Question about 1999 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

All of this is right, timing, fuel pump, spark plugs, ignition module work, compresion, but still not starting. I was told that maybe the starting code was lost due to the battery being disconnected for a long period. ¿How do I reset this code?

My subaru just turns


Sudden no starts are usually gas or ignition spark related. You could check for spark on a spark plug wire OR you could spray a shot of starting fluid into the air intake, and then try starting-if the engine fires up briefly, then you know it is a fuel problem-maybe the pump or the filter or an injector circuit problem. The fuel pump should turn on for a couple of seconds when turning the key to on, not start. This puts fuel pressure in the line and at the injectors. If you have gas up to the engine under pressure, the pump is working. You should still have the fuel pressure checked to make sure it is at the correct pressure for your vehicle-a worn tired pump may not be doing good enough.

If the starting fluid causes not a peep from the engine, check for spark. If no spark, the ignition system will need diagnosing. It could be a fuse or an ignition part failed-the coils, the ignition control module, the crank position sensor (for timing of the spark), the ecu, etc.

1991 Cutlass ceirra 3300 ,runs fine for short time. starts running rough,then dies/will not start again.changed fuel filter, then tested fuel pump.fuel pressure is good.what next ?


Check for spark when it won't start. If you have spark, might be your fuel pump relay, maybe the map sensor. If no spark, check another or all plug wires. If ignition isn't working, it could be Crankshaft Position sensor, Camshaft position sensor (or pick-up coil), ignition control module, coils, pcm, or the wiring associated with them. PCM determines spark timing after inputs from crank and can sensors, and sends ground signal to ignition module, cutting primary voltage to coils, initiating spark or high voltage from coil to sparkplug. All these parts have to be working right for ignition. All can be tested too. You'd need a digital volt ohm meter (DVOM) and a repair manual for your car with the test procedures. That Mitchell alldata-diy site has a special on subscriptions, pretty reasonable for a 1 month subscription, and excellent info and troubleshooting flow charts, wiring diagrams, etc.

My 96 acura integra won't start but turn over


Get some engine starter spray. Follow instructions on spraying into intake. This will serve as a fuel source to test spark/ignition. You will want help cranking the car while you spray. If car stumbles and tries to run, you have a fuel problem. If after trying for a few minutes there is no change, then I would bet you don't have spark. Of course you could go further and say there could be a timing issue, no compression, etc. But I would start with the easy stuff first.
When was the last time you did a tune-up? Are the plugs in good shape?

I had my spark plugs changed today and now my car won't start it will turn over but won't start


fuel problem or spark problem neither is associated with a change in sparkplug unless you had a sever misfire that you let go for a long time to cause thhe igition module to fail.and this include the crank sensor that is underneath the ignition module. cycle the key you should hear a humm at the fuel tank and that is the fuel pump working if you hear the fuel pump then more than likely you will need to correct for spark ignition module and crank sensor

Galant Special Edition 1994 Motor does not start


this maybe caused by no fuel or faulty fuel pump, ignition coil, wire and plug crank position sensor. first check for spark by removing on spark plug wire and put a spark plug in the spark plug wire boot, donot touch the plug only the boot have someone crank the car over. if you see spark, that part of the ignition is good. if not, check the coil resistance if should 40 to 80 ohm with a volt meter pf not replace. if ok, but no spark check the igniton control madule make sure the coil and module are receiving current. if not check the fuse that feels them. if it is ok, check distributor cap and rotor. if rotor and cap are fine, check for fuel at either the fuel filter, the fuel return line or removing some spark plug and see if they are wet. if there is no fuel check the fuel pump and the fuse and relay that control the pump. if there is fuel with high pressure but there is no spark, check the crank sensor for signal with a volt meter while cranking the vehicle
