Sounds like the Ecm has went up. It has to be electrical. Unplug a injector and hook up a volt meter. While someone cranks the car you should see voltage show up on the meter. It will not be constant because the injector does not always fire.
You can also run a wire from the battery to the injector. you should hear it click.

Car won't start. Just replaced fuel pump. Any ideas what could be wrong?


jaguar had a problem with their fuel rails rusting out from the inside filling the little screens in the top of the fuel injectors blocking the flow of fuel. I ran into this problem several times and solved it by replacing the fuel rail and cleaning the injectors. Don't know if this is your problem but it is a suggestion based on my past experience. I am assuming you have good ignition and have a fuel delivery problem. You might try disconnecting the feed pipe from the fuel rail and seeing if there is any fuel pressure there. If there is pressure, check the fuel rail. Also you might spray a little starting fluid into the air cleaner to see if it fires up. If it does and then dies you know for sure you have a fuel problem. Good luck!

96 nissan altima just stalled out. New cap, rotor, coil. fuel pump comes on, new battery, full tank of fuel. turns over forever, no GO! Can I check for fuel pressure in the rail? Clean the fuel pump sock...


On the fuel rail at the injectors is a bleeder valve that looks somewhat like a tire valve. Have someone turn it over while you push this down. It is possible that you have air in the line and that is what is causing it to not want to crank up. Another way to check if it is something in the fuel rail, spray ether into the intake while someone is turning it over. If it cranks you have spark and no fuel or not enough fuel.

Won't run. has spark (weak)fuel to fuel rail.


id be leaning twords a coil pack on this one, if the spark is weak change the plugs and wires first since its cheaper, then if that doesnt cure it change the coil pack.

Here is a pic of a schrader valve. They all look about the same.3.jpg
If there isn't much pressure, cycle the ignition without turning the engine over and try again. If it is still weak, you may need a new fuel filter. If it is strong, you may have dirty or clogged fuel injectors.

It may be spark, but I'm inclined to think it is fuel related.

Good luck, and keep us in the loop!

are your injectors being fired by the computer.remove one of the injector connectors and using a low impedance test light or a small dash light bulb check for pulse or blinking light while cranking.

is the fuel spraying into the cylinders? pull a plug and see if they have fuel on them.....If not you have a problem at the injectors if there is pressure on the rails. If fuel is present you aren't firing strong enough to ignite the fuel. pull a plug and put the wire on it and touch it to a ground and check to see if it is a good blue spark or a weak white or yellow spark...If no spark check for dead plugs or distributor module,

My 1995 subaru will not start.  i have tried spraying starting fluid in the injectors the car ran for 2 seconds and died.


If the engine fired on ether it means that you have a fuel supply problem, check the fuel pump.

Crank no start: has no spark and only has injector pulse on cyl # 1. if you spray starting fluid directly into throttle body car starts and stays running and has spark and inj. pulse. once you turn the car...


Fuel pump, you have to have press in the rail to fire all injectors- she will run on ether but not good for her. Ck your pump and any related fuses,relays,wiring.
