engine and try to start the engine with the key.(Use gloves to hold the plug and don't be scared of the plug, it won't shock U but it may be hot. Look for spark between the middle anode(That's the bottom center part of the plug, the top is the part of the plug that the plug wire attaches to. no insult intended) and the metal piece that is bent over the top of the anode. You will need someone to turn over or try to start the car while you are checking for spark. You should see a blue spark jump between the anode & the metal piece bent over it. You can also see if gas is getting 2 the cylinder by replacing the spark plug, leaving the plug wire disconnected from the plug and turning the engine over again or trying to start it. Take the plug out again and see if the bottom of the plug is wet & smells like gas. After these steps you have just checked 2 of the 4 things any internal combustion engine needs to start, SPARK & FUEL. The other 2 things are air in and air out, INTAKE & EXHAUST. You'll probably find the problem & if it is intake or exhaust you won't have a chance fixing it yourself anyways. Once U find out that it's not getting either SPARK or FUEL call your choice of auto parts stores, tell them what U found and ask them what they think. At least they will think you know a little about engines and they will talk to you. Good luck.

Oil leaking into cylinder


"leaking into the top of the second cylinder on top of the spark plug wire
only this matter !! cure that.

some engines have spark well. are you saying the wells fill with oil?
if yes, you didnt buy a real valve cover sit, try FELPRO that
comes with the well seals , with kit.
skipping is misfire. if the boots get fill of oil, sure it will misfire, how can it not?

Where are spark plugs located


follow the sparkplug wires / there the big 8mm wires coming out of box looking coil packs . need engine size to know exactly where the plugs are / try the top or front and back ,good place to start. 4 cylinder / 6 cylinder each cylinder needs a wire going to it imagine where the pistons would be and the plugs sit on top the pistons .

I put a 91 engine in to 88 body every thing fit but my engine wont start


Only three possiblities. no gas, no spark, or the timing of the 2. So first follow the full lines and disconnect and turn on the ignition. That will start the full pump. you should see gas flow. Next remove a plug wire and dont hold it but place it near a plug or anything metal on the engine. You should see a spark when cranking the car. Finally its the timming of the two. remove spark plug from number 1 cylinder, with a wrench turn the crank shaft around untill the cylinder comes to top dead center. Look through the spark plug hole you should see the piston top. Now take off the distrbuter cap and look to see which terminal the rotor is touching. follow the wire and make sure it is the same wire that goes to the number 1 cylinder. Of course if the distributor rotor isnt rotating then of course your timing belt is broke. Good Luck.

My Porsche won't start. I've changed all 12 spark plugs (it has twin plug heads), and am getting plenty of fuel into the cylinders (plugs came out wet), but still can't get it to fire. It has a Haltech ECU...


Pull one plug out of one cylinder, and place the top of the spark plug on the body of the car(grounded). Start(or have someone turn the car over) and hold the plug to a grounded spot. If the plug sparks it is not an electrical problem. Also, if the plugs are coming out wet, your flooding the engine making start even harder. Also make sure the plugs are gapped to manufacturer's spec.
