Engine spins over no fire at plugs


sounds like u have a problem with your coil pack that is what sends spark to plugs

3) Spark: From battery to spark plug

The battery is the source of stored electrical power in the vehicle. A voltmeter between the terminals of a healthy battery should read 12.5 volts. A reading of 12.2 volts indicates a flat battery and a reading of 10.4 volts indicates a dead cell (each cell beingabout 2 volts). A battery should be capable of sustaining high current, as needed by the starter motor when turning the engine over. When the car is running the voltage measured across the terminals shouldbe between 14.2 and 14.5 volts. The value is the voltage being supplied to the battery by the output charge from the alternator. THis charging voltage should not alter much when additional load is applied to the battery (head lights on etc).
When the ignition key is turned to the second position,often referred to as 'key on engine off', all car functions are powered up including lights and fuel pump. When the key is turned to position 3 many ancillary functions are temporarily interrupted to allow the battery to meet the extra needs of the starter motor. Electrical charge from the starter switch passes through a master fuse and starter relay before energizing the starter solenoid. The starter solenoid moves the pinion gear on the starter motor to engage with peripheral teeth of the flywheel. Simultaneously, heavy copper contacts are bridged by this same movement causing the starter motor coils to become energized thereby turning the engine over.
During the ignition process electrical charge passes through the primary windings of the ignition coil(s). The engine control unit (ECU), taking signalsfrom the engine crank position sensor, collapses the field of the coil(s) appropriate to the cylinder requiring ignition. As the field collapses the secondary coil windings discharge very high voltage through the high tension lead to the spark plug. The charge is so high that at the spark plug gap the charge jumps across with a spark. The compressed fuel air mixture in the cylinder is ignited by this spark.
Checking the spark process starts with the plugs. The condition of the removed plugs reveals a lot about the nature of the ignition within the cylinders. Dark sooty deposits indicate overly rich fuel air mix and glazed plugs indicate overly hot lean mixtures. Removing the plugs (with the fuel pump relay unplugged) and holding the screw threads to the cylinder head whilst turning the engine over will reveal the quality of spark. The spark holders and leads should be examined for discharge through the insulation to the cylinder head. Removing the leads from the coil should reveal sparks emanating from the exposed connectors. Failure to see sparks at this point indicatesa failed coil (especially if neighboring coils show good spark) or a failed crank sensor if all coils show no spark.

Olds cutlass will not start we have change the fuel pump and spark plugs. the old plugs had gas and were black on the end. Its still will not start just crank a little


I would suspect no spark - have you put a spark plug wire onto a removed ( not installed ) plug, held it to the engine with INSULATED pliers and cranked the engine? You should have a BLUE spark from the electrode of the plug - any other color ( or no spark) indicates no juice and you'll need to first check the wires going to the coil ( s) to ensure the connectors and wires themselves are good ( no corrosion, grease, or other contaminants on connectors or lumpy wires ) and test the coil ( s) for output. If the engine turns over slowly, you could have a bad battery, starter solenoid, or starter. Check for spark first. if ok, remove the battery and starter/solenoid assembly and take them for testing at your local parts store ( make sure you disconnect the negative lead from the battery before pulling the starter, if just taking the starter). If none of these cure the problem, it could be computer related, which will require a diagnostic to be done on the car ( by a shop, as the equipment to do this is expensive and delicate).
Hope this helps!!

Wont start it cranks but nothing happens.wont turn over. put a new what you would call distributor. still nothing.


If the Starter isn't turning the engine over, but you hear a clicking sound, you may have a bad Starter.
If the Starter is turning the engine over, but you are getting no Spark, you may have a failed Camshaft or Crankshaft Position Sensor, or your Timing Belt may have jumped or broken(common on the neons).
If the Starter is turning the engine over, but you are getting Spark, you may have a failed fuel pump, fuel pump relay, or fuel pressure regulator.

Before you start replacing sensor, double check the Timing belt to ensure it hasn't broken or jumped, and check to see if you are getting a spark or not.

Replaced starter car still won't start


if the engine does not run, 90 percent of the time it is starved for fuel, or has no spark. the only time the starter is suspect is if the engine's crankshaft does not spin when the starter is engaged. so you replaced the starter, but the problem most likely lies in the fuel supply or spark.

REPLACED STARTER AND STILL WONT START TRYED TO JUMP START NOT SURE WHAT TO TRY NEXT


mate y did u change your starter motor.b4 u change the starter ,was the old starter motor turning the engine?if yes check for your spark.pull one of the spark plug lead put one screw driver inside it,ground it on the body o the car and crank the engineand check it it is sparking,if yes spark is their check for fuel if its coming into the engine and if their is no spark change your disi or coil

Starter won't turn over engine


I know it sounds dumb, but by turning over, you mean that the engine turns but does not start? Or, that the starter turns but the engine does not turn (spin with the starter engaged and running). If engine turns with starter, check spark & fuel. If starter turns and engine does not, check the teeth on the flywheel. if any are missing or worn off, it will give that problem. If starter engages but engine seems to be "locked up", remove spark plugs and attempt to turn it by hand. Any coolant on plugs indicates a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head. If engine does not turn by hand with plugs out, likely you have a bearing or other "lower end" problem.
