Van no start


The fact that it starts if you spray it indicates that you have a fuel problem. Either out of gas, low fuel pressure, fuel pump issue.

It cranks, but why doesn't it always start?


What is year--make--model and engine size? The basics, if it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs, gasoline engine. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, also check for fuel injector pulse. Check cylinder compression.

Can you check for applicable trouble codes?

94 chevy s10 4.3 litre engine wont start. Its getting fuel and spark. pretty much everything is new. sometimes after a while i can get it to run. when it does i can drive it anywhere and its starts ri


might pull that cap again and see if the dist. shaft is loose
(side to side play) Sometimes the bushing wears out and the
magnet will hit the pickup,makes the spark irratic.Should have a new rotor with the cap,they also go bad.

You've already eliminated the spark plug & wireset, distributor cap & rotor.
Sounds like your car needs a tune-up, specifically, the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve, and/of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.

Components checked/replaced during a tune-up are:
air filter
motor oil
motor oil filter
breather filter
fuel filter(s)
fuel strainer
PCV valve
EGR valve
spark plugs
spark plug wires
ECM or distributor cap & rotor
cabin air filter
transmission oil filter
transmission oil
engine coolant
check all vacuum hoses and lines

Troubleshooting the no-start condition - from the 1990 Mitsu Mighty Max Repair Manual:

Priority Action Part Type -- Cause
1 Inspect Battery -- Battery Discharged or Faulty.
2 Inspect Battery Cable -- Corroded, Broken, Shorted or Poorly Connected Battery Cable.
3 Inspect Distributor Cap -- Distributor Cap Cracked or Burned.
3 Inspect Fuel Filter -- Clogged or Dirty Fuel Filter.
5 Inspect Ignition Coil -- Faulty Ignition Coil.
6 Inspect Wireset -- Worn, Damaged or Faulty Spark Plug Wire(s).
7 Inspect Spark Plug -- Incorrectly Gapped or Fouled Spark Plug(s).
8 Inspect Starter -- Starter Motor Faulty.
9 Inspect Fuel Pump -- Low Fuel Pressure.
10 Inspect Solenoid Switch -- Faulty Starter Solenoid Switch.
11 Inspect Fuel Pump Relay -- Faulty Fuel Pump Relay.
12 Inspect Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator -- Faulty Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator.
13 Inspect Ignition Switch -- Improperly Connected or Faulty Ignition Switch.
14 Inspect Starter Drive -- Faulty Starter Drive.
15 Inspect Fuel Injector -- Dirty or Worn Fuel Injectors.
16 Inspect Fuel Pump Strainer -- Clogged or Dirty Fuel Pump Strainerat.
17 Inspect Engine Control Computer -- Incorrect Operating Information Being Delivered and Sent From The EEC.
18 Inspect Fuel Tank -- Fuel Tank Empty.
19 Inspect Carburetor -- Carburetor Flooded or Faulty Choke.
20 Inspect Distributor -- Worn, Loose, or Incorrectly Installed Distributor.

I just replaced the battery. Car cranks but does not start. I dont think its the starter. what can it be?


Lotta things - first things to check are tune-up items: spark plugs, spark plug wires, air filter,
rebreather filter, oil filter, fuel filter, in-tank fuel strainer, ignition control module/distributor cap/rotor,
PCV valve

Most probable cause: lack of spark from the ignition system
2nd most probable cause: engine starved for fuel due to fuel system problem: fuel filter, fuel pump,
in-tank fuel pump or clogged in-tank fuel strainer.

1/ Have you fitted the spark plug leads in the proper firing order.
2/ Look inside the top of distributor Top (this is not the first time a new distributer cap has very small crack) or the rotor arm is fitting the cap properly. Hope this helps Best Wishes, Malcolm Campbell.

1999 Dodge Ram 1500 cargo van will not start


If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse.
If your missing several system, an example, at the ignition coil and fuel injectors, engine cranking, check the dark green wire with orange tracer for voltage? If no voltage that leads back to asd relay. I'm not saying the relay is faulty. Your computer has to see both the cam and crank sensor signals or it may not ground the asd relay. The asd relay supplies voltage to several systems.
