Ok, I just had my ignition cap and all the spark plugs and wires replaced. But my car is still taking two times to start. Any idea what else may be the problem?

    I replaced it along with everything else :/ both the oil and fuel filter. We also gave it a treatment.

When was the last time the fuel filter was replaced? A blocked fuel filter can cause hard starting.

Hello...I have a '95 GMC K2500 Suburban with a 5.7L that failed a recent emissions test. I replaced the spark plugs, removed and cleaned the EGR...cap, rotor wires look OK...truck re-tested worst

Retarding the timing will cool the combustion which will lower the Hydrocarbon number,it will run bad but after a passed e test put the timing back to an advanced state which may help with the stumble.

Engine turns over but won't start

Get yourself a female spade connector and five feet #12 AUTOMOTIVE WIRE. unplug the wire at the starter solenold. Plug in the five foot cord you made. Remove the distribitor cap. Turn the ignition switch on. Now take the other end of that extension wire and ark the positive battery. This will turn the engine over so you can watch the distribitor action. If this funtions ok, replace the cap. Now take one of the spark plug wires and stick a long screwdriver into it. Place it close to a ground source. Repeat turning over the engine with the ignition on. You should be getting good spark here. If ok here, check your fuel source. Turn off the ignition. Break the fuel line loose from the fuel rail. Turn on the ignition and the fuel should spurt out real good. Try these.

Your car should be a L-28 1,5,3,6,2,4 on the cap looking straight down at the cap:( the rotation on the cap is counter clock ways( release the distributor cap remove the 1 spark plug (1st plug closest to the front of the engine) remove the coil wire from distributor cap and ground on a stud sticking up on a bolt on engine. crank engine with a hand held starter switch. till crankshaft timing mark lines up on 8% after top dead center. remove remote start switch take a long screw driver and place it into the 1 spark plug hole (if the screw driver drops all more then 8 in. you are on exhaust stroke if it drops a couple in you are on compression stroke) it needs to be on compression stroke if it is not then remove screw driver and reconnect remote start switch. turn engine over till it has made 1 hole revaluation back to the mark on flywheel. remove remote start switch. place screw driver back into spark plug hole it should drop a couple inches. remove screw driver replace plug. and wire on spark plug now looking down at the distributor. the rotor should just be hitting the 1 spark plug going counter clock ways that post on the cap is 1 spark plug( place plug wires looking down at top of cap 1,5,3,6,2,4 on the block 1 ,2,3,4,5,6 replace cap and clamp . replace coil wire . remove vacuum advance, vacuum line and plug. loosen distributor. install a timing light and start engine . pointing timing light at crank shaft. you will see the timing mark on the crank shaft twist distributor til marks line up stop engine and tighten distributor recheck timing after tighten to make share it is still right you have about &% you can be advanced and still be ok replace vacuum and you shouls be all good.....

Im not getting spark to my spark plugs

Remove the distributor cap, so that the rotor is visible. Have an assistant turn the ignition to crank the engine over. If the rotor does not turn when the engine is cranking, then you need a timing belt or chain.

If the rotor does turn, then replace the coil.

1997 jeep cherokee 4l will not start on petrol or lpg

Here are a couple of things that could be causing your problem. 1. Bad ignition coil or ignition module 2. Clogged fuel filter 3. Clogged air filter 4. Clogged fuel injectors 5. Bad spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and /or rotor. 6. Broken timing chain/belt. Here are a few things you can try to verify that you have a good spark. 1. Remove the distributor cap and crank the car. If the rotor turned you're ok. If it doesn't turn then that's you're problem and you will probably need to change a timing belt/chain. 2. Check the spark from the ignition coil by pulling the coil wire from the center of the distributor. Use an alligator clip to attach a short wire to the coil wire contact. Bare the other end of this short wire and set it up so it's sitting very close to the engine block. Turn off the lights and try to start the car. You should see a spark jump from this wire to the block. If you don't see a spark it's likely your ignition module or ignition coil is bad. 3. If you have a spark maybe it's not getting to the plugs. You may need to replace the distributor cap and rotor. You can test if the plugs are sparking by pulling one, re-attaching the spark plug wire and seeing if you get a spark when you try to start the engine in the dark. Please note, the metal threads of the spark plug need to be shorted to the engine block to complete the circuit during this test.

No spark

Possibly the crank sensor.

Cranks but will not start.

Ignition coil or distributor cap. Not knowing the Avenger I couldn't tell you where to find either but follow the HT leads from your plugs and you should find them. If you aren't getting a spark on any plug then the perp is your ignition coil and it'll need replacing, if you're getting a spark on some then it's the dist cap, check the contacts and give them a clean and see what happens. F.Y.I. the dist cap is the first thing back up the line from your plugs with all the HT leads going in, and the ignition coil is after the dist cap.

I had the same problem recently but replacing the ignition Coil under the distributor (inside) solved the problem. Also replaced the distributor Cap and rotor at the same time.
