It sounds to me like you have a major problem. If you have power, that automatically scratches the altenator out. But if when you try to start it, does it try to turn over, or does it just make a noise that can be referred to as a ticking noise??? if so, its a dead battery. Other than that, if trys to spark but wont turn over, or if it just simply does nothing then your battery is fine. It's more than likely your starter. Which is somewhat an easy fix. But i would try the first test first... good luck

If battery is not fully charged could that cause engine to spin but not crank?


Spinning IS Cranking, they are the same thing. You mean cranking and not starting or firing. Old cars used to have a cranked handle that you inserted into the front of the car to turn the engine manually and start it. The cranked handle cranked the engine. History lesson as well :>)

If the battery is low, there may not be enough power to turn the engine and provide enough power to the ignition system. This is more of a problem in cold weather as the oil is more viscous and requires more amps to turn it over. Top it up with a battery charger.

'92 Saturn Sl twin cam. Starter cranks fine but engine won't start and when you turn the key on no power to the gauges, but it cranks the engine


Spark , compression , fuel ? Which of these are missing ? Spray carb. cleaner or starting fluid into the engine , does it try to start ? Pull two plug wires at the same coil , crank engine , is there spark ? No power to gauges hasn't anything to do with no start .

05 ford ranger started knocking and shut off now won't crank. What is wrong?


Started knocking and shut off ? Now will not start?
That sounds bad - check fluids - engine oil and coolant - those three symptoms can indicate overheating (either by lack of coolant or engine oil).
Did either fluid get low AND does the engine oil look contaminated - milky colored and way overful.
Not Start? Does it turn the engine and just not fire up running?
Or does the engine not turn over at all?
If the engine is siezed - you can tell by the electrical power needed to crank the engine - turn on the lights and try to crank the engine - if all you hear from the starter is a click and all the lights dim - that means a lot of power is needed like:
1. the battery doesn't have enough power - jump start to verify
2. or it requires more power to turn the engine than the battery can provide - engine siezed - try turning the engine by hand with socket/wrench to verify.
I hope your engine is not siezed - if so - hope you still have warranty coverage on the powertrain.
Please let me know what you find and if this helps?

My van is hard to start first thing in morning and has a new fuel pump


The fuel pump is just one of many components that could cause poor starting if not at peak efficiency. You don't say whether the engine is petrol or diesel powered but in both cases a good cranking speed is essential to cold starting and again in both cases sufficient fuel must be delivered into the combustion chambers in the right form; bad spray patterns due to worn or dirty injectors can cause bad starting, though most commonly in the case of petrol engines it is a poor spark or worn spark plugs and in the case of diesel engines tired or defective heater plugs that cause poor starting.

There is quite a bit to think about and quite a bit to check...

Why did engine running, won't restart.


lots and lots of reasons, guessing. over 50 (bad engine?)
but does it crank?, no car starts unless it's cranked or
like my car, push started or gravity started (a 6sp m/t)
if engine fails to start , and cranks robustly (fast starter motor)
then
1: never tuned up, running 10 year old spark parts.
2: blow fuse. check fuses.
3:; lost spark, check spark.
4: flooding or loss of fueling. to unflood any engine, crank at wideopen throttle (oper, guide tells you that)
5: timing belt not changed at 60,000 miles it will fail, and will not start
or start have like 1/4 power.
6: lost compression in or more cylinders.?

or
get it serviced? if all that is too much work? or confusing.

Wont start no power


the order is ( no M/T tranny and push starting,,,, its an A/T right?)
1: cranking, it must crank or it can never start.
2; start, does it start.
3: power, if it can start , the engine is dead, there is no power.
my guess is its #2.

No spark from ignition coil to start the engine of suzuki vitara16v EFI engine. what is the cause of it


what year? what country? sounds like suzuki G16b engine. is it? or 2.0L?
The reasons are the same basically for G16 or the 2.0L
Both engines have ECU.
Both need good fuses to power ECU and coils.
Both engines need working CMP.
my guess is this is a distributor engien G16b (YOU SAND COIL NOT COILS.)
1: fuses, test the fuses relate to ECM/PCM (3 fuses)
CEL LAMP MUST BE ON KEY ON OR ECU HAS NO POWER.
2: g16B( CRANK FOR 5 seconds), with scan tool connected.
A $50 tool that is indispensable.
P0355 or P340 DTC , bingo, no spark.
or while cranking RPM is dead at 0 RPM.
if all that passes, then check the coil signals. (@ minus term)
The coil has an ignitor in the dizzy and both can go bad.
recap.
power 12v to ECU
CMP working
ECu sees CMP and sends spark to dizzy ignitor.
Ignitor , drives coil, coil makes spark ,engine runs.
nut shell

Is it the battery or the alternator


All the battery does is supply power to the starter to crank the engine over. The alternator doesn't start working until after the engine is started. It supplies electrical power to the engine after it has started and also recharges the battery. If the engine is cranking over but not starting it is neither the alternator or the battery. Check for spark and fuel pressure your most likely missing one of these.
