Question about 1996 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Started the truck. Started to drive away and it died. Would not re-start. It turns over but won't start. Seems to be not getting any spark. I am getting fuel. I replaced the pick up coil under the distributor cap. Had the crankshaft sensor checked and it checked good. Was told the only other thing it could be is the computer. Do you have any other suggestions. Thank you! Mark

Is engine getting fuel ? Do you have spark at spark plugs ? How long ago did you change the fuel filter ? Did you just fill or add gas ? It might have been bad gasoline ( WATER IN SYSTEM )

My 1998 ford explorer wont start its getting fuel and spark it seems to turn over fast when it try to start it


the timing may now be out as engine moved after the pulley had broke , have the timing checked, if it's turning over very fast the timing belt may have broken so the starter isn't turning anything !

1991 Honda Civic Problems car started ok. at stop sign died will not start getting gas turns over fine.seems like no spark


whaddya mean seems like no spark. There's no such thing as "seems like no spark. There either is or isn't and it's easy to tell. remove spark plug lay against good ground and crank. you'll see it for crissse sake.

Not getting gas is a fuel delivery problem, fuse, pump, or relay.

On sunday pray for it. all the other days cuss it out.
