Mercedes Benz 2002 - C240 - wont start.

Most parts stores will have a fuel pressure tester available. This is the best place to start, as presence of fuel at schrader valve does not tell you if pressure is correct. Hate to say it, but without proper test equipment you will have bad luck trying to troubleshoot newer cars. For spark, use a timing light, or a cheap inductive spark checker pen. I got my last one for less than $5.

2003 ford crown victoria shuts off when driving i try to start it up it just cranks but wont start. Already changed the fuel pump and spark plugs and that dont seem to work. Any one please Help??

You'll first need to find out if you are lacking fuel or spark to know where to go next. Do a basic test for fuel pressure with a gauge and spark at the plugs when it fails to start.

95 olds 88 3.8l wont start i have fuel and spark......i had loss of power on the way home from work and it died in my drive way and now wont restart it does have a new crank sensor and fuel pump

It may be time for a pro to look at it. You dont want to guess wrong on a PCM. Are you sure you have Injector pulse? One side of the fuel injectors should have power and the pcm grounds them to make them open. If the engine runs on carb cleaner its not getting fuel.

My 1993 Olds 88 wont start cranks but wont kick over. Fuel prob

3.8 are known for ignition trouble but first use the fuel release valve located on top of engine under a screw cap to see if your getting fuel. It takes 4 things to make engine run fuel spark air and compression. But most likely the Ign control module or crank sensor. So try this
1) check the fuel pressure
2) check for spark
3) compression test
