    Thanks for the help, but we found it, bad coil wire that was new, right out of the box, put the old one back on and it started right up.

Fuel? Has fuel pressure and injection pulse? How about a compression test?

I had a coil pack that I just change less than seven days prior burn up then I change out but not it will crank but not start im stumped it is a Mitsubishi endeavor 2004 6cyl.


Hello,

Assuming your spark plug firing order is correct after the coil pack replacement and your plugs and plug wires are clean and connected properly--and you have gas in the vehicle--I am thinking Throttle Position Sensor (TPS).
To test the TPS you hold the throttle pedal to the floor and start the vehicle, if the vehicle starts you need to clean or replace the TPS.

If the vehicle will still not start and everything was replaced on the vehicle as the parts came off of the vehicle--and the vehicle ran before think:
Compression: Washed cylinders (pull plugs and squirt clean oil in spark plug holes (one-two squirts).
Fuel: pull hose after fuel filter and crank vehicle
Spark: Pull plug wire and arc with screw driver when cranking engine. New coil pack could be faulty.

You may need someone to crank the vehicle (mind your hands) while you test. You should be able to find videos for spark testing.

I hope this helps.

How to check a ignition coil pack to see if its good,


the coil does not crank the engine , the starter does that, sorry.
(if you ever had to hand or foot crank and engine , youd under stand that. (like motor cycles or boat engines, or per 30s cars.)

in fact will crank all day with no spark parts on car..

x2, the scan tool does tell you why there is NO STARTS, CRANKS OK. The pcm can detect, one missfire in 10 cmp;ckp signals.
  • CRANK FOR 5 SECONDS
  • release, key
  • scan tool has DTC errors?, read the believe them.
no engine stated of 4 or more,

U checked everything but spark,
why, check spark at all cylinders, all most fire or the engine will not run or stall.
That test be first, if not starting (AFTER SCAN TEST)

IF NO spark fuses are next , not last.
lets do no start fails tests. (cranks perfectly 200 to 300 rpm)
  1. : check fuses
  2. key on, CEL lamp must glow, if not , ECU fuse blown.
  3. crank with scan tool , see P03xx DTC errors, see RPM dead.?
  4. check for spark? got spark x4 or times number of cylinders?
  5. got spark try test fuel now, runs for 3 seconds?
  6. yes, runs on test fuel now means lost fueling
  7. no, dont run on test fuel, means, 1 to 5 done wrong above or engine compression bad.
  8. bad fueling, huge number of tests. check fuel pressure now.
confused, try a shop and watch them, learn.

I have a 2.8 v6 92 s10. The motor cranks but won't fire. I have replaced the o2 sensor, pcv valve, tps, iac valve, cap, rotor, plugs, wires, fuel pump filter and sending unit, rebuilt fuel pressure...


check for spark first,either with a spark test light or the old fashion method- screwdriver held close to metal,if no spark- distributer could be the culprit

Pid is parameter identification. It is telling you to read the tps on a scanner. So you would access it with a scanner. Unplug the cam sensor and crank it, see if you get spark. You are checking the coil pulse when cranking with a noid light?

1999 Dodge ram 1500 5.9l will not start


Here is a quick test you can perform to eliminate or confirm a problem with the TPS, MAP, Crank and Cam Sensors. A bad Crank or Cam sensor can cause a no start. You will need an Ohm meter.
The PCM has 3 connectors. Facing the controller from left to right, they are labeled C3,C2,and C1.
With the ignition off, disconnect C1. Set your meter for 2K ohms. Disconnect C1 and touch the test leads to pin 17 (5v) and pin 4 (sensor ground). (The pins are numbered) The ohm reading should be somewhere between 600 and 700 ohms. If you see less than 600 ohms start unplugging the sensors one at a time while testing. When you achieve 600 - 700 ohms you have found the defective sensor.
If your sensors are good, I would take the advice of rick7544 and swap out the ignition coil.

Hope this helps....
