2003 suzuki aerio won't start. No check engen lite as before. Charged battery changed relays. Check engen light was on car ran.car died tonight did the same thing and no check engen light


wont crank or cranks fast but will not start???????????????????
what engine is there, we cant guess them , ever. gas or diesel?
the CEL must glow key on then go out running, that is normal.
you need to stop thinking the CEL is magic nor the ECU behind it
a $100000 artificial intelligent entity.
IT'S NOT. (but the scan tool is very good to use now, if it dont start)
  1. ever get a tune up this decade??????? like spark parts an filtes, no? and timing belt ignored?
  2. fuses good.?
  3. spark good on all cylinders?
  4. starts with test fuel.? yes ,no.?
  5. yes, then fuel loss or flooding is it flooding?
  6. no, spark is bad or engine bad, since spark is ok, then engine and if engine is bad, then the timing belt slipped, due to #1
no engine stated so cant really wax too smart, can I.

dah line up...
engines.
1.3 L I4; 1.5 L I4; 1.6 L I4; 1.8 L I4; 2.0 L I4; 2.3 L I4; 1.4 L Diesel I4

got one of those?/?????????????????????????????

in USA the 2.0L is king but you never said country,.... so......
the J20 is cam chain drive, good for 250k miles, fresh oil all the time.


now guess 2,???????????????????????
battery goes dead , engine will not crank.
dash lamps dim, or dead, head lights dim or dead.
so that is called NO CRANK
or my starter is silent or its , just clicks
that is a DEAD battery, left head lights on, charge it now. fix phantom drains.
or cables rusty
or alternator(or related) dead. (car will stall driven after battery charged)
or battery is bad.

I have 1995 5.8 Bronco. Startturn off. Come back in few minutes won't start, but will wait for 10 minutes or so and then starts fine...until turn off again. Solenoid?


By suggesting solenoid I guess you mean it will not even crank. Heat soak can make solenoid act this way. If it cranks but will not start, I suspect leaky fuel injector(s) flooding engine.

My 2000 Honda Civic CX will not start with the Map sencer Pluged in


you meant, car will not run right (unsaid)
so i unplugged the MAP sensor (forcing limp home mode)
when was last time car had fresh fuel.
when was last time car was a daily driver?> last week, last year?
by removing the map the limphome goes huge rich state.
so id say , the engine is in a very lean state and going to limphome
hides this situation.
why not post full symptoms , with all parts back on engine.
did do the 60k mile , tune up yet? if the cam belt snaps, say good by to a good engine. (boom) Timing belt, sparks and filters.?
1: cranks ok.?
2: wont start
3: is it flooding? or starving for fuel. spark plug tips dry or wet.
if spark is good all cylinders, (no engine option stated) then
i check timing, if off the belt (cam) slipped.
if the engine is flooding i do the flooding tests.
if its to lean i do the lean tests.
ASK .
for the lean test i check the ECT , then fuel pressure.
the fuel pressure is 10 tests on a V6.
I can also test the MAP in 5min with a voltmeter, to see if its right.

here is the list ,
Good voltage 12vdc to the EFI starting and running.
Good engine, spec compression,
good spark and timed correctly if, off its the cam belt slipped,
good fueling,
there are simple tests for each.
i also make sure the EGR is not stuck open on all cars with this.
and that the ISC is not dead.(stuck and dirty)

Turns over but no spark, after new head askets


are you asking this 3 times removed? really>????
is this the 4 cam v6 or 2?
the 4 cam has 2 gears for 2cams and belt drive. 6ve1
the 2 cam v6 has no gears.
6ve1 engine, they have real names and all run different EFI controls
all do.

ok no spark (tested the wrong way !!!)
fuses good. or not, we test them not guess, on (looks ok)
you need to run compression on any engine with new head (or pulled) or leakdown 10x more safe.
that be first. you can bend valves on the 4 cam engine
(not on 2valve engines,one per bank)
forget the 2 CMP sensors on rear of both heads.?
spark dead on all 6 spark plugs
ckp dead.
CMP 1 or 2 dead
fuse blown.
has 6 ignition coils right, (usa) called C.O.P.'S.

i bet you didnt scan it cranking did you
if the pcm on the 6ve1 engine, sees cams turn wrong
it cuts spark to keep from bending over the head valves
the cams must be timed correctly and not in a cavalier manor
what's your engine vin code 8th digit
that tells the helper what engine is there, as you seem not to know.
there are 3 different V6 used here.

i see you really didnt check spark, just assumed it.
why? extend one cop, use fresh grounded test spark plug
omg got spark omg on all 6 in fact
omg compression is dead. x6 bent valves.

i never ever ever, crank any DOHC engine (messed with like this)
until the leak down test passes, by hand with shop air.
this act,saves further damage

VIN = Y or W
eight digit of vin is engine code. !!!
are 4 camsl

its flooding
so, compression is gone
sparks gone
or it over injecting for some reasons
if compression is ok, 150psi +
and parks good
secret wide open throttle will clear floods, (cut fuel mode )
but all this is risky on any 4 cam interference engine.

when i put the belt back (assuming cams not removed)
I check cam timing 2 time or 3 times, or risk bending valves.
6ve1
then do the leak down test now, just like you are there.
hand turned crank. (at each of the 6 TDC points(skills)
opps its got 0psi on many cylinder
that means valves are bent.

here is the SM quote step 4 belt install
WARNING If any binding is felt when adjusting the timing belt tension by turning the crankshaft, STOP turning the engine, because the pistons may be hitting the valves.
one can just throw an engine like that back together.
they also told you to set cam timing first, before pulling heads
or damage can happen,
but that depends on the event
belt snapped, jump cogs or just leaking head gasket.

It was missin now wont start


must be 90s week?
no starts, but cranks fully and full crank speed, which is near 300 rpm, called robust cranking but notarts.
its flooded.
(compression not above150PSI) means the timing belt has slipped.
and will never run right again, ever do the 60k tuneup yet.
if not , why not?
flooding.? so many way to flood.
1: spark plug tips x4 all wet with fuel.
use the cracking (wide open throttle like the op.guide shows)
this cuts all fuel, (EFI)
2: no spark, check spark x4 and if all 4 are dead, try the coil.
if the coil is dead, no spark there, then the dizzy is toast.
90 cars are a stand alone dizzy, meaning ECU is not doing this.
3: Flooding can be caused by other things.
see em all here.
over 28 ways !
but there are only really 3 ways.
1: bad engine (60k tuneup skipped.)
2: bad spark
3: bad fueling.

it is one of those,
there are 2 exceptions.
1: EGR main stuck open. (this kills fueling to start and low rpm)
2: CAT melted (this kills an engine, it cant pump air. )

I jumped car off it crunk on its own fora day,then batt went dead again,this time it won't jump off. It wants to crank but won't turn over.


not sure what you said but.
seems the battery is discharging,? 12.6v is fully charged,
own a voltmeter?
try a good loaned battery , does it start the car,?
i think you meant?
i can jumper cable start my car at any time. (off another running car)
but after running my car, the battery discharges and it will not crank at all. right?
this means ,the charging system on your car is bad.
if the starter cranks great, then the engine is flooded or is in great need of a tune up (sparkplugs etc)
if flooded try the super secret in the op guide, crank with throttle wide open , this magic trick cuts all fuel injection allowing the flooding
to purge away, and eventual starting.
my guess 2 is the car wont start, so you crank the battery flat
you jumper start it and it runs. (luck)
then day 2, same deal cranks ok but wont start.. ever tune up the engine?

1998 Chrysler Concorde Starting Problem


First of all, you should never touch the gas when starting it, on a fuel injected engine. Whether engine is cold, or warmed up, you shouldn't touch gas pedal. That was o.k. years back when carburetors were used, but not with fuel injection. Yes you will cause flooding especially when warmed up. Now there is a good chance you have a sensor or something acting up, but I'm guessing they checked for that when checking battery problem. You may be able to check for codes by cycling key, have yoou tried that, or had codes read yet?
