If all the dash lights are coming on normally than the first thing I would check is the EFI relay. It is two relays in one that control power to the fuel system and ignition system. The solder joints crack ond fail on these frequently. Usually the symptom is the car will start fine in the morning but will not start after sitting in the sun all day. When the interior of the car gets hot the cracked solder joints open up and wont allow current to flow through.

The relay is located under the drivers side of the dash. They are no fun to find or replace.
Engine will not run, turns - airjer995_1.jpg

The other thing to check is to make sure the timing belt isn't broken. If the distributor isn't turning than there will be no spark or pulse to the injectors. Usually when the timing belt breaks the engine will sound like it is turning over faster than normal.

The last possibility is a bad ignitor in the distributor or a bad distributor. Remanufactured distributors have became fairly cheap and are typically the norm if the ignitor, coil, or one of the pick up coils has failed.

Under the hood there is a fuse box find the one for the computer and pull it out for about a minute, hopefully the system just got hung up and this should clear it, If not then you may have a bad computer. Hope this helped..Good Luck Tim

My car cranks but will not start RVR GDI mitsubishi


Check all fuses first, then with an assistant, check for spark with a spark tester. if there is spark at 2 plugs, check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail with a gauge. Engines need three things to run, fuel, spark, and compression. If there is spark and fuel, do a compression test, if the timing belt jumped/broke, you won't have any

C200 Merc 2009 model, engine turns but car wont start, why


same for all engines. (no engine stated, so no exact answers)
is your gas or diesel (ill guess gas)?
gasoline and not LPG or other fuels. real gas ,nor flex fuels on E100
cranks but no starts.
blown fuses, check fuses first, ( always #1 with EFI)
bad gas.,
the first check is spark , gas dont burn lacking SPark (mr,otto cycle)

any engine can run on test fuel, if it has spark (Otto)
some engines will never start
  1. lost compreesion 1 or more cylinders
  2. melted CAT converter, blocking exhaust
  3. EgR stuck open, wide, if your unstated engine has one.
  4. fuel pressure zero or 10psi. dead. must be at spec.

Engine has spark also appears to be fuel pressure but wont start .winds over ok partly fires but wont start .was running ok but just stopped and wont go.all fuses etc appear ok.no engine management light...


Recheck your spark and make sure you are getting spark at each cylinder. Check the fuel pressure by popping off one of the gas line and see how strong the flow is, if you have a weak flow your fuel pump isnt operating properly or you have a clogged fuel filter. Give that a try and let me know if that works if not I will take you to the next step.

Today my 1990 nissan terrano/pathfinder just stopped running. wouldnt start back up but would turn over fine........


Sudden death in vehicle is usually based on something electrical. Check fuses and relays with fuses. Check 1) spark on each plug in turn 2) crank sensor 3) coil 4) cam sensor 5) main relay. Put ignition on position 2 and listen at the open fuel filler pipe for the pre-pump operating. Listen for main pump operation. (If unsure what it is you are listening for remove the fuse for the pump and you nshould notice it being quieter) Check fuel rail for pressure (there is a Schrader 'tire' valve on the fuel rail for pressure testing purposes). If fuel flow is low then this could be blocked fuel filter or tired pump. Finally make sure throttle body is good and clean internally at least and that associated idle air valve is clean and working. With fuel air and spark at the right moment the engine should run. My gut feeling is the crank sensor

Engine tries to turn over but won't fire


won't fire mean won't run or no-spark at the plugs?
check for spark at the plugs, check for fuel pressure
check all fuses.
if no fuel then check fuel pump
if no spark then check ignition coil, wires and connectors, if ok then you may need a distributor

Turns over but wont start


OK three essentials for a running motor......

1. Fuel - Check to ensure you have gas up to the engine. Check fuel filter, fuel pump and fuel injectors.
2. Spark - Make sure your system has electrical current to fire the plugs. Check your wires to the coil(s) the plug wires, cap & rotor and spark plugs and gaps.
3. Air - Check to make sure any air flow sensors are connected, most cars wont run with the MAF (Mass air flow) sensor disabled. Check your air filter to make sure its not dirty. if it is it can restrict air flow and cause your motor to flood its self out instead of allowing the gas to ignite, hope you found my answer helpful!

Engine turns over but won,t start


a combustion engine needs 3 thing`s to run 1st air (check air flow) 2nd fuel (check fuel system make sure it is getting gas to engine) 3rd fire (make sure your getting spark to your spark plug`s)

My engine doesn't turn over. I installed a new


OK im assuming that the engine cranks but doesnt really start. And you tested the coil and actually seeing the spark from each spark plug wire. then my next guess is fuel flow.....you need motion (starter) you need fuel (gasoline) and lastly you need a hot spark (coil that produces a good blue or white spark..not a weak red on) If fuel is missing i would suspect a fuel pump relay (usually located somewhere in the rear of the car - the owners manual will tell you where it is in most cars) that needs to be reset. if you STILL have no fuel...check the fuse... if STILL no fuel i would suspect the fuel pump itself. The filter would NOT be the problem as it would cause engine problem to gradually get worse not just go from running to dead. i hope this helps you with this problem good luck!
