I don't know why, but the car isn't getting fuel. If it cranks and has spark but does not fire then it is a good chance the fuel pump is no longer operating properly. Once easy way to test this is to see if you can hear the fuel pump operating. You should be able to hear it when you turn your key to the "on" position (just before starting the engine). There should be a momentary buzz from the back as the fuel pump pressurizes the line.

I had a coil pack that I just change less than seven days prior burn up then I change out but not it will crank but not start im stumped it is a Mitsubishi endeavor 2004 6cyl.


Hello,

Assuming your spark plug firing order is correct after the coil pack replacement and your plugs and plug wires are clean and connected properly--and you have gas in the vehicle--I am thinking Throttle Position Sensor (TPS).
To test the TPS you hold the throttle pedal to the floor and start the vehicle, if the vehicle starts you need to clean or replace the TPS.

If the vehicle will still not start and everything was replaced on the vehicle as the parts came off of the vehicle--and the vehicle ran before think:
Compression: Washed cylinders (pull plugs and squirt clean oil in spark plug holes (one-two squirts).
Fuel: pull hose after fuel filter and crank vehicle
Spark: Pull plug wire and arc with screw driver when cranking engine. New coil pack could be faulty.

You may need someone to crank the vehicle (mind your hands) while you test. You should be able to find videos for spark testing.

I hope this helps.

Bike not starting


Do a plug elimination test, take the lead off one plug at a time and turn over the engine. If one particular plug being disconnected makes no difference then that plug is probably not firing. In this case try replacing the plugs.

1994 Bravada will not start after sitting idle for about 7 hrs


To clarify - are you saying it does not crank, or does not start ?
lt sounds like you are saying the engine will crank but not start, but then why would you need to jump the battery if that were true ?
If it cranks but does not start, have you checked fuel pressure with a gauge before and after cranking ? The fuel pressure could be low after sitting for a few hours if the check valve in the fuel pump is faulty.

98 Ford F150 w/4.6l Wont start. Hear fuel pump click. Have pressure on fuel rail. Pulled #1 plug from head and plugged back into wire. Grounded plug and cranked. No spark. Changed wires 4 and 7 four days...


have diagnostic codes checked to see if you have a cam or crank sensor fault. make sure fuel pressure is at the required pressure, just testing to see if you have fuel at the valve is not enough. replace all spark plug wires. if you replaced two then all are just as old and even when they "look good" does not qualify as "they are good". Replace coil pack. start up drive away happy

When you turn the key front. Listen for the fuel pump to prime. It should sound like a low humming noise that lasts about 3 seconds. If it does then check for spark by pulling one of our sparkplug wires and putting an extra spark plug in it. Place the end of the wire down somewhere safe and crank the motor. If you can't seek spark in the plug, it is most likely your coil failing. So, check fuel pump and fuel pump relays first, then spark. Good Luck.

Ford f250 superduty turbo diesel 7.3L Will not crank


Charge the batteries. take a Reading to make sure that you are getting almost 14v to both batteries. If it is not charging then take the alternator back off and have them check it. you might have bought a bad one. There is a way to test the glow plus with out taking them out. ( Take a piece of wire long enough to reach all the glow plugs from the battery. unplug the glow plug wire.If you touch the end of the glow plug with the hot wire it should make a little spark. if no spark then the glow plug is bad. do this to each one, but one at a time)
