First is voltage at spark plug strong enough the way to tell is by color and distance. The spark at the plug wire should jump about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches and be mostly blue in color. If your get either of these condition from a check your found your problem . If the electrical check turn out ok check you fuel pressure normal pressure is usually 40 psi or greater . autozone may lend you pressure tester and may have a spark gap tester

Check for fuel at the fuel rail. Also, suspect ignition timing--is the engine light on? If yes, possible crankshaft sensor malfunction.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

I have a Nissan 2002 maxima it won't start all lights are on battery is fine alternator is fine can you tell me what's the problem


You have to start somewhere. See if the engine is still getting gas and spark. Do you hear the fuel pump turn on for 2 seconds when you turn the key to on, not start? It should turn on to prime the fuel line. If unsure, use some starting fluid, a shot or two into the air intake, and then crank the engine. If it rumbles a bit and now tries to start, then you know was a fueling problem. Have the fuel pump checked or replaced.
If the fluid makes no difference, see if you still have spark on one of the spark plug wires. If no spark, the ignition system must be diagnosed (ignition coils, ignition control module, ecu, crank and cam position sensors.)

2002 ford ranger will not start after driving 60 miles and over and stop will not start again until about an hour


When your truck stops check for spark at the spark plugs, next check that you have fuel pressure at the shrader valve, If you have no spark check the ignition modular, if no fuel pressure test fuel pump PSI, if both are not present change the ignition modular in the distributor .

My 2002 Ford Ranger, 4.0 V-6, never starts on the first try. If I turn the switch off and try again it will start right up. It is a four-wheel drive with 167,000 miles on it and everything else work


Sounds like the fuel pump is not being primed when the ignition is switched on. Put a meter across the pump to check this. Turn the ignition on, but don't start: you should measure 12 volts across it for a few seconds. If not, then there is a failure on the fuel pump relay (probably) or worse, the ECU (in which case live with it, as they are an expensive item). Fuel pump relay is an easy swap out.

  1. Check fuel level in fuel tank, add fuel if empty.
  2. Check battery condition and state of charge. If voltage and load test below specification, charge or replace battery.
  3. Check battery terminal and cable condition and tightness. Clean terminals and replace damaged, worn or corroded cables.
  4. Check fuel delivery system. If fuel is not reaching the fuel injectors, check for a loose electrical connector or defective fuse, relay or fuel pump and replace as necessary.
  5. Engine may have excessive wear or mechanical damage such as low cylinder cranking pressure, a broken camshaft drive system, insufficient valve clearance or bent valves.
  6. Check for fuel contamination such as water in the fuel. During winter months, the water may freeze and cause a fuel restriction. Adding a fuel additive may help, however the fuel system may require draining and purging with fresh fuel.
  7. Check for ignition system failure. Check for loose or shorted wires or damaged ignition system components. Check the spark plugs for excessive wear or incorrect electrode gap. If the problem is worse in wet weather, check for shorts between the spark plugs and the ignition coils.
  8. Check the engine management system for a failed sensor or control module.
