1995 chevy full size van, cranks wont start Replaced fuel pump, rotor, dist. started once but now why does it crank but won't start?


It could be a bad fuel pump relay. Or the relay is not getting the proper signal from the pcm to turn on. If a new relay doesn't fix, have the relay's circuit checked.

I have a 1996 Acura 3.5 R.L. just put a new fuel pump in and it won't start. It turns over, but will not stay started.


Check your main fuel relay.



Fuel Supply System


PGM-FI Main Relay


Description


This PGM-FI main relay is located behind the dashboard


lower cover. The PGM-FI main relay actually contains


two individual relays. One relay is energized whenever


the ignition is on. It supplies battery voltage to the PCM,


power to the fuel injectors, and power for the second


relay. The second relay is energized for 2 seconds when


the ignition is switched on, and when the engine is running.


It supplies power to the fuel pump.

Relay Testing


NOTE: If the engine starts and continues to run, the PGMFI


main relay is OK.


1. Remove the PGM-FI main relay.


2. Attach the battery positive terminal to the No. 3*


terminal and the battery negative terminal to the


No. 2* terminal of the PGM-FI main relay. Then


check for continuity between the No. 5* terminal and


No. 2 terminal of the PGM-FI main relay.


• If there is continuity, go on to step 3.


• If there is no continuity, replace the relay and


retest.

3. Attach the battery positive terminal to the No. 4 terminal


and the battery negative terminal to the No.


7* terminal of the PGM-FI main relay. Then check


that there is continuity between the No. 3 terminal


and No. 1 terminal of the PGM-FI main relay.


• If there is continuity, go on to step 4.


• If there is no continuity, replace the relay and


retest.


4. Attach the battery positive terminal to the No. 1 terminal


and battery negative terminal to the No. 2*


terminal of the PGM-FI main relay. Then check that


there is continuity between the No. 5* terminal and


No. 2 terminal of the PGM-FI main relay.


• If there is continuity, the relay is OK;


If the fuel pump still does not work, go to Harness


Testing on the next page.


• If there is no continuity, replace the relay and


retest.

1985 Chevy El Camino 305ci. Turned over good but wouldn't fire. Replaced contrrol module and it started fine for about 2 months, then did the same thing. Replaced dist cap, rotor & coil. Start


Had an 84 silverado 305 that did the same thing. Try giving it a full tune up. Plugs, wires... Mine turned out to be fouled plugs. I didn't find that out till after i tore it down & put a timing set in it. Wasn't getting good enough spark.

86 prelude 2.o SI has no spatk and no PGM-FI light. how do I test the circut for that light


if you have changed the distributor cap,rotor button,spark plug wires and plugs and you still dont have fire then its most likely your distributor.first check the fuses or relays if you have replaced those items.

The car has no spark, changed dist coil, start module relay under dash, check engine light stays on when car does not start and goes of when it will start.


Check for power to the distributor when it wont start. If there is no power check the PGM-FI relay under the dash. If you pop the cover off and inspect the solder joints you can usually see a ring around one or more joints. this is a crack and will cause an intermittent no start. Typically it will happen on a hot day after the car has sat out in the sun for an extended period

Not getting any spark out of my plug wires already replaced coil, main relay,and ignition module. could it bemy rotar or distrbut


The Honda system uses a coil that mounts inside the dist, right ?
If you can check voltage output at the coil tower with the cap off you can find out if the coil is firing. If it is, then yes the rotor could be the problem. The voltage has to go thru the cap to the center of the rotor then to each plug terminal. The spark can jump thru the rotor and ground thru the dist shaft.

1997 5.7ltr gm truck...wont start. Replaced fuel pump, and relay. Has a carbon build up in the throttle body. Turns over/wont start


check for spark if there is no fuel coming out of injectors you can borrow noid lights from orielies auto parts check the injectors for pulse width if you have no pulse your computer is bad if vyou have no spark remove dist ributer cap and see if rotor turns while cranking if it does check for spark between coil and dist if no spark you more then likely have a bad ignition module

Car cranks but dose not start, there is no power to distributator or fuel pump


I suspect the at this point, the main relay is defective. This relay controls power to fuel and spark circuits.

The PGM-FI Main Relay is actually comprised of two individual internal relays. When the ignition switch is initially turned ON , the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) supplies ground to the PGM-FI Main Relay. This ground triggers one of the PGM-FI internal relays that sends battery voltage to the fuel pump for two seconds to pressurize the fuel system.
When the engine is running the PCM supplies a continuous ground to the PGM-FI Main Relay. The supplied ground keeps the relay in the "closed" position providing electrical current to the fuel pump, keeping the fuel loop pressurized while the engine runs.
If the engine is not running with the ignition on, the PCM cuts the ground to the PGM-FI Main Relay, causing the relay to "open" and stop the electric current flow to the fuel pump. As mentioned previously, if the engine is not running, the PCM will only supply ground to the PGM-FI Main Relay for two seconds when the ignition switch is initially switched to the ON position.
The PGM-FI Main Relay also supplies electrical power to the Idle Air Control (IAC) Valve and to the fuel injectors.

TESTING


If the engine starts and continues to run, the PGM-FI Main Relay is working and does not need to be replaced.
  1. Locate and remove the relay.

On some models of the Civic and Civic del Sol it is located to the left of the steering column under the dash. Many later models position it either near the passenger right side kick panel under the dash or by the driver left side kick panel up under the dash.
  1. Attach the battery positive terminal to the No. 2 terminal.
  2. And the battery negative terminal to the No. 1 terminal.
  3. Check for continuity between terminal No. 5 and 4.
  4. If there is no continuity, replace the relay and retest
