The problem is probably either a bad fuel pump or a bad coil/distributor. To test this, try to turn over the engine for 10 seconds then go back to the tail pipe and smell around it. If you smell gas it is probably a coil/distributor problem. If you do not smell gas it is most likely your fuel pump.

My jeep is turning over but wont start. I replaced the coil and it will occasionly spark and attemt to start only to soon die then it wont get another spark at all. How do i fix this??


Jeeps most common problem is with these particular vehicles are the crank sensors. May also have a bad reluctor. which is part of the flywheel. What you need to do first, Need to first remove the crank sensor which is on top of the bell housing. Remove it and inspect for cracks if you see any cracks replace it. and reset gap. You can use a small piece cardboard like the thickness of an oil filter box,tape it to the tip end of the sensor,and reinstall. After inspection or replacement of the sensor, start vehicle,Also keep an eye on your tachometer . Your tachometer should slightly come up when cranking. If not replace sensor.The crank sensor is a part of the ignition system, the pcm needs to see where top dead center is or where #1 cylinder is to determine when to spark, simply put. So the pcm knows when to fire.

Car stalled and died. Cranks but wont start all of the sudden.


You will need to see if you are getting spark to the spark plug. You can remove plug cable a d insert a screw driver and place metal of screw driver within 1/8 of an inch from metal on engine or car. Have someone try to start the engine while watching the gap for spark. Make sure you have good connection in cable. If no spark, then it may be distributed.

2000 pontaic montana wont spark


likely a bad crank sensor or bad ignition module, coil packs can go bad
to but not normally all three at the same time.if the coil packs look ok
then i would look at what tell it to fire witch is the crank sensor, the cam sensor should tell the injectors when to fire, but thats not to say they couldn't be linked in some vehicles needing singal from both for fuel
and fire to work. hope this helps
