    Then you might want to check the starter itself and see if that is bad

Engine will turn over but will not start We checked the red button in the trunk to the fuel pump and it still won't start

First you have to determine weather you have a FUEL problem or (ELECTRICAL)Spark problem ??

Pull the coil wire off or a easy to get to spark plug wire, Lay it close to were you pulled it off of (Do not hold or touch you may get SHOCKED) and crank motor (need two people) look and listen for a spark, if you see or here a spark, then go to next step which will be to check for Fuel (gas). Be very careful when checking fuel, as most lines are under pressure and may cause bodily harm such as BURNS to EYES and SKIN!! Loosen or pull the inlet fuel line off and put rag over line. Some fuel injected vehicles have a fuel rail the has a valve that looks like a tire valve. Put a rag over this valve and push it in with a small screw driver and have someone crank motor a couple of times to see if fuel is coming out.

If NO Spark---Could be a lot of things Points (older vehicles) Modules, Coils, Crank Sensors, ECT......

If NO Fuel---- Could be Clogged fuel filter, Fuel Pump, Fuel pump Relay, Fuse, ECT..........

Hope this helps you ??

93 ford escort starts okay. but dies at stops

I would start with the fuel filter. It sounds to me that you are not getting enough pressure through the filter to open the injectors. If that is not it, move on to the spark plugs, plug wires, air cleaner, etc......May need a good tune up. Then, worst case scenerio, catalytic converter may be getting plugged up.

2001 ford escort. engine turns over but will not start. pulled the plugs and motor gets good compression,replace plugs and wires,still nothing, then i put new timing belt-still nothing, checked fuel filter...

The engine needs three things to run, fuel, air and a spark at the right moment. Check the static timing of the motor, if those marks line up. You did not say you were getting any spark at the plugs. If you have spark, then try a little starting fuild into the intake while turning it over. If you have fuel delivery to the cylinders, the spark is coming at the right moment then it should be running. Any error codes set?

Tuned up a 1993 chevy cavalier has spark won't start

Spray aerosol carb cleaner into the throttle body while an assistant tries to start the engine. If it runs for a few seconds then quits, you are not getting fuel into the engine. Check the fuses. You might have blown the fuse for the fuel injectors (possible if you removed any of the injector harnesses) or the fuel pump relay.

1989 ford escort won't start

No spark and/or no gas.

Spark is controlled by the coil, iignition module, distributor (cap and rotor) and plugs and wires.

Almost every time it will be the ignition module which is screwed to the side of the distributor and has a few wires coming out of it (about 6 wires, can't remember)

To verify the spark, by a spark tester at any auto parts store and test the spark by using the NO.1 plug wire. Be careful because if u have the 1.9 H.O. engine, it runs at roughly 35 000 volts and i kid u not.
As for no gas, either tank is empty (which i'm sure u checked) or bad fuel pump or fuel pump fuse.

Also verify firstly in hte trunk there's a fuel pump cut off switch. It's a reset for in case an accident happens, it turns off the fuel pump. I believe it's on the drivers side in the trunk on the side wall.If i remember there's an acces panel there in the trunk. Start by checking this first, then fuses.

Lemme know wut u find.
