    Before I can give you a solution, does your engine put out black smoke, when it does start?

    It's going to be your camshaft sensor, coil is fireing but at the wrong time, camshaft sensor sit in the ignition distributor, also know as ignition pick up coil.

Seat Leon Stylance TSI 1.4 Starting Problems

I suspect that it is in the starter and the problem will be in the starter pinion gear and over run clutch. There will be no codes for this area as it is not electronically controlled . I would have the starter bench tested to eliminate it as a source of the problem as it may also be the armature is poling out ( worn bushes)

MB 1992 W124, engine turns will not always start or if starts will stop.

If you have an external fuel filter, good idea to replace and then take for test drive. If problem still present, might want to cheek fuel pressure.
There are a few other components that could cause your issue. A fuel pump that may be going bad or there is lots of dirt inside fuel tank. Another problem could be a bad fuel pressure regulator.
Do you have any codes in your engine control module ?

The engine misfires when accelerating

Depending on your Grand Marquis's sounds like plug wires and plugs...(worn out) and or engine timing/firing order? If plug wires recently changed...the spark plug wires are in the wrong firing order...confirm the firing order from your local parts store by phone...and retrace each one...always start with #1 cylinder...hope this helps.

I have an 89 ford f-150 cranks wont start got fire, timing is right, fuel pump is pumping

Since you're sure that you are getting gas and fire and timing is right... (also check firing order), has anything been done recently that could help you locate the problem? Such as removed distributor (could be 180 degrees out)? New plug wires (maybe crossed)?
All else I could recommend is checking cylinder compression (In case the valves are the problem)... The engine timing chain could need replacing...
Hope this helps... Good luck!

My 1993 honda prelude was recently stolen, and it has some issues


hummm, lets see here. you had plug wires stolen and you put new ones back on the vehicle. sounds like you may have gotten the firing order out of place. for a 4cyl the firing order will be 1-3-4-2. so as you look at the distrubutor, # 1 cyl should be going to the plug closest to the drive belts. and then 2 next and so on....

the way to tell where #1 cyl on distrubutor is.. "bump" over the starter until you see a white mark on the belt pulley line up with the marker on the timing belt cover. when you get that done. remove the distrubutor cap and look at which plug wire i's pointing to... it should be #1.... if not you have a firing order problem, (check all other wire orders... ) start with that plug wire being # one and then next (don't remember which way this engine goes clockwise or counter clockwise) but make sure the next in line is 3, and then 4, and then 2..... got it? ...... good luck and hope this helped.

Ignition Wiring


To my knowledge, firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 clockwise on the distributor cap with the Number 1 post pointed towards the Number 1 cylinder. The cylinders are numbered 1-3-5-7 (front towards the back) driver side while the passenger side/bank are numbered 2-4-6-8 (likewise front to back).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
