Pull a plug wire and see if it arcs while your cranking,if so you have verified that the plug is getting current and probley electrical problem ,pull a plug and it should be wet with fuel,if so you have verified its getting fuel ,and last but not least manuely cover the air intake as your assistant cranks at first cover it completly and gradully alow a small amount of air ( you are manuely chocking your throttle ). if this did not get you something af a spark of life im at a loss, i would suggest if your going to work on it yourself ,to get a do it yourself book, haynes or chilton , try a half priced book store or auto parts store look in trouble shooting section , if you find the problem then go to that section to find out how to fix ,,,,good luck

SOURCE: No crank, no start, new battery

I've ha the same problem on my 95 civic. Changed the starter, a relay, checked the ignition switch, distributor... and found it was a faulty ground from engine to engine compartment. To check this last solution, simply attach a wire big enough between the engine and chassis and turn the ignition key. If the car starts, you've found your problem!

Hope this can help.

SOURCE: cranks but wont start

the 2 problems are seperate . The starter might have been the one draining your battery. The bushings on a starter can wear out and the core starts to fall down a little at a time until it hits the "beds" This causes the starter to lose speed as it falls. I would recomend that you replace the starter or have it rebuilt. The starting problem may be the coil or coils . although I don't know if your car has an external coil(s) or is built into the distributer.

Hi

Buy a bicycle ?

You are having fun !.....................NOT !!!

no 1....Check the fuel inertia switch has not been tripped ?

The problem has to be tied in with something you have done, as it was running till you put your hands on it.

Check back at the battery and make sure you have not pulled off a connection somewhere by mistake in the vicinity of the battery.

Check your fuses with a 12v test light !

Are you getting a spark at the plugs ?

Are you getting fuel pressure to the engine ?

Do you think your cam belt has decided to give up the ghost ? have you ever renewed it ?

Hopefully you have got it running by now ?

If not, try running through these thoughts.

Good Luck !

Please give a FixYa rating, if you think I deserve it !

John.

SOURCE: 1989 vw jetta wont crank. replaced battery still wont start.

Ive got a Jetta 2 CSI and had the same trouble. I then discovered that my coldstart packed up, wich you cant even get at the agents anymore. So If you are in the Benoni area I can fix it for you for 'n reasonable price, and you won't have that trouble any longer. Mine is still starting by just touching the key. 0829484343

I have a 95 honda civic ex,wont start.ran fine yesterday,wont start this morning.battery is fully charged,new cap and rotor.would do u think might b my problem


if it wont turn over 1st check the ground s on the car and the battery 1st. your battery can be fully charged and the car will not start even over night this can happen. then look at the starter. Note: if you have over 109K on the car and the timing belt has never been replaced you will need to have this checked as well.

Where are the components located on a 1994 E320 Mercedes Sedan?


don\'t understand: cranks fast enough (battery low??) or crank at all??. Need more detail(s);if it cranks at all but slow,you won\'t get a spark;don\'t touch the end of the spark plug wire \'cause it\'d make your butt pucker if/when you get spark!!! honestly.

My car wont start. I replaced my battery but it still wont start. Tested the alternator and it is good. Something might be draining the battery but not sure what?


Does the engine spin over and not start? Or turn the key and nothing happens?
New spark plugs and wires won't have anything to do with the starter and battery keeping the engine from spinning when you turn the key.
Need more specific explanation. Thanks,

Astro van won't start


Do you notice crank when you turn over the key in ignition to start. Does it turn over but does not start, or no start nothing at all. ---------- If its not cranking and nothing happens when you turn the key, then its battery and starter related problem, both needs to be inspected.Either battery is not completely charged or its weak battery,that is not holding charge or its faulty battery or its connections are loose.-------- BUT if it is cranking and not starting, this clears that battery has juice in it and battery is doing its job and other possibilities needs to be checked. -------- The other possibilities are ,is the fuel pump coming on when you turn the key to start,is the spark is noticed at spark plug, is the check engine light coming ON.
