As you know, there are many components that could be causing your problem. Likely, it's a spark or fuel related problem that makes your car not able to start, or possibly a dead battery. Also, check ignition switch.

If you have a multi meter and a fuel pressure gauge, check the fuel pressure at the rail. You should have 48 PSI there. Then check the primary and secondary circuits of the ignition coil; it's easiest with the coil pack removed. Then make sure you check all your plug wires for proper resistance. Resistance should be 3-12K ohms per foot. You'll also want to check all the various electrical connections and vacuum lines.

I would also put a code scanner on it to see if you have any fault codes locked into the computer memory.

Check the battery for sufficient CCA and voltage. FInally, check if you have acticated some "inmobilizer" Theft System or Passlock.

I hear that cam sensor, crank sensor or broken flex plate can cause these exact symptoms a quality scanner can help pinpoint the exact problem. I also heard of corrosion on the wiring where the wires go thru the firewall can occur commonly caused by washer fluid dripping on that connector

Tell us news.

My 94 Thunderbird won't start until like the 4th crank, then it runs like a champ. It acts like it isn't getting any fuel. Please help!


You may be right on your hunch.
The fuel pump gets power from the pump relay for 3 seconds when you turn the key on, then no power until the engine starts. If the fuel pressure is low it could take several trys to get the pressure up to normal and the engine start.
A mechanic would check the pump relay and the fuel pressure with a gauge before and after cranking the engine.

Engine won't crank. What could be the problem


Hi Scott, What do you mean by 'won't crank?' Is the engine turning on the starter but refusing to start or is the engine failing to crank (turn over). If its the latter, try replacing the battery. If its the first option then send more details and we'll try to help out. Regards John

I have 2004 Chevy Malibu classic, it acts like it wanna crank but won't. it will turn over but won't stay cranked up.


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.
