Hi

Yes thats a posibility, also check the crank sensor as I know they don't always give off a code on these cars. and there will be a second sensor on the cam, make sure they are not dirty or wet as I had a similar fault with a newer civic.

Also is there any key flashing on the dash? If the battery has been changed or the car has been sat sometimes these cause the immobiliser to kick in, you will need the red key to turn that off. Instructions will be in the user manaul as each is slightly different if that is the case.

Hope that helps
Regards
Dan

Yes it can be the distributor problem.A car that cranks over but doesn't start, in many cases will be due to a bad fuel pump, a broken timing belt, an inoperative cam sensor or crank sensor. Thanks.Helpmeck.

Have a 1999 plymouth voyager that won't start. new fuel pump, new distributer, fuel in the vehicle. but the van will not start. it cranks and cranks just won't turn over. how sos i fix this?


could be fuel issue, spark issue, electronic issue. i would try starting fluid in intake and see if engine fires at all. could be fuel filter, bad coil, crank sensor, engine computer. I would try running the codes on engine and see what codes are present and see if that gives any idea of issue.

Check out the ignition coil for weak or no spark.

Cranks but won't start put in new


It may be the crankshaft sensor.Some cars use sensors that "watch" the crankshaft.When you turn over the car the sensor sees the crankshaft moving and tells the computer to send fuel,spark,etc. I am not real keen on your particular car but it sounds like this may be your problem.

1997 Jimmy cranks but wont start can hear fuel pump run


There's 2 things that an engine needs to start. One is ...it has to have spark to the spark plugs to detonate the fuel fumes inside the cylinders. Check for spark by removing a spark plug the placing the spark plug next to a ground. Use heavy gloves or rubber gloves so you won't get a shock if it does have spark. Have somebody crank the engine. it should fire a blue spark at the spark plug tip. if it does not. Your problem is you don't have a spark. You have to look at several things that might be causing the lack of spark. It could be the coil or coils, the distributer system , or the ignition system such as your switch.

The other thing it needs is fuel. the fuel system has to be workng right to start your car. Check that the fuel pump is working and that the fuel is being distributed properly.

With the brief explanation you gave that's all I can sy for now.
