If you try shooting starting fluid to it and it starts, it is likely your fuel pump

98 jeep put new crank sensor ' coil pickup' and coil ' i have no power to the fuse block on finder no fire to plugs and dont here fuel pump


No power to fuse block? This may be the problem. Check all your maxi fuses in the power distribution block. I think all the maxi fuses are hot at all times-check if they are getting power, and fuses are good.

Also in the power distribution center is fuse F15- a 30amp fuse for fuel pump relay, and fuse F6- a 15amp fuse, also for the fuel pump wiring. Check that both are good, and have power-F15 is hot at all times. F6 is hot in run or start.
This is the 4.0L inline 6, right? That is the engine diagram I have. The coil signal is from the ECU. Does the check engine light come on with key on, so you know the ECU is powered?

1988 F150. 5.0 Have fire and Gas but will not crank. Not even with ether . have fire at distributer and fire at spark plug. checked timing its good. Replaced coil and electric module on distributer....


I would check the compression first. Without compression it won't fire. I should be at around 160psi per cylinder. If any are below or varies 10psi per cylinder, then the engine needs to be rebuilt.

I changed my distributer cap and rotor, On my 1990 Cherokee 4.0 inline 6 ,I replaced plugs followed 153624 and now it wont start ?? i matched # 1 on the block to #1 on the distributer cap etc .. turns...


if that distributor has ever been out, it may not line up on #1. check to make sure the coil wire is connected tight on both the coil and the cap.

Sounds retarded , Spins fast when starting... Has 200,000+ miles . has no power ... There is at least 2 to 5 degrees play in the crank shaft before the rotor turns . Replace is the answer ?


sounds as if the compression is weak allowing the fast cranking and that would also explain lack of power or possible skipped time- timming belt jumped a tooth all of which says engine is tired yes.

I removed the distibutor from my 4.9 inline 6 without making any positioning marks. now i can't get the truck to start. i'm reasonably sure that i have found tdc on cylinder one on the correct stroke and...


Hi Mike.

No sir, no computer reset.

Use cylinder #5 TDC compression stroke to set up the timing marks on the harmonic balancer and point the rotor at the #5 ignition terminal on the cap.
Also when you get it running, use #5 wire to set your timing to 10 degrees with the spout connector at the distributor unplugged.
Not sure why Ford used #5 cylinder on the 4.9, probably just a joke by the engineers.

Thank you for using FixYa.

2000 NEON NOT FIRING ON THE #1 CILENDER


#1 cylinder not firing, check spark plug, spark plug wire, remove spark plug and use a compression tester, and check the compression of that cylinder. should have at least 65 pounds of compression per cylinder. If the compression is low, you may try shooting a little oil in to that cylinder, replace spark plug, and try running motor again. if the compression is low on said cylinder, could be due to bad piston rings. requiring a motor rebuild.

I have an 89 Jeep Wagoneer inline 6. Its not


You got the ignition cover, what you need to do an cylinder compression test and also check your injector for voltage while engine running hook test light to battery pos on neg and neg on pos, at injector harness check for pulsation, if you have pulsation elec. system ok, if good compression bad injector.if bad compression piston ring's or valve's.

No spark number 6 cylinder v-8


does not fire where? at the plug? have u checked the wire, cap..hmmm..77 ..how many miles on that motor? have u done a compression check? could be burned valve, fouled plug bad wire worn cap and or rotor ..check the obvious first. start at the plug..if it's not firing, swap it for a known good one.. if it doesn't fire, swap the wire, if it still doesn't fire swap cap and rotor..if that doesn't solve or identify where the bad component is.or if you find you have fire at the plug but still misses on the cylinder.... start looking inside.. run compression check... if it's low squirt oil in cylindeer and check again.. if it comes up drastically.. it's worn rings..but if it stays low probably worn valves. but i'm thinking its somewhere between the distributer and the plug.. good luck...

2000 cherokee wont start


Timing The ignition system on your car has to work in perfect concert with the rest of the engine. ­The goal is to ignite the fuel at exactly the right time so that the expanding gases can do the maximum amount of work. If the ignition system fires at the wrong time, power will fall and gas consumption and emissions can increase.
When the fuel/air mixture in the cylinder burns, the temperature rises and the fuel is converted to exhaust gas. This transformation causes the pressure in the cylinder to increase dramatically and forces the piston down.the spark should occur before the piston reaches the top of the compression stroke, so by the time the piston starts down into its power stroke the pressures are high enough to start producing useful work.
