Swinging but not starting


cranks but will not start.
test for spark at all cylinders.
test for spark still timed, #1 near TDC, #1 firing. at near 0 degrees.
if the spark is good and timing is good, try test fuel.
if spark is timed wrong, the cam belt or chain slipped.
i have no fiat data. but above is generic.
if spark is good (are spark plugs new and not color black (tips)>
ever do a tuneup this decade?
if an engine floods, crank with WOT, wide open throttle.
(pedal to dah metal)
this clears the flood by cutting all injections of fuel.
if engine is not flooded, try test fuel.

see scotty do his magic.

I added fuel additive to my fuel had timing chain done 2 days ago now It won't idle it dies and runs real rough at high RPM's. If you put it into drive gear kills motor.


Sounds like a spark plug or wire issue. Anytime the vehicle starts to skip, die, or (run rough) its usually these minor things. However if that does not help, start looking into your fuel system. Always try cheapest first. Plugs and Wires....Good luck...

2002 Ford Explorer ran out of gas put gas in and won't restart. replaced fuel pump and fuel filter still won't start. Cranks but won't start


Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.

1994 Chevy Suburban K1500 5.7L v8 157 thousand miles.. replacing timing chain on the vehicle and after replacement truck ran steady at 1k RPMs. During idle in park the following day the truck died, re


First you need to retrace your steps...before you changed the timing chain and gears did It run ok ? what was initial problem, next put a fuel pressure gauge on your fuel line and cycle your key on to run pos, dont have to try start, just run and see if you have fuel press during the 3 sec or so pump cycles, should be around i think 35-45 roughly for tbi. so if you have good fuel pressure , then you say you have good spark, then your problem is either ingition or valve timing, did your dist.come loose, did you properly install chain & gears and align timing marks. did you have somethine else a part on it too like intake, dist, ? get back with me I'll try to help you.

need to get back to basics, first check engine compression-you say that it's high mileage, so I'd start there-If you have uniform compression across the board, move on to fuel pressure at the top rail-if that is good, with spark it has to run, but make sure your distributor is properly installed (not out 180 degrees).

The engine rotates but won,t start. installed a new fuel filter, spark plugs(gapped @ .040"), new spark plug wires, and a new camshaft sensor. the car might have run out of gas. the data link...


Hi

It sounds like a timing issue if you are getting fuel, spark and air then I would look at that first. is the crank shaft sensor good?

#1 Spark plug is no burning fuel.


Either your timing chain has jumped a cog, or a valve is stuck or burnt. Best way to check the timing is with a timing light. If the mark jumps all over the place, your chain is no good. To check the valve, do a compression test. Good luck. Let me know how you make out.

REplaced fuelpump , but it won`t start . I hear the fuel pump run and I was told the inline filter was replaced. So what is rong ?


Do you have a "no start" based on fuel, ignition, or engine problems? All of these are required to be good to start an engine. Must check for spark at plugs. If o/k check fuel pressure at fuel rail.If o/k check engine copression.
