The easiest place to begin is replacing the distributor cap (and rotor) and plug wires. Next check the timing.

Can a faulty ignition switch ALONE cause 0 fuel pressure when cranking?


If you have 100,000 miles or close to it you needed or would need a fuel pump anyway.Your mechanic sounds like a knowledgeable skilled honest one, he didn't even charge you for some items.
Stick with him/her as you both will get all the problems solved.
The work he has done is smart logical work so far.
Next time it does not start right away,keep cranking the engine to get the oil pressure up.If it starts when the oil pressure builds it may be you are not getting a prime cycle when you first turn on the key some times.

Sputtered for a few days, but now won't start at all. Where should I start?


You should have had it properly diagnosed & all
issues resolved six months ago,now you may have
issues you can't afford to repair.

You obviously need professional help from a repair
shop & soon

Do you think 16oz of anything in 16 gallons of gas,
would do anything other than take your money,NO

98 DODGE CARAVAN INTERMITTELY WON'T START


intermittent no start situations generally appear when you have defective crank position sensor (since it cant get idea what the crank angle is) and fuel pump issues( since it cant receive enough fuel)

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

Ran out of gas on a 1997 gmc jimmy and 4 days later it just cut off and than it won,t crank I let it sit for a minute and than it crank but it happen again. What to do?


Cranking and fuel issues are two separate things. Check age of battery and voltage across terminals. Does it always crank as long as you hold the key but not start? If cranking okey,check fuel pressure,key -on,cranking,or if it does start. Check battery cables for corrosion,also inside cables. Do,a voltage drop test on both cables.. Need a meter or just have a shop pick it up and take care of it.

2000 Blazer Cranks, Won't Start


First of all, a diagnostic wont tell them that there is arcing involved. I am thinking it is your crank sensor. It expands and retracts in different weather situations.It should make contact in all weather situations.

Unusual starting problem, Nissan sentra '96 GXE 179K


Probably not because the tool reads if the injector is getting pulsesw, not if it is sealing correctly when off. I'd try to take a look at the spark plugs to see if any have fuel on them after you crank once in no-start. "On the floor" likely would take longer because injectors are adding fuel while you are trying to remove it.
