My toyota corolla isnt getting fire to the spark plugs. what could be causing this?


Possibly you could check for spark plug for any rust or it needs to change. Pls. see the upper ceramic portion(insulator) if it looks reddish/yellowish, it should be changed. Check the gap of electrodes, big gap could be another reason.
Check the wire connected to the plugs, sometimes vapour could cause rusty connection, if not ignited for a long time.

Check the battery connection. Sometimes loose connection or salty pole could not pass the proper current.

Another major cause could be distributor problem. But it should be checked by pros.

1999 Nissan Maxima wont turn over. It cranks, but wont start. It isnt the battery cause its new. My friend said it may be an electrical problem or fuel pump. How can i determine if i am getting a spark? My...


Need three (3) things for an Internal Combustion Engine to run, FUEL, COMPRESSION, & IGNITION. To check spark, pull a plug wire and connect to a spark plug that is sitting on a metal (grounded) surface and crank the engine over. You should see a spark on the plug. If there's no spark present you have narrowed it down to an Ignition Problem, but there's still a mulitude of potential problems that'd cause that. Fuel injected engines do require much more fuel pressue than carb'd engines, so that may need to be checked (external fuel pressure gage) if there is a spark present.

My car will turn over but wont crank. there isnt any fuel getting to my throttle body. what would be the cause of that? there is gas in the tank and its sucking through the fuel filter but for some reason...


HI, There are a few things that can cause this. You maybe getting fuel to the filter but is there enough volume and pressure needed to start the vech. You need to also determine if you are getting spark. The 2 main causes of no starts for these cars was the CKP (crankshaft position sensor) and the Ignition module. Neither one is a fun to get at they are on the back of the engine towards the firewall. good luck

WONT START AND TRIES TO TURN OVER BUT BACK FIRES


AWESOME a real camaro problem.
backfire.
strong odor of gas because the gas isn't getting burned
caused from backfire. backfiring because the spark isnt sparking when its supposed to.
problems could be bad spark plug wires , bad plugs , bad ignition parts.
your gonna need to check wires for bad spots, check ignition coils and stuff like that. if all that stuff is ok, then your problems have to do with inside the engine. jumped time etc.

Engine light on


They are still looking for a cause because it isnt misfiring right now or because they cant find the cause of the stored misfire codes ?
If it is misfiring right now and they cant figure it out then perhaps you should find new mechanics !
I have seen a lot of bad coils on the PT.
Misfire is usually caused by spark plug wires first, spark plugs 2nd, and coil third.
If it isnt misfiring now, spray down the wires with water. If it misfires after that replace the spark plug wires and spark plugs and try again.
If it still misfires then the problem will likely be the coil.

Replaced alternator and battery is good but not charging


I found the problem YEAH. It was the fuse that is in the side of the fuse box under the hood, Its where the battery wire from the alternator connects thru a fuse to go to the battery, Its one hundred and something volt fuse. It took care of the problem instantly.... Thank you all for your replies...
