1997 Isuzu rodeo v6 2wd 3.2l has no spark from the ignition coils. Ignition Relay changed. Crank sensor changed. What else could be wrong. The motor just turns over like it wants to start but doesn't.

have you checked for a broken timing belt /chain
what about faulty cam shaft position sensors
it would be a champion idea to run the fault codes before wasting money changing what is not faulty

1992 acura integra wont stay running

You need a scan tool hooked up and the fault codes read, suspect you have a crankshaft position sensor or igniter module issue going on here. Keep in mind that is just a guess so don't assume this is the problem get the testing done..

Ive got a 1997 cavalier it will start but quickly dies out ive got fire to my plugs and fuel to the injectures ive just replaced the ignition switch is there somkind of a security

You need a new fuel pump relay. The engine fires up and runs off the oil pressure switch untill the oil pressure PSI is reached at normal operating conditions. When the oil pressure reaches its operating PSI the PCM or engines computer will shut off that circuit and turns on the fuel pump relay to run the fuel pump untill you shut the engine off

Starts and runs but shuts off after a few minutes. fuel smells rich.

if it shuts off u have unburned fuel so that is not the problem, run a trouble code test and see what shows up, u can buy a code reader for about $35 from Autozone

Car starts and runs for 20 seconds then shuts off . replaced fuelpump relay, no help.

If the vehicle is a 1997 or later there should be a trouble code stored before replacing expensive sensor attain a OBD II code reader to more accurately diagnos this problem, first replace the fuel pump this is money well spent anyway,be sure that the fuel system is depressurized before replacing the fuel filter

Fuel problem

Most GM vehicles use the cigarette lighter fuse to power the data link connector. Better way to test a fuel problem is with a fuel pressure gauge. Code reader may give you a rich or lean cose but won't tell you why.

1997 gmc sierra shuts off while driving

Had same problem with a Yukon. Turned out to be a bad fuel pump (Won't show codes.) When cold ran fine, heated up, no pressure. Would start after sitting for about 1/2 hour. When engine dies on you check for fuel pressure under the hood.

My c1500 5.7L has no fuel supply, autozone tested, bad OX sensor

Find out if that truck is equiped with a inertia fuel cut off switch, but I doubt that it is. Also have the fuel pressure checked, it might be a bad or weak fuel pump, or fuel pressure regulator.
