With fire to the plugs, then it is a fuel problem. Check fuel pressure

    I can almost guarantee it's the fuel pump, all 4 of my chevy truck vehicles had to have them replaced several times. Tahoe's are notorious for fuel pump problems.

SOURCE: Turn key and it doesnt fire

one way to find out. spray starting fluid in the intake then try to start. if it starts then your problem is fuel related.

SOURCE: Turning ignition key there is silence....battery

When this happens and the key is in the Ignition position, do the dash lights, etc come on? Could be the ignition switch is bad, and this is and easy way to tell. If the ignition is on and when we go to START, nothing happens, I would replace the starter/solenoid next.

SOURCE: Turn the key and it

This is usually an indication of a bad crank position sensor. Go to autozone.com and become a member. They have a tutorial on how to check and replace the sensor.

My mule will not keep running. Stopped suddenly after good start. Replaced the fuel pump. Still will not keep running. Fires. Then stops. Fires on starting fluid. What could it be?


When you say it fires with starting fluid can you keep it running with the starting fluid or does it just fire while cranking the starter then stop when the key is turned to run if it keeps running with the starting fluid then you still have a pump problem or the filter could be plugged or the carb could be bad but if it'd fuel injection then it might just not getting enough pressure fuel injection takes high pressure

Do the green key keep flashing or just when you try to start


Pull a spark plug, ground it to the metal engine somewhere, keep it plugged into the spark plug wire. disconnect the other spark plug wires so it doesn't start. Turn the car over (try to start it) and see if the one spark plug fires. Do not touch it or hold it while trying this. They use about 30,000 volts. You just confirmed one of the 3 requirements for starting: fuel, compression and spark. If you smell fuel anywhere but the exhaust, don't try this as the spark from the spark plug can ignite fuel or fumes in the engine compartment. If your spark plug fired ok, check to make sure the timing belt did not break. Sometimes you can pry the plastic cover open a bit over the cam gears, or sometimes there is an inspection hole, or you can look into your oil fill hole to see if the cam is turning (as the timing belt turns the cams). I modify everything I have to make it more user friendly. Nothing is perfect but faith and even that can be improved.

We get fuel and fire. The car just does not start.


fuel,fire and compression are the 3 keys,does it turn over fast,(timing belt?)
Also check to make sure there is exhaust coming out the tailpipe when cranking (plugged exhaust
will also keep it from starting)

My 1996 850 volvo wont start the engine turns over but wont crank


ok, turning over and cranking are the same thing, what your saying is it won't fire, so , 2 things make a motor fire, electric and fuel, so starting with the easiest remedy , remove the distributor cap, and inspect the rotor and connection points that are inside the cap, check for any debris built up , sometimes you can clean them good enough to get the car to fire up, if it does , normally you would replace them , ( not that expensive) remove the number one cylinder spark plug, and once out put the spark plug wire back on it, ( your going to need help with this step) with insulated pliers , hold the plug and place the bottom of the plug against a grounding point (any bolt on the motor will do,, but try and keep it away from the carb as its Hopefully going to spark) have someone try and turn the car over as if to start it, look for spark at the end of the plug, if you have spark,, replace the plug and try and start the car , if it won't,, move onto the fuel problem, you need to make sure that the car is getting fuel, remove the fuel line to the carb turn the key for a second, you should see fuel splashing out, if yes ,, you should be able to start the car , if no,, check the fuel filter first , then the fuel pump,

2005 Kia Optima that won't start, it keeps trying to fire but won't ignite, some people looked at it and think it might be the starter, trying to get an idea of how much this would cost to repair?


if it will turn over it is not the starter if turns over and will not start it is one of two problems not getting fuel or not getting fire. make sure there is fuel coming to the rail by pushing in on serator valve if equipped if not will have to disconnect the fuel line. this is a coil over ignition system remove one of the coils from the plug pull the plug out and ground it to something medal turn the key over and see if it sparks.

F150 won't start


So you turned the key just to "Run" and hear the fuel pump running (guessing elec pump)? Did you pull off a spark plug wire to check for spark? If no spark, pull the Distributor cap and check inside of cap, and rotor for damage, if ok, then the coil is bad, replace it. If you have spark at the plugs, have you tried Starting Fluid? (old school, go to AutoZone for this)

I have to turn the key and hold it a second or two for it to fire up; on my husband's Buick, you only turn the key and it instantly fires up, but my Kia is a little bit more temperamental.
