It turns but it wont start,it has gas and power

Pull off the coil ignition cable at the distributor and check for spark coming out of coil when cranking engine over. Use a heavy rag or glove to hold the wire 1/4 inch from a metal ground. Should see a strong blue spark when cranking to verify ignition is good. If no spark, check for battery voltage to coil on the coil primary. If you have current to the coil, suspect a bad coil, ignition module, crank position sensor, or cam position sensor, or pcm. The coil, ignition module, and sensors can be tested before replacing.

How to fix a1998 buick century to start fuel filter new and airfilter turning over but not starting gets gas

Did you check for spark? It sounds like you're not getting spark. Check for spark. If you are not getting spark then it sounds like you might have to replace the coil packs. Is it running a L4 engine? If its running a standard chevy L4 its probably the coil packs. Try to replace them check again for spark.

My car is turning over but wont start. The engine is getting gas and everything. Their is a weird noise when i press on the accelerator. What could this be?

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Is there a spark to the plugs? If none, then the problem will surely be on the coil pack. If the coil pack is faulty there will be no current to the plugs and there will be no fuel burn. The coil pack is located at the side of the engine, remove the cap where the plug wires are attached then remove the coil pack. Put the new coil pack and cap then start the car.

You'll be good after the replacement. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Replaced fuel pump & still car wont start on 97 olds 88

The fuel pump most likely is not the problem,replace the crankshaft sensor,it tells the computer to pulse the injectors,and the spark.

Coil pack problem

So I assume you never disconnected the bat. when changing the coil that is not good ....I would say buy another coil pack and start over and make sure to disconnect the bat.......Check all wires going to the coil for breaks or worn or burnt marks in wires before hooking up new coil

I hawe a 2002 fird explorer and wont start will crank and hawe gas in system but no sparks on spark plugs

Roughly 4 possibilities. First to check would be ignition switch, by determining if power getting to coil when key turned on. Second would be coil. These days you have to take it in, but most part places will check it for free. Third it the control module. Same advice. Forth is the distributer pickup. Same advice again, except put the engine on TDC and mark the pointing of the rotor on the shaft, so that you can put the distributer back in more easily.

My 95 Ford Escort wont start, changed ignition module, ignition coil pack, crankshaft position sensor...if I change the computer will it have to be reprogrammed ? Trying to figure this out ran beautiful as...

I would listen for the fuel pump(take the gas cap off and listen for the buzz when someone turns the key on), if no buzz or whine then have them crank the engine.If still no noise then take a hammer and hit the middle of the gas tank while the car is being started(make sure E-brake is applied)If it starts it's your fuel pump.

Car shut off and wont fully start

sounds like you have some bad coil packs, something is not allowing spark, what kind of ignition sys do you have?
Distributer or coils?
either way you have to have spark, if its a dist, pull the cap and see what kind of shape it is in, no corrosion, water, oil or anything should be there, if it looks good, have someone turn the motor over to make sure the rotor is spinning, if not, your cam is not driving it, so thats a broken shaft or timing chain
coil packs, start testing the pack for power, if no power keep going back withe the wires to the relays, sometimes they get hot and have a intermitten problem at first then they just go bad, they are in teh fuse box and should be labled
