1995 Lexus LS400. Car was left in garage for two weeks while we were on vacation. Upon return it won't start. Engine does turn over. Replaced fuel pump in attempt to troubleshoot. Mechanic ha


I assume the pump was replaced because it was getting power but no fuel pressure ?
Are you still not getting fuel pressure ?
Spark to the plugs ?
Normal compression when cranking the engine ?
Security light not staying on ?

I have 85 rx7 12a engine carb getting spark and fuel,it will turn but it won't start what could it be.


It takes 3 things for a car to run... spark, fuel, and air. Sounds like you should be looking for a problem with the air, IF it is getting spark and fuel. Food for thought.

Car turns over but won't start


Which engine?

I would first check the following:
Are you getting spark at the spark plugs? If not, check the ignition coil or coil pack.
Are you getting fuel to the engine? Make sure there is fuel in the tank, and that the fuel pump is working.
Check all your fuses to make sure they are OK. A blown fuse to any critical engine component (ECM, ignition, fuel supply) will prevent a vehicle from starting or running.

2003 kia Sedona won't. start


If this is a sudden occurrence and nothing suspicious happened prior, you most likely lost either gas or spark to the engine. You need to check for both.

Do you hear the fuel pump in the gas tank buzz on for a couple of seconds when you turn the ignition key to ON? Unless the fuel pump turns on and puts gas under high pressure at the fuel injectors, the engine cylinders won't get gas to start. Correct fuel pressure is crucial to know if you have a fuel pump (or fuel filter) problem. If the pressure is correct, it is probably not a fuel problem but a spark problem, although there are less common instances where a fuel injector circuit may malfunction.

The ignition system not producing spark at the spark plugs is the other common problem of no starts. Buy a cheap spark tester at a parts store, plug it into one of your spark plug wires, then crank the engine over and watch for a strong blue spark. You might need a helper to do this. If you see a consistent spark, the ignition system is probably good, although you should probably check more than just one plug wire-sometimes one bad ignition coil in a coil pack will cause no starting. Good luck.

1988 toyota camry 2.0 turns over but won't start. Car has been driving like a champ and one morning wouldn't start. Turns over fine but won't fire. Tested for spark by removing spark plugs...


Fuel pressure at idle is normally 30-35psi. Start by taking the gas cap off, and putting it back on. That will De-pressurize the fuel system. Also, make sure you have gas in the car. I have seen gauges on these cars read wrong. I hope this helps.

My 1999 buick turns over but won't start I had the ignition module checked & it was ok it appears that i am getting spark any ideas why it won't start?


It could be that your fuel pump is not getting enough fuel to the engine to start it. Is your starter turning over or trying to start the engine.

Turns over but won;t start


Hello,well there are only 2 things that make any engine run...fuel and spark.. #1. to check if your getting spark you want to use a pair of pliers with rubber grips( if not you will get shocked ) then pull one of the spark plug wires off the plug (and if you have an old spark plug laying around you can put it on that wire turn engine over and see if you get a spark.) and holding it a 1/4" inch away from plug(or any metal surface of frame) have someone else turn engine over and see if your getting any spark?( its easier to see spark at night.) #2. if you have spark,then its in the fuel system.( will be your fuel pump,fuel pump relay,clogged fuel filter,ect.) if you dont have spark,it will more than likely be your ignition coil... good luck...yz-maniac.
