Good Evening, this is something common in the older ford vehicles you should try replacing the ignition module if you do not have any spark.

Check for voltage at coil and also for spark leaking at coil to terminal. Maybe ignition fuse?

My 1991 ford festiva wont crank replaced fuel pump and screen and fuel filter and fuel pump relay still wont crank and we have pushed the reset button what now help pls


Won't crank? Problem is with starter-have it tested.
If it cranks and won't start, check for spark at one of the spark plug wires. If no spark when the engine is cranking, the ignition circuit is the problem.

Gas not getting to the carburator. Starter turns


Check all of the fuel lines very carefully for breaks or cracks in the fuel lines, especially between the fuel tank and the fuel pump.

If the fuel lines are all in good condition then you can safely assume that the problem is in the fuel pump and you will need to replace it. (If the fuel pump is in really bad shape the engine oil on the end of the engine oil dip-stick will smell like fuel)

Car cranks but wont start


replace your injectors. your vehicle is getting the fuel to start from the starter fluid. however the injectors arent giving it the gas that it needs to stay cranked

Yes, figure out if your not getting fuel pressure of spark. You may have a Igniton mode out if no spark. you may have a fuel pump out or the fuse or relay died.. Or you may have a ECM fuse that blew. You could have a wire somewhere for any of these systems broken.

Engine does not start immediately when cranking


The problem could be many things. Is the engine light on? Check for proper fuel pressure. Remove one spark plug and inspect. Your vehicle may just need a simple tune up. Spark plugs,distributor cap and rotor,fuel filter.

1992 bronco crank no start


are the injectors delivering fuel? just because u have fuel press it doesn't mean the injectors are working, buy a tool called a "noid", about $5.00, it plugs into the injector connector and blinks when u crank the engine if the injectors are working, u do one at a time. if not check the wiring harness to the engine, very common to have problems there. I have been a Ford dealer tech for 20 years and my specility is this type of problem, i.e. no starts, the ECM/PCM is not a common failure.

1983 F250 will crank but not start


timing may be way off, distributor rotor may not be pointing at no. 1 distributor cap contactor when no. 1 piston is at top dead center. Also, confirm your spark plug wiring order on dist. cap is correct.

My car started fine this morning the just abrubtly died and won't start at all


What have you checked? I would recommend check the fuel pressure, check the timing belt, check for spark at the plugs, start with fuel pressure test.

Check for timing gear problems. They have plastic teeth on the cam shaft gear which will shatter causing it to jump time.
